As mentioned in this space last week, White House spokesman Tony Snow delivered a pretty hard shot to NBC’s David Gregory during a contentious briefing on the Iraq Study Group.
After paraphrasing the group’s report and chairmen, Gregory asked: “Can this report be seen as anything other than a rejection of this president’s handling of the war?” Snow promptly accused him of “trying to frame it in a partisan way.”
Snow told Gregory at a briefing Thursday that he had concluded he was “wrong . . . so I want to apologize and tell you I’m sorry for it.” The spokesman told Washington Post Radio he decided it was “unfair” to suggest Gregory is “deliberately doing work on behalf of Democrats.”
Gregory is taking the high road: “I appreciated his apology.”
