Original messageFox moves to front row


The vote is in, and Fox News will be the one moving to the front the front row, the White House Correspondents Association announced:

The board of the White House Correspondents Association has agreed, by consensus, to move the Associated Press to the front row, center seat in the James S. Brady Briefing Room.

The board further agreed to move Fox News to the front row seat previously occupied by AP, and relocate NPR into the second row seat previously held by Fox, next to Bloomberg News.

It was a very difficult decision. The board received requests from Bloomberg and NPR in addition to Fox for relocation to the front row and felt all three made compelling cases. But the board ultimately was persuaded by Fox's length of service and commitment to the White House television pool.

The board also made a series of adjustments to the larger seating chart, including the addition of a new seat seat for the foreign press pool.

These deliberations mark the third time in four years the board has tackled this issue, and we urge members to view seating room changes as an ongoing process that will be revisited again as our industry evolves.

Well. . . Major Garrett has earned his stripes ...he's got a solid resume starting from CNN (that's gotta be something to the DU... lol) and US News World Report. . .I could go on.

And he's easier on the eyes than Helen Thomas, that's fer sure.
