The White House has named a replacement for Jay Carney who resigned to pursue other interests.
Jay will be replaced by CNN which was awarded a sole source contract for two years. Under the contract, White House press conferences will be held on the 5th Friday of each month at 11:30 pm by Wolf Coyote Blitzer, Pansy Cooper, or Errant Burnett.
Initial consideration was given to NBC and CBS but their networks were disqualified because they had too many viewers. The desired viewership, few or none, was more closely matched by CNN which has only two regular viewers (not counting the six control room monitors). This was considered crucial to the White House policy of releasing important and relevant information inconveniently during odd hours or over long holiday weekends.
The 1.2 billion dollar price tag for the service will be paid for out of revenue from a $15,000 tax per organ used in transplants included in ObamaCare.
And here I thought Keith Olbermann and Dan Rather were in the running.
Baghdad Bob ?
I’m surprised that MSNBC and Tingles Matthews didn’t get the contract.
No matter who same old BS.
I’m sure the problem wasn’t excessive viewership.
To find a proper replacement, they will have search among the lower primates..
Actually they are down to one viewer. My constipation problem has been cured, thus I no longer need to watch CNN. The other viewer is my brother who thinks it is still 1969. :)
It is difficult to tell what is and isn’t satire these days.
Looks like we're gonna need another Timmy...
Surprised Rachel Madcow isn’t on the list. He’d be a good bootlicker.
