Obama appoints Dana Perino to Broadcasting Board of Governors

President Obama has named former presidential press secretary and current Fox News correspondent Dana Perino to the Broadcasting Board of Governors. The BBG controls overseas US media outlets.

Perino, who describes herself as "always a Bushie," was Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's choice for one of the Republican seats on the bipartisan board.

Perino recently showed her fine grasp of things foreign last year when she acknowledged not knowing what the Cuban Missile Crisis was on NPR's Wait, Wait.
