I have no idea where to go with this:
Dan Froomkin reports that the latest list of White House staffers and their respective salaries has been released. Among the highest-paid White House staffers: Press Secretary Dana Perino, National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley, Counsel Fred Fielding, and Counselor Ed Gillespie. Froomkin highlights some interesting bits from the disclosure:
– After four years of stagnating at $30,000, the bottom of the payscale was finally raised this year to $33,400.
– There are fully 25 lawyers in the White House counsel’s office.
– Staci A. Wheeler, the White House’s director of fact checking, is — at $60,000 — either being paid way too little or way too much, depending on how you want to look at it.
Teh Boy Emperor has a director of fact checking ... the possibilities for snark are absolutely endless.
Well, it's obvious, i'n'it? Got to keep those facts IN CHECK. Wouldn't want them to escape out into the open...
So strange, because in the journalism biz the fact checker is like a scary, scary, thunderbolt wielding god.
