FIANALLY AN ANSWER TO WHY JOURNALISM SUCKS TODAY

Today Howard Kurtz on his Sunday show Reliable Sources did a huge Mey culpa on his remarks about Jason Collins when he announced his coming out.  The supposed apologytook almost 20 minutes and seemed a little strange so of course I looked further into the story.  What I found shocked me.  

Kurtz has a reputation of dissing fellow reporters and in some cases even has led to their suicides.   Among the only accurate reports of the Iran Contra affair Kurtz destroyed the reporter.   Same thing over Bush stealing the first election.  He poo pood journalists who focused on the truth instead of the part line.   The icing on the cake when I read about his treatment of Helen Thomas mostly about her caustic remarks about Israel’s work against the Palestine.  Kurtz not only lost a few editor jobs but has now lost two more regular watchers of his Sunday Show.

    Gary Webb, the reporter who wrote about the CIA importing cocaine to LA, worked at the the Sacramento News & Review when he committed suicide. That’s how far he fell.
