The Putz of Comedy
I'm already laughing:
The terrifyingly productive Howard Kurtz, "Reliable Sources" host for CNN and media maven at The Washington Post, is shopping a nearly finished satirical novel about the newsbiz, titled "Funny Is Money." Yesterday, Kurtz told me: "This is something I'm fooling around with in my spare time and we'll have to see what comes of it. The fun part is that people may recognize - or think they recognize - some major media figures." He added: "The great advantage of tackling a novel is that you don't have to bother with such annoying procedures as checking your facts."
