And their name was Jesse Lee!
The White House is stepping up its rapid response media operation, creating a communications position to respond to unfavorable stories on the Web, the Huffington Post reports.
HuffPo’s Sam Stein writes that Jesse Lee, a member of the Obama administration’s new media department, will take on a new role in replying — at times aggressively — to stories that paint the administration in a bad light.
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.”
Hmmm, I wonder how Jesse will handle the “Progressive” media types?
Lee is also expected to deal favorably with the “progressive media,” according to the memo.
Well, that comes as a shock now doesn’t it? I also wonder how soon he starts coming after bloggers?
