Meet the White House’s New Story Squasher & ‘Director of Progressive Media’ | The Blaze
Posted May 24, 2011on:
One more reason to be disgusted with the Thug in Chief and his pals living in our White House: a paid for with your tax dollars bad mouthing liar czar whose job is to cheat, steal, lie and fabricate any and all the mud possible about anyone who dares to run against Obama. It is designed to keep any candidate off the issues like joblessness and Obama Administration thuggery and law breaking and instead trying to answer the lies and sewage being thrown at them. Some Americans are stupid enough to believe anything and the first firm belief of the fools is “Well, if he didn’t say anything to clear it up and defend himself it must be true!” I truly hope dear reader you are not one of these.
Anyhow look out for it and know what it is. Obama has and will continue to break laws to do what he wants. He went to war without consulting Congress and it is now one day past the time when he was by LAW to either ask congress for permission, to declare war or disengage. He has done neither and Congress has done nothing to even acknowledge that a law has been broken by our President. I guess it has become so common that Congress no longer notices. WELL I DO! And then there is the fact that even if the Republican House made a fuss the Democrat Senate would shoot down any attempt to call the President for his actions. BB
Just so you know, your tax dollars are now paying for a “director of progressive media & online response” within the White House. Translation: a dedicated enforcer and story squasher that loves the liberal media.
“This week, Jesse Lee will move from the new media department into a role in the communications department as Director of Progressive Media & Online Response,” Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer said in an internal memo provided to The Huffington Post. “For the last two years, Jesse has often worn two hats working in new media and serving as the White House’s liaison with the progressive media and online community. Starting this week, Jesse will take on the second role full time working on outreach, strategy and response.”
How does HuffPo take that? “The Obama administration has created and staffed a new position tucked inside their communications shop for helping coordinate rapid response to unfavorable stories and fostering and improving relations with the progressive online community.”
If the name Jesse Lee sounds familiar it’s probably because back in 2009 he wrote a White House blog post bashing Glenn Beck.
Via a new official White House Twitter account, Lee has already started the spin on his twitter Account.
Lee’s progressive pedigree makes him a natural fit for the position. He’s worked at the Democratic National Committee and also served as a media adviser to Nancy Pelosi.
