But his comparison of how Howie Kurtz, aka "The Putz" seems to have problems with the fact that progressive bloggers pointing out the public prostitution of a GOP shill is somehow invasive needs to be emphasized.

Hence, why Kurtz should NOT BE a Journalism Critic for the Washington Post, but instead perhaps consider working for that pissant other paper in Washington.
