Gregory v. Snow: “It’s Not Personal”

By Brian 

Tony Snow had a rare opportunity last night at the National Press Club to turn the tables on reporters,” FishbowlDC says.

David Gregory talked about “the legendary Gregory v. Insert White House Press Secretary Here battles.” Here’s what he said:

“I don’t see it as a brow beating or debating… I try to provoke him to get something close to the real deal…Follow-ups and pointed questions are appropriate… I’m trying to push him to what would be more candor than he was prepared to offer.

It’s not about me and Tony. It’s not personal. It’s about the fact that we are adversaries but not enemies. There is a natural tension there.”
