Beck Watch: Mindless, Incoherent, Pathetic

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


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?

Here’s a list of who’s still advertising on the Glenn Beck Program:
