ABC’s Jonathan Karl on Pushing Beyond the Official White House Line

How does a top network reporter break through the official White House talking points? ABC’s Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl has been busy trying — and in the process has gotten into it twice over the last month with White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, including just yesterday.

In this installment of Media Beat, Karl spoke to TVNewser’s Jordan Chariton about the need to remain skeptical of what the White House is telling you, regardless of who’s in office. Karl also revealed some interesting behind-the-scenes tidbits from campaign 2012. You might be surprised to know how little Karl saw candidate Mitt Romney—even when flying on the same plane.

Bipartisan Bald Couple on Daily Rundown

Before getting down to the serious business of discussing the fiscal cliff, RNC Spokesman Sean Spicer and DNC Spokesman Brad Woodhouse showed up on MSNBC’s “The Daily Rundown” this morning to show off their newly shorned locks.

Over the weekend, the odd couple turned up on ABC’s “This Week” to have their heads shaved by ABC’s Jonathan Karl for a good cause: St. Baldricks, an organization which raises money to cure childhood cancer. Spicer made a presidential campaign bet with Woodhouse and lost. Ultimately both agreed to shave their heads to donate funds.

“That’s a scary sight,” cracked Woodhouse as he watched a replay of ABC “This Week” segment in which Karl shaved them. “I’m never making a bet without consulting Nate Silver,” Spicer chimed in.

Host Chuck Todd couldn’t resist razzing them. “It’s a good thing you’re both already married,” he said, examining their new look.

Woodhouse shot back, “They shave celebrity heads. They would shave yours, I’m sure. I have clippers in the car.” Todd quickly moved on to the fiscal cliff.

Spokesmen to Go Bald on ABC’s ‘This Week’

DNC spokesman Brad Woodhouse and RNC spokesman Sean Spicer will appear on ABC News’ “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” this Sunday, November 25, where they’ll get their heads shaved for a good cause.

“This will be a first,” Spicer told FishbowlDC, explaining he has never shaved his hair off before. “Everyone at the RNC poured their heart is soul into this election so losing was tough, but knowing that something positive is coming of it makes the disappointment of election night a little easier.” Asked how his wife was feeling about the prospect of him going bald, he replied, “My wife ensured holiday photos were taken, but as a mother she is supportive of any effort that furthers research of childhood cancer.”

Host George Stephanopoulos, with the help of ABC News’ Jonathan Karl, who will be in charge of the shaving, will bring… Read more

SHERWOOD: I put that in the same category as lima beans.

TAPPER: I have studiously refrained from bringing up the shocking lima bean incident in a public venue.

SHERWOOD: Do not snub the butter bean!

KARL: The lima bean revelation was a shocking one.
