Kurtz On Erroneous Jason Collins Story: "I Screwed Up"

Dylan Byers & David Folkenflik ask Howard Kurtz about his reporting mistakes covering gay NBA player Jason Collins.

KURTZ: I watched part of the George Stephanopoulos interview. I didn't see that particular part. But, look, the mistake that I made was sloppy and inexcusable. I'm not going to offer any extenuating circumstances. I screwed up.

And here's the broader point, you kind of touched on it right here, David, because I have been a media critic for two decades, I should be held to a higher standard, because I am the host of this program, I should be held to a higher standard. I deserve the criticism. I accept it and determined to learn from this episode.
