A Sunday Slight From Slate’s Weisberg

Slate Editor-in-Chief Jacob Weisberg had a simple question on Sunday. “Why is Bette Midler on This Week roundtable?” he asked.

Weisberg confused (not really) Bette for FOX Business Network’s Liz Claman. Good eye – there is a resemblance. But we also see a hint of Melissa Rivers.

FNC Party Draws Animated Mix of Journos, Pols, Bigwigs And a String Quartet

Roger 2.jpgIf you’re a political star gazer, the FNC pre-party to the Radio & TV Correspondent’s Dinner was the place to be Wednesday night as famous faces filled the room adorned in spring. As guests poured in and the party reached comfortable capacity, partygoers were greeted by a giant red Fox News emblem on the wall. If they were talent, well-known or just plain glam, photographers on hand asked them to strike a pose and then directed them across a bridge created especially for the party.

Fox News President Roger Ailes and his wife (above), Elizabeth, were one such couple directed to walk slowly across the bridge. The flashbulbs went wild.

Ailes is no wall flower. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) immediately engaged. “How are you?” Issa asked. In chimed Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), one of a few Democratic lawmakers there: “He’s fair and balanced,” Cummings said, cracking himself and those in his midst up.

Ailes also laughed. He then explained to Issa, who had begun bashing conservative radio personality Rush Limbaugh, that Fox News is different. “We have a phone on the set,” he said. “Anyone can call and correct us on the set.”

Cummings said Ailes “has been really wonderful to us,” meaning the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC). “We may have a situation where we disagree about things but it doesn’t mean we can’t socialize because that’s how I think you break through,” he said. “A lot of people will talk about each other but not to each other.”

Cummings said he has known “Roger” for years. When the congressman presided over the CBC, it was FNC that worked with the CBC to sponsor the presidential debates.

Meanwhile, in walked Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.) alone. The senator briefly scanned the room, spoke to no one. Soon he sidled up to conservative radio personality Laura Ingraham who was decked out in an ice blue mermaid dress, sleeveless, with ruffles cascading to the floor.

“You look great, man” Ingraham told Specter, marveling at his appearance since the senator survived his cancer scare. “You’re a fighter.” Specter chatted comfortably with Ingraham for a long while. Later Specter’s wife, Joan, joined them.

FNC’s Jennifer Griffin was also there. In a sleek auburn bob wig, she explained that she, too, was recovering from cancer. The correspondent looked radiant and charmed the room of partygoers.
