More credit than it is due a peck of Beck
I am sick to death of Glenn Beck. There are several people on television and radio today who have absolutely weak or no credentials. Beck is one. Limbaugh is another. By the way, Ed Schultz is another. You see I am fair and balanced. I like this story because the graphic is terrific.
“How MLK fits into Glenn Beck's chalkboard
August 28, 2010 9:12 am ET by Matt Gertz
On Wednesday, Media Matters explained that "Martin Luther King would have been on Glenn Beck's chalkboard," pointing out that many of the values and ideas King espoused and stood for have been ridiculed and demonized by the Fox News host over the past year and a half. Today, we show the chart Beck could have done, but hasn't, linking King to the various present-day progressives and progressive organizations Beck regularly attacks, including Barack Obama, George Soros, the Tides Foundation, the Rathke brothers, ACORN, SEIU, Andy Stern, Cass Sunstein, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, Jim Wallis and Van Jones.
Below, we show the connections Beck has posited on his shows between the progressive ideas, individuals, and groups he attacks on a regular basis. We also illustrate how those progressive people and organization are tied to King and his associates, and how the ideas Beck attacks were shared by King. Some of the ties listed below are dubious at best, but these are the links Beck himself has drawn in his conspiratorial assault on progressivism.”
