There's a New Sheriff in Town

Look out MSM heel-biters; Tony Snow is mad as hell and he’s not taking it anymore.

An email fired off to reporters yesterday by Snow’s new and improved White House press office makes one thing clear: The White House has gone on the offensive.

The factually challenged partisan nonsense coming from the likes of The New York Times, USA Today and CBS News will no longer be tolerated. No more free rides.

Make no mistake about it, these guys are going to have their hands full with the formidable Mr. Snow.

Take this opening shot fired across that liberal Grey Lady’s wooden bow: “The New York Times continues to ignore America’s economic progress.”

As for Dan Rather’s former ramshackle home, “CBS News misleadingly reports that only 8 million seniors have signed up for Medicare prescription drug coverage, but 37 million seniors have coverage.

As for that colorful USA Today: “[It] claims ‘poor, often minority’ Medicare beneficiaries are not enrolling in Medicare drug coverage. But by April, more than 70 percent of eligible African Americans, more than 70 percent of eligible Hispanics, and more than 75 percent of eligible Asian Americans are enrolled or have retiree drug coverage.”

Snow is setting the record straight. Finally.

My hat goes off to you Tony. Take no prisoners.

You’re off to a heckuva start...
