Media alarmed by Obama surveillance Part 1

Ana Marie Cox, Ramesh Ponnuru and Charlie Savage join Howard Kurtz to examine the media coverage of another Obama administration bombshell: According to reports from The Washington Post and The Guardian, authorities have been tracking foreign targets through online giants like Facebook, Google, Yahoo and Micrsoft.

    I think Howard Kurtz is a closet Obama-Hater, and is using his so-called unbiased format as a constant truncheon against the President!

    It's his CONSTANT, subtle, condemnation of Obama's so-called "favorable" media coverage:
    I don't watch the show weekly, but for quite some time now, Kurtz makes this assertion practically EVERY TIME I've seen the show.
    I guarantee that he will make this same assertion next week in a segment.

    If Kurtz is lauding the media for finally, and harshly, critiquing Obama – on an almost weekly basis – for quite some time now, at what point is this unvarnished criticism of Obama not the norm?!!!!!!!

    Just look at how he let biased pundit Joe Concha present his well established, biased, commentary on Obama-friendly media outlets like MSNBC.

    Furthermore, Kurtz – whom makes a living pointing fingers at everyone else – seemed genuinely 'uncomfortable' with Lisa Bloom's acknowledgement of his (Kurtz's) own shortcomings in the Jason Collins incident.

    Check yo' self man...
