When media whore Howard Kurtz went on Fox News to debate Bill O'Reilly over something stupid (sorry can't remember what it was).
O'Reilly boasted that Kurtz's appearance on his show would lift the ratings of Kurtz's show on CNN.
Ummmmm No it didn't.
TVNewser says while Kurtx's show was No. 2 in its 11am timeslot (behind Fox News) “Reliable Sources” this past Sunday drew 472,000 total viewers and 152,000 younger viewers.
Those numbers are down from the previous Sunday and also down -24% / -15%, respectively, vs. the show’s Q1 2013 average.
Bill O’Reilly might not be as powerful as he thinks he is. But don't say anything, it will kill his ego.
Of course we have never been a Howard Kurtz fan, ever since he played with himself on camera.
