"Tony Snow Returns Home To Fox News, Will Host O’Reilly Factor Tonight"
UPDATE: A Fox source disputes our report and says Bill O’Reilly will be hosting. Freepers, however, think Tony Snow is.
UPDATE II: Tony Snow did not host The O’Reilly Factor. Instead, he appeared as a guest.
ThinkProgress has been told Tony Snow will be guest hosting The O’Reilly Factor on Fox News tonight.
Prior to serving as White House Press Secretary, Snow was a political analyst for Fox News Channel, which he joined in 1996. For seven years, he served as the host of “FOX News Sunday.” He then hosted “The Tony Snow Show” on FOX News Radio, and “Weekend Live with Tony Snow” on the Fox News Channel.
Tony Snow last appeared on The O’Reilly Factor as a guest in October. O’Reilly asked whether Snow would consider returning to Fox, and Snow suggested that could be a possibility. O’Reilly warned Snow:
But you can’t go over to CNN. I mean, that’s the devil over there. You can’t. You know. You’re a religious guy. You can’t go into the pagan throne over there.
At the time, O’Reilly warned Snow that if he left Fox to become his competitor, “it’s going to get bloody.”
