WASHINGTON  — US President Barack Obama on Thursday chose a White House insider and a former Time magazine journalist to be his next press secretary.

Jay Carney, 45, will provide one of the most public faces of the White House to the American public as Obama's presidency pivots toward re-election in 2012. He replaces Robert Gibbs, who has also held an outsized presence as a counselor to Obama for the last several years.
