White House Press Secretary Jay Carney fielded a question during a press conference today on why President Obama hasn't called Attorney General Eric Holder in response to the AP phone record seizure and at one point said, "Imagine the story on Fox."

"A great deal prevents the president from doing that; it would be wholly inappropriate for the president to involve himself in a criminal investigation that, as Jessica points out, at least as reported, involves leaks of information from the administration."

"I mean, imagine the story on Fox," Carney said. Some members of the press laughed after the statement.
