The Vice President of the United States, the king of talk radio, White House correspondents and Fox News regulars all gathered this morning on Fox News Sunday to honor the life of and work of the show’s founding host, Tony Snow.
Chris Wallace (who took over hosting FN Sunday in 2003 when Snow decided he wanted to be, as Wallace explains, “the next Rush Limbaugh,”) opened the broadcast with an image from the Newseum, where Tony Snow is being remembered on a giant screen in the atrium. He then aired an interview with Vice President Cheney, taped late yesterday at the VP’s residence. Cheney praised Snow’s service to the president, he lauded his commitment to the fight against cancer and talked about what the future might have held. “I think he could have been a great candidate if he’d wanted to do that. I think Tony had an unlimited future ahead of him,” Cheney said.
Limbaugh phoned in and, while reflecting on what Snow meant to the conservative movement, took the time to criticize AP reporter Douglas Daniel for what he wrote about Snow:
With a quick-from-the-lip repartee, broadcaster’s good looks and a relentlessly bright outlook — if not always a command of the facts — he became a popular figure around the country to the delight of his White House bosses.
“Now, why in the world say something like that on his occasion when it isn’t the case in the first place?,” Limbaugh said. “I think it’s because he took a new tack as a press secretary.”
Fox News has announced changes to its programming tonight and tomorrow. At 8pmET, Bill O’Reilly anchors a live special edition of The O’Reilly Factor. This is followed by live special editions of On The Record with Greta Van Susteren at 9pmET and Geraldo At Large at 10pmET.
The three programs repeat in order from 11pmET-1amET. Red Eye airs at 2amET.
On FOX News Sunday tomorrow morning, Brit Hume anchors (Chris Wallace is on vacation). Special guests will include Vice President Dick Cheney and Rush Limbaugh, and a panel is still being assembled to discuss the life of Tony Snow.
> Update: FNC has announced a new lineup for FOX News Sunday. Chris Wallace returns to anchor (Tony Snow was the previous anchor of FNS). Cheney and Limbaugh lead off, and a panel discussion of White House Press Corps. members follow. FNC’s Bret Baier, ABC’s Martha Raddatz and Politico’s Mike Allen will guest.
