WaPo to Fox News PR: Thanks But No Thanks

In what is probably the most stinging media news of the day, WaPo‘s Al Kamen reports that Fox News pitched a really super fun profile idea of their newest star, former CNNer Ed Henry. Henry left CNN for FNC after CNN decided in the spring that his contract would not be renewed.

Kamen wrote of the PR pitch initiated by Fox News to a WaPo reporter.

“His profile is rising at Fox, she said, because he’s ‘not afraid to ask the tough questions no matter where he works.’ Well, that’s true. … Think we’ll take a pass. But we’ll check with David Remnick at the New Yorker to see whether they have any interest.”

Now that’s gotta hurt.
