DOJ Spokesman Denies Departmental “Blog Squad.”   In his “Water Cooler” column for the Washington Times (10/9), Kerry Picket writes, “Various conservative blogs are talking about the existence of a ‘blog squad’ at the U.S. Justice Department. The website, the Muffled Oar writes that a blogging unit formed within the Department of Justice to counter websites with posts, articles, and user comments critical of the Obama administration. Matthew Miller Director of Public Affair at the Justice Department told the Washington Times,: ‘There is no “blog squad”. There is Tracy [Russo] who handles online media. It’s the policy of the office of public affairs to not post anonymous comments. We have not seen any evidence that anyone does post comments, and if we did have evidence of that, people would no longer work here.’ Mr. Miller countered accusations of the existence of a ‘blog squad’ pointing to what he says is lack of evidence.”
