NY DAILY NEWS reports:
For fallen White House aides, the rallying cry apparently is John Podesta to the rescue! The Obama administration’s former green jobs czar Van Jones is headed back to Podesta’s Center for American Progress after stepping down from his White House post four days ago amid controversy over his leftist affiliations, the Daily News has learned.The brashness with which the left is operating never seems to disappoint. This means that at best Podesta didn't know about Jones' past before but would have had no problem with it even if he did. At worst (and most likely), he knew about Jones' past then and approved.
Either way, this means that the man Barack Obama put in charge of his transition team has no problem with the views of an AVOWED COMMUNIST, TRUTHER, and supporter of COP KILLER Mumia Abu Jamal.
Guess who else has experience as a Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress. None other than FCC Diversity Czar, MARK LLOYD.
Lloyd is on record (and video) praising the way Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez managed to successfully shut down media outlets that aired opposing views. He also wants to implement a plan that would ultimately bankrupt private broadcasters by requiring them to DOUBLE THEIR EXPENSES in the form of licensing fees.
