Karl Rove makes Howard Kurtz wonder if television news networks are too partisan

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?

    Ok, so if there are no partisan broadcasters, then MSNBC has no shows …

    Kurtz may be onto something here … even a blind squirrel finds the occasional nut …

      Even when it’s pointed out to them they still don’t care – unless it’s on Fox.

    If CNN dropped their partisans, they’d have no staff left.

    He went from being nationally despised to pitied. That meltdown was a catharsis for this country. It allowed us to see just how power hungry and in denial that whole party truly is.
