You Can't Make This Stuff Up

You can't make this stuff up.  CBS News has a president whose brother works for THE President.  The latter brother is Obama's spinmeister on several uncomfortable fronts, notably the Benghazi scandal, and he has a degree from NYU in...wait for it...fiction.
That reporting revealed that President Obama’s deputy national security advisor, Ben Rhodes — brother of CBS News president David Rhodes — was instrumental in changing the talking points in September 2012. ABC’s reporting revealed that Ben Rhodes, who has a masters in fiction from NYU, called a meeting to discuss the talking points at the White House on September 15, 2012.
It used to be said that frustrated fiction writers went into journalism where they continued to write fiction.  Nowadays, I guess, they go into politics.
