Fox gets front-row seat in White House press room
WASHINGTON (AP) - August 1, 2010 -- 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.
