Snowing on Their Parade

President Bush should have hired Tony Snow years ago; see how he puts this reporter in his place:

"But do you think that the State of the Union is the place for Michael J. Fox and Congressman Langevin to advocate, by their presence, embryonic stem cell research," the reported asked.

"I'm not going to try to give lectures on etiquette," Snow replied.

"Members may invite whomever they wish. And the President understands that all these are important issues, and they're important to us, too," Snow said. "We want to get them right; we want to have a debate; and we want to try to move it from the level where people try to describe as heartless a President whose heart is absolutely in saving lives through stem cell research."

"Okay, I understand. I understand. You continue to say you want debates on all -- on many issues. But will you listen to the words of the opposition?" the reported shot back. "That's the question."

"Yes. And will the opposition listen to us? That's also the question," Snow replied.

Notice the sneering tone of this press corp member. Does anyone think that, when this gets written up by these guys, this exchange won`t be spun as an arrogant Bush Whitehouse out to screw those suffering from illness? Tony Snow is good, but his words can be edited-or left out entirely. We need regime change in the mainstream media.

Americas silent majority needs to act and rather then go after MSM hit them where it hurts their advertisers. If advertisers get flooded with emails and letters saying they no longer rely on MSM as news sources advertisers will start pulling their spots. If this starts happening MSM will have to act to survive.
