Snow on the Offensive: Tony Snow, on his first week on the job, lets the mainstream media know they're not sufficiently obedient to the White House spin. Essentially, his complaint appears to be that not every media outlet is Fox News.

Given that the media (Steven Colbert excepted) have handled this president with maximum obsequiousness, it's a bold strategy; given how easily intimidated the New York Times and CBS News have shown themselves to be over the past six years, maybe it's a smart one.

ADD: CBS grows something suspiciously resembling a spine: “Again, the White House is clearly manipulating what I broadcast to fit their agenda. And they are wrong to do that.” (Hat tip: HuffPo.)
