Former Obama Press Secretary Jay Carney, who is a current CNN political analyst, told CNN’s Brian Stelter that the president doesn’t watch cable news.
TVNewser reports that Stelter, on “Reliable Sources,” asked Carney whether it was true that Obama doesn’t watch cable news networks.
Carney responded, “It is true, which doesn’t mean that he doesn’t get news, in a real time basis. He does. He’s a voracious consumer of the printed word, even the electronic printed word … but he doesn’t — he doesn’t watch cable news. I have spent, you know, countless hours with him on Air Force One, especially, in the conference room where we always had the TV on, and it was never, in any of the trips I ever took with him, tuned in to cable news.”
