(USNewsMag.com) – Michael LaRosa, who is the former press secretary to First Lady Jill Biden, has taken a position as a senior advisor with Facts First USA, a Democrat nonprofit.
First appointed as Jill Biden’s press secretary in 2021, he began serving as a spokesperson during the presidential campaign in 2019. In September of 2021, LaRosa was named as special assistant to the President. He announced his departure in July 2022.
Upon his departure from the White House, LaRosa went on to take a job as the managing director of the public affairs firm Hamilton Place Strategies.
Hired as an ABC news political contributor in November 2022, LaRosa is not the only Democrat to join the Facts First USA nonprofit that has ties with national news media.
Senior Adviser Ali Rubin was employed from 2016-2019 at Axios, as a senior vice president of external affairs. A CNN political commentator from 2017-2022 Jess Mcintosh is now the communications director for Facts First USA. Senior Adviser Maria Cardona also has ties to CNN as a longtime political commentator.

According to its website, Facts First USA, which was started by Democrat David Brock, aims to counter what it considers to be “bad-faith lies and misinformation.” The website indicates it hopes to stop the reach of Republican investigations and in the mainstream media.
