Russia Obsesses Over State Department Spokeswoman
ABC News ^ | June 21, 2014 | By Kirit Radia

Posted on 06/21/2014 5:36:19 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

Russia is somewhat obsessed with Jen Psaki.

The State Department spokeswoman has turned into Russia’s favorite punching bag as relations with the United States have deteriorated over the crisis in Ukraine.

She is demonized on television. Her gaffes are celebrated widely as internet memes on Russian social media. A popular radio morning show even mocked her in a song set to a popular children’s tune.

“There is nobody more competent than Psaki, nobody more pretty, or smarter,” sang the chorus, sarcastically. The song accused her of peddling “nonsense” to journalists and urged her to “keep it up, we want to laugh more.”

Psaki’s statements are a regular feature of state-run media’s wall-to-wall coverage of Ukraine, which unfailingly slants towards the pro-Russian fighters in the country’s south-east.

Psaki epitomizes Team Obama's know-it-all know nothings.....and Hillary's All-Girl State Dept dumbos.

FEEL LIKE GLOATING? Hillary's disastrous book roll-out was managed by Dudester Tommy Vietor---Obama's van-driver with ntl security clearance who Obama appointed his NSA advisor; Vietor sat in on WH Situation Room crisis meetings.

Feel safer, now, America?

DUDESTER VIETOR offered up a truly laughable assesment of Hillary''s hellish book tour. “The Secretary enjoyed spending this week talking about 'Hard Choices' and working with President Obama to restore America’s leadership in the world,” he said in an email. “She’ll continue to be relaxed, candid and direct.”

Must be auditioning for a SNL job--producing comical skits.

============================================

JUST A REMINDER---"MEDIA MESSAGING" IS WHAT DUDESTER VIETOR DOES FOR A LIVING

FENWAYSTRATEGIES.COM
http://fenwaystrategies.com/whoweare.php

FENWAY MOTTO "Tell a story they'll never forget..."

WHAT WE DO ---- For the past ten years, we worked directly with two of the most successful communicators in history, Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton. Our experience taught us that none of the groundbreaking technologies at our disposal make much of a difference unless they are used to tell a story that is simple, memorable, and authentic. Whether you run a campaign, company, or foundation, we help you escape the daily grind and develop a message that breaks through the clutter of today's media environment, distinguishes your organization from the competition, and sticks with your audience in a way they'll never forget.

Message Development---Fenway will conduct an extensive audit of all internal and external communications, then work with you to identify the essence of your message, sharpen and simplify your story, and instill the discipline to ensure it's succinctly and consistently communicated at every level of your organization and to every intended audience. Currently, we're conducting top-to-bottom message development for one of America's largest healthcare providers and one of the world's largest philanthropic foundations.

Speechwriting----Since Jon Favreau's departure as President Obama's chief speechwriter of eight years, the team at Fenway has crafted remarks for some of the world's most famous CEOs, philanthropists, celebrities, and government officials. Our approach to speechwriting is hands-on, personal, and collaborative, working directly with you to identify your core story, conducting the extensive research that brings a speech to life, drafting remarks from start to finish, and revising the speech until you're happy and confident with the final product.

Media Strategy----We will help you navigate an increasingly noisy, fractured media environment by connecting you with journalists, advising you on the timing and pitching of announcements, and employing the necessary strategies to ensure that your message breaks through. Tommy Vietor helped craft the media strategy that catapulted Barack Obama from longshot to victor in the Iowa Caucuses, and helped manage global national security crises at the White House. Today, Fenway is doing the same for a national environmental campaign, a national service organization, and one of the fastest-growing technology start-ups in the world.

Media Training---We will help you go into any interview or speech with the confidence to impress, inspire, and make your message stick. Our media training sessions go beyond well-known tips and tactics to focus on the actual content of what you want to communicate. We help you improve speech delivery by improving the speech itself, and sharpen your answers in an interview by working with you to craft memorable sound bites to even the most hostile questions. We've prepared presidents, cabinet officials, ambassadors, and business executives for their public appearances, and we can do the same for you.

Digital Strategy---In today's hyper-connected world, one-way communication only goes so far. Your story should be told in a way that makes your audience want to tweet it, post it, and share it with everyone they know. An effective digital strategy blends sound message development with a sophisticated understanding of social media, and our team does both. In addition to our experience creating Barack Obama's history-making online presence, Fenway is helping an investment portfolio and technology company set themselves apart online.

Relationship Development---Through our work with some of the most successful and interesting communicators in the fields of politics, business, philanthropy, sports, and entertainment, we can help introduce you to potential clients, customers, and partners who can multiply your organization's success and broaden its reach.

A number of Freepers have been taken to task for their support of Vlad Putin in comparisons with Zero; but I have to laugh along with the Russians on this one. If she was standing on 42nd Street in NYC, she would be among the last to be ‘solicited’.

You can’t blame it on Russia.

We interrupt this thread for CNN Breaking News... Kent Brockmann reporting.

Madam Spokesman, what is your reaction to what... is being put out by Russian social media?

Let me check this: “There is nobody more competent than Psaki... nobody more pretty, or smarter--

Well, like the President, I do not... give myself enough credit for my good work here at State.

There you have it, the truth and nothing but the truth from Jan Psaki... the greatest State Department Spokesperson ever!

This has been another totally unbiased Beaking News Report from CNN... Kent Brockmann reporting.
