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