This Week On #MediaBuzz

Sharyl Attkisson said President Obama should never have used executive privilege to withhold emails showing a Justice Department official attacking her as "out of control." She also said the media, not a Philadelphia investment banker, should have found the Jonathan Gruber videos. Amy Holmes and Joe Trippi agreed that the press has held Obama accountable for his reversal on immigration but differed on the coverage. David Zurawik said television will never work with Bill Cosby again after the mounting sexual assault allegations, and Lola Ogunnaike said it was hard for the women to challenge a show business giant decades ago. Pando Daily Editor-in-Chief Sarah Lacy said it was chilling to her that an Uber executive spoke of investigating her personal life and assailed the company for a sexist culture.

Ask Howie

Mr. Kurtz, I appreciate your show, and think you bring a great perspective to journalism -- with ONE exception: you take yourselves WAY too seriously. The Lacy/Uber story is a case in point. There is NO First Amendment issue here, you realize that, don't you? Because the First Amendment speaks of what the GOVERNMENT is prevented from doing, NOT private citizens...
