Topic: The Daily Les
White House press secretary Tony Snow appears to be messing a bit with our Les Kinsolving.
KINSOLVING: What is Condoleezza Rice's greatest achievement to date as secretary of state?
SNOW: OK, Lester, and what is your greatest as a broadcaster?
KINSOLVING: Since Hezbollah is a terrorist organization that has killed hundreds of Americans, why is it that the president wants Israel to cut short its war to destroy its infrastructure, since that is what the president pledged to do to all international terrorist organizations after September the 11th?
SNOW: Counselor, the question is argumentative, presumptuous and makes assumptions not in evidence.
Kinsolving then added in his WND article: "WND told Snow the query was a 'network question,' meaning it had come from WorldNetDaily headquarters." Um, so? Is there some level of question from Kinsolving that Snow must answer seriously no matter what? Do other media outlets have this same level of access?
