CNN’s Jake Tapper Joins Seth Meyers, NJ Gov. Chris Christie Sits Down with Jimmy Fallon

Looking for a laugh? Look no further than tonight’s comedy lineup where CNN host of “The Lead” Jake Tapper will sit down with Seth Meyers for his “Late Night” program. No clue yet as to what the topic of conversation will be but expect some jabs at the news anchor’s media career and March coverage of the missing plane.

Also running the circuit – Chris Christie will join Jimmy Fallon as a guest on “Tonight.” The New Jersey Governor has been a joke line for Fallon, most recently surrounding criticism of Bridgegate. On past programs, Fallon quipped ”Christie was furious when they blocked the bridge because he thought they said they were blocking the fridge” and “Christie apologized and promised the bridge will stay open for cars, trucks, and the buses he’s throwing his staff under.”

“Late Night with Seth Meyers” airs on NBC at 12:35am. “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” precedes Meyers at 11:35pm, also on NBC.

Midweek Break Check with Bao Bao

Screen Shot 2014-06-04 at 12.50.00It’s Wednesday and some might consider it the worst day of the week.

Any relaxation obtained over the weekend is far gone, and we’re only halfway through the work week.

So take a break this afternoon and join us in stalking the National Zoo’s Bao Bao!

The not so little one anymore has had a ROUGH day. We’ve been watching her for hours and even seeing her bask in the sun is exhausting me.

So sit back, relax, and click on over to the National Zoo’s Panda Cam, sponsored by the Ford Motor Company Fund.

Apologies to Bao Bao. In our initial post, we referred to her as he, when in fact, he is a she. h/t Huff Post’s Sabrina Siddiqui.

Four Former US Presidents Highlight Consumer Bankers Association Conference

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 00.42.26Former US Presidents visiting DC isn’t necessarily big news inside the Beltway, but four former presidents all attending the same conference – now that’s something…

The Consumer Bankers Association’s annual conference “CBA Live 2014: Red, White, and Banking” kicked off Sunday at National Harbor pulling more than 1,200 executives in retail banking.

Ans a source told us that four former US presidents were in attendance – which honestly, didn’t sound right to us. I mean Bill Clinton, sure, he’ll go anywhere. But George W. Bush at a banking conference? That seemed slightly ridiculous. But we do trust our source… So which four former Presidents could they possibly be talking about?

Is Ed Henry the Reason for Mice Problem in White House Press Room?

Rumors of mice in the White House have been swirling as of late, but word on the street is that they’re just after Fox News’ Ed Henry. No firm answers yet as to why, so we can only guess at this point. Does Ed leave crumbs of food on his desk? Does his work space offer an abundance of places to hide?

Earlier today, Henry Tweeted about the debacle and it’s left us wondering.

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 00.05.18

According to the White House Dossier’s Keith Koffler, “Suspiciously, the CNN booth, which is right next to Fox’s, has not had its defenses breached by a single mouse, prompting questions among veteran, unserious reporters about whether White House Press Secretary Jay Carney is indoctrinating mice to despise free markets and releasing them late at night in the Fox booth.”

We here in the Fishbowl are taking this matter very seriously. Please send any relevant photos (of Ed’s workspace, other spaces in the White House press room where mice have been spotted, reasons why the mice may have an affinity for Henry) to fishbowlnick@gmail.com. We vow to follow this micecapade until the ordeal can be swept under the rug.
