Such a shame, really:
Call it a shot across the bow, perhaps. But White House press secretary Jay Carney pointedly left Fox News Chief White House Correspondent Ed Henry out of the queue at a Friday press conference, leaving Henry sputtering.
Henry left before the end of the meeting after trying unsuccessfully to ask a question several times, according to Mediaite.
The exchange, or lack of one, followed a contentious session on Wednesday in which Henry essentially accused the president of being indifferent to the families of servicemembers killed in action. The Wednesday exchange between Carney and Henry over the restoration of military death benefits centered on Henry repeatedly asking when Obama “learn[ed] specifically that the military death benefits would not be paid,” the tone becoming more confrontational with each back and forth between Henry and Carney.
My all time favorite Ed Henry moment:
Remember, what Henry was grilling Obama was why he didn’t run to the mics quicker to express outrage at AIG.
