Fox News was able to move up to the front row of the White House briefing room at least in part based on its claims that its news division is separate from its opinionated hosts. But now Bill O'Reilly is promising to make his way down to Washington and sit in the front row — and he says Glenn Beck may not be far behind.
"I might be able to sneak down in there, and tie [Fox News White House Correspondent Major] Garrett up," O'Reilly said. "I'm a Fox News-credentialed guy and I can sit in the front row. And believe me when I tell you that I will be there, sometime down the line. And Glenn Beck might be there. Hannity might be there.
"If I'm right in front, right in front, then it's gonna be quite something," he added.
O'Reilly made the comment during a segment about how the "far left is going nuts" over the White House Correspondent Association's decision to move Fox News to the front row.
