Judy Kurtz Goes Hollywood

In the latest video feature from The Hill’s Howiella Judy Kurtz, the publication rolls out the red carpet and takes us to Tinseltown for their “Red Carpet Rundown.” I’ll give credit where it’s due: Judy is comfortable in front of the camera and does a decent job of delivering her content. Everything else, however, is a different story. For starters, can they not get a better backdrop? Obviously, those aren’t REAL lights and cameras. It’s a green screen. Hell, they could have put ANYTHING back there. Personally, just a giant Howard Kurtz head would have made me watch a lot longer.

Secondly, what’s with the content? This whole thing gets teed up like it’s the frigging Oscars and she mentions a book party that The Daily Caller is having for it’s new book about President Obama being a lizard or something like that. That’s what she LEADS with. The followup is the story about those two little media personalities known as Jon Stewart and Bill O’Reilly. Good idea to bury that item. Then again, it’s not like she gives ANY new info on the event they are having. We are told when and where the event takes place, but that was news two weeks ago. Oh, but she also tells us that they plan to “debate political issues.” No shit? They’re debating politics? Those two guys? Weird. I figured they were going to have an extended banjo-picking jam session.
