People like Howard Kurtz still take these guys seriously.

For some reason, I remembered this old post today and feel compelled to repost.  Memories . . .

. . . whenever (which is often) FOX News is accused of faking their journalism, they get all weak with the vapors. At which point ‘media critics’, the ones still allowed on television anyway (I’m looking at you Howard Kurtz, the most ethically challenged of them all), remind their viewers and readers that MSNBC and CNN and some other elvis-forsaken entity do it too! After all. To be fair. You know.

Ever seen CNN do this?

“During a segment in which Fox & Friends co-hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade labeled New York Times reporter Jacques Steinberg and editor Steven Reddicliffe ”attack dogs,” Fox News featured photos of Steinberg and Reddicliffe that appeared to have been digitally altered . . .”

Here’s a screenshot from Fox & Friends –  what Fox used is on the right; the original actual photos on the left.
