Fox News anchor Howard Kurtz, who hosts the weekly media criticism show Media Buzz, is really mad at Stephen Colbert, and he seems to be confused about whether Colbert is a real journalist or not.
Basically, Kurtz did a report on whether Hillary Clinton is too old to run for President. The Colbert Report played the clip and Stephen Colbert made fun of him for asking the question and the way he asked it. Kurtz is upset they didn’t play his whole segment, claiming his work was taken out of context, but the best part is the baffling Colbert attack Kurtz wrote for Fox News Insider today about how he’s going to “take on” the Comedy Central host by criticizing him on his show this Sunday:
It’s about time someone took on Stephen Colbert.This guy—a fake anchor if ever there was one—has been maligning hard-working journalists for too long.Journalists like me.In an effort to get a few cheap laughs, this Comedy Central clown took my work out of context and, worse, engaged in selective editing. It was nothing less than a deliberate attempt to mislead viewers.I’ll be responding in spades on Sunday’s Media Buzz.
