Just in from CBS News:
Former White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley joins CBS News as a Contributor; it was announced by CBS News Chairman and 60 MINUTES Executive Producer Jeff Fager and CBS News President David Rhodes. His appointment is effective immediately.
In this role, Daley will bring his vast experience in politics, business and economics to CBS News.
Daley said last week that as a contributor at CBS, he has “great respect for President Obama,” but that he wouldn’t hold back on criticizing the administration. “I’m going to say what’s on my mind.”
Earlier this year former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs and former Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod joined MSNBC as contributors.
