Reporting from the middle of a blizzard with record wind speed and
snowfall is really hard. But President Obama and Congress continue to

MSNBC and Fox News have no choice but to hike outside and talk about
the news while standing in front of the White House. They've met the challenge intrepidly, but not altogether successfully. Via Mediaite
, here are some of the tougher moments.
"This is what we do on live television, folks, in
a blizzard," one of them says through screaming winds and a torrent of
snow that certainly looks piercing.

or even, say, changing out of one's pajamas, is much easier.
