Howie's job

I've never paid much attention to Howie Kurtz. He seemed like a waste of my time. Everything I read about him suggested that his role in commentary on the media was not to critique it but to protect its cozy relationship with conservative power.

Bingo! I just spent eight minutes I'll never get back watching him push forward right-wing talking point after right-wing talking point.

Kurtz's job is to defend the corporate Establishment and its Washington handmaidens against the slightest encroachment by the most tepid liberalism.
