Media: Politico Puts Obama Advisor On Then Off Charter Board
Oops! The folks at Politico interviewed DPC chief Melody Barnes about the SOTU and initially identified her as a charter school board member, then corrected the post to say that she's no longer in that position. They also report that NCLB was enacted in 2001 not 2002. But mostly they dutifully pass along the White House hopefulness about revamping NCLB. That's how it works. You get an interview if you do what they want you to do. Politico will put up pretty much anything that the White House tells them to, but it's not the only outfit who will post something that's being shopped around.
