Howie Kurtz and Matt Lewis Make Up

FishbowlDC’s Betsy Rothstein caught up with Daily Beast’s Howard Kurtz and Daily Caller’s Matt Lewis after their on air confrontation on Kurtz’s “Reliable Sources” Sunday. As we reported, Kurtz and Lewis sparred over the White House interruption last Friday.

Kurtz argued that Daily Caller reporter Neil Munro, “had no business interrupting the president.” Lewis disagreed: “The press corps should be a little less deferential to authority. He did the right thing.” Kurtz then accused Lewis of taking that line to “defend your guy,” Lewis.

Today, FBDC reports there’s no love lost. “And if it helps us mend fences,” says Lewis, “[Kurtz] is welcome to stop by the Daily Caller for a beer summit, anytime!”

Kurtz adds, “I will absolutely have Matt Lewis back many times. He’s a smart guy, a good guest and is welcome to disagree with me anytime.”

Pres. Obama to Daily Caller Reporter: ‘I Didn’t Ask For An Argument’

Pres. Obama wasn’t expecting questions during his Rose Garden appearance announcing partial reform to current immigration laws. But he got one. And it got heated. Just as the president was telling the crowd, “it is the right thing to do,” a member of the press corps interupted with a question. “Excuse me, sir,” said Obama. “It’s not time for questions, sir. Not while I’m speaking.”

A few minutes later, the president got back to his questioner:

“The answer to your question, sir, and the next time I prefer you let me finish my statements before you ask this question is this is the right thing to do for the American people. I didn’t ask for an argument,” said Obama. “I’m answering your question. It’s the right thing to do for the American people.”

The questioner is Neil Munro a reporter at Tucker Carlson‘s Daily Caller. Munro, interestingly, was not born in the U.S., but in Ireland. The changes to the immigration law will cease deportations of anyone who was under age 16 when they were brought to the U.S. and raised here without legal documentation.
