I hesitate to post this devastating Media Matters video montage (below) of Glenn Beck contradicting himself at yesterday’s rally, because there are probably people out there — Fox News viewers? — who could watch it and still find that he makes complete sense.
But the rest of you who are conscious should see this. It’ll probably confirm what you know already, that Beck is some kind of weird fraud, a dangerous showman, a pied piper leading his fans into his own nightmare vision of America … and all this only for the greater glory and — oh by the way — the greater prosperity of multimillionaire populist Glenn Beck. (Click on either of the two photos above if you still doubt this).
What’s Fox’s excuse for hiring this guy?
Answer: The politics of fear, their stock in trade.
