Ed Henry, who recently left CNN to become Fox News’ senior White House Correspondent, spoke with Don Imus about his decision to move to the top rated cable news network.
Imus: When did you come over from the dark side, CNN?
Henry:You know I just came over a few weeks ago and last Monday was my first day and the president gives a prime time address on the debt deal and it was sort of a baptism by fire, but that’s the only way to do it. I root for the Yankees and so I like to play for a first place team. Now technically the Yankees are not in first place right now, I have to admit, they’re a game behind the Red Sox, but there’s no doubt about where Fox is.
What does that make CNN? The Astros, Orioles or any other team that is a cellar dweller this year? Ouch!
As for his dustup last week with White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, Henry said that his only problem with Carney “Is that he is a Red Sox fan,” but otherwise is a pretty good guy, showing that he certainly isn’t harboring any ill will towards Carney.
