FNC’s newest White House correspondent Ed Henry has no apparent self-esteem issues. When AdWeek asked him about his style for a recent interview, he spoke of his own sincerity. It’s also adorable that he’s already comfortably on a first-name basis with “Roger.” That would be FNC President Roger Ailes.
You have to have a certain style to attract those viewers. What about your style? How would you describe it? I’m an old print reporter, just like Brit Hume here at Fox. I started with Jack Anderson, the muckraking newspaper columnist, and he had a certain style. You had to write lively copy and cut to the heart of the story. I’ve heard from Roger [Ailes] and other people at Fox that one of the reasons they wanted to hire me was I have a sincerity that you can’t make up. I’m passionate and that has to come out. I love politics. I love breaking news, I love bringing context to big stories, and you can’t fake that. And I like to have a little bit of fun on air, and that is something Fox does better than anyone else.
