Obama’s Social Media Expert Praises NBC for Helping Push White House Propaganda


<p><em>More in the <a href="http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/kyle-drennen/2016/01/12/obamas-soci…; target="_blank">cross-post</a> on the MRC&#39;s NewsBusters blog.</em></p>

<p>During Tuesday&rsquo;s fawning <em>Today</em> show special at the White House, President Obama&rsquo;s chief digital officer Jason Goldman appeared on the broadcast and congratulated the hosts for serving as a propaganda tool for the administration: <strong>&ldquo;I think you guys do this really well with the Today show. You know, the stuff you&#39;ve been doing this morning, showing stuff behind the scenes is really great...and I think it&rsquo;s the kind of thing that people look for.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>That praise was prompted by co-host Matt Lauer touting: &ldquo;Twitter recently released a list of its most re-tweeted tweets of 2015....from President Obama, we got in here on the list his reaction to the Supreme Court&#39;s gay marriage ruling last year. And another moment that went viral, the President surprised some tourists on his way to a meeting. Why do you think moments like that get so much attention?&rdquo;</p>
