Tony Snow, the journalist who served as the third White House Press Secretary in 2006-2007, died early this morning. The 53-year-old had been battling colon cancer. Snow had been a newspaper columnist, a speechwriter for the first President Bush and an anchor Fox News Sunday, and in spite of criticizing George W. Bush in a column, he was asked to replace press secretary Scott McClellan. President and Mrs. Bush issued a statement, "It was a joy to watch Tony at the podium each day. He brought wit, grace, and a great love of country to his work. His colleagues will cherish memories of his energetic personality and relentless good humor," and noted "his brave struggle against cancer."
