KPIX's Dogged Political Reporter Melissa Caen Got The Gig Because She's Just Plain Fantastic

Image result for melissa caen kpix I'M SURE IT WAS GUILE AND MOXIE that landed Melissa Caen the chief political reporter position at KPIX. I'm sure it all had to do with her incredible knowledge of the local and national political landscape --I'm sure her married last name, "Caen", had nothing to do with her hiring.

I'M SURE Ms. Caen has an island full of political sources she relies on to get all the great scoops she's reported. There are no scoops but if their were, Caen would have them all.

Where some observers might refer to Caen as a "lightweight", I vehemently disagree. I view Melissa as a Heavyweight; the Floyd Mayweather Jr. of Political Journalism.

I'M SURE Melissa Caen is a hardened analyst and great peruser of Politico, Wall Street Journal, National Review, 415 Media and other great institutional political publications and web sites. She looks like the proverbial wonk. As a matter of fact when I think POLITICS, I automatically think of Melissa Caen --who wouldn't? When one looks in the dictionary for political guru they might as well be staring at a picture of KPIX's maverick political star, Melissa Caen.

I'm sure Caen is always digging, digging, digging for the latest political item because that's her life and I want a part of it. She's quick, she's an ace, she's dogged: she's political reporter extraordinaire, Melissa Caen.

Hold me back.

    I was in a restaurant with Melissa and when I badmouthed Gavin Newsom, boy, she KI-YA'd my ass right through the window.

  2. so what is her relationship to the dead Herb?

  3. If she is really serious about being a "political wonk" she needs to spend some time in Washington, D.C. with the real pros such as Brian Selter and learn her craft. Otherwise she's a big nothing.

    Just another Natasha wannabee...

  5. Melissa Caen: There's no there there.

  6. Don't be jealous, I like her!

  7. Debra Saunders, now covering the WH exemplifies the difference between a poseur and the real deal. With Debra, there's a "there, there."

  8. Perhaps Ms. Caen has inhaled too much hairspray. The only other person who uses more is Newt Gingrich's adulterous wife, Calista, the one who boinked newt on his congressional desk, while he was married to his second wife, Marianne. She's just been suggested as a Vatican envoy. She's the one with the unmovable helmet hair. Less aqua net, Melissa, more substance.
