White House Hires Propaganda Minister To Squash Online Debate

I would normally write something witty and slightly obscene here, but I’m sure that would just draw the ire of our new Minister of Truth.

The HuffPo reports:

WASHINGTON — 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.

“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,” read an internal memo from Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer, 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.”

Because every government should have a Director of Popagan… I mean “Progressive Media.”  I’m glad my tax dollars are being used to deliver the current truth to me.
