Tony Snow Asks Helen Thomas to Stop Pestering Him During a Press Conference

It is safe to say that many NewsBusters members have been waiting for years to see a White House press secretary put Helen Thomas in her place. Today, Tony Snow did.

As Snow was explaining the administration’s position on the surveillance of terrorist finances to the White House press corps Friday, Helen Thomas was being, well…Helen Thomas.

Snow stopped in the middle of answering a question and said, “Helen, will you stop heckling and let me conduct a press conference?” Helen mumbled something inaudible, and Snow said: “Well, no, I’m making an argument and you’re, you’re pestering the teacher.”
