I heard Fox News guy Tony Snow might be getting the job. (To steal a joke from Jon Stewart) The white house paying fox news to present their spin of the news? That'll be so difficult and different from Snow's current job.

If Snow gets the job, shouldn't that seal the deal that Fox News is the administration's mouthpiece?

i thought the deal was sealed when they called Florida for Bush in 2000 ... the whole "fair and balanced" thingy was just hipster irony, right?

Ok, to us liberals, of course the deal was sealed back in 2000. But, will anyone be able to seriously contend that Fox News isn't in with the Bush administration if Snow gets this job?

McClellan talents lie elsewhere.

Sounds like somebody's been taken in by Michael Moore's "Farenheit 911".

From his statement that evolutionary theory is a "hypothesis" to his defense of Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, Media Matters for America has documented numerous false and misleading claims advanced by Snow as a Fox News commentator:

* Snow falsely asserted that former ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV said his wife, Valerie Plame, "wasn't covert for six years" before she was exposed as a CIA operative by syndicated columnist Robert Novak.

* Snow put forward numerous falsehoods to argue that "[e]volutionary theory, like ID [intelligent design], isn't verifiable or testable. It's pure hypothesis."

* Snow claimed that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the "most liberal justice in American history," despite evidence to the contrary.

* Snow peddled the baseless Republican National Committee talking point that 2004 presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) had blamed U.S. troops for the explosives looted from the Al Qaqaa military installation following the invasion of Iraq. Snow said, "[T]he Kerry campaign is not criticizing the president here. They're criticizing our troops."

* Following President Bush's lead, Snow distorted Kerry's stated desire to reduce terrorism to a "horrible nuisance." Snow claimed Kerry had "called terrorists a nuisance."

* Snow backed Swift Boat Veterans for Truth's attacks on Kerry, falsely claiming, "[T]here has been no documentary contradiction of the Swift Boat stuff."

* Snow falsely defended Bush from probing questions regarding his National Guard service.
