CNN’s John King was spotted at the Washington Wizards-Atlanta Hawks game last night. King, a fellow Wiz fan, is one of many recognizable faces from the DC press that are regulars to the Verizon Center, including FOX News’ Bret Baier and CNN’s Wolf Blitzer .

Unfortunately, the Wizards fell to the Hawks 106-102 in somewhat of a sloppy performance.

Let’s go Wizkids! #dcRising

Bret Baier Helps ‘Break the Internet”

Screen Shot 2014-11-13 at 10.06.44 AM

FOX News’ Bret Baier got in on the social media buzz surrounding yesterday’s release of Kim Kardashian‘s Paper Magazine Cover.

This morning, tweeting out ”mystery finally solved” next to an article claiming Sir Mix-A-Lot‘s “Baby Got Back” was inspired by J.Lo’s posterior and while Kim’s is “nice,” Jen is still the queen of booty.

I guess Bret is more of a Team J.Lo kinda guy.

I would be remiss if I did not have at least one post relating to Kimmy K’s “Break the Internet” campaign, so thanks Bret!

 

Bret Baier Talks Election Night Coverage with NYTimes, and (Why Not?) Megyn Kelly’s Hair

FOX News anchor Bret Baier spoke with with The New York Times’s Jennifer Steinhauer ahead of the network’s election night coverage, which he’s co-anchoring with “The Kelly File’s” Megyn Kelly.

Asked who’s hair is more difficult to manage, Baier answered with honesty.

“Probably Megyn’s. Mine its just Lego Hair. You snap and go. It’s been through a lot.” See the rest of the Q&A here.

But for those unfamiliar, the topic of Baier’s “Lego Hair” is nothing new. The FOX News host has tweeted about it before.

Fishbowl Five with FOX News Channel’s ‘Campaign Carl’

BUMP_300DPI_CARL_CAMERONAhead of tomorrow’s midterm elections, FishbowlDC’s latest five question and answer series is with FOX News Channel’s chief political correspondent Carl Cameron.

Cameron has reported on every major election for FNC since he joined the network in 1996, earning him the nickname “Campaign Carl.” Since 1988, his coverage of presidential candidates runs the gamut, from President Barack Obama and former Governor Mitt Romney and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), to former President George Bush and former President Bill Clinton. He also served as the network’s chief White House correspondent from 2004 – 06.

On Tuesday, Cameron will report from Kentucky for the network’s coverage of the midterm elections, starting at 6 pm with Bret Baier and Megyn Kelly in the anchor chairs.

In the meantime, check out our latest FishbowlDC Five with FOX News Channel’s ‘Campaign Carl.’

 

FishbowlDC: What has been the most surprising story you’ve covered on an election night?

Carl Cameron: “Election night upsets are always surprising. This year’s primary ousting of former House Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor was a stunner. Republican Scott Brown’s 2010 special election victory to fill the late Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat in liberal Massachusetts is another example. The all-time winner to-date of course is the 2000 election recount and all that followed.”
