Revolving Door Revolves: Robert Gibbs Joins MSNBC

“Moments before Tuesday’s State of the Union address, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow made a huge announcement,” Noel Sheppard writes at Newsbusters.  “As she introduced former Barack Obama senior campaign adviser/press secretary Robert Gibbs, she said, ‘I am for the first time tonight able to introduce you as an MSNBC contributor. Congratulations on that.'”

Yeah, there’s a tough gig for a former Obama official to score. I wonder if he emailed in his resume?

Back in August of 2009, Newsbusters pegged the number of journalists to have spun through the revolving door into the Obama administration at 13. I wonder where the cross-pollination stats lie today.
