PBS NewsHour anchor Gwen Ifill tweeted this picture of some of the biggest names in news standing in the White House's East Room with the caption, "This was a [Wolf Blitzer] idea." From left to right: CBS News's Scott Pelley, PBS's Ifill, Fox News's Chris Wallace, ABC News's Diane Sawyer, CNN's Wolf Blitzer, and NBC News's Savannah Guthrie. The six anchors are at the White House recording separate interviews with the President to air on Monday's nightly news broadcasts.

You'll notice Pelley, Ifill, and Wallace stood beside each other, slightly slanted, with a healthy distance between each person. An appropriate distance, some might say. But Blitzer had different ideas. Stationed between Sawyer and Guthrie, he went for a friendlier pose.
