Tony Snow on moving from Fox News anchor to Press Sec’y for the Bush administration

I’ve been posting less frequently lately because of computer problems, but I couldn’t resist dashing off a quick hit on former White House Press Secretary (and former Fox News anchor) Tony Snow’s conversation on last night’s Colbert Report. I probably would have laughed at — but not bothered to blog about — Stephen Colbert’s blatant mockery of the farce of Snow’s “legitimate journalism” career, if the conversation had stopped here:

Colbert: Are you a journalist?

Snow: Well, I used to be. I don’t think I am anymore.

Colbert: When were you a journalist? Cause I…

Snow: I was in journalism for about 27 years.

Colbert: What did you do?

Snow: I was a newspaper writer for the better part of twenty years, I was a TV host on Fox News Sunday

Colbert: That’s what I thought. You were a legitimate journalist going out there, walking the beat. At what point did you say to yourself, this is worthless?

Love me some Colbert sass. But the point that prompted me to write this morning came a moment or two later, when Snow’s commnt about how natural it was to move from Fox News anchor directly into a position as the prime mouthpiece of George W. Bush spoke volumes about the ideology underlying Fox’s self-vaunted “Fair and Balanced” PR slogan:

Snow: It turned out to be the most natural job transition I ever had. I loved it. I love working with the press. I agree with the President. So, it was terrific. I liked dealing with the policy stuff. I had a seat at the table when we were talking policy a the White House.

Seriously, I don’t need to unpack that for y’all, do I?
