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.

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.

Whose Shoes Revealed!!

whoseshoesLots of you thought you knew whose shoes we snapped a photo of Wednesday night. Guesses included Luke Russert and Patrick Gavin, neither of which were right.

The only person to answer correctly was Pete Nonis from AAA’s public affairs shop. His pick? Fox News’ Senior White House Correspondent Ed Henry! Congrats Pete, you win! You are now the proud owner of a lifetime supply of love and admiration from FBDC.

Henry was among the crowd at a reception Wednesday at the Hay-Adams honoring former Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood as he joins Building America’s Future as a co-chair.

lahoodBuilding America’s Future Educational Fund describes itself as a “bipartisan coalition of elected officials dedicated to bringing about a new era of U.S. investment in infrastructure that enhances our nation’s prosperity and quality of life.”

LaHood, a Republican who served in President Obama’s administration, was a fitting selection as co-chair. The Fund was founded by fellow political iconoclasts, former Pennsylvania Governor Edward Rendell, former California Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger, and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Oh Snap! Calmes Deflects, Henry Hit

In his presser today, Pres. Obama tweaked NYT‘s Jackie Calmes for rambling, who in turn passed the buck to Fox’s Ed Henry. From WaPo‘s live blog:

After Calmes attempted to ask Obama about Politifact’s “Lie of the Year” and some other issues, Obama cut her off and asked her to narrow her scope a bit.

‘You’re stringing a bunch of things along,’ he told her. ‘Let’s see if we can hone in on a question.’

Colmes responded by saying that her run-on questions aren’t as bad as Fox News’s Ed Henry. The comment, made light-heartedly, was met with some laughter and gasps by the press corps.

For the record, we conversed with Ed Henry at Susanna Quinn‘s surprise birthday party last Friday, and found him to be quite articulate. Mayhaps Jackie is projecting a bit…?

Afternoon Reading List 10.14.13

NBC reporter charges media bias: While being interviewed for The Brody File on the Christian Broadcast Network by David Brody, NBC’s Luke Russert said he has noticed a media bias and overall “snark” that tends to put down people of faith. Russert said, “You’re sort of tagged with this label of being puritanical and not understanding of others and different viewpoints and I think that’s kind of lazy number one and I think it’s just something that just feeds the snickering masses in that regard.”

Why you should read it:  Either he feels like he’s telling the truth, or he’s a big religious loony. Decide for yourself. Read more here.

Fox News reporter storms out of White House presser: TheRawStory’s George Chidi reported recently that press secretary Jay Carney would not answer Fox News correspondent Ed Henry‘s questions during a press conference last week. Henry got so fed up with being ignored that he stormed out of the press conference before it ended.

Why you should read it: If you ever have to work at the White House and you get snubbed by the press secretary, you should see how people have handled that same situation in the past. Read more here.

Unknown-2SHAME ON THE WHITE HOUSE MEDIA!

“Questions from WH press corps are pathetic. As of this moment, not a single tough or challenging inquiry.” — FNC’s Brit Hume. Colleague Bret Baier concurred, saying, “Agreed–Nothing at all.” Where’s Ed Henry at a time like this? Ed’s comments, at least on Twitter, after the presser: “Admin official says while President is open to a deficit panel, veto threat came b/c GOP version would only touch spending & not revenue. After President said at newser he’d accept a process like creating a new deficit panel to give GOP cover, WH issues veto threat on … panel.” And then he shot a beautiful picture of Washington. In fairness to Henry, Obama never called on him at the press conference. See his beautiful sky shot after the jump…

How Howard Fineman Spells Rhinoceros: ‘Rhinocerus’

It was at times an intense standoff last night as nine Washington journalists squared off against nine members of Congress in a Spelling Bee at the National Press Club.

Throughout the evening, Politico Deputy White House Editor Rebecca Sinderbrand (pictured here alongside Kaine) seemed to have the whole thing locked up. Calm and cool, unlike some of the other journalists, she stepped right up and spelled her words correctly, without a lot of hesitation.

That is, until the end, when, in a standoff with the unassuming Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), she lost and he won on “nonpareil.” Read more

Howard Kurtz Gets Unintentionally Ironic

In the new Fox News First morning newsletter by Chris Stirewalt today is a promo for Fox News media writer Howard Kurtz. To be sure, the newsletter is reminiscent of Politico Playbook in that it highlights their own, including Chief White House Correspondent Ed Henry and Karl Rove. Here Stirewalt has Kurtz wondering whether Al Jazeera America, which launches today, can be — cough cough — unbiased. Come on Howie, considering the network who’s wondering, seriously?

AL JAZEERA AMERICA DEBUTS
Al Jazeera, a network that many Americans still associate with Usama bin Laden videos, launches its American channel in about 50 million homes today. The new outfit is spending heavily on bold-face names like Soledad O’Brien. Today Howard Kurtz asks: Can it shake its reputation for bias and fulfill its promise of more serious news and less fluff?

Press Orgy at the White House!

The Onion on Wednesday featured an orgy scene of President Obama and White House press corps. Honestly, we had no idea NBC Political Director Chuck Todd had so much chest hair, that Fox News Chief White House Correspondent Ed Henry was so scorching or that White House Press Secretary Jay Carney liked to dress up in nothing but a bongo drum.

See the full story here. Maybe the best fake quotes come from NPR’s Ari Shapiro after the jump, but you’ve gotta read the whole sick, entertaining thing. And for any dumbasses who don’t know what The Onion is, yes, it’s the publication that writes phony stories. Please note: We’ve blotched out one of the reporter’s faces due to a dramatically naked section of the faux orgy. Read more
