Sen. John McCain Challenges Jay Carney for Debut as CNN Political Commentator

Tough first night on CNN for former White House press secretary Jay Carney following President Barack Obama’s statement on ISIS.

Carney, who was announced yesterday as a CNN political commentator, joined Sen. John McCain for a long conversation in which they were never able to “agree to disagree,” as proposed by Carney.

“It’s not a matter of disagreements, it’s a matter of facts. And you have yours wrong, and you have distorted them,” said McCain.

Jay Carney to Join CNN as Political Commentator

carneyFormer White House press secretary Jay Carney is set to join CNN as a political commentator Washington bureau chief Sam Feist announced today. See him tonight for the network’s coverage pertaining to President Barack Obama’s remarks on ISIS.

“Jay’s unique experience as both a journalist and a White House press secretary make him an invaluable voice for the network as we cover the final two years of the Obama Administration and look ahead to the coming campaigns,” said Feist. “We’re fortunate to have Jay on our air tonight to provide analysis and insight surrounding the President’s address to the nation.” Read more

President Obama at the Podium

ObamaIn a recent POLITICO piece, Edward-Isacc Dovere and Carrie Budoff Brown highlight Obama’s recent habit of addressing press and answering questions from behind the podium:

“This never used to happen in the Obama White House, a place so obsessed with message control that the president could go months without talking with the press corps. However, in the past seven weeks, Obama has taken questions an average of once a week.”

The change in protocol comes around the same time that White House press secretary Josh Earnest took over for Jay Carney after his June 20 departure.

“The shifting media strategy is part of a new White House effort to jolt its communications operation, especially as Obama fights weak poll numbers and wages an intense campaign to keep the Senate in Democratic control this November.”

Jay Carney Hits Up ‘The Late Show With David Letterman’

Last night on “The Late Show With David Letterman,” former White House press secretary Jay Carney joined as a guest while the show’s host read off several of Carney’s past responses to members of the WH Press Corps.

Referring to times he used, “No comment,” Carney told Letterman, “I tried to make it a complete sentence.” “The Late Show” host continued with several other non-answers the former Press Secretary occasionally provided and then delved into the freedom of the press.

“Well we do have freedom of the press, and reporters absolutely should come after to public officials and demand answers,” said Carney. “But there is, rightfully, a protected area of classified information, where if some public official decided to divulge that to a reporter, he or she is breaking the law.”

NYTimes Magazine’s Jim Rutenberg Offers Q&A with Former WH Press Sec Jay Carney

carneyIn this weekend’s New York Times Magazine, Jim Rutenberg offers a Q&A with former White House Press Secretary Jay Carney. The conversation teeters on funny at times, when Rutenberg asks which cable network Carney will join as a pundit and comments that the he looks 20 years younger than his former boss.

The July 6 magazine cover story – Can the G.O.P. Be a Party of Ideas? - by Sam Tanenhaus explores reform in the Republican party and the faces behind it.

Obviously, the magazine hits newsstands Sunday, but an excerpt of the Q&A between Carney and Rutenberg can be found here.

Jay Carney Joins ‘The Colbert Report’ Before Stepping Down as WH Press Secretary

Screen Shot 2014-06-20 at 11.59.18Today marks Jay Carney‘s final day as White House Press Secretary, and to commemorate the occasion, Carney was a guest on last night’s “The Colbert Report.”

Stephen Colbert began the interview imitating a member of the White House Press Corps asking a question of the Press Secretary following a White House press briefing.

Carney referred to himself as a “glutton for punishment” and the Press Secretary role as “such a high burn-out job” after recalling an email he received noting he was the longest serving Press Secretary since the mid-90s.

Colbert asked Carney when he and ABC’s Jonathan Karl were “just gonna get a room,” which was met with laughs. And before closing out, noted that the next Press Secretary, Josh Earnest‘s name, “literally means ‘just kidding, but seriously’.”

Click through to the Colbert Report and see Carney’s sit down with the comedian.
