Howard Kurtz Now On Fox News Fits The Mold Perfectly

Did Howard Kurtz mention the word "standards" this morning?

Jason Collins, NBA basketball player, self-disclosed about his homosexuality in early 2013. Collins was lauded by many, including President Obama, and unfortunately ridiculed by some. One major face of criticism came from a supposed media reporter Howard Kurtz.

Kurtz purposefully stepped well outside of his standard fare on Reliable Sources to attack Jason Collin's past.  A past Collin has fully reported.  

We have linked a Buzz Feed video below. For sake of clarity we are a link to another Buzz Feed piece for fully disclosure. Full disclosure also points a more dire finger at the "unethical " Howard Kurtz.

Why are we going here today? Kurtz has responded to a Comedy Central spoof with typical Fox News attacks and silliness. Yes, Fox News. Within Weeks of Kurtz blowing out his credibility and character, he was hired by Fox News. Isn't it amazing how often Fox News "sops" the plate after media professional throw-up all over themselves. It is as if they have to become sufficiently soiled in some way to meet the Fox News litmus test.  [Note: the Juan Williams hire was another example of extreme sopping after O'Reilly moved Williams to a firing at NPR.]

From Jason Collins' 
 Sports Illustrated article (Apr. 29, 2013):

When I was younger I dated women. I even got engaged.

We should note The Daily Beast apologized for the Kurtz column; linked above.

During a 15 minute CNN "mop-up" segment Kurtz spoke the following.

Oh, Kurtz's reputation and professional established recently reacted to the Comedy Central segment mentioned above.

Fox host flips after Colbert mocks him: ‘Even fake news anchors should have standards’ (via Raw Story )
Fox News host and media critic Howard Kurtz on Sunday lashed out at Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert, who had recently mocked his report on Hillary Clinton’s age. “That’s right. Fox news is ready to project that in the 2016 presidential election…
