WATCH: Kurtz Calls Out Media's Lack of Coverage of Northam's Late-Term Abortion Remarks
The embattled Democrat is facing calls to resign over his remarks on a radio show last week in support of a bill that would repeal restrictions on third-trimester abortions.
Northam is also battling critics over a decades-old racist photo in his medical school yearbook, now claiming it was not him in the photo.
On America's Newsroom, Kurtz called out the lack of media coverage on the abortion issue, noting newspaper headlines that said Republicans made Northam's comments a 2020 issue.
"The New York Times framed the story around GOP criticism," he said, calling out the overall lack of coverage given to Northam's comments by broadcast and cable news networks.
Kurtz also said that there's a direct connection between the abortion debate in Virginia and the uproar over Northam's yearbook photo.
He said the journalists who broke the news about the photo got their tip on it from medical school classmates of Northam.
He also said those classmates were "unhappy" and "enraged" by the governor's stance on late-term abortions.
"So one not-so-indirectly led to the current scale the threatens the governor's future," Kurtz said.
