After weeks of effort by many people here and in many organizations, the biggest crack in the armor of hate, lies, and bigotry has spread wide open.
Glenn Beck has been put on hiatus, vacation, as in gone for a week.
It seems that ColorOfChange
may be having an effect.
TVNEWSER Update

our tipsters tell us it was Beck himself who was telling Fox staffers last week that he was "forced to take the week off."

POLITICO story here.
TVNEWSER has a new update. See the previous link.
The SS Beck. It's not a ship.
Can we bring his ratings down? I can only HOPE.

I just read this at TVNEWSER. The site has been reliable in the past and doesn't go for the sensational or tabloid news.

First on TVNewser: Tipsters inside Fox News tell us Glenn Beck's vacation this week from his Fox News show was not planned. We hear Beck was told to take this week off to let some of the heat surrounding him die down. That heat began July 28 on "Fox & Friends" when Beck said he thought Pres. Obama has "a deep-seated hatred for white people," adding, "This guy is, I believe, a racist."

> Update: Hiltzik tells TVNewser: "It's sad and disappointing that despite denials from all parties involved -- Fox and Glenn -- and with objective proof that plans were made months ago, that someone continues to peddle this completely bogus story."

Story here.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
