WH Tries to Ban Fox News from Press Pool Interviews with Pay Czar

Fox News is an official member of the press pool. They help pay the costs. When the White House tried to ban them from a pool interview with pay czar Kenneth Feinberg, the rest of the members refused to do the interview and the White House was forced to back down.

From Special Report with Bret Baier:
Baier: "There was an announcement by the Administration that they were putting out the pay Czar Kenneth Feinberg as we showed you earlier, for the White House pool, they sent out a message for the White House pool that Feinberg would be doing a round robin interviews with the 5 network pool that covers the White House...Foxnews has been a member since 1997, when they put out that message they specified that all members of the pool were welcome except Foxnews"
