The White House Correspondents Association has voted unanimously today to bump the Fox News White House reporter to the front row in the briefing room. The Associated Press gets Helen Thomas’ former front row center seat, vacating the seat Fox will occupy. NPR gets rights to Fox’s previous second row seat.
This is a much deserved perk for Fox’s Major Garrett who doesn’t shy away from the tough questions.
The 2010-2011 WHCA [White House Correspondents Association] board includes representatives from USA Today, Reuters, C-SPAN, the New York Times, Politico, Time Magazine, NPR and the DC Examiner.
