Howard Kurtz Out At The Daily Beast! (Jason Collins Flack)

Reliable Sources?????? 
There is something about Howard Kurtz that has bothered me since I first watched is Reliable Sources show. First, he is guilty of hosting a show that has not been the best at Reliable Sources.  

Thus, I am in no way surprised at his demise at the Newsweek's Daily Beast.  As is the case with some who are watching America's reaction to Jason Collins going open with his sexuality, I am finding the reaction of many as shameful as the reaction to Barack Obama as the first African-American President of the United States.  Kurtz's reaction and actions post Collins' self-outing is no surprise   While it may come across as a bit snarky, I am deriving a bit of satisfaction form the releases over at Newsweek.

The Huffington Post's Michael Calderone, who recently reported about Kurtz's involvement with a little-known website and the questions his relationship raised, obtained a statement released by Brown. She said:
The Daily Beast and Howard Kurtz have parted company. Under the direction of our newly named political director John Avlon we have added new momentum and authority to our Washington bureau with columnists such as Jon Favreau, Joshua Dubois and Stuart Stevens joining our outstanding DC team of Eleanor Clift, Daniel Klaidman, Michael Tomasky, Eli Lake, David Frum and Michelle Cottle - giving us one of the best politics teams in the business which was instrumental in this week’s Webby win for Best News site.
