White House

Jay Carney Targeted by Conservative Group

Attempt to shame him for stonewalling former colleagues in the media

The conservative American Future Fund has decided to wage a public campaign against the Obama administration's monitoring of reporters, but it isn't going after President Obama or even Attorney General Eric Holder.

Instead, it's targeting White House press secretary Jay Carney.

On Wednesday, the Iowa-based 501(c)(4) published a full-page ad in the print edition of POLITICO pressuring Carney, a longtime journalist, to stop stonewalling his former colleagues.
