Howard Kurtz has a new home (probably where he should have gone decades ago)

Howard Kurtz is taking his critical lens on the media from CNN to Fox News.

The media critic and longtime host of CNN's "Reliable Sources" will anchor a similar weekend show for Fox News starting in July. In making the announcement, Fox News executive vice president Michael Clemente said Kurtz is a "master of social media trends, information good and bad, and a veteran political reporter. Altogether, he will add even greater depth to a very accomplished team of reporters and anchors."


More recently, he took heat for an article on the Daily Beast about NBA player Jason Collins announcing his homosexuality. Kurtz criticized the article Collins wrote for Sports Illustrated because Kurtz claimed that Collins didn't acknowledge he had once been engaged to a woman. The problem was that Collins had mentioned his engagement in his article. Kurtz also made a video about Collins' article for a website called Daily Download that made fun of the player. Kurtz left the Daily Beast soon after the article, while CNN stood by him. Kurtz will also write a column on the media for Fox News' website.
