Does the White House have a division assigned to Bully Reporters?

From White House Dossier.

The Obama White House has long practiced the tactic of bullying reporters who write stories it doesn’t like. I was on the receiving end of it plenty of times during my time covering President Obama for Roll Call.

It’s a tactic, a form of suppression of speech by the openness administration that I’ve written about before.

The appointment of Jesse Lee to a White House position that involves responding to negative stories seems likely to formalize the strategy and signals that such behavior is likely to escalate as the campaign begins, not decline.

While the tactic is done frequently, what’s rare is a mainstream media reporter with the guts to talk about it.
