Obama Names Pushback Czar
Watch out, bloggers and commenters, here comes Obama’s Online Pushback Czar:
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:
