Howard Kurtz on Media Critics

Howard Kurtz of the Washington Post and CNN writes today on media critics. I thought this might be an excellent opportunity for some introspection on the torrent of criticism buffeting the MSM today.

Nah, his examples of media critics were Tony Blair, OJ Simpson and Paris Hilton. The article is an introspection-free zone. Too bad; Kurtz has the bully pulpit, but apparently not the chops to take this topic head-on - without the snark.

This might be the most shallow, self-serving, piece of fake journalism I have ever read.

I ran across it in my travels too, Ron. I opted not to post it, because I considered it infotainment.

It belongs in the lead of Fox News.

Par for the course with these hacks. I had a clip somewhere...I think it's on Think Progress actually, where Michael Moore is pointing the finger at the media for the situation in Iraq, and his interviewer gets testy. He starts evoking the names of journalists who have been embedded with military units...completely missing the point.
