Glenn Beck: ‘Daily’ Comedy Gift Keeps on Giving

Jon Stewart would still be able to put on “The Daily Show” without Glenn Beck, but it wouldn’t be nearly as entertaining.

Lately, the Fox News/syndicated radio host keeps telling outrageous whoppers, and people keep calling him on it. It’s difficult to tell whether this is some kind of strategy or if Beck — under fire on various fronts — is completely losing his marbles, but few have been as hilarious about letting the air out of his balloon as Stewart.

Of course, it’s a snowballing process: The more reckless Beck becomes, the more attention he gets. And the more attention he gets, the more he’s convinced there’s a vast left-wing conspiracy designed to destroy him. Call it the Circle of Paranoia.

As for Fox, this again raises an interesting question: Yes, hosts are entitled to state their opinions, but should they be entitled to completely misrepresent the facts?
