DougJ, last week, in a thread on the attacks on the Frost family:
Anyone want to bet that Howie Kurtz defends this?
There is no way I would touch that bet, not even with Graeme Frost’s billions.
Howard Kurtz, today, in an online chat:
Howard Kurtz: Libel and slander laws only come into play when you say something that is both inaccurate and damaging about someone. Whether or not the Frost family should be considered too well-off to qualify for federal health benefits doesn’t seem to fall in that category. When the parents agreed to make their son available to the Democratic Party as a spokesman for the program, surely they must have expected that their financial situation would become part of the debate. I am not, for the record, in favor of beating up on 12-year-old boys, but the family did willingly step into the political arena.
And no, I am not apologizing for the title of this post.
