Fox’s Howard Kurtz Defends Spicer from ‘Media Mob’: Do They Want Him to ‘Wear a Scarlet Letter’? (Mediaite)

Fox News’ Howard Kurtz defended Sean Spicer tonight following the huge backlash to his appearance at the Emmys last night.

Stephen Colbert brought Spicer on for a joke referencing that infamous moment when he got heated with reporters while making a false claim about the inauguration crowd size.

A lot of people didn’t like that this moment was being played for laughs, while Spicer himself said today he “absolutely” regrets it.
