Imus Fallout: Cox Calls Out Kurtz, Gregory

On CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” Ana Marie Cox made sure that Kurtz remembered his own complicity in all of this:

    KURTZ: Ana Marie Cox, clearly some of Imus’s locker room humor over the years was tolerated by CBS and MSNBC and went over the line. But…

    ANA MARIE COX, WASHINGTON EDITOR, TIME.COM: And you.

    KURTZ: And me.

And again:

    KURTZ: Now, I enjoyed going on the show, and maybe I was too quick to overlook some of the really bad stuff that was said, although it wasn’t said in conversations with me. And…

    COX: Everyone keeps saying that. I mean — I mean, David Gregory said this.

    I think, like, every — Craig Crawford. Like, all of these pundits that come on and say, “Well, you know what? He never said any of that stuff with me.”

    KURTZ: No, I’m not offering it as an excuse. I’m not offering it as an excuse.

    COX: But you can’t pretend you’re really covering your ears the rest of the time. Like, he sometimes didn’t exist when you weren’t on the show.

    KURTZ: Of course.
