News outlets are mourning former White House Press Secretary and Fox News anchor Tony Snow’s passing. On Monday’s Television Critic’s Association Fox News panel, Fox Political Analyst Karl Rove said a few words to reporters about his friend. “It was an honor to serve with him and to be his friend. When I heard the news it was devastating. I knew it was coming. None of the news we got was good. He was a great guy and made you feel good when he came into the room…He set a wonderful tone,” and later added “He knew it was gonna happen but he had such a strong faith. He faced it with enormous courage.”

When asked if he was aware of online articles that had touched upon Snow’s death with a cruel tone, he said, “I haven’t seen the blogs, but I have no intention of doing so.”
