Did Robert Gibbs Broker Peace with Fox News?

Our FishbowlDC colleagues were first to break the news that White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs reached out to Fox News SVP Michael Clemente, apparently to broker a peace agreement. Gibbs hosted Clemente at the White House for a very quick meeting yesterday morning.

Mediaite, Politico and others have confirmed the meeting, and that Clemente brought word back to the D.C. bureau. The over-under on the ceasefire is a week at best.
