Hands Free Snowjob

What's this? Tony Snow now speaks through a headset into the headphones of the captive press aboard Air Force One? They aren't allowed to tape what he says? Surely that's a joke...right? The White House has demeaned the position of the press corps to a "Press Gaggle" already, this is just another step in minimizing their impact. The insults and lies never end. Is it a gaggle or a briefing? Nobody's sure anymore. Either way, not much truth is coming out of the White House via the Fux Gnus entertainer, Snow.

White House press spokesman Tony Snow laughs as he wears a new headset to speak to the press aboard Air Force One between Washington and Chicago, July 6, 2006. For the first time Thursday a White House Press secretary has conducted his 'gaggle' with the press aboard Air Force One with the aid of a microphone headset instead of huddling with the press in the press cabin aisleway.
