Obama has created a "rapid response media operation" to respond to unfavorable stories about the annointed one on the web. In charge of this task is Jesse Lee, designated as the Director of Progressive Media. Meet Jesse Lee, A neo-leftie punk whose claim to fame heretofore is a one-page anti-Iraq war leaflet distributed in cafeterias, coffee shops and libraries across the country. Wow, what a resume. I bet he wore a Che T-shirt the whole time. How many kids in the communist party did Obama sort through before he came up with this prize? Lee, by the way, is married to Nita Chaudhary, one of the people responsible for the 2007 MoveOn.org newspaper ad that maligned General David Petraeus as General Betray Us. Progressive media: Leftwing "yes" people who have their heads so far up Obama's ass they can taste what he had for breakfast.
This latest tactic is part of Obama's net neutrality initiative and various other efforts to squelch freedom of speech. At one point during the 2008 campaign, Obama wanted critics jailed for daring to question his corruption. His lawyers sent threatening letters to station managers over NRA ads, and he tried to persuade the Justice Department to prosecute the American Issues Project for its accurate, spot-on ad, that described his friendship with domestic terrorist Bill Ayers.
Obama has had most of the MSM kissing his ass since the 2008 campaign. The leftwing media echo chamber has conducted conference calls over political strategy on his behalf. Some were given unprecedented access to his family for photo ops. One of them even bowed to him the way he bows to Islamic despots.
One notable event took place during an MSNBC Morning Joe broadcast, which featured a discussion of the White House targeting Fox News. An email arrived from the White House on the air to correct them about an exchange between former WH spokesperson Robert Gibbs and Jake Tapper. One of the commentators, Mika Brezinsky actually made the "correction." Obviously, B. Hussein doesn't think the MSM flattery is enough, so he spent $80,000 a week in taxpayer funds to staff his media offices. Oh sure, they've had their lover's spats here and there. But when it comes down to it, most of them are not ready to get up off their knees and wipe their chins.
