    • It was an HD problem. There was no broadcast after 5am CT for FNC, CNN, NBCSN, Ovatiion, and Comedy Central. Fusion and BBC World News were affected later. An election mix channel will be in the old Al Jazeera slot at channel 347. What was worse was that I was without internet from 6pm Thursday until 6am Friday. CenturyLink had an outage in Grand Island, NE.

    • Zurawik use to be a frequent Kurtz guest.

      Kurtz is none too bright, but it would have been much more commiserate with Zurawik’s well-founded beef on the media if he had stayed there.

      The content of Stelter’s show is particularly one-sided. His show and his Twitter feed is almost nothing but assumption laden memes and high horse oratory, made all the more insufferable by the glib and blinkered way he ignores that CNN could be Exhibit A for his own indictments.
