Fox News calling out Gateway Pundit.

Fox News Radio correspondent confronts Gateway Pundit reporter in White House briefing room
By Hadas Gold
The seat of former White House correspondent Helen Thomas (front row center) is seen in the James Brady Press Briefing Room in the West Wing of the White House in Washington, July 31, 2010.

A Fox News Radio correspondent confronted in the White House briefing room the White House reporter for a website that traffics in conspiracy theories, witnesses said on Friday.

As reporters were getting settled ahead of Friday’s briefing, the Fox correspondent Jon Decker pointed out that a reporter from Gateway Pundit, Lucian Wintrich, was in the room and that they “hate blacks, Jews, Hispanics,” according to BuzzFeed White House correspondent Adrian Carrasquillo, who tweeted about the incident.

Decker also sent an email to the entire White House reporter email listserv, noting that the White House "has admitted Gateway Pundit into today's White House Press Briefing."

While some in the White House briefing room say the White House should be open to any and all outlets, others have expressed concern with certain outlets being legitimized via their White House credentials.

So, only the corporate media should get a seat in the White House?

Seems Fox’s Jon Decker didn't know anything about Wintrich before his freak out at the WH.
Call the HR dept and have this guy drug tested.
