Not for the first time, Washington Post media reporter Howard Kurtz falls down on the job. Late in his daily web Media Notes yesterday he found room for a brief item or two on the “mini-Watergate” brewing in Albany, New York, now that Eliot Spitzer’s modus operandi against opponents has blown up in his face. But strange that in a column that calls itself “Media Notes” Kurtz’s mentions only the political aspect and ignores entirely the indispensable role that “pliant reporters,” as a Wall Street Journal editorial dubs them, played in abetting Spitzer’s dirty work.
So what is it, Howie? Are you reporting on the press, or covering up for it?
