On Friday we pointed out CNN Howard Kurtz’s penchant for double dipping. Over the weekend, Kurtz, also an editor for Newsweek/The Daily Beast and co-founder of The Daily Download, was at it again, straddling his various jobs.
Kurtz on CNN:
Should the media have chased Drudge on the Condi-for-VP “scoop”? Our Reliable Sources discussion. [See here.]
The Daily Beast:
How the Drudge Report, With Its Condoleezza Rice ‘Scoop,’ Again Rules the Media [See here by Lauren Ashburn, co-founder with Kurtz of The Daily Download.]
It’s getting awfully incestuous in here. We wonder how Kurtz’s bosses at CNN and Newsweek/The Daily Beast feel about the fact that they’re both paying him to do the same thing. Media ethicist? Mind-boggling.
