According to Citizen Free Press, “Former CNN producer Jennifer Baskerville registered as a “Foreign Agent” to provide the Chinese Communist Party’s U.S. Embassy with “public relations and media outreach. Baskerville, who worked as a producer out of CNN’s D.C. headquarters from 1996 to 2004, leveraged those credentials to join lobbying and consulting firm Qorvis as a Managing Director.”
Baskerville registred as an Employee of the People’s Republic of China in 2004, who at that time had extensive experience as a CNN producer.

In 2013, CNN published the following article about Baskerville:
“Following the release of Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg‘s new book, “Lean In” and, weeks after Yahoo CEO’s Marissa Mayer‘s decision to ban telecommuting, CNN asked 10 women to describe when they realized they could—or could not—have it all. The women responded with how they find their own work-life balance and what they have to sacrifice to achieve that balance.
Two years ago, Baskerville moved to California to get married. Thanks to Qorvis’ flexibility, Baskerville is able to live in San Diego and work from home. She travels to Washington once a month for client meetings.
Baskerville told CNN, “Thanks to a company that values their employees, the wonders of technology and an understanding husband, I have my all—my dream job, living in paradise with my amazing husband and a happy dog.”

“Baskerville has worked for Qorvis for more than nine years(written in 2013) and specializes in media relations, media training and strategy,”CNN said.
According to her Qorvis biography, she also has extensive contacts with most mainstream media sources, where she can push her client’s Communist messaging, including Public Broadcasting,a taxpayer-funded service.
The Bio says, “Baskerville has secured extensive media coverage for her clients on 20/20, NBC Nightly News, PBS, CNN, FOX, National Geographic Channel, Discovery Channel, The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, the Los Angeles Times, Bloomberg, Associated Press, Reuters, National Journal, U.S. News and World Report and numerous local newspapers and television newscasts.”
We looked into what kind of company Qorvis is, who has employed a Communist Party lobbyist and marketing professional for campaign and media campaigns.

According to Focus Washington.com:
“Qorvis Communications founder and president Michael Petruzzello has been named by Washington Life as one of the most powerful and influential people in Washington, D.C. Every year, the magazine puts together a roster of journalists, government officials, lawyers, policy advocates, business tycoons, and “outside influencers” who play crucial roles in shaping domestic and international politics, as well as the economy and culture in the nation’s capital.”

Who is this guy? Here is the company WIKI…. notable is who they represent, Saudi Arabia, doing messaging after 9/11.
A simple search for Petruzzello found ad article in PR Week, that said:
“In the wake of Shandwick’s ouster of US CEO Michael Petruzzello, industry wags pondered why the firm abruptly dumped the man responsible for a good deal of Shandwick’s recent growth.
