An excerpt of a White House pool report from aboard Air Force One en route to Arizona on Tuesday:
Carney said he had no reaction from POTUS about the sale of Washington Post, though he had a personal one.
"I was surprised, as a lot of people were, by the news. I certainly wish the institution of the Washington Post with its storied history and everyone who works there in pursuit of quality journalism all the best with this transition."
In response to a question, Carney reminds reporters that POTUS has a iPad while he himself is on his second Kindle.
The Washington Post was sold Monday to Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos.
