Keith Bad, Fox Worse, Says Kurtz

Media commentator Howie Kurtz says MSNBC was right to suspend Keith Olbermann, and adds that Fox News is worse.

Kurtz, answering his own question, said that while he thinks that the Countdown host made a “dumb mistake,” there are in fact worse people in the world: Fox News staffers like Dick Morris, Sean Hannity, and Karl Rove are all guilty of far worse political fundraising infractions. Ultimately, Kurtz pointed out that Olbermann’s hypocrisy is his biggest transgression, given that he used his program to lambaste News Corp. for its “eye-popping 1.2 million donation to the Republican Governor’s Association.”
