Shep Smith Acknowledges WH Dig with Place Card Lacking ‘News’ with FOX

On his Tuesday broadcast, Fox News Channel’s Shepard Smith held up a place card from his lunch at the White House and said, “So White House, if you’re watching, thank you for the lunch again. That was really delicious.  My only regret is I didn’t have the wine. I sat next to Brian Williams, and we all have these place cards. His said Brian Williams, NBC News. Across from me was David Muir, the new guy on ABC, it said David Muir, ABC News. Over next to the president was Scott Pelley and his said Scott Pelley, CBS News. I looked at mine and it doesn’t say anything about news. It just says Fox. I looked at Bret Baier’s and it said Bret Baier Fox, but all the rest of them got news. I mean I don’t care. Lunch was great. I guess there’s a message received but I think Bret and I are good to go with the news part, and I think you know that too.”
