Supreme Miscalculation

Margaret Carlson, Michael Medved, Mark Feldstein and Howard Kurtz examine the rush to report Thursday's Supreme Court healthcare ruling that led to two networks getting it wrong.

    This segment was positively the worst thing I've seen Kurtz do. I am appalled at the overall tone and how many excuses Kurtz made for his employer's colossal mistake. Between the onscreen blurbs accusing Fox of not apologizing and Kurtz' own accusations, this piece really looked like he was trying to sweep the whole affair under the rug by using the juvenile tactic of castigating someone else for a worse offense. Really now, after that ridiculous countdown (which wasn't even mentioned here) and all the other per-decision hype, why didn't CNN have a lawyer on the scene at SCOTUS to interpret the ruling for them? How is the original mistake and this subsequent snow job in any way excusable? Mr. Kurtz just sacrificed a great deal of his moral authority for the sake of his job. I am extremely disappointed, but what's worse, I will remember this piece every time he criticizes other journalists. Shameful.
