Peter Ragone, the mayor's press secretary, gets a new title: director of communications and planning.
"This is all Phil's structure," Ragone said, referring to Ginsberg and describing the moves as routine when a new chief of staff takes over. (SF Chronicle 2/9/07)
So, Ragone uses sock puppets all over the Internet, and then lies to reporters about it, and then gets a promotion? Throw in the fact that he was also deceptive (some would say lying here too) about the alcohol story, and you have a "director of communications and planning" that reporters don't trust. But sure, why not promote him?
