FOX News is reportedly a “Major” contender in the battle for the front-row seat once occupied by Helen Thomas, the doyenne of the White House Press Corps.
The 89-year-old Thomas retired from Hearst Newspapers after making controversial comments about Israel. This marks the end of a storied career but the beginning of a battle to get the space with the most face-time with the White House Press Secretary. It’s prime real estate where location truly matters.
Major Garrett, the chief White House Correspondent for Fox News, is just one of the many who have a shot at getting their name on the vacant chair in the White House briefing room.
