When news of Arnold Schwarzenegger's alleged affair and love child broke last week, CNN decided to do a report on politicians and their infidelity. But one high-profile person was missing from their report, former New York Governor Elliot Spitzer. And it just so happens that Spitzer's current job is as a CNN host.
That didn't go unnoticed by fellow CNN anchor Howard Kurtz. On his Sunday show "Reliable Sources," Kurtz decided to call out CNN for its omission.
"[T]here was no mention of a New York governor who resigned in disgrace three years ago after patronizing prostitutes," Kurtz pointed out. Then he got a little tough: "I'm sorry. If you're going to do this kind of story, you have to include Eliot Spitzer, even if he does now host a primetime CNN program. Otherwise, you are airbrushing history."
Kurtz's thoughts, as well as a clip of the original CNN story, are available in the video below (via Noel Sheppard at NewsBusters):
