Bill O'Reilly was certainly pleased with the announcement that Fox News has won a coveted seat position in the White House briefing room.
On Monday's "O'Reilly Factor," the host told guests James Rosen of FNC and Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times that he "might be able to sneak down in there" and "sit in the front row."
O'Reilly continued with a devilish grin on his face, "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" (video follows with partial transcript and commentary):
BILL O'REILLY: Okay, but, you know, I might be able to sneak down in there, Rosen, you know, I'll tie [Major] Garrett up. Sure, I'm a, 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. I mean it...whoa!...If I'm right in front, right in front, that's going to be quite something.
Honestly, could you imagine what White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs would do if any of those huge Fox personalities showed up in the front row one day?
It would be his worst nightmare.
I can't wait.
