Media critic Howard Kurtz on network news

10/19/07 Mitch E. Perry
WMNF Drive-Time News Friday | Listen to this entire show:

Howard Kurtz is the media critic for the Washington Post, and the host of CNN’s weekly media watchdog review, Reliable Sources. He’s just written a new book on the network newscasts, called, Reality Show: Inside the last Great Television News War.

WMNF spoke with Kurtz yesterday. We began by asking him why cover television network news when Kurtz has admitted it’s somewhat of a dying medium; why not just focus on the new media that Kurtz covers for the Post and CNN.

Please tune in to WMNF on Monday night when we’ll air the last segment of this interview.
