March on Washington 'a production of MSNBC'?

Media

Media critic Howard Kurtz, formerly of CNN and now with Fox News, weighs in on Wednesday's celebration of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington:

[A]t times it seemed to be a production of MSNBC, which not only devoted the most airtime from the mall but licensed the right to air the 1963 dream speech from the King family.

That might not be the most thoughtful comparison. It's like saying the Kermit Gosnell trial "seemed to be a production of Fox News" simply because Fox covered it more than any other news channel did. That's stupid.

Furthermore, CNN also licensed the right to air Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech in its entirety. Not just NBC. (h/t our own Madeleine Morgenstern)

But this is also Kurtz, a man who recently wrote a column questioning whether a journalist's daughter's Facebook photos "go too far?" because she's posing in "a Swiss-cheese bra that leaves little to the imagination."
