On her show on MSNBC the previous day, Rachel Maddow did cover this story and put it into context, something Mr. "Context Matters" did not. Maddow pointed out that the Republicans outnumbered the Democrats voting in their respective primaries two to one. She reminded viewers that election results are not just about the candidates but also about the voters who participate in those elections.
context matters to this guy?
That did not stop Beck from adding to this introduction, "The old problem I'm left with: How do you explain every other day of the year [when it's not the President's birthday] for the networks?" Beck's inference is clear: mainstream media is in bed with the President. Only Fox News is the network where the whole truth is told. Except, of course, Beck lied.
Accepting Beck's propaganda about the media translates to: voters can not trust mainstream media to describe our world, so they should turn to Fox. Fox "News" is the platform where Beck is allowed to routinely misinform his viewers through ignorant statements - like his claim that other networks didn't cover the Prop C story - or using purposeful deceit. This is not the first time Beck has made ignorant statements about the field in which he is employed, the media. Beck has no concern whether his claims are accurate or not, and he virtually never corrects his false claims as ethical journalists must. All that matters to Glenn Beck is the narrative, the propaganda that mainstream media cannot be trusted and Fox, by implication or explicitly, can be trusted.
Glenn Beck's paranoid deceit and false claims do not make him the bad apple on the otherwise healthy tree of Fox News. The Fox "News" network is a rotting tree with a few decent pieces of "edible" fruit. Any network that allows Glenn Beck to engage in his hypocritical and deceitful yellow propaganda has to be suspect for voters seeking a trust worthy source of unbiased information. The question that begs to be asked is why are the few with journalistic values still working for a media outlet with a clear, right-wing agenda? Sheppard Smith; is Fox "News" the best gig you can land?
Before more people start tuning into Beck'sCONvincing propaganda,
