Fox News’ Ed Henry addressed his sudden exit from a Friday, Oct. 11, 2013, White House press briefing in a Monday interview, reports The Huffington Post.
“A visibly angry Henry walked out of the briefing after press secretary Jay Carney ignored his repeated questions,” the piece reports. “Speaking to colleague Brian Kilmeade on Monday, Henry said that, though he looked annoyed, he had to duck out to appear on television.” Henry added that he was not upset.
