Washington Post reporter Jim VandeHei asked to have the television on Air Force One tuned to CNN instead of Fox News, but his request was initially denied.

"I was told, 'We don't watch CNN here, you can only watch Fox,'" VandeHei said.

"My question would be, is there a White House policy that all government TVs have to be tuned to Fox?" VandeHei asked White House spokesman Scott McClellan, who is soon to be replaced by former Fox anchor and self-described conservative Tony Snow.

McClellan denied there is an official policy, saying that the four televisions in his office are tuned onto all the major news channels, CNN reported.

"I've never known anyone that's raised a complaint about a request from back here to watch a different channel," McClellan said.

VandeHei replied, "I'm officially raising it, and officially complaining about it."

McClellan said he found the question "quite amusing," and left to see about making the change.

Eighteen minutes after VandeHei raised the issue, McClellan had resolved it.

The Smoking Gun Web site recently reported that whenever Vice President Dick Cheney stays in a hotel room, he insists that all TVs in his suite be tuned to Fox News.
