On the topic of transparency, Earnest said, “If there’s ever a day when the White House press corps sits back and says, ‘You know, we’re getting all the information that we need from the White House Press Office,’ then everybody in the White House press corps would not be doing their jobs, right?”

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.

 

Jay Carney Rocks Out for Final White House Press Briefing

Screen Shot 2014-06-18 at 14.40.42Today marks the final day of Jay Carney‘s tenure as White House Press Secretary. And just prior to his final White House press briefing, Carney took to the podium as Guided by Voices’ “Motor Away” played.

“I have loved every minute of every day, even the many minutes of many days I spent in this room,” Carney said before concluding. “As I think most of you now understand and believe, it’s always a pleasure no matter how hard it can get in here, no matter how hot it can be and contentious it sometimes is.

Carney, 49, announced his intentions to step down in late May, the same day that President Obama accepted the resignation of VA Secretary Eric Shinseki. Replacing him is the now former Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest.

The former Washington bureau chief of TIME magazine has yet to announce his plans are post-White House. Assume finding a job won’t be too hard.
