Former White House Press Secretary Jay Carney will start tonight as a commentator for CNN, “analyzing” President Obama’s address to the nation on ISIS. I assume they are paying him sick amounts of money.
From the network:
Jay Carney, former press secretary to President Barack Obama, will join CNN as a political commentator, it was announced today by Sam Feist, senior vice president and Washington bureau chief. Carney will contribute to programs across the network as well as special political programming, beginning tonight as the President reveals his ISIS strategy to the nation.
Well, so much for unbiased commentary tonight on CNN. it’s a sign of CNN’s further decline – or journalism’s further decline – that they would put Carney on to talk about the guy who was his boss just a few weeks ago. I mean, maybe ease him into he job with other issues before they let him hold forth on Obama.
Whatever, people will get where he’s coming from.
