After Helen Thomas’s retirement/historically ignorant meltdown, the White House Correspondent’s Association has figured it out. The Associated Press will inherit Thomas’s chair in the White House briefing – front and center – and Fox News will move into the front row.
You won’t see the changes, since the camera is usually trained on the podium and whoever is speaking from there. And of course, since the communication in the White House briefing room is pretty staged and rehearsed, there’s rarely ever any actual news made there. The reporters digging up stories around town will continue to do the heavy lifting.
But hey… how ’bout that new seating chart, huh?
