Convo among broadcast journos
This morning’s conversation is among ABC President Ben Sherman, Senior WH Correspondent Jake Tapper and ABC Senior Political Correspondent Jonathan Karl. Oddly, Tapper’s tweet on the bean incident has disappeared. Strangely Sherwood’s first bean tweet can’t be found, but he has a few subsequent remarks on it. Karl’s tweet remains intact.
SHERWOOD: I put that in the same category as lima beans.
TAPPER: I have studiously refrained from bringing up the shocking lima bean incident in a public venue.
SHERWOOD: Do not snub the butter bean!
KARL: The lima bean revelation was a shocking one.
