In his presser today, Pres. Obama tweaked NYT‘s Jackie Calmes for rambling, who in turn passed the buck to Fox’s Ed Henry. From WaPo‘s live blog:
After Calmes attempted to ask Obama about Politifact’s “Lie of the Year” and some other issues, Obama cut her off and asked her to narrow her scope a bit.
‘You’re stringing a bunch of things along,’ he told her. ‘Let’s see if we can hone in on a question.’
Colmes responded by saying that her run-on questions aren’t as bad as Fox News’s Ed Henry. The comment, made light-heartedly, was met with some laughter and gasps by the press corps.
For the record, we conversed with Ed Henry at Susanna Quinn’s surprise birthday party last Friday, and found him to be quite articulate. Mayhaps Jackie is projecting a bit…?
