“Dissed” Dave Defensive

Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Dave Briggs did not appear to overly appreciate one follower’s Tweet yesterday. After Dave and fellow co-anchor Clayton Morris were preempted by their weekday counterparts, Twitter’s depochick asked, “Why can’t you guys handle Kennedy coverage?”* Whereas Clayton did not respond, Dave replied,” We can certainly handle it & more, just a station wide decision, heck Shep is in too. CNN did the same and I got to sleep in!”** (Dave failed to mention that CNN does not have an American Morning weekend program.)

One certainly can certainly understand Dave’s feeling dissed. However, F&F & F&FW co-anchors have regularly referred to the weekday crew as the “A” Team and weekend cast as the “B” Team. As such, one should not feel surprised nor snubbed when Bill Shine, FNC Senior VP of Programming, brings in the “A” Team to cover this special event (as he did during the pontiff’s 2008 U.S. visit and the presidential 2009 inaugural affairs).

For the reader who wonders why Alisyn Camerota, F&FW’s co-host, was on the curvy couch yesterday, cf. Carpe Diem’s “F&F’s A(ly)-Team.”***
