    I remember reading somewhere, that the only President in recent history that wrote his own speeches was JFK. Not sure if that is true, but it could be, since he was an excellent writer.

    I think some of you are missing my point. The point is, we shouldn't have a conflict of interest of people who are in charge of bringing us the news, writing for a politician...


    regardless of politician.

    I think people are missing the point intentionally.

    The latter, and it's true of any administration.

    Your thoughts.
    Pat Buchanan wrote virtually all of Richard Nixon's speeches. I am cool with that too.

    What about Tony Snow of FOX News joining the Bush administration as it's spokesman to the media? What's the big deal there? Isn't a big deal at all. Neither is Zuckerman helping to write a speech for Obama. Just another non-story.

    Where's the beef?

    didn't he quit fox news to do it? did he go back? I think this is on the same caliber. but yeah if he went back, I wouldn't really take his word as uhm "unbiased"....

The MSNBC team is most likely unofficially of course, part OF the White House PR team, which explains their low ratings across the board. I'm sure we'll find out in the coming years just how much.

    That said, it may be that Fox was part of the Bush administration as well --- though I'm not aware of any direct evidence of that and given the hate for Bush and FN -- it probably would have been outed by now.

    This is blatant though. Are we sure Olbermann isn't really giving Obama hints on who to attack next?


    Snow was a broadcaster and newspaper columnist. After years of regular guest-hosting for The Rush Limbaugh Show and providing news commentary for National Public Radio, he launched his own talk radio program, The Tony Snow Show, which went on to become nationally syndicated. He was also a regular personality on Fox News Channel since 1996, hosting Fox News Sunday and Weekend Live, and often substituting as host of The O'Reilly Factor. <snip>

    Tony Snow - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Not sure if ol' Tony did much speech writing, if any, but who can doubt that FOXNews and President Bush weren't butt-buddies?

    The media is in bed with the politicians of choice. Is there really any doubt?

    Sorry... looks like I came in too late before reading your post Dana. Just goes to show great minds think alike.
