A proposal for the new White House Press Secretary
Advertisements [?]
In light of the rumor that Fox News anchor Tony Snow may have been offered the job of White House Press secretary, I have a modest proposal.

Instead of having one official White House press secretary and two or three dozen cable news personalities whose job is to seek out and report the truth, why don't we have two or three dozen official White House press secretaries and one cable news personality whose job is to seek out and report the truth?

So Tony Snow, Chris Matthews, Joe Scarborough, Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Shepard Smith, Wolf Blitzer, et al, could become the people whose job it is to "catapult the propaganda" and feed the Bush administration's spin to the public, while Keith Olbermann could remain as the cable news personality tasked with uncovering the truth.

Or would that be exactly the same as the system we already have in place?
