Jay Carney Twice Ignored a Fox News Reporter—And This Is How It Ended
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney during a press briefing Friday afternoon repeatedly ignored Fox New’s Ed Henry, prompting the reporter to walk out of the meeting.
Carney called on nearly every reporter in the room before Henry even tried to ask a question. And when Henry did try, all he could get out was “Jay” before Carney turned his attention to The Chicago Tribune’s Christi Parsons.
Henry shook his head.
The Fox News reporter tried once more to ask a question. The White House press secretary once again ignored it.
Henry smiled politely, got up, and walked out of the briefing.
“While Fox News hasn’t always gotten a question at presidential press conferences, this was the first time in memory that a Fox News reporter wasn’t called on at a daily briefing,” Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher notes.
Do you think this was just an oversight on Carney’s part or do you think this is the beginning of a White House blackout on Fox News reporters?
It was no accident. Remember Ed and Jay got into a little verbal scuffle not too long ago. Jay Carney is nothing more than a petulant child and bully. He and the administration will try once again to block out FNC, but it will not work. The Fox reporters (not talking personalities and opinionators) are top in the field of journalism and are well respected.
When Carney disregarded him, Ed Henry looked at the reporter next to him and both smiled ironically.
Just makes the O administration look petulant, vindictive, and biased. What else is new?
I feel sorry for Jay Carney's friends. He's so manipulative and never tells the truth. I would watch my stuff.
Luckily, FNC reporters wouldn't hold that against you.
They absolutely would do whatever they could to save your life.
I wouldn't trust a FOX reporter if my life depended on it. That's one 'trust fall" I won't hold my breathe for.
Only when she is in a life and death situation.
She would also make sure the paramedics and doctors are all liberals, and that they had voted for Obama twice, before she would trust them.
Whereas most people would choose a surgeon based on their skills, she would ask them if they indeed read Democratic Underground and Politico every day.
She would tell them to make sure she bleeds blue, and not red. And it would be all over.
I wouldn't trust FOX if my life depended on it. That's one 'trust fall" I won't hold my breathe for.
Do you use such horrible judgment in all of life's moments?
