Mod note: The headline originally read: Fox News to move to Thomas' front-row briefing room seat
The White House Correspondents Association voted unanimously Sunday afternoon to move Fox News to the front row of the White House briefing room.
The seating change was prompted by the resignation of veteran UPI reporter Helen Thomas.
According to Ed Henry, the senior White House correspondent for CNN and member of the WHCA board, the Associated Press will move to the front-row middle seat formerly occupied by Thomas.
Fox News will replace the AP in its former seat, also in the front row, and NPR, which lobbied for Thomas' seat along with Fox and Bloomberg News, will take Fox's former seat in the second row.
The 2010-2011 WHCA board includes representatives from USA Today, Reuters, C-SPAN, the New York Times, Politico, Time Magazine, NPR and the DC Examiner.
Thomas, a longtime critic of Israeli foreign policy, had resigned in late May after a video clip in which she said that Israelis should "get the hell out of Palestine" and "go home" -- to Europe, the United States and other places -- surfaced on the internet.
Liberal groups had lobbied for NPR's placement in the front row over Fox, which one petition called a "right-wing propaganda outlet."
Thee more LibTurd heads that explode the better,

“Eeeeuuwww... no one else wants to sit where she sat, where her butt was....eeeuuuwwww....”
LOL! What’s the problem? HT always wore triple strength Depends!
Associated Press will move to the front-row middle seat formerly occupied by Thomas.
Fox News will replace the AP in its former seat, also in the front row...
Whoever sits in it will draw the ire of the liberal media. Can’t wait. This should be entertaining.
Big deal. They won’t be able to ask anything they should be asking.
Yeah I do
yep - just a distraction
Boy, this will put a knot in Helen’s Depends when she hears about this one.
NPR taking a back seat to FOX. Hah!
Now all we need is Sarah Palin to fill in for Major Garrett the next time he goes on vacation. Or Brit Hume. Or Sean Hannity. Or Charles Krauthammer. Or...
Umm.. That was Megan Fox who was moved to the front row.
This surprises me.
I think the nudge by the voters here...is to allow Fox front-row access to hit on Gibby...which is far more entertaining.
A “Cordoba” seat...
Wendell Goler (sp?) and Major Garrett will do a terrific job. Go to it, guys! And congrats!
