Snow Job

Does David Gergen actually think that Tony Snow is going to 'go in and say, gentlemen, this isn't good. The press has a legitimate need here. We have got to give it to them'?  I'd note in passing that Nicole Wallace is not a gentleman.  I'd note in more than passing that there is no reason to assume that Snow is going to 'go in' there and do this, given his background.  I'm not questioning his integrity, but he's a man loyal to a cause, and his cause in this instance it seems to me will be to make the press operation more efficient and less transparent in its mangling of the truth.  It's the difference between Imperialism and Hegemony.
