The Associated Press will take Helen Thomas’ old seat, while Fox News will now occupy AP’s former seat.

Thomas, who worked most recently as a columnist for Hearst Corporation, abruptly resigned her seat in early June following an uproar over comments she made about Jews in Israel. She was filmed saying Jews should “get the hell out of Palestine” and suggested they go instead to Germany, Poland and the United States. Thomas apologized and later resigned.

Thomas had covered every president since Dwight Eisenhower. She is approaching her 90th birthday.

Fox News White House Correspondent Major Garrett previously sat directly behind Thomas in the second row. Other news outlets represented in the front row are: NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, Reuters and the Associated Press.

How can they seriously consider a network with such dreche as Glen Beck, O'Reilly and Hanity as "journalists". We are talking about front seats a the White house, not at some tea party circus with clowns like Sarah Palin providing the entertainment.

Since you are a major tipish when it comes to news and you are obviously a left wing wacko who knows not a ki hu zeh about the difference between a REPORTER and a COMMENTATOR, I would like to teach it to you.

You see, FoxNews has REPORTERS - as in people who REPORT the news so you could decide. They also have the wonderful COMMENTATORS you mentioned who give their "take" on the news. You are free not to agree with them.

See, at the stations you are used to like CNN the Communist News Network, MessNBC, cBS, etc., they have the reporters giving the news and telling you what you have to think about it too. I am sure you remember Dan Rather MAKING UP THE STORY about Pres Bush's military service and then having to reisgn in disgrace? Well all the crooks at the other stations honored him instead of ignoring him.

FoxNEws REPORTS so YOU decide!!

I was going to respond, but not going to bother on your dumb comment. Fox is the only real news network out there and the only one that is fair to Israel. They are afraid to give the facts on all important issues, while the left would like to tell you what you should believe in.

Congratulations to FNC. Their NEWS people are top notch. You cannot fault their NEWS reporters for the lies and ridiculous made-up stories of SOME of their COMMENTATORS or the lying clowns on their morning show. Chris Wallace and Brit Hume are among the finest journalists walking this planet. FNC absolutely deserved a front-row seat and they got it.
