Fox’ Snow Site’s Muhammad Cartoons Still Live

tony_snow_fox_cartoons.jpg

Newly-crowned White House press secretary Tony Snow‘s Fox Web site is apparently still active — at least parts of it. Snow’s site had posted versions of the 12 cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad that ignited a firestorm when they appeared in a Danish newspaper in September. They’re still up there, with a disclaimer that they are “fake.” It’s a disclaimer that probably appeased Fox execs at the time. Trouble is, they don’t look fake.

In any event, it begs the question(s): Why is any part of the site still up? And is Snow’s elevated profile and documented history as a pundit going to smack the White House in the face every time a political controversy arises?
