Howard Kurtz defends CNN on the lack of coverage in Tehran

Twitter was all aflutter yesterday with criticism of CNN for its lack of coverage of the on-going protests in Tehran (see #cnnfail and
#IranElection on Twitter, also this article from the NY Times).

Howard Kurtz, of CNN’s Reliable Sources offered a defense CNN via Twitter itself:

Maybe CNN should have taken CNNi feed last evening. But it was middle of the night in Iran, and even journalists have to rest sometimes.
Howard Kurtz, via Twitter

If you ask me, CNN should take CNNi feed every day, all day(*).

(*) Except for the cricket scores. They can leave those out. 🙂
