Eugene Robinson interjects some stellar critical analysis of Ed Henry (CNN White House correspondent).
"Dude you just got owned. He just made you his ... companion."
Mr Henry, intrepid reporter (in his mind, apparently), had a different take on the events:
The pressure was on now because the president had called on me. Someone handed me a microphone, millions were watching, and it's scary to think about changing topic in a split second because you might get flustered and screw up.
But it's fun to gamble and like any good quarterback (though I was never athletic enough to actually play the position), I decided to call an audible. [...]
So I waited patiently and then decided to pounce with a sharp follow-up. From just a few feet away, I could see in his body language that the normally calm and cool president was perturbed.
