Caption Contest: Rachel Maddow and Roger Ailes at Last Night’s White House Christmas Party

MaddowAiles_12.16.jpgMSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Fox News chairman Roger Ailes were among the guests at last night’s holiday party for tvnewsers at the White House. Leave your captions to the priceless photo (just try to keep ‘em clean, please) in the comments section.

Greta Van Susteren blogs about meeting Maddow for the first time and about who else was there:

Jake Tapper of ABC and his wife were there (my money is on Jake for getting the job as anchoring This Week on ABC now that George has gone to GMA and Jake would be great at it)….former CNN colleagues Wolf Blitzer, Ed Henry, Sam Feist (Sam was a student of mine at Georgetown Law School…he earned an A!).

Gloria BorgerTammy Haddad (who knows everyone in Washington and more….Tammy worked at CNN years ago…and here is more trivia, I was an intern years ago for her date, her husband Ted.)…Betsy Fisher (exec producer of Meet the Press)…. executives from Fox Business Channel.

Wendell GolerBret Baier told me earlier in the day he was going but I never saw him….Bill O’Reilly likewise said he was going but I never saw him (and to think he is about 6’5 and I never saw him!)…Mike Emanuel and his wife….I was told there were many hosts from NBC there but missed them (I am short, remember? I don’t get to see everyone!)”

The Press Meets Betsy Fischer

RussertFischer_8.25.jpgLet this be a lesson to you kids: being organized can get you all the way to the TV top. Meet the Press EP Betsy Fisher is featured in her hometown newspaper, The Times-Picayune. One of her High School teachers remembers her as, “the most organized human being I have ever met in my entire life.”

Fisher, who started as an intern on MTP, talks about her Louisiana roots (she missed her 20th class reunion last month because MTP went to London to interview Barack Obama); and the loss of her boss Tim Russert. “I feel very, very lucky to have spent so many years with him, learning from him, being friends with him. That’s what gives me a lot of comfort,” Fischer says.

“I’m sure I will always, whenever I have a major decision to make, think in my head, ‘What would Tim say? What would Tim do?’ That will be with me, I know, forever.”
