"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Former WH Press Sect. Jay Carney Now Political Analyst for CNN


Jay Carney preparing for his stint on CNN

The  revolving door between press and the Democratic operatives continues. I suppose CNN was thinking that they weren't demonstrating their loyalty to Obama quite enough.

Man, how do so many people still consider the American media as impartial?

From Hot Air:

Surprising a grand total of no one, former White House Press Sec. Jay Carney will return to the spotlight on Wednesday night in a new role as a political analyst. His first task will be to assess the incredible proficiency with which President Barack Obama delivered his speech on America’s strategy to deal with the ISIS threat. Great speech or greatest speech? The anticipation is pure torture.  
“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 CNN’s Washington Bureau Chief Sam Feist. “We’re fortunate to have Jay on our air tonight to provide analysis and insight surrounding the President’s address to the nation.”   
White House press secretaries serve in a role which necessitates having some media savvy, and they are often swept up by cable and network news outlets to serve as commentators when they leave their post in the public sector. Carney’s move is not surprising, and he may end up being a strong analyst. But being a strong analyst means surprising the viewer on occasion with a counterintuitive take or two, that that often means running afoul of a press secretary’s political allies.

I guess after repeatedly lying to the press Carney has decided to move back to his old job of repeatedly lying directly to the American people.

Well, at least he has the right artwork in his kitchen to inspire him.
