Fox News: Too Kewl 4 Skool

The Reliable Source puts some more meat on the bones of the story behind the Washingtonian’s photo shoot for its “50 Best & Most Influential Journalists” story (in the Dec. 2005 issue).

Long story short (not that Reliable Sources is long enough to warrant a Cliff Notes version): Fox News spokesman Paul Schur declined to allow Fox News VP and bureau chief Kim Hume (yes, Mrs. Brit Hume) to participate in the photo shoot (organized by FishbowlDC brother and Washingtonian Editor-at-Large Garrett Graff) because Schur (and his colleagues at Fox HQ) didn’t think that the photo’s participants (which included such nobodies as Len Downie, Chuck Todd and Phil Taubman) were “prestigious enough.”

When the Washingtonian went ahead and printed Schur’s “prestigious enough” comment (you go, girl!), Schur lashed out.

Fox News: Fair and Mentally Unbalanced.
