Garrett: Question Snub “Retribution” For FOX Network Declining to Carry Newser

obama_5-1.jpgFox News White House correspondent Major Garrett appeared this morning on “Brian and the Judge,” and described why he didn’t get a question during Wednesday’s prime time news conference.

“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.”

Garrett thinks more networks may opt out of coverage soon. “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.”
