Jay Carney To Fox News' Ed Henry: 'Some News Outlets' 'Misrepresenting The Facts' About Susan Rice

White House spokesman and Fox News correspondent Ed Henry continued their years-long duel on Wednesday.

Henry was asking Carney about Susan Rice, who was named President Obama's new national security adviser and who got into trouble over the Benghazi controversy. BuzzFeed noticed the spiky exchange:

"You described her as one of the most qualified, experienced foreign policy experts in America," Henry said. "If that’s the case, how did she get the information on Benghazi so wrong five days after the attack?"

"And I welcome the opportunity to correct the record, especially for some news outlets who persist in misrepresenting the facts," Carney shot back. We wonder who he was talking about?

It's hardly the first time Carney has brushed back an aggressive question or two from Henry, and it will very likely not be the last time either.
