Tony Snow Remembered
MediaBistro ^ | July 10, 2009 | Alissa Krinsky

Posted on 07/10/2009 9:21:32 AM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia

Sunday will mark one year since the death of Tony Snow from cancer. He battled the disease, which originated in his colon before spreading, for more than three years.

Snow, a longtime commentator and journalist, anchored at Fox News Channel and later worked for a short time at CNN. In between his TV jobs, he served as White House Press Secretary for President George W. Bush.

This Sunday, TVNewser has learned, Fox News Channel will mark the anniversary of Snow's death with numerous mentions of him throughout the day, along with thoughts from Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush and from FNC colleagues such as Bill O'Reilly and Greta Van Susteren.

Just one year since he’s been gone? So much has changed since then. I would have loved to hear his perspective on BHO.

I wonder if Tony can read his pings in heaven?

One the best, most infectious commentators I have ever had the pleasure of listening to. Miss him terribly. Prayers for his children and other family.

Tony Snow was an example for us all in so many ways.

Here's to you, my good man! I hope we all can measure up.

Has it been a year already?

Wow. The world is completely changed in that time. And not for the better.

I miss him - he was always a pleasure to hear.

I miss Tony Snow. I had such a crush on him when he filled in for Rush, way back when. I was so excited to see that his looks matched his voice.

Thank you for the thread.

True, so much has happened in the last year, and I dearly wish we had Tony’s voice and humorous perspective on so many issues. My consolation comes from knowing that he is in heaven, and in whatever way still involved in faith, family and country. Tony had a huge impact on my life, and I thank him for his service to America. A gentleman in every sense of the word. Prayers are being offered for Tony and his family.

Yup, I was just meditating on his loss this past week, not realizing it’d been a year.

You were one of a kind, Tony! And you weren’t here nearly long enough. See you when we see you in heaven.

Thanks for mentioning Tony. Saw both Tony and Rush speak at the same event in Chicago 5-6 years ago. I don’t think I’ll ever forget that. It seems like Tony’s been gone longer than just one year.

Knowing God is smarter than any human - and wiser - and more of everything good - I suspect he can make a heaven that more entertaining and fun than the best “resort” or “theme park” or “all of this world” . Tony’s moved up.

Thanks for the ping, Bahbah.

[During] one of the sharpest exchanges, when he got tired of a series of my queries [he] finally snapped: "Zip it!" But what people did not know is that [later] Tony privately apologized.

LOLing through misty eyes.

I was thinking of Tony the other day. I think he would have loved Twitter for the chance to connect with and talk to everyday people.

Thanks for the ping, Bahbah. Tony was mentioned in an article linked to another thread today about Helen Thomas. Remember when Tony thanked Helen for “the Hezbollah point of view”?

“But what people did not know is that [later] Tony privately apologized.”

There was also the very public apology to David Gregory.

Hope you’re doing well Bahbah.

I’ve had that day on my calendar for some time. My Mom loved Tony; he sent her an autographed photo on her birthday (July 13) ththree years ago......

Tony was a good man.

I’m not sure what is more difficult to accept ... thousands of posts on FR regarding Michael Jackson and less than fifty on this thread for a passionate, great American like Tony Snow. Hopefully more will see this and post.

Decent people remember Tony. He is dearly missed but in a much better place. May he rest in peace.
