Major Garrett: ‘Fox deserves the seat. Fox is entitled to the seat. And I believe justice will be done’
He told Fox & Friends co-anchor Brian Kilmeade on Kilmeade’s radio show: “It’s rare when you’ve never anchored a second on the Fox network that they put you in the chair on Fox News Sunday. Obviously someone drank some bad water.”
Kilmeade also asked Garrett whether he’s going to get Helen Thomas‘ front row briefing room seat.
Helen Thomas’ seat is vacant. It’s a decision that will be made by the elected leadership of the the White House correspondents association. That election is going on now, the ballots will soon be counted. The board will be newly constituted and the board will take a vote. And I believe by every measure, by every standard of precedent, history, time in job, dedication to the beat, paying all the things that we do as a member of the pool that covers the White House and the president, all presidents, Fox deserves the seat, Fox is entitled to the seat. And I believe justice will be done and Fox will get the seat.
