White House Adds Online Media Watchdog Position


The White House has created a new job – online media watchdog. Jesse Lee will be the man responsible for watching for and responding to any negative stories about President Obama. His first official tweet in his new position includes a creepy picture of the Terminator. He also wasted no time in going after Republicans.

The Daily Caller reported:

In a preview of what his duties may be, Lee blasted Fox News commentator Glenn Beck in a White House blog post, accusing Beck of lying and engaging in a “partisan attack to boost ratings.”

“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,” said Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer in an internal memo obtained by the Huffington Post.

Lee will also work “favorably” with progressive media outlets. I’m sure the folks at Media Matters are thrilled.

Final thought: Don’t they have better things to do with our tax dollars?
