My colleague Mark Thompson, a devoted reader of FedBizOpps, points out this new job opportunity from the Obama Administration. Call it the boob tube stimulus.

The purpose of this Statement of Work (SOW) is to obtain the necessary television clip service for the Executive Office of the President (EOP), Office of Administration (OA). The service shall provide staff members and senior officials the ability to review and analyze local and national televised news across the United States.

The General Services Administration estimates the contract will cost $120,000 over five years, or $24,000 a year, or $462 a week. It’s not going to make anyone rich. But then watching television never has. This gig, at least, pays for the pizza.
