You know, I’ve always been a fan of Glenn Beck. Watched him on CNN’s Headline News and of course on FOX.
I’ve read his books, and defended him on the internet when he’s been attacked.
That’s why this deal shocks me, pains me, and pisses me off.
Everyone has been hammering Joe McGinnis for his work of fiction about Sarah Palin. And by everyone, I mean even the New York Times!
Dana Loesch has a list of a some of the heavyweight liberals who have called the book a steaming pile of BS. Check it out here.
Stacy Drake reported on former Wasilla resident Rob Port’s interview with Stephen K. Bannon that exposed McGinnis for exactly the sort of worthless liar is. You can check that out here.
Robert Stacy McCain has even [semi-seriously] started a “Todd Palin Defense Fund!” [in case Todd wants to beat the ever-loving crap out of McGinnis] Check that out here.
That reminds me, Josh Painter has even more on McGinnis’ lies here.
All of this is what makes the attack on Sarah Palin, and her family, by Glenn Beck all the more despicable.
Glenn Beck TV is actually giving some legitimacy to what McGinnis is saying, and trying to get away with it by calling it “comedy.”
This puts him on the same level as über douche-bag Tucker Carlson who has called Sarah Palin a “MILF” in the past, and whose online fishwrap The Daily Caller published the vulgar rants against Sarah by Mike Tyson, and then threatened blogger Dan Riehl with a lawsuit because he called them out for it!
You can read what Dan has to say about all of that here.
In the guise of “comedy” Beck introduces the man who he claims is going to “take Jon Stewart’s job” who then turned around and did jokes that even Stewart would have too much class to do.
Look, I love good comedy, even when it’s at the expense of myself, or someone I support. This isn’t good comedy and was totally uncalled for. Andrew Breitbart has the video of this on his website, watch it here.
If that is what passes for comedy on the Glenn Beck Show these days, I think the folks paying a premium to see it are getting cheated.
Not sure why he felt the need to join the most vile elements of our society, and disrespect a fine, decent woman, mother, and grandmother, but I am very disappointed in Glenn Beck.
