AP and L.A. Times Smear Tony Snow Hours After His death

Posted by iusbvision on July 16, 2008

 

Michelle Malkin, Bill O’Reilly and Patterico have done great work at exposing this story and deserve everyones thanks for doing the right thing not only for Tony Snow and his family, but for simple journalistic integrity.

Any first year journalism student knows that you NEVER attack someone in an obituary. An obituary is never the place for editorial comments on politics or policy. The AP did just that:

With a quick-from-the-lip repartee, broadcaster’s good looks and a relentlessly bright outlook – if not always a command of the facts – he became a popular figure around the country to the delight of his White House bosses.

Critics suggested that Snow was turning the traditionally informational daily briefing into a personality-driven media event short on facts and long on confrontation.

Thank you Michelle.

 

Malkin and Patterico have been covering the L.A. Times attacks on Snow. Here are some of the comments that the L.A. Times CHOSE to publish. All comments posted at the L.A. Times MUST be approved by the editors before they appear and it says just that on the web site.

“CANCER WAS TOO GOOD FOR HIM. HOPE IT WAS PAINFUL. NOW FOR THE REST OF THIS SCUMMY ADMINISTRATION. COME ON CANCER, DO YOUR GOOD WORK………………..”

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the first day of a Tony Snow-free world! Yay!!!!”

“I only wish his suffering were more prolonged.”

“I hope he suffered at the end. Just a terrible person.”

Here are the links with all the revolting details.
