Beck Watch: Mindless, Incoherent, Pathetic

I thought Glenn Beck was finally starting to make sense when he told Katie Couric today that John McCain “would have been worse for the country than Barack Obama.” Needless to say, some on the right weren’t as pleased as I was. Conservative radio host Mark Levin said the claim was “mindless” and “incoherent.” He added, “It may be entertaining, but from my perspective, it’s not. It’s pathetic.”

MSNBC morning host Joe Scarborough joined the right-wing anger. “You cannot preach hatred. You cannot say the president is racist,” he said. Are conservatives finally getting sick of Glenn Beck?

FOLLOW THE MONEY

Corporations and billionaires don’t fund journalism like ours that exists to shake things up. Instead, support from readers allows Mother Jones to call it like it is without fear, favor, or false equivalence.

And right now, a longtime friend of Mother Jones has pledged an incredibly generous gift to inspire—and double—giving from online readers. That's huge! Because you can see that our fall fundraising drive is well behind the $325,000 we need to raise. So if you agree that in-depth, fiercely independent journalism matters right now, please support our work and help us raise the money it takes to keep Mother Jones charging hard. Your gift, and all online donations up to $94,000 total, will be matched and go twice as far—but only until the November 9 deadline.
