Thursday, he discussed the book with Jon Stewart on the Daily Show. To view a video clip of the interview, click here.
So, how does someone who covers the media on their weekly CNN Sunday morning program, cover a new book about the media that he happened to have wrote? Well, on Reliable Sources this morning, Kurtz invited Gail Shister, Frank Sesno, and David Folkenflik to interrogate him about Reality Show. At the end of the broadcast, he decided maybe he needed to take matters into his own hands and interviewed himself.
