MSNBC Hires President's Mouthpiece

While MSNBC continues to flounder in the ratings and seem to be doing nothing on air to change that, the struggling network is getting a new PR flack.

Rachel Racusen is leaving her Associate Communications Director gig at the White House and headed to the liberal network. 

Racusen will be based in NYC and report directly to MSNBC boss Phil Griffin (while he still has a job at least).

Racusen has been on Obama's staff in one for or another for years and will now be in charge of making MSNBC look like they know what the hell their doing.

Good luck with that.
