Fox News has long been accused of shilling for Republicants and acting as a mouthpiece for the White House – claims they’ve always denied.
Their motto is “fair and balanced,” but that hasn’t fooled anyone.
How can we explain Fox News’ Tony Snow replacing Scott McClellan as the president’s spokesman? Fox can no longer deny at least one member of their team has close enough ties to the Bush administration to land a cushy job within it.
I’ll restate it succinctly – a guy from Fox News is now the mouthpiece for the president. Point made.
Snow has already out-Boltoned John Bolton by insulting his future colleagues, calling Bush “impotent,” “an embarrassment” and a “dime-store Democrat.” That last one especially… ouch!
But now Bush won’t have to worry about suffering any further such jibes from Snow. As the president’s spokesman Snow will continue Scotty’s work of speaking while saying nothing.
