    Dear Mr. Kurtz, I was amazed at your contrition, apology, and open criticism on this issue. I have never seen such clear regret in my private life, let alone on television. Well done, Sir. It takes guts. I love the show.

    This recent episode is nothing news for Kurtz .. in 2009 he did it - not once - but twice.

    The MSM cared less - the reason IMO it didn't involve one of their sacred biases.

    Both links to "part 1" and part 2 of this video play the same segment [part 2]. Please fix or does anyone one have another url for the correct part 1 of this interview?

    Well after they cancel Howie at least there is a job waiting for him. Yes, now that Rick Sanchez is contributing on Fox, HS sports play by play gig is available. I wonder can Howie do this without showing bias?

    With all the feigned humility he can muster Kurtz corrects the erroneous statements he made about Jason Collins. But then in a feeble attempt to deflect attention away from his own incompetence Kurtz throws Chris Broussard under the bus. This would be pathetic even if he accurately represented Broussard’s comments. But of course he did not. Just as he did with Jason Collins, Kurtz misrepresents Broussard’s comments by trying to give the impression that Broussard intended them to be a personal attack on Collins. The truth is Broussard was simply answering a question about his religious convictions regarding homosexuality. Broussard, unlike Kurtz, was simply being honest. Broussard has 10 times the integrity that Kurtz does. And truth be told, there was no reason for Kurtz to even try and bring Broussard’s name up.

    Allowing two media critics to turn the tables in him and grill him over his reporting? On his own show, no less? I wasn't expecting that. I think this shows both courage and integrity. Howard, I am impressed. Good job.

    To err is human, licentiousness breeds deceit. Collins is a man ripened with deceit.

    I've followed Howard Kurtz for many years. It would take far more than an honest mistake to alter my high opinion of him. I appreciate his work.

      He's made more than a few mistakes. Many of them were mentioned on his show – he lied in an article about interviewing Daryll Issa and he incorrectly attributed inflammatory comments to Nancy Pelosi and Greta Van Susteren on separate occasions. He was also one of many journalists who tarred and feathered poor Gary Webb for his reporting on the Nicaragua Contras. Webb turned out to be right all along, but only after he had killed himself.

    He is only being scrutinized because it involves an issue important to liberals. Howie is far from balanced. I watch this show every week and he often says things that show his bias....which is ironic considering the purpose of the show.

    Give him a break! He's a good reporter, come on things happen.
