True story.

This morning, Major Garrett interviewed the press secretary at George Washington University. That’s when Carney shared this little nugget:

See for yourself (starts around the 20:50 mark):


I think if you look back at 2012 and the series of interviews the President of the United States gave, probably the toughest interview he had was with Jon Stewart. Probably the most substantive, challenging interview Barack Obama had in the election year was with the anchor of “The Daily Show.”

So, Jay, President Obama’s “toughest interview” was with the host of a satirical news show?

Says it all.

Did Carney mean to draw attention to the fact that the media are nestled comfortably under President Obama’s thumb? Not likely, but that’s exactly what he did.

Editor’s note: The interview took place at George Washington University, not at Georgetown as we initially mistakenly stated. Thanks to @JZalatoris for pointing out the error.

    They are now bragging that we now have state run media. That’s fantastic.

    • Republicanvet

      Throne lickers. All of them.

      • dukem1

        Throne sniffers is more like it.

      • DavidKramer

        Hmmmm, maybe a throne of swords is not a bad idea.

    • Ragnar__Danneskjold

      The first step is admitting the problem.

      • Aaron1960

        Awesome name dude!

    • Kelly Walters

      Not state run certainly, they wouldn’t do this for a republican.

      • FreedomRecon

        Nah, then they go back to being “journalists”.

        • NickGranite

          Then they go back to being the opposition party vice the water carriers.

          • FreedomRecon

            And conspiracy theorists.

    • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

      Not as if they never smirked about it before.. any functional adult knows the MSM is the propaganda arm of the democrat party…

      nice though Carney admitted it in public..

      no real “journalist” ever asked Obama a tough question. Hell, that’s Obama’s life in a nutshell,… the pampered brat prince, never worked, never challenged giving him the false assumption he’s the smartest guy evah…..

      the pathetic spawn of communists creating their own royal class…

      so when he has to debate a real opponent, he gets owned, bltch slapped and tattooed… every single time,… and the left defends him with the mindless zeal of true believers.

      • Republicanvet

        …or acts stoned and indifferent.

  • Hayekguy

    Ha ha! Funny!

    Our nation is so effing effed.

    they’ve already managed to close down the video!

    • Determined

      NO. no they haven’t. It is on youtube.

      Haha – you guys are so funny. Click on the youtube image on the video and go to youtube and watch the video! Here is the URL if you don’t understand how the link works:

    But-but-but, INCOME INEQUALITY gaiz!1!!1!!!11!

  • Old_Cali_Dude

    Dems are so proud that the MSM has decided to be by their own decision State Media. And bragging that in an election year President Empty Suit’s only tough interview was by the host of a news parody show…well they must be so proud at how transparent they’ve been.

    • GaryTheBrave

      Wait a minute! Wasn’t he also interviewed by Bill O, or did his handlers make sure he never got close to a Fox News interview?

  • Republicanvet

    CNNABCNBCCBSNPR and all the print media have all just been confirmed that their so-called journOlists are worse than a cable TV comedy show.

    …or that the Spite House is better at controlling them.

  • carmenta

    cant watch the vid – censorship?????

      Haha – you guys are so funny. Click on the youtube image on the video and go to youtube and watch the video! Here is the URL if you don’t understand how the link works:

      • FreedomRecon

        You are very proud of this I see. Too bad you are also just as proud that we have state run media.

      • FlatFoot

        Yeah. We’re the ‘funny’ ones. But at least we don’t eat dog.

        • Republicanvet

          That is hilarious!

        • Hey, That’s Pretty Good

          Look at the Communism propaganda in the background.

        • Suzyqpie

          Bad, FlatFoot, you are very very bad.

  • Right Wired ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Stewart won, but It was a photo finish with his mirror.

  • Beentheremovedaway

    THIS is just so, so, so sad! I for one can not wait for all the dirt and lies to come out in ten years or so.

    • Suzyqpie

      We will not have to wait for 10 yrs. Once 0bama’s retaliatory power is gone on 1/21/17 the books will start hitting Amazon. The authors will all be racing each other to the cash register. It will be an avalanche of tell-all. First and foremost, liberals are mercenary and greedy which will all to the fun.

      • Beentheremovedaway

        I have very little faith in the progressive zombies uttering anything that may reflect badly on their savior. The money guys will pay them to hush up… Any info that comes out after he is out of office will NEED to come from unafraid Conservatives.

  • Hank_Scorpio

    Another example of how the media has betrayed the American people.

      And very Fascist of them, too.

  • Frustrated Teacher

    Valerie Jarrett bragged about their control of the media during his FIRST election campaign. I guess being his biotch is not something that bothers your average MSM reporter in these days…

  • FlatFoot

    Pathologically Compulsive Liars all. Our Government stinks. And that’s the TRUTH.

  • frozeninbemidji

    I don’t think that means what you think it means, there jay.

  • tops116 ✓Quipper

    I’m awaiting Jay’s inevitable “What I meant to say…” comment.

  • nc ✓s & balances

    2012? You mean the year BHO got re-elected? The year of Benghazi? THAT year?

  • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    When you consider that until 2008 Jay Carney was a member of the working press, and his wife Claire Shipman still is, you can understand why Claire came up with that book about the difference between men and women is that men have more “balls,” in the figurative as well as literal sense. Jay knows the WH press corps is made up mostly of low-testosterone unadventurous types– but HE’s the one who’s got the “balls” pretty much to come right out and say it.

  • Hey, That’s Pretty Good

    And if I’m not mistaken, Stewart practically kissed Obama’s ass during that interview.

  • Evin

    What the F#$@

  • senatormark4

    It’s not at all surprising. You can’t find a Senator to stand up when diplomats are killed. You can’t find the press shouting questions when the government spies on all of us.

    What’s next? Surprise that Iran really Really REALLY dislikes Israel?

  • Jeffrey Rogers

    He admitted last month that the press gets their questions pre-approved.

    • WHMay

      Whether they’re submitted in English or Russian.

  • Rock ThisTown

    Occasionally, liberals slip up & tell the truth. Bet the farm Carney got a good scolding after doing so.

  • Memegalt2012

    Major Garrett, Jake Tapper, Ed Henry should all RESIGN!

    • haggrr

      Why Ed Henry?

  • Ice Cold Troll

    LOL yeah, kinda like THIS hard-hitting, incisive, and provocative story on Carney–

    • Zefal

      Highlighting what carney said doesn’t equal a story nor do they claim it as such. Comprehend much?

      • Ice Cold Troll

        Shut up, toadstool.

  • Zefal

    Was my image removed? Just asking… thought it might be a little provocative.

  • lainer51

    Finally, Carney was right about something.

  • DavidKramer

    When asked how low can you go, the media responded, we can slide right under Obama’s feet and lift him on our backs.

    Run-of-the-mill collectivists routinely attempt to confuse roads and fire departments with collectivism by referring to them as “socialism”.
