It's been a rough week for media critic Howard Kurtz, who took a barrage of criticism when he inaccurately accused gay basketball player Jason Collins of not coming clean about his previous engagement to a woman. Kurtz "parted ways" with the Daily Beast after the gaffe, though he says that was already in the works. Tomorrow, he gets a chance to explain himself on his own CNN show, but with a twist. Instead of playing host, Kurtz will be interviewed by Politico's Dylan Byers and NPR's David Folkenflik, notes Byers at his Politico blog. The show, Reliable Sources, airs at 11 Eastern.
