Glenn Beck: 'Cars for Clunkers' is a Government Plot to Take Over Your Computer (more)
Just checking around the blogs to see who is buying this nonsense.
- Maggie's Notebook
- NewsBusters "Say what you want about the Fox News Channel's Glenn Beck and his antics, but to give credit where credit is due, he exposed some disturbing language from the Obama administration's "Cash for Clunker" program Web site Cars.gov."
- Frugal Café
- Atlas Shrugs "... knowing all that we know about the left and their radical president - this is a powerful tool in their war on the American people and their politics of personal destruction. ... Do not hit OK if you do choose to use the cars.gov site. DO NOT."
What makes this story interesting is, how far can Fox go with this Beck dude without getting pilloried for using a "news" channel to disseminate this kind of nonsense?
Right now, Fox News Channel is a cable version of the Weekly World News
(of bat boy
fame). Fox commentators like Beck are hardly different from the ravings of (deliberately over-the-top) Ed Anger
I guess when you're paranoid (or want to use paranoia for political ends) the sky's the limit.
Sir, you have defamed the late, lamented Weekly World News. How dare you!!!
[Perusing the tabloid front pages this week, I see that Michelle and Oprah are fighting over Barack. Now that's news I can use!]
gmoke: Sorry if I came off that way. Actually, I find the WWN to be quite a good read. Years ago I got a subscription for my sister. Boy was she surprised at first (but then came to enjoy it). Alas, it's not printed on paper anymore.
I had to explain the WWN to foreign visitors.
Furiner, "I saw on one of your newspapers that doctors have performed a head transplant."
Me, "Really? Where did you see this newspaper?"
Furiner, "At the check out in the supermarket."
Me, "Oh... we have to talk."
