    This afternoon’s Happening Now “Fox News Watch” panel took on Michael Hastings‘ report that the White House Press Corps engages in “juvenile and amateurish” behavior when around the president, impeding their ability to ask tough questions.

    Daily Beast columnist Kirsten Powers said despite her repeated criticism of the media’s fawning over the president, even Hastings report “surprises” her. “I think we need to hire grown-ups to cover the president,” she said. “This is not acceptable behavior and the fact that you have somebody talking about it, I mean, I think sort of being critical, but he is telling us that these people are incapable of covering the president.”

    She went on: “I can’t imagine [Fox News reporter] Brit Hume saying something like this about any president that he has covered. It is beyond the pale.”
