Glenn Beck Criticizes… Self?

In an article on the Fox News web site written by Glenn Beck, himself, he starts off with the fear mongering about a global Swine Flu pandemic. He asserts that the approximately 150 deaths are just the beginning, yet fails to mention that every year there are approximately 36,000 flu-related deaths in the U.S., according to the CDC.

Further on, in the same article, Beck tears into the media, of which he is part, for focusing on the Swine Flu on one hand, while not paying attention to what the other hand is doing. He mentions the Air Force 1 fly over of New York and the teleprompter operator error, both of which he blames on Obama, as examples of what the media should be reporting.

And there you have the hypocrisy of Glenn Beck. He begins his rant about the Swine Flu, which he later states is getting too much coverage. Keep in mind that Fox News is covering it non stop, and on other networks I’ve seen fairly even coverage. Glenn Beck is not only a danger to others, but shows that he’s a danger to himself.

Shocking: O’Reilly Producer is a Hypocrite

If you recall, Jesse Watters is a producer of The O’Reilly Factor who was recently involved in the harassment of ThinkProgress writer Amanada Terkel. The hypocritical producer, whose apparent job includes stalking people and ambushing them to further O’Reilly’s agenda. Over 80% of the past dozen targets have been considered liberal or critical of Republicans.

Well, one could call this irony, but it’s really not unexpected… The New York Times tried, repeatedly, to interview Jesse Watters. Watters repeatedly denied. You see, that’s not irony. It’s simply hypocrisy.

Tea & Hypocrisy

It’s come to light that the people behind what is being billed as the “Fox News Channel Tax Day Tea Parties” are not the regular people with regular jobs organizing in a grass roots manner as they would have you believe. The Fox News personalities repeat, ad nauseum, the talking points about this unorganized grassroots movement. It turns out that the true organizers, besides Fox News, include FreedomWorks and Americans for Prosperity, a couple lobbying and public relations firms. And don’t forget about Glenn Beck’s $500 a plate fundraiser…

Note to TeaBaggers: Grassroots movements do not require lobbyists, public relations, fundraisers, “media” endorsement and promotion, etc. It’s called “astroturfing.”
