Fox News Channel’s Shepard Smith and Bret Baier joined other members of the media for a lunch with President Obama before his State of the Union Address on Tuesday, and what the two found waiting at their seats could be seen as a subtle jab.
“I sat next to Brian Williams, and we all had these place cards, and his said ‘Brian Williams, NBC News.’” Smith said. “And across from me was David Muir – the new guy on ABC – it said ‘David Muir, ABC News.’ And I looked at mine, and it doesn’t say anything about news. It just says ‘Fox.’ And I looked at Bret Baier’s and it said, “Bret Baier, Fox.’ And all the rest of them said ‘News.’”
The administration may not have intentionally erred in forgetting to add ‘News,’ but the absence of the word didn’t seem to faze Smith.

“I mean I don’t care, lunch was great. But I guess there’s a message received. I think Bret and I are good to go with the news part,” he added with a smirk.
