In case you didn’t know, there is now a “Director of Progressive Media and Online Response”, appointed by the White House. He is being paid with our tax dollars and his job is to build up Obama’s online presence and to squash any negative stories or messages circulating through social networks, blogs, or major media networks.

I am a small fish in a big pond but I would welcome any criticism Mr. Lee has for me. His name is Jesse Lee and he was cited in numerous articles today as being a familiar name for writing a White House blog post bashing Glenn Beck in 2009. The most detailed description I found today regarding Mr. Lee is that he worked in “new media” and has served as the White House’s liaison with the progressive media and online community.

One of the articles I’m sourcing claims, “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.”

The article went on to say, “Okay that was a little dramatic, but you get the idea.”

So, considering the history of American politics, and 2012 is going to be a big one, one side will be funded by tax dollars to play with the rules while the other side will be enforced by this ministry to explicitly follow the rules. Hopefully, good prevails, depending upon which side you're on.

These are the two articles I used as sources: story squasher director... position to deal with unfavorable online media...

1,296.1 miles to go.
