Howard Kurtz Gets Grilled On ‘Reliable Sources’

The tables were turned on today’s edition of “Reliable Sources” on CNN, as Howard Kurtz was interviewed by NPR’s David Folkenflik and Politico’s Dylan Byers about his Jason Collins story, his departure from The Daily Beast and his relationship with The Daily Download. Disclosure: TVNewser columnist Gail Shister often appears as a guest on the program.

“The mistake I made was sloppy and inexcusable,” Kurtz acknowledged, as Byers and Folkeflik pressed him on his errors over the last few years. As for his departure from The Daily Beast:

“Because of the unfortunate timing, some people have the impression that is the reason I am leaving The Daily Beast. In fact this was already in the works. We were moving in different directions after the closing of Newsweek’s print edition. There were a lot of personnel changes. There was downsizing. Both sides came to feel it was no longer a good fit. Then this columnist mistake happened, which I take full responsibility. But the amicable divorce was already in the works.”
