Will Kurtz Talk About Eason's Fables?

Howard Kurtz is in the middle of conducting his hour-long Media Backtalk live chat session. I and a number of CQ readers submitted questions on Eason's Fables. Will Kurtz break the silence? So far (11:23 CT), he hasn't.

UPDATE: 11:34 -- Still nothing. He's talking about the use of anonymous sources instead.

UPDATE II: Kurtz apparently refused to answer our questions. He's not the independent voice I thought he was.

However, I have it on good authority that a major-city broadsheet is working on an Eason's Fables story. I'll let you know more later.

UPDATE III: Will Collier tells it like it is:

Anybody here believe that Kurtz didn't receive a single question about Easongate today? I sure don't--I sent half a dozen of them myself.

You're a coward, Howard. Your silence, your outright stonewalling in failing to even mention a developing story about one of your bosses isn't just deafening, it's damning.

We'll all remember this the next time you run a story about conflicts of interest in "journalism." We'll all remember you covering for your boss. Shame on you. You wouldn't take this from another reporter--and certainly not from any politician--in the same position.

Shame on you.

I know I re-sent my question at about the 11:35 CT mark. You can see where it got us.
