Ed Henry On Move From CNN To Fox: “I Like To Play For A First Place Team’

Fox News’ new White House Correspondent Ed Henry spoke with Don Imus for the first time and wasn’t shy about admitting just how happy he is to be working at Fox and how amusing he finds some of the criticism. Imus teed up Henry’s response by asking “when did you come over from the dark side, CNN” and Henry didn’t disappoint by making it clear what team he is on now.

Henry stated:

“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.”

Henry also laughed off critics who think that just because he’s at Fox, he now all of sudden has a contentious relationship with White House Press Secretary Jay Carney and has an agenda. He says that he asked tough questions of both Democrats and Republicans in the past, and now will continue to do so. And in news that wasn’t about Henry, he provided his take on the debt deal, suggesting “there really are no winners in this,” since “when Washington is this dysfunctional it’s obviously not good for either side.”
