Howard Kurtz appeared on Wolf Blitzer today and talked about the Jeff Gannon story.

Doesn't Kurtz read anything except his own columns?


Kurtz: ...Should some of his liberal critics, these liberal bloggers have started investigating his personal life in an effort to discredit him.

They investigated him because of your next question Howard.

Kurts: a lot of people were questioning well why does this guy have White House press credentials because he doesn't write for a newspaper or a magazine...

Is Talon a real news organization?

Media Matters has the lowdown on Talon News here

More on the real Jeff Gannon here

How easy is it to get press credentials?

Kurtz: He doesn't have a permanent, or what's called a hard pass. He just gets cleared into the White House on a day to day basis which is a priviledge that's pretty much open to any journalist.

So since we have a website can I get into the White House Press briefing?

(sorry, I can't post much more on it because of illness)

However Fablog does it for me. It's too funny.
