The conservative American Future Fund advocacy group is taking it to White House press secretary Jay Carney in a full-page ad in the print edition of Politico.

The ad criticizes Carney for his defense of the Justice Department's seizure of reporters' phone records and e-mails.

"Ten years ago, Jay Carney was one of the most respected journalists in Washington — the winner of the Gerald R. Ford Prize for Distinguished Reporting on the Presidency — and on his way to becoming Time's Washington bureau chief," the ad reads.

"So how can Carney now serve as the mouthpiece of a White House and administration that secretly seized months of Associated Press phone records, spied on reporters, and tracked their personal e-mails?"

Carney might like to think about what he would do if he were on the other side, the ad says. "And how would Jay Carney, the journalist, respond if the reporter targeted were him?" it states.

"Will Jay Carney's conscience allow him to continue?"

Republican adviser Nick Ryan and fundraiser Nicole Schlinger began American Future Fund in 2007. David and Charles Koch have provided much of its financing. Former Iowa state Sen. Sandra Greiner is the group's president.
