Very Afraid

Howard "the Coward" Kurtz, who gave us saturation coverage of Helen Thomas' downfall, will decide what's media news and what's not:

Howard Kurtz, the media editor of the Washington Post, was among those journalists critical of Thomas, suggesting that she should "go home" to Lebanon and that she is a heroine to Hezbollah. Asked why the mainstream media has largely ignored Peretz's views over the years, Kurtz replied: "I'm afraid I just haven't focused on the subject."

When you spend all your time obsessing over Lindsay Lohan and Tiger Woods and moonlighting as Bob Woodward's p.r. flack, there's not a second to spare reporting substantive media stories that don't fit your right-wing agenda.
