Peter Waldo commented on Howard Kurtz’ Illegitimate Defense Of Bill O’Reilly 2015-02-21 07:25:13 -0500
Kurtz, who once laid claim to being a legitimate commentator on journalism appears to have gone off the rails two years ago, after demonstrating that he was no senior commentator, but an inept reporter unable to get his facts straight. After getting canned by CNN and the Daily Beast, for his inadequacies, Kurtz pedaled over to Fox, where he has erased the last vestiges of his journalist’s credibility. It is not to say that Fox cannot offer capable insight on issues of journalism. It is simply that Kurtz has become a spin doctor, whose views on the media should be dismissed as worthless. As a principled, working journalist I have lost respect for Kurtz. He’s relegated to the Fox News PR Department and should remain there for the rest of his career writing press releases. Kurtz’s defense of O’Reilly is shamelessly disingenuous and incompetent. .
