Greta Response to Kurtz Stays Unpublished

Following Howard Kurtz‘ story last Thursday that included David Zurawik‘s critique of Greta Van Susteren‘s interview with Gov. Sarah Palin, Van Susteren responded on her blog, Gretawire.

But the response was quickly taken down. She told TVNewser on Thursday she planned to edit it and re-post, but it has remained unpublished. Emailers have asked why it was removed, but today she says she “never got around to it…and now it seems old.”

Johnny Dollar has an image of the complete post before it was taken down.

Here’s a part:

I wish Howard Kurtz of The Washington Post (and who also works for my competitor CNN) had asked me about this specific paragraph (see below in black) before it was published in today’s Washington Post. Howie, in writing his story for the Post, repeats the nastiness of what a TV critic named Zurawik has to say about NBC’s Matt Lauer and me without giving me a chance to reply. I like Howie…he is a friend of mine…he called me today but did not ask me about Zurawik’s comments below.
