Orszag engaged to ABC News reporter

Peter Orszag, the Office of Management and Budget Director, is engaged.

Peter Orszag, the Office of Management and Budget Director, is engaged.

(CNN) - The White House's so-called "money-hunk" is engaged.

Office of Management and Budget Director Peter Orszag is set to marry ABC News correspondent Bianna Golodryga, Golodryga announced on ABC's Good Morning America Tuesday.

The couple first met at the White House Correspondents Dinner last May, and the man who White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel once said "made nerdy sexy" soon won Golodryga's heart.

"[He's] tall, dark and he could say Golodryga and spell it after our first date. That is a winner in my book," she said.

The 31-year-old Golodryga, has worked for ABC since 2007 and mainly reports on business issues. Orszag, 41, is the former director of the Congressional Budget Office and a former veteran of the Clinton administration.

    What's this? A member of the mainstream media is now LITERALLY in bed with a member of a liberal, Democratic administration, not just FIGURATIVELY? Gee, who's surprised by that?

  10. Randolph Carter, I'm no expert but...

    Who cares? This has nothing to do with politics. True journalism has morphed into controversy-mongering padded with non-stories to sell add space. No wonder our empire is declining and our citizens are becoming more misinformed by the day. Thanks, global capitalism. We hear and obey. Have a nice day!

    So why is this a story? All of us already know that the main stream media is married to the White House.

    Talk of cozy relationships between press and government. Actually, this is a serious problem.

    Yes – here is objectivity at its best. Suppose there will come a time when journalists actually do something again?

    Though Golodryga could bring herself to desribe Orszag as "tall" and "dark", even she couldn't bring herself to say handsome.

    Dear CNN,

    Remember when you guys used to cover the news? Why not just set your cameras up in the Capitol and just do a 24-hour Hills-like reality drama?

    Well, there is always BBC America.
