Fox & Friends Producer Behind Anti-Obama Video Reportedly Has His CNN Offer ‘Revoked’ (UPDATE)
Yesterday, Fox & Friends aired a lengthy video package attacking the first term of the Obama Presidency. Mediaite’s Noah Rothman wrote a column accusing the morning show of crossing the line with the video into becoming full on pro-Romney advocacy. That was only the beginning, and the snowball turned into a full on avalanche of people attacking the show and its network. Fox News released a statement accusing F&F associate producer Chris White of making the whole thing without being ” authorized by the senior executive level of the network.” It was reported that White was leaving Fox News anyway for a new job at CNN. However, it now appears that that new offer has been revoked.
This latest update comes from The New York Times‘ reporter Jeremy W. Peters who posted this tweet shortly ago:
Fox News producer who was set to go to CNN before he made that anti-Obama vid has his offer revoked. Whether he stays at Fox unclear

If the tweet is true it could signal that White’s career may be taking a hit due to the fallout over the video.
UPDATE: Peters’ article is up over at the New York Times with a confirmation from a CNN spokeswoman.
