Fox Gets Front-Row Seat in White House Press Room

Sunday, 01 Aug 2010 06:33 PM

Fox News Channel has been granted a much-coveted front-row seat in the White House briefing room.

The White House Correspondents Association also announced Sunday that The Associated Press' reporter has been moved to the front-row center seat.

That seat was long held by United Press International and Hearst News Service writer Helen Thomas. The 89-year-old Thomas abruptly resigned in June amid controversy over videotaped remarks she made calling on Israelis to get "out of Palestine."

Fox's correspondent will be moved to the front-row seat that was held by the AP. National Public Radio's correspondent will be moved to Fox's old second-row seat.

Fox's upgrade is an acknowledgment of its "length of service and commitment," the association's board said.
