Former Obama Chief of Staff Bill Daley Joins CBS News

October 28th, 2013 11:23 AM

The incestuous relationship between the media and the current White House continues unabated.

CBS News announced Monday that former Obama Chief of Staff Bill Daley is joining the network as a contributor:

Former White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley joins CBS News as a Contributor; it was announced by CBS News Chairman and 60 MINUTES Executive Producer Jeff Fager and CBS News President David Rhodes. His appointment is effective immediately.

In this role, Daley will bring his vast experience in politics, business and economics to CBS News.

How many Obama officials have taken positions in the news media and vice versa?

I've lost count.

*****Update: The Independent Journal Review reported last month that there have been 21 members of the media that have left their jobs to join the Obama administration.

*****Update II: It turns out Daley was introduced as a CBS News contributor by Charlie Rose on last Thursday's This Morning.
