Network Doesn’t Play, Major Garrett Pays

Fox News White House correspondent Major Garrett responded to his snub at Wednesday’s prime time news conference today on “Brian and the Judge.”

“That was retribution for the FOX network, broadcast network, running with its regular scheduled programming instead of taking the White House press conference,” he said. “I was warned that it might be considered as part of the overall consideration as to whether or not I’d be called on.”

The other networks are going to look at the declined public interest, the decline of news value of these events and say, ‘Wait a minute are we becoming a news organization or are we just becoming a megaphone for the White House?’” said Garrett. “I wouldn’t be surprised if some of the other networks peel off following FOX’s lead.”
