“Who are our enemies? Who are our friends? This is a question of the first importance for the revolution.” -Mao Zedong

It’s one thing to attack the President of the United States and other news outlets, made fun of a woman’s miscarriage, etc. But, will the $#!* hit the fan now that Glenn Beck has essentially called Fox, News Corp and Rupert Murdoch Maoists? Beck has lost sponsors, put the network’s revenue in jeopardy and now includes the CEO of the company he works for in his attacks. Genius!

BECK: When you’re watching TV this week, you might notice a common theme on some of your favorite TV shows — service and volunteerism. You might think if you’re an average viewer, “Gee, that’s a coincidence. Look at how much it’s popping up.”

[...]

Well, this is fantastic. It’s almost like we’re living in Mao’s China right now. But Mitch Metcalf, an EIF board member and NBC executive — my God, it can’t be. Come on, Anita, call me. Lookit, Chairman Mao is right there ready to take your phone call. Go ahead. Call me on that one.

Beck may be eating those words. In attacking NBC et al. for being connected to the Entertainment Industry Foundation, he has inadvertently attacked Fox Broadcasting Co., owned by News Corp., who also owns Fox News Channel. They are also participating in EIF’s volunteer initiative. Furthermore, Rupert Murdoch sits on EIF’s “honorary board of governors.” Oops.
