PERSPECTIVES FROM THE WEST WING:
FEATURING JAY CARNEY AND ANDREW CARD
Following the keynote address, Chris Wallace moderates an in-depth conversation with former White House Press Secretary Jay Carney (2011-2014) and former White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card (2000-2006), as they reflect on their personal experiences serving as the primary spokesperson for President Barack Obama and the manager of the daily operations of the White House for President George W. Bush respectively, as well as their perspectives on the current Administration’s approach to the media. The duo brings unique insight – Carney as the only former White House beat reporter to also serve as a White House Press Secretary, and Card as the second-longest serving White House chief of staff– and the official who notified President George W. Bush of the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
