How can MSNBC “business reporter” Stephanie Ruhle be in a commercial for giant banking conglomerate Chase and still be considered a “reporter”?
On Tuesday, the Washington Post’s Paul Farhi was shocked to find the NBC/MSNBC “journalist” suddenly doing advertisements for a major banking concern while still claiming to be a “journalist.”

Farhi was commenting on a Twitter commercial created by Chase Bank for its “Chase Chats Webcast” series in which Chase employee Jay Williams interviews Ruhle.

A segment of the interview was posted to the Chase Instagram page:
So, how is it ethical for a “financial reporter” to appear in a Chase Bank advertisement like this?
Was Ruhle in Chase Bank’s pocket when she engaged in a fawning interview with JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon this past August?
One thing is sure, had a Fox News or Fox Business Network on-air reporter appeared in a commercial for a huge banking concern like Ruhle just did, the left would be calling for that reporter to be fired as a corrupted sell-out.
