JAY CARNEY: “I NEVER TOLD A LIE!”

JAYCARNEY

White House press secretary Jay Carney says he never lied to the press corps during his three and a half years as the top presidential spokesman.

“Honestly, its not because I’m a paragon of virtue, it’s because that would be a terrible way to do the job,” Carney told reporters at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast.

 The press secretary admitted that he sometimes could or did not want to answer questions posed by reporters.

“What you do when you can’t say is you don’t,” Carney said. ”You take the question or you explain what you can.”

Carney will leave his post as press secretary on Friday. His deputy, Josh Earnest, is slated to take over his position.

Opponents of the administration have accused the longtime press secretary of occasionally playing fast and loose with the truth. House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) blasted him last summer as a “paid liar” for his explanation of the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative political groups.

“The administration is still, their paid liar, their spokesperson, picture behind, he’s still making up things about what happened and calling this local rogue,” Issa told CNN.

Other Republicans, including Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) defended Carney during the flap.

“Let’s not make it personal. Jay Carney is not the issue here. He’s the spokesman for the White House,” Graham told Fox News Radio at the time.

Carney, who was once a reporter for Time magazine, hasn’t made a decision yet on his future, though there have been reports that he’s been offered a position at CNN.

Carney said Thursday that there were internal discussions in the White House about his taking the job as U.S. Ambassador to Russia.

But Carney said he never spoke to President Obama about the possibility, and that he was “lobbying against” consideration for the job.
