Dustin Hurst Makes Waves In Montana

Looks like our old Idaho Reporter friend Dustin Hurst has encountered some turbulence in his new in Montana. A blog called Montana Cowgirl penned an article titled, “Pro-Rehberg blogger fled Idaho under a cloud.” It begins: “Dustin Hurst is a right-wing blogger that recently arrived in Helena from Idaho, and has written stories defending Congressman Dennis Rehberg and the Montana GOP, and attacking Democrats.  He calls himself a “reporter.”  His “articles” are trash with no connection to facts or truth.  Last week, for example, he wrote a story saying that Schweitzer is “happy with high unemployment.”  He also claimed that Rob Stutz had called for a pre-emptive strike against Iran, as this video explains.  Intelligent Discontent did a write up of the factual problems with some of the other blog posts Hurst was responsible for. Hurst works for the Montana Watchdog, a somewhat absurd website that is a subsidiary of the right-wing Montana Policy Institute.” More here. (Photo from Dustin Hurst Facebook page)
