The Obama administration Tuesday continued its petty war on Fox News at a State of the Union lunch with top news anchors.
Fox News host Shepard Smith was in attendance at the lunch and later spoke about a conspicuous, almost childish snub that took place with the place cards identifying the media guests.
“I sat next to Brian Williams, and we all had these place cards, and his said ‘Brian Williams, NBC News,’” he said, before holding up the place card. “And across from me was David Muir – the new guy on ABC — it said ‘David Muir, ABC News.’”
“And I looked at mine, and it doesn’t say anything about news. It just says ‘Fox,’” he continued. “And I looked at [Fox anchor] Bret Baier’s, and it said, ‘Bret Baier, Fox.’ And all the rest of them said news.”
All of which left Smith wondering if the White House is trying to tell Fox News something.
“I mean I don’t care, lunch was great,” he said. “But I guess, message received? I think Bret and I are good to go with the news part.”
