NEWSBUSTERS has a massive Tony Snow roundup. Meanwhile James Taranto looks at some reports of previous Bush criticisms from Snow and comments: “Snow’s appointment suggests that President Bush is not afraid of constructive criticism.”

I tend to think of stories like this as mostly insider stuff. But I remember reading in Liberty magazine, back when Clinton appointed Mike McCurry as Press Secretary, that it was going to turn around Clinton’s fortunes with the press. And it kind of did. So who knows?
