    Default Bloomberg: Former White House Secretary Jay Carney Still Considering PR Role at Apple


    A recent rumor claiming former White House Secretary Jay Carney is in the running to head up public relations at Apple, which was thought to have been put to bed last week, was recently resurrected, with a new report saying he is still considering the position. The report, citing a friend of Carney’s claims the former press secretary has indeed talked with Apple over taking over former PR chief Katie Cotton’s seat, but hasn’t decided on the matter.

    When Bloomberg reached out to Carney, he was cagey about his future job prospects and declined to clear up the Apple rumor. He said the following regarding the matter:

    I'm talking to a lot of different people about a variety of potential opportunities.
    Just last week, Re/code reported that Carney was in talks to become Apple’s next vice president of corporate communications but the rumor was refuted the next day by well-connected journalist Jim Dalrymple, who said the following:

    Nope. Tim Cook has never even met Jay Carney.
    It was previously reported in June that Apple CEO Tim Cook was personally on the hunt for “high-profile external candidates” to replace Cotton after the PR vet retired from the company in May. Speculation at the time pegged the longtime Apple spokespeople Steve Dowling or Natalie Kerris as top candidates to fill the still-vacant position. For those of you who didn’t know, Carney, Time Magazine’s former Washington bureau chief, stepped down as President Barack Obama’s press secretary in June after three years in office. Prior to his time with Obama, Carney served as head of communications for Vice President Joe Biden.

    We’ll have to wait and see what happens.

    Sounds like his typical BS answer he gives at the press address Ask him a simple yes or no question, and give you BS run around answer. This guy is a idiot!

    This guy was the tip of the spear when it came to lies and obfuscation in the Obama White House. The fact that I've never seen nor heard of the former PR head at Apple, Cotton, means we likely (and hopefully) won't see much of Carney, either - If he gets the position. Jeez, I hope not.
