Fox News’ Howard Kurtz Slams NY Daily News ‘Daddy’s Little Ghoul’ Cover as ‘Utterly Pathetic’

Fox News’ Howard Kurtz criticized both The New York Times and the New York Daily News for coverage of the deadly violence in Gaza yesterday.

Anchor Sandra Smith said a Times article “failed to mention the Hamas militants disguised as protesters who Israel blames for firing up tensions until the 42nd paragraph.”

Kurtz called it “a problem for journalism that goes beyond the New York Times,” saying the confrontation was “orchestrated by Hamas” and the media is downplaying that angle.

Smith brought up the Daily News“Daddy’s Little Ghoul” cover, referring to Ivanka Trump‘s presence in Israel for the embassy opening as the violence was going on.

“I find that cover to the utterly pathetic,” Kurtz said. “We know that the Daily News hates President Trump, hates Jared and Ivanka, apparently isn’t a big fan of Israel as well.”

Kurtz defended Ivanka and Jared Kushner‘s presence in Israel yesterday and reiterated that “this was a confrontation that Hamas wanted.”
