‘Even Fake Anchors Should Have Standards’: Howard Kurtz Takes on Stephen Colbert
“Media Buzz” host Howard Kurtz took on Stephen Colbert today.
Colbert took Kurtz’s words about Hillary Clinton out of context for use on his show, "The Colbert Report."
Kurtz recently raised the question of whether it’s fair for the media to focus on Clinton’s age if she were to run for president. "Fox News has just uncovered the bombshell of a lifetime," Colbert joked. "That's right, Fox News is ready to project that in the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton will be two years older."
“Listen, Colbert, I asked whether it was fair for commentators to harp on her age – I guess that was too nuanced for your black and white view of the world,” he said.
“Even fake anchors should have standards,” Kurtz said.
