Carney Snaps at Reporter for Questioning 77 Cent Stat: ‘From Reuters, I Expect Something a Little More Precise’

Later, when pressed by Ed Henry of Fox News why their arbitrary metric is a problem but the White House’s own pay gap is not, Carney said the administration is “hard at work” to remedy the difference, which is a result of differing seniority and experience between male and female staffers. He assured reporters there is no discrimination at the White House.

As for the 77-cent line, Carney conceded that there are “a lot of things go into that discrepancy” besides alleged discrimination.
