Maybe you should be a little nicer to that press secretary in your office. You know, the one that always seems to come in the meetings at the last second and then gets his name quoted next to some zinger in HOH. Yep, that guy. Looks like if he plays his cards right he could one day work for the White House, or an even higher office, like an NFL team.
Jay Glazer: Packers hire Fleischer to consult on Favre saga
The Green Bay Packers have apparently decided they need a little help on the public relations front when it comes to handling the ongoing Brett Favre saga. FOXSports.com has learned that the Packers will employ former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer for one month as a consultant.
Fleischer, who was President George W. Bush’s official spokesperson for a majority of his first term in office, is now president of Ari Fleischer Sports Communications, a joint venture with IMG.
According to an Associated Press report, Fleischer met with Packers players Thursday, but the meeting was scheduled several weeks ago, before the Favre controversy flared up. The report also said while Fleischer didn’t focus on how players should handle the Favre situation, the topic was discussed.
“Obviously it’s a topic, and it wasn’t ignored,” Fleischer told the AP in a phone interview Thursday.
Funny how Scott McClellan didn’t get that gig. Uh, maybe because the Packers knew that after he’d left, he’d start talking smack about Lombardi.
