On Sunday, Howard Kurtz called out Bill Press for his radio comments equating Glenn Beck and his rally to “granting al-Qaeda permission to hold a rally on September 11th at Ground Zero.”

On the CNN show “Reliable Sources,” Kurtz asked Press point blank if the comparison was “over the top”:

You, Bill Press, said that for the Park Service to allow this rally was like “granting al-Qaeda permission to hold a rally on September 11th at Ground Zero,” Isn’t that way over the top?

Press responded, “No, I said it and I’ll stand by it.”
