Garrett: Fox Has a Standing Request With White House on Interviews
Fox News White House correspondent Major Garrett gave his side of story about the White House not allowing Fox to participate in a pool interview with pay czar Kenneth Feinberg last week.
Garrett told a Washington radio show today that he's had a "standing request" to sit down with any newsmakers when the other networks are doing so for Fox News. Part of the request is to provide interviews for Fox Business, which does not have the rating's power to compete with the bigger networks.
Garrett said there was about "an hour-long effort to exclude us," but that was "resolved."
