CNN Headline News has hired Glenn Beck.
"Who?", you say?
Here are some samples of Glenn Beck's work:
"It took me about a year to hate the 9/11 victims...But the second thought I had when I saw these people [in New Orleans] and they had to shut down the Astrodome and lock it down, I thought: I didn't think I could hate victims faster than the 9-11 victims."
(regarding murdered businessman Nick Berg and his father) "Can you let your son's body become the same temperature as your son's head before you turn this into a political campaign against the president—could you do that? ...I find this guy despicable. Everything in me says that. The want to be a better person today than I was yesterday says he's a dad, he's grieving, but I don't buy that. I'm sorry, I don't buy it. I think he is grieving, but I think he's a scumbag as well. I don't like this guy at all."
"I'm thinking about killing Michael Moore, and I'm wondering if I could kill him myself, or if I would need to hire somebody to do it. No, I think I could. I think he could be looking me in the eye, you know, and I could just be choking the life out -- is this wrong? I stopped wearing my What Would Jesus -- band -- Do, and I've lost all sense of right and wrong now. I used to be able to say, "Yeah, I'd kill Michael Moore," and then I'd see the little band: What Would Jesus Do? And then I'd realize, "Oh, you wouldn't kill Michael Moore. Or at least you wouldn't choke him to death." And you know, well, I'm not sure."
Terrific! This is some fantastic stuff! I'm so glad that Headline News has deemed this man's intellect and worth sufficient to represent an international news agency on television.
If you have any, oh, I don't know, opinions on the kind of message Mr. Beck has been putting out there, pleaseclick here to send CNN Headline News a comment
