  1. White House Adds New Position to Deal with Unfavorable Online Media
    By Chris O'Shea on May 23, 2011 2:32 PM

    The White House has named Jesse Lee to a new position within its communications department titled Director of Progressive Media & Online Response. According to The Huffington Post, Lee will essentially be responsible for building up Obama’s online presence as he prepares for his reelection bid, and squashing any negative stories:

    The post is a new one for this White House. Rapid response has usually been outsourced to the Democratic National Committee (DNC), if not done on an ad-hoc basis by administration officials. And it signals that the White House will be adopting a more aggressive defense of the president and his policies as his re-election campaign gears up.

    If you’re going to post something online about Obama that isn’t true, Lee is going to be the one to handle you. Considering that Lee’s first tweet about his new position included a picture of The Terminator, we suggest you watch what you say OR BE DESTROYED.

    Okay that was a little dramatic, but you get the idea.

    Wouldn't Minister of Propaganda be a more appropriate title?

    Funny. big bad obama. "If you tell a lie enough times, it will be accepted as truth". Right out of the Third Reich, although this puss Lee doesn't sound like even 1/2 of Goebbels.
     
  4. Thank goodness Jesse Lee is not another putz from Harvard.:cool:
     
  5. This is so dangerous.

    Even a brain dead liberal has to realize the consequences of having a government department regulating freedom of speech.

    Who the fuck are they to say what's true and what isn't?

    Wake up America.

    ANYONE BUT OBAMA IN 2012!

    Save our freedoms!
     
  6. Considering that obama and his gang of chicago thugs don't think the laws or Constitution apply to them, this is pretty scary. Particularly when they are demanding all sorts of unreviewable powers to shut down websites, etc.

    I mean they already have the mainstream media to shout down anyone who says anything unfavorable, so why exactly do they need this?

    And of course the inevitable slipperly slope. I don't want this sort of thing under *any* administration, but once it starts, it only gets worse. First it's just combating the lies, then it's clearing up the distortions, then changing the spin, then presenting the party line exactly as ordered.
     
  8. Hmmm... Big Brother had huge posters of his face all over the place.
