1. Important UPDATE & CORRECTION . . . . .
Edited on Thu Oct-25-07 02:03 AM by charles t

Update and Correction

It appears that Mr. Balfe is the producer of Beck's radio program, and is not the producer of Beck's CNN Headline News show, nor, apparently does Mr. Balfe have any relationship with CNN.

Glenn Beck made the comments, as documented in the above Media Matters article, on his radio program, broadcast by the Premiere Radio Networks, part of Clear Channel Communications, not on his CNN Headline News show.

That this involved the radio broadcast rather than his television broadcast is clearly indicated in the Media Matters article.

It was my misreading of the article which caused me to incorrectly assume Beck's comments were from his television broadcast on CNN.

While perhaps (as I believe) CNN would benefit from re-assessing the quality of broadcasters they hire, CNN should not be incorrectly held responsible for broadcasting this specific example of demagoguery.


(At the time I became aware of this for updating, the time for editing the original post had expired.)
