A Methadone-like substitute for #leveson.

TV I don't really know who Howard Kurtz is. I don't really know the controversy is that he's at the centre of. But I do know that this is one of the most exciting pieces of television I've seen in a while.

Kurtz presents a show on CNN called Reliable Sources and during this episode he apologises for his mistake and is then grilled by two rival media commentators about that mistake plus his other failings as a journalist.

For those of us missing #leveson, this is a pretty good methadone like substitute, especially in the moments when for all of his control, there are hesitations and slips when he realises the other cohorts are determined to cover topics he wasn't necessarily prepared for.

The clips isn't embeddable but you can watch it at Mediaite though don't read the post before it. As is their custom it's essentially a synopsis of what's to come.
