Fox News Lashes out Against NPR

Fox News is firing back on the matter of NPR’s Mara Liasson being asked to “reconsider” her appearances on the network’s shows, “Fox News Sunday” and “Special Report.”

“With the ratings we have, NPR should be paying us to even be mentioned on our air,” a Fox News spokesperson said.

Liasson, a longtime regular on the network, was asked to reconsider her appearances on the network’s shows, Politico reported earlier today.

The reason? Fox News’s “political bias.”

Liasson was approached by NPR’s executive editor for news Dick Meyer, and the network’s supervising Washington editor Ron Elving. Liasson, according to sources, does not intend to stop appearing on Fox News shows.

Neither NPR nor Fox News spokespeople spoke to Politico.

What Did You Do For Lunch?

If you’re certain White House reporters, the answer could be lunch with President Obama…

Politico reports that CNN’s David Gergen, WaPo‘s Chris Cillizza, Newsweek‘s Jon Meacham and Howard Fineman, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution‘s Cynthia Tucker, Politico‘s Mike Allen, NPR/Fox’s Mara Liasson, TPM‘s Josh Marshall and NYT‘s David Brooks, Andy Rosenthal, and Gail Collins joined the President, David Axelrod, Anita Dunn, Bill Burton and Robert Gibbs for an off-the-record lunch today.

Lunch apparently lasted two hours and green salad, halibut and pear tart were served.

Achoo! In the Briefing Room

No wonder there’s so many speculated cases of swine flu among the White House press corps…

Today during press secretary Robert Gibbs‘ daily briefing, a reporter sneezed– but not into her elbow, as the press corps had previously been advised by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to do so.

“You’re screwed Ann, just FYI,” Gibbs joked with ABC radio’s Ann Compton, who sits near the sneezer.

C-SPAN has the video here (scroll to about 21 mins in).
