Wednesday at the press briefing, White House press secretary Josh Earnest joked with Fox News White House correspondent Ed Henry that the administration is “always watching,” despite Henry’s colleague James Rosen having been monitored by the Justice Department and labeled him a “criminal co-conspirator” in order to obtain a warrant to gain access to the reporters personal phone and emails.
Before Earnest entered the briefing room, Henry fixed his collar after being told by his fellow reporters it was sticking out.
When Earnest walked into the room moments later, he joked to Henry, “Good afternoon everybody. Now that Ed has straighten his collar, I think we can start.” After some laughter, he added, “We are always watching,” which led to audible groans.
