For those who think that FOX News is “better” or “more accurate” than or “different” from CNN, you should ask yourself why FOX News keeps hiring the dregs of CNN rejects. The arrogant, smug, hypocritical Howard “Howie” Kurtz is Exhibit A, FOX News’ newest on-air hire. He’s not just liberal. He’s a stark example of how liberal mainstream media reporters lie and make things up. Now he’ll be doing it at FOX News, after years of such blather on CNN. Oh, and he’s also a fan of Muslim extremists.
For decades, Kurtz hosted the most boring show on television, “Unreliable Sources,” on CNN and wasn’t afraid to lie on the air . . . and share his left-wing points of view. He was recently canned by The Daily Beast and Newsweek after he showed his penchant for inaccurate “reporting” and inability to read. He criticized Jason Collins, the former NBA player who came out as gay, for not disclosing that he was previously engaged to a woman. But, in fact, Collins explicitly disclosed that in the Sports Illustrated article in which he announced he is gay. Great stuff for a guy who markets himself as a “reliable source” in journalism and calls his show, “Reliable Sources.” (Kurtz had no problem, though, with the fact that Collins didn’t bother to tell his fiancee that he’s gay . . . for eight years! And that’s Collins’ real transgression. That and expecting us to give him accolades for telling us he likes to sleep with men.)
Then, there was Kurtz’s “interview” with Jihad Darrell Issa in The Daily Beast. Kurtz did his typical softball interview with the Hezbollah-supporting/Arafat fan Republican Member of Congress . . . except the interview wasn’t with Issa at all, but his spokesman. Kurtz lied and reported that the interview was with Issa, anyway. And even after Issa’s spokesman told him to correct it, Kurtz kept the interview as it was for two months, because if Kurtz’s employers knew his “reporting” was that fictional, he might get fired. So he kept the interview he claimed was with Issa up for months (despite knowing it was not with Issa) until he got caught. Although this incident wasn’t enough to get him fired, the Collins incident was the last straw for The Daily Beast and Newsweek, and nearly the last straw for CNN.
So what does a refugee from CNN who is a hack do? He gets a job at FOX News, where he’ll be just as unfair and unbalanced as he was at CNN. Otherwise, he’ll be doing an insincere flip-flop, which is just as bad, if not worse. (Brit Hume is another famous uber-liberal who suddenly became a conservative when he was done at ABC News and needed a new perch.)
Kurtz is in love with Islam, by the way. And I was a target for his baseless criticism on his dumb CNN show, when I wrote about how Lara Logan saw a real taste of real Islamic liberation when she was gang-raped in Cairo after cheering this savage “Islamic democracy” at Tahrir Square. (The one person on earth watching the show told me about it. Otherwise, Kurtz’s stupid attack on me would have been like an insect urinating on the sidewalk. Nobody notices.) Kurtz couldn’t bring himself to admit the truth that I published about Lara Logan, and a few years later, we all see that I continue to be vindicated in spades.
Perhaps Kurtz was bothered by this based on his own personal behavior with women, since he was apparently shtupping wife #2 (Sheri Annis, a former David Horowitz employee), while he was married to wife #1 (Mary Tallmer). I know this because unlike Kurtz, I actually have reliable sources, which included friends of his then-extra-marital-mistress/current wife at the time, who was blabbing about her famous bed partner to all who would listen. (And, remember, just because his big-mouthed sperm receptacle is conservative, doesn’t mean he is, especially in this case.)
(In another “(un)Reliable Sources” episode, Kurtz had on Emily Zanotti, a crazy woman who has been stalking me for years and who praised Muslim death, rape, and torture threats against me on her blog. Zanotti also wrote on her blog that I accused her law school and its students of being “anti-Semitic,” when I had never even written about her law school. Zanotti admitted she made this all up, and there ya go: yet another example of a “Reliable Source” in Howie Kurtz’s warped worldview.)
Howie Kurtz is an arrogant, liberal, Islamo-pandering hypocrite who was picked up at FOX News after his liberal CNN and Daily Beast/Newsweek career faltered.
Sound conservative to you? Fair and balanced?
Not even close.
“I distort, you decide” fits Howard Kurtz to a T, though. And should probably be FOX News’ new slogan.
