Fox’s Jesse Watters Addresses Fight with HuffPost Reporter: ‘I Regret That It Happened’

wattersFox News’ Jesse Watters tonight addressed the brawl he got into with Huffington Post reporter Ryan Grim at the White House Correspondents Dinner.

To briefly recap: Grim wanted Watters to apologize for confronting and harassing colleague Amanda Terkel after she wrote something critical of Bill O’Reilly (O’Reilly got so steamed he sent out Watters to grill her). Watters refused and ended up taking Grim’s phone as he was recording the confrontation on video.

O’Reilly defended Watters at the top of the show, and he brought on Watters later on to defend himself. Watters said he tried to be friendly, but Grim was “obnoxious.”

He denied punching Grim, but did say, “Things happened, and I regret that it happened.”

Basically, Watters “yada yada”-ed the fact that he took Grim’s phone and pocketed it and refused to give it back. (Grim’s entire video is available to watch here.)
