“Apple Inc. has talked with former White House Press Secretary Jay Carney about a public-relations job, a friend of his said,” Jonathan Allen reports for Bloomberg.
“Carney hasn’t made up his mind, according to the person, who asked not to be named because the discussions are private and no agreement has been reached,” Allen reports. “‘I’m talking to a lot of different people about a variety of potential opportunities,’ he said yesterday in an e-mail.”
“A former Washington bureau chief for Time magazine, Carney joined President Barack Obama’s administration as the first communications director for Vice President Joe Biden. He took over the briefing-room podium when Robert Gibbs resigned as press secretary in February 2011,” Allen reports. “He left the job last month and was succeeded by Josh Earnest.”
