So, it took Karl Rove’s on-air performance on Election Day to inspire Newsweek’s Howard Kurtz to ask if television news networks should “drop partisans” from their lineups? Not only does Kurtz write for Newsweek — the magazine this week featuring President Obama dressed as Napoleon on its cover — he also hosts CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” so we assume he owns a TV and gets CNN and some of those other networks.
Twitter tries to clue him in to what’s been going on in network newsrooms for the past, oh, 50 years.
Will Kurtz approach CNN management and demand to be let go?
