Scariest News Ever

Is Howard Kurtz is the next Candace Bushnell? From Lloyd Grove today:

The terrifyingly productive Howard Kurtz, “Reliable Sources” host for CNN and media maven at The Washington Post, is shopping a nearly finished satirical novel about the newsbiz, titled “Funny Is Money.” Yesterday, Kurtz told me: “This is something I’m fooling around with in my spare time and we’ll have to see what comes of it. The fun part is that people may recognize – or think they recognize – some major media figures.” He added: “The great advantage of tackling a novel is that you don’t have to bother with such annoying procedures as checking your facts.”

We’ll save you snarky people out there the trouble of making a bad joke about “how is a novel different from the fiction he writes on a daily basis? Blah blah blah.” Really? Is that the best you can do? Here, have fun with this.
