Fox at the White House… Not that Fox

The Wall Street Journal‘s Carol E. Lee has an A1 story about a Fox at the White House. Not Ed Henry, Wendell Goler, or Mike Emanuel, but a red Fox, which, according to Lee has been roaming the White House lawn since the shutdown last fall when groundskeepers were on furlough because of the government shutdown.

“He’s been tripping off alarms in the middle of the night,” Lee reports. “And one time he was spotted by the president himself.” We’re not sure whether the president’s reaction to this Fox, was anything like the other Fox.

TV News To Cover (And Possibly Be Part Of) Benghazi Hearing

This morning starting at 11:30, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee will hold a hearing on what exactly happened during the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya that resulted in the deaths of four people, including the U.S. Ambassador to Libya.

Fox News and CNN are planning live coverage of the hearings, with CNN bringing in Jake Tapper, Dana Bash, Wolf Blitzer and Arwa Damon to join the coverage. Fox News will have Bret Baier, Congressional correspondent Mike Emanuel, chief Washington correspondent James Rosen and Fox News contributor and Amb. John Bolton contributing.

Interestingly enough, it is quite likely that the Sunday public affairs shows will be part of the story. U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice appeared on the network Sunday shows and argued that the attack was spontaneous and not premeditated. That now appears not to be the case, and some State Department officials say they knew that all along.

Elsewhere, The Washington Post profiles CBS News correspondent Sharyl Atkisson as “a persistent voice of media skepticism on Benghazi.”

The Weekend Ticker: Emanuel, Ruhle, Wallace

  • Fox News Channel chief congressional correspondent Mike Emanuel will receive the Humanitarian Media Achievement Award at the Hellenic Times Scholarship Fund gala tonight. “I never imagined receiving awards, or [having gone to] half the places I’ve been over the years,” he tells the National Herald.
  • Stephanie Ruhle says her transition from Wall Street to Bloomberg TV has been easy. “It’s great because it’s the same stuff I’ve focused on my whole career, and now I get to do it on television,” she tells 201 Magazine. “It’s not even that big of a change because I spent years surrounded by unbelievably talented people in the financial industry, learning from them, working with them.”
  • Jay Wallace, Fox News’ VP of News and senior executive producer of news and politics, talks to Lost Remote about how “America Live with Megyn Kelly” is leveraging social media. “The amazing thing about this social media age is that it’s usage on Megyn’s show and in the newsroom has grown to a point where it is hard to imagine what life was without it,” he said. “It has become second nature in news production.”

A First and Lasts at Today’s Obama News Conference

Comings and goings for the TV press corps at today’s White House news conference.

This is the first newser for Jessica Yellin, as CNN’s Chief White House correspondent.

And this could be the final White House news conference for CBS’ Chip Reid and FNC’s Mike Emanuel. Reid becomes National correspondent ahead of former NBCer Norah O’Donnell‘s arrival at the White House for CBS next month. Emanuel is moving to the Hill for FNC ahead of the arrival of former CNN White House helmer Ed Henry at Fox News.

NBC’s Chuck Todd fronted today’s NBC News special (on MSNBC), but the network is still down one correspondent since Savannah Guthrie moved to New York earlier this month to co-anchor the third hour of “Today.” Ron Mott and Kristen Welker have been filling in, but NBC hasn’t made a final call.

  • Ben Feller of the Associated Press got the first question.

Obama to Feller on debt ceiling negotiations: “I think that what we have seen in the negotiations here in Washington is a lot of people say a lot of things to satisfy their base or to get on cable news, but that hopefully leaders at a certain point rise to the occasion and they do the right thing for the American people.”

  • NBC’s Chuck Todd got the second question.
  • Bloomberg TV’s Julianna Goldman got the third question.
  • Mark Landler of the New York Times got the fourth question.
  • FNC’s Mike Emanuel got the fifth question.
  • ABC’s Jim Scuitto, who as ABC’s senior foreign correspondent is rarely on the White House beat, got the sixth question.
  • Laura Meckler of the Wall Street Journal got the seventh question.
  • Antonieta Cadiz of El Mercurio newspapers got the eighth question.
  • Jessica Yellin was next. Obama: “Congratulations. Your first question here. No pressure. You’re going to do great.”
  • Caren Bohan of Reuters got question 10.

The newser wrapped up at 12:46pmET, 67 minutes after it started.
