Shouldn't President Obama be honest and call his new department "The Ministry of Truth"?
The president just formed a new “press” office. It will be called the Progressive Media & Online Response department.
It’s purpose will be to “correct” unfavorable comments made about the president on internet sites.
(BTW, it will be headed by Jesse Lee, who 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.” Not whom I would call a US cheerleader. )
Anyway, isn’t this just the “Ministry of Truth”? Why not call it that?
