When Fox News didn’t renew Glenn Beck’s contract and let him take his show to the internet, you knew it was just a matter of time before they started taking shots at one another. Glenn Beck has lobbed the first grenade, claiming that Fox News told him to stop his bizarre conspiracy-mongering about George Soros.
Moyers had said Soros has “been the victim, of course, of Glenn Beck and the right-wing, the Fox News assassins.”
In response to Moyers’ comment, Beck explained that his own former network tried to get him to clam up about his constant reporting on what he felt was Soros’ fiendish agenda to harm the American way of life.
“Here’s the real reason why George Soros is worried about little old me and the assassins, because I know the truth about him,” said Beck.
“Everyone – including the assassins [at Fox News] – told me, ‘You wanna shut up about George Soros?’
“No. No I don’t. Nope. Doesn’t make my life easier. Doesn’t make me more popular. Doesn’t do anything, except I am allowed to end my days saying I told the truth. I did what somebody should have done and tell the truth. The truth has no agenda. The truth will set you free. The truth needs to be held like a sword and a shield. He should be worried. He should be worried because I’m going to continue to expose him when he finds out the role he plays in our next little book coming out this spring. He’ll be up all night on the phone with Bill Moyers crying himself to sleep.”
I love how Glenn Beck always portrays himself as the brave truth teller standing firm in the face of persecution. It would be a lot easier to take seriously if he wasn’t so thoroughly thwacked. This man wouldn’t know truth if it crawled up his pantleg, perched on his ass and yodeled the Ave Maria. When you’re too crazy for Fox News, you’ve got a serious problem.
