MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Fox News chairman Roger Ailes were among the guests at last night’s holiday party for tvnewsers at the White House. Leave your captions to the priceless photo (just try to keep ’em clean, please) in the comments section.
Greta Van Susteren blogs about meeting Maddow for the first time and about who else was there:
Jake Tapper of ABC and his wife were there (my money is on Jake for getting the job as anchoring This Week on ABC now that George has gone to GMA and Jake would be great at it)….former CNN colleagues Wolf Blitzer, Ed Henry, Sam Feist (Sam was a student of mine at Georgetown Law School…he earned an A!).
Gloria Borger…Tammy Haddad (who knows everyone in Washington and more….Tammy worked at CNN years ago…and here is more trivia, I was an intern years ago for her date, her husband Ted.)…Betsy Fisher (exec producer of Meet the Press)…. executives from Fox Business Channel.
Wendell Goler…Bret Baier told me earlier in the day he was going but I never saw him….Bill O’Reilly likewise said he was going but I never saw him (and to think he is about 6’5 and I never saw him!)…Mike Emanuel and his wife….I was told there were many hosts from NBC there but missed them (I am short, remember? I don’t get to see everyone!)”
