Tony Snow Regrets Criticism of President Bush

Reported by Janie - April 26, 2006

Tonight on "Special Report with Brit Hume", host Hume held an exclusive interview with new White House Press Secretary and former Fox employee, Tony Snow, where Snow revealed he regretted previous criticism of George Bush.

During the interview Hume asked Snow, "You said, among a number of things critical of this President, for example on September 30th of last year, 'No president has looked this impotent this long when it comes to defending presidential powers and prerogatives.' How do you plan to deal, when asked with your past criticisms of this president?"

To which Snow responded, "Well, pretty simple answer, which is there are probably a lot of people in the press room who from time-to-time say wooo, wish I hadn't written or said that." (You can view the video here)

Comment: Well, there it is folks. It took less than 24 hours from getting his new position to be right on message, and issuing his semi-apology. Shucks, and Snow claimed he wasn't going to drink the Kool Aid!

Will this be how we get our news from the White House from now on? Is Fox-friendly Press Secretary Tony Snow going to run to Fox with White House "exclusives"? Will Snow attempt to boost Fox's ratings? When will Fox finally just become State-sponsored news?

At least we can call what's coming out of the White House now what it actually is: A "Snow job".
