Greta: Thank you, Forbes, for 'Most Powerful' honor

By Greta Van Susteren

Let's all go "Off the Record" for a minute. I woke up this morning to a surprise. Because of the great platform and opportunity I have had here at the Fox News Channel for 13-and-a half years, interviewing leaders and traveling the world, reporting from places like Iraq, Afghanistan, North Korea, Cambodia and many other nations, Forbes named me, for the fifth year in the row, as one of the 100 Most Powerful Women in the World and the only news anchor to make that list. I even moved up one spot from last year from 100 to 99.


So how powerful am I? Check this out.


VAN SUSTEREN: Hey Audrey I just discovered. You are sleeping on the couch. Audrey? Audrey? You know the rules about sleeping on the furniture. Audrey. Audrey? Ok, you win again. Oh, hi, Mike. No, that's Bill.


That was Audrey and Bill. Obviously, neither is impressed. They know same old Greta.

But on a serious note, to quote Spider-Man - and before him, Voltaire - "With great power comes great responsibility, and I do hope I don't let you down."

And a big thank you to Forbes Magazine. It is an honor to be again included in this group of incredible - and yes, powerful - women.

That's my "Off the Record" comment tonight.
