Lapdog Watch: White House pats Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow on the head.

Michael Calderone, the media ace for Politico who sort of disappeared when he went to Yahoo, is back, with some sharp reporting.  It was deputy White House press secretary Bill Burton who patted both Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow on the head:

Burton added that Obama does want to make sure that people on the left and right know that the administration's "done a lot" and that "we've got a lot more to do." He then lauded the efforts of MSNBC's top liberal hosts.
 

"And if you're on the left, if you're somebody like Keith Olbermann or Rachel Maddow or one of the folks who helps to keep our government honest and pushes and prods to make sure that folks are true to progressive values," Burton continued, "then he thinks that those folks provide an invaluable service.  But at the same time, we need to focus our energy and our efforts on the choice that Americans have this fall."

So there you have it: If you want your news White House-approved, tune into MSNBC.  It's all Obamamania, all the time. 

Good to see you in The Cable Game, Michael!
