Ex-reporter Douglass settles in as Obama’s spokeswoman

Washington Post
Linda Douglass tells Howard Kurtz that it wasn’t until a 45-minute job interview with Barack Obama last month that she decided to leave journalism for good and go to work for the candidate. “The thing that really made me feel at peace with the decision is this conversation we had about telling the truth,” she says. “He wants me to tell the truth. Coming from a background in journalism as opposed to PR, that was really the thing I wanted to hear.”
