By The New York Times Staff article 4.3.3 – 2 March 2018 15:31:42New York Times columnist and former White House press secretary Ben Rhodes, a member of the editorial board of the newspaper, has been tapped to serve as a senior adviser to the White House on digital media.
The appointment comes as a new wave of digital media companies have emerged and, more importantly, as the United States grapples with an epidemic of misinformation.
In response to the wave of misinformation, Rhodes, the former deputy chief of staff to President Barack Obama, is spearheading a campaign that is trying to tackle the problem head-on.
The campaign is called “FactChecking for America.”
The term “fact checking” has been coined to describe a process in which the Times takes a wide-ranging look at the accuracy of news stories, such as whether a report accurately described a specific event.
In this case, the article cited in the article is from the March 9 edition of the New York Post that describes an incident in which a gunman opened fire on a group of people at a party in Alexandria, Virginia.
Rhodes will join the White Houses office of digital strategy and engagement, according to a White House official.
He will work to advance digital strategy, digital engagement and public diplomacy to address misinformation, including on social media, in an effort to better serve Americans.
The official said Rhodes, who joined the Whitehouse as a columnist in March 2018, is “committed to tackling misinformation” and said that his new role “will provide us with the necessary resources to build a stronger, more effective digital operation.”
The White House declined to comment further.
“FactCheck is an important component of our digital strategy,” Rhodes said in a statement.
“We will continue to build on our successes and strengthen our capacity to engage the American public on issues that matter most to them.”
The Times article that was cited in Rhodes’ article was based on a report by a law enforcement official, which was not the official account of the event, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reported.
The official said the event occurred after the gunman had opened fire.
Rohars’ position with the WhiteHouse, however, could make him a valuable ally.
As an adviser to Rhodes, he will have a significant role in shaping the administration’s strategy and digital strategy.
He has been a prolific writer in recent years and has published more than 50 articles, according the website The Upshot.
Rivers’ position could also open the door to a more personal role for him as well.
He is married to a former Whitehouse staffer, and they have a daughter, who is in elementary school.
His wife also has a law degree.
The Times reported that Rhodes was previously a communications strategist for former President George W. Bush, and has written for the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal and Politico.
Rivlin, who was a reporter for the New Yorker and the Associated Press before joining The Times in 2016, has a reputation for being one of the most knowledgeable journalists in the world.
He also has written extensively on the role of technology in the digital era, including for The Atlantic.
He was an editor at The New Yorker from 2012 to 2016, and was one of several writers to work for the newspaper under the direction of former editor John Harris.
