Myth: Glenn Beck
Yes, Glenn Beck, the one you see and hear on TV is himself a myth, an apparition, a fabrication. As he so aptly put it in a recent issue of FORBES, Beck doesn't "give a flying crap about the political process [hence, our country] . . . we are an entertainment company". Got that? Entertainment. Not news. Not facts. Not a legitimate vision of past, present or future. Entertainment. So if you rely for reasoned analysis on the "crying man-baby", as he is referred to in France, beware. Beck's show is to news as Saturday night wrestling is to Olympic sports.
