The Daily Beast’s Howard Kurtz made this vlog about Sports Illustrated’s Jason Collins story unavailable to the public on YouTube after The Atlantic’s David Graham spotted a grievous error in his reporting. Kurtz based the video on his Daily Beast article claiming Collins had concealed his past relationships with women.
Says Kurtz in the video, which is no longer available on his Daily Download YouTube channel:
“If you leave out the fact that you dated this woman for eight years and that you were engaged to be married, then you have not told the whole story and I think this really muddies the whole plotline.”
But here’s what Collins told Sports Illustrated: “When I was younger I dated women. I even got engaged.”
- Hillary Clinton made her debut with VP pick Tim Kaine, who spoke on support for immigration reform and gun control, dipping into Spanish.
- The gunman who killed at least 10 people at a Munich, Germany mall on Friday was an 18-year-old "obsessed" with mass shootings, police said.
- ISIS has claimed responsibility for a bombing Saturday that killed at least 80 people in Afghanistan.
