The White House State Of The Union luncheon is an annual tradition. Each year dignitaries and news personalities are invited to join the President in a pre-speech feast.
This year’s luncheon had a bit of a twist of humor and reality for Fox News
reporter propagandist Shepard Smith. According to Smith, he noticed something a little strange about the place cards on the tables:
I sat next to Brian Williams, we all have these place cards, and his said ‘Brian Williams NBC News.’ Across from me was the new guy, David Muir, it said ‘David Muir ABC News.’ Over next to the President was Scott Pelley and it said ‘Scott Pelley ABC News.’ I looked at mine, and it doesn’t say anything about news, it just says ‘Fox.’ And I looked at Bret Baier’s and it just said ‘Bret Baier Fox.’ But all the rest of them got ‘News.’
I mean I don’t care, lunch was great. But, uh, 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.
He ends with a peace sign.
Yes, Shep, we know you’re good to go with the “news” part. We know you don’t care if it was omitted, because we know that you know that we know that what you offer is nothing that even resembles news.
Apparently the White House staff are on to you as well. Go figure.
Thank you, President Obama and your staff for giving us a little something to smile about before we have to listen to the rhetoric the right is sure to begin spewing shortly after the State Of The Union Address.
You have to suffer through a few minutes of Shep “reporting” on the menu before he talks about the place cards in the video, or you can bypass it and fast forward to 5:15.
