A conversation featuring former White House Press Secretaries Jay Carney (2011-2014) and Scott McClellan (2003-2006)

Our vibrant democracy depends on access to information, fact-based reporting and an open exchange of ideas—hallmarks of Seattle CityClub’s mission and the free press. Moderator Joni Balter will sit down with Jay Carney, White House Press Secretary under President Barack Obama, and Scott McClellan, Press Secretary under President George W. Bush, to examine the White House and the Fourth Estate.
