What?! That’s right. FEMA deputy director Vice Adm. Harvey E. Johnson held a phony news conference on Tuesday (story here and here) about assistance to victims of wildfires in southern California. At the news conference, FEMA employees played the part of reporters and asked Johnson softball questions. I don’t know which is worse: having a director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency who’s previous job was as a commissioner for an Arabian horse association or having a FEMA director who thinks it’s ok to hold a sham news conference for political gain. FEMA deals with serious life and death situations (Katrina, wild fires etc) and so should have leaders of the highest qualifications, NOT political lackies who do not take their jobs seriously.
