NBC MTP’s Fischer Thumps ABC’s Tapper

It’s not blatant, but NBC “MTP” Executive Producer Betsy Fischer took a swipe at ABC’s “This Week” hosted by fill-in host Jake Tapper.

On Sunday she wrote on Twitter, “Announcement at end of @MeetthePress – next up for our 2012 Meet the Candidates series … Jon Huntsman – LIVE and IN STUDIO – Next Sunday!”

The all-caps LIVE and IN STUDIO is a ding at Tapper, who had an interview with presidential hopeful Huntsman first this past Sunday though it wasn’t live or in studio. As most Washington insiders know, getting an interview first is the more coveted position.
