If you want evidence of CNNs use of the 2008 primary season to chart its resurgence in the cable TV news wars, look no further than todays announcement that the Atlanta-based network has hired former White House spokesman Tony Snow as a political contributor.
Prior to his stint in the Bush administration, which ended last September, Snow was a dominant personality for Fox News. We could tell you about Snows background, but itd be more fun for you to get it from the Fox web site. The info is not likely to be there long.
The official word from CNN/U.S. includes a comment from president Jon Klein:
In the White House, Tony brought a remarkably human touch to the discussion of public policy, which he will continue to do as part of the

Too bad he went over to CNN, I try not to watch them.
Maybe CNN is starting to get it.
Maybe this is a sign that CNN is willing to give more time to the conservative point of view.
Fox started out as the conservative news network, but seems to be morphing into the National Enquirer. If CNN really moves to the center it will be much more interesting than Fox.
Glenn Beck is a hoot!
Bringing Tony Snow to the line-up is a smart move for CNN.
The children cannot support these lefty sites and they are starting to realize this.
Now I haven't watched CNN for quite some time--years maybe-- but I've noticed that it sounds suspiciously like Fox does. Or did. Complete with bells, whistles and sound effects, as they breathlessly report on the latest Brittney or American Idull scuttlebutt. Smacks of a three ring circus. It's sad, really. Sad that, apparently, this is what the public wants to be fed. I think I'll reset my preset buttons again.
Let’s face it. Tony told us all here on FR that he needed some money. He will be as natural during the general election. Praying his health holds up.
I thought the same thing right off the bat but the more I think about it Tony being in the enemy camp might just counter Jack Offerty and some of the other liberal pukes
Tony has two good eyes, which in the Valley of the Blind is even better...
Isn't that the truth!
More and more I am switching to MSNBC - especially in the morning.
Tony the Token? God Bless him and may he change things over there but I won’t hold my breath.
As I'm reading the article I'm thinking the same thing. After his bout with cancer I hope he raked CNN over the coals for pay. Too bad FOX didn't think him worth it. I think folks would have tuned in to FOX just to watch Tony. He's certainly a more well-known personality than before he joined the White House.
I will tune to CNN to watch Tony. Especially if he slaps around the liberal flamers over there.
We watch Glenn Beck’s show every evening on CNN’s Headline News Channel. I’m amazed CNN has him in the lineup and love the show.
Tony Snow will be in good company with Beck. Maybe, just maybe, the dinosaur media is getting a tiny clue.
gosh- the iq of cnn just went up by a substantial amount.
The market is acruel mistress- now if jack cafferty and schneider were replaced by normal people i might actually watch them.
Right On.Again there really isn't much difference between these so-called conservatives & the idiot libs. They ALL are about MONEY & anyway to get it. Sad Sad Sad.
