Snow Says “Grab Your Surfboard”

Tony Snow‘s view of the press, as told to the Examiner’s Bill Sammon:

“My view of the press right now is that we’re living in the Wild West, and it’s pretty exciting,” he said. “Because the old sheriff used to be ABC, NBC, CBS. Now you’ve got networks, you’ve got cable, you’ve got talk radio, you’ve got the blogosphere.

“The blogosphere has never quite gotten its due, and sooner or later it will,” he said. “But you’ve got pouring information in from everywhere. So you grab your surfboard and get on top of the wave rather than underneath it.”
