White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs reacted to journalists assuming their brand new seats today, as determined by the White House Correspondents’ Association on Sunday. Big changes included AP moving front-and-center and Fox News getting a front row seat, while TWT and U.S. News & World Report were both moved back. Not surprisingly, TWT was none too pleased about the move.

C-SPAN cameras captured it all, including MSNBC’s White House correspondent Savannah Guthrie caught e-mailing.

GIBBS: Wow, look at this, Sunday best. Everyone in their new seats. Church is full today, good to see.

And later at 28:05…

GIBBS: Any interesting e-mails, Ms. Guthrie?
GUTHRIE: Oh, sorry. [LAUGHTER] Gosh, that was embarrassing. On taxes…
GIBBS: I wasn’t asking you to read them [LAUGHTER]. [INAUDIBLE] Bill, stop e-mailing Savannah. [LAUGHTER]
