FNC’s Howard Kurtz Slams Liberal Media’s ‘Selective Outrage’ on GOP Controversies

Fox News Channel’s Howard Kurtz used the opening monologue of his Sunday media analysis show MediaBuzz to call out the media’s double standard and selective outrage in how they deal with controversial comments from conservatives and leftists. When a conservative says something controversial, Kurtz noted that “everyone goes nuts.” Yet when a leftist does the same “hardly anyone blinks.”  “When someone on the right says something inflammatory, everyone goes nuts. The media pummel that person and that’s fine. But when someone on the left does it, hardly anyone blinks. What’s the big deal? It just vanishes into the ether,” Kurtz noted in his open.
