Despite misconceptions that Jessica Yellin’s appointment as CNN Chief White House Correspondent was in reaction to Ed Henry’s exit for Fox News, FishbowlDC has learned the switch was actually part of a well-executed plan. According to network insiders, CNN brass began courting Yellin late this spring after telling Henry, in no uncertain terms, that his contract would not be renewed again this year. Ouch!

We’ve requested comment from Henry.
