Eliot Spitzer and Glenn Beck debated during election

One of the criticisms of Glenn Beck asserted by this Review is that he will not debate a progressive. A comment on Beck's website pointed to the following debate that took place last year before the first presidential debate in Denver. It's an hour long, but the exchange is interesting. Pay close attention to the topic of media, and see if you can detect the lies coming out of Beck's mouth.

Did you hear the lies? They were about 46 minutes into the debate. First, Beck is still misquoting Thomas Jefferson who never penned nor spoke the words "honest questioning." Beck made that up in his first book, and he continues to distort Jefferson's words. What Jefferson actually wrote in that letter was, "Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blindfolded fear." The "homage of reason" is not in any way equivalent to "honest questioning." It's puzzling why Beck continues to use this faux quote since he never seems to question the existence of God.

fake cries and makes up "facts" to suit his false narratives

Beck is highly critical of NBC for their editing of the Zimmerman tape of the 911 call. However, Beck cherry-picks the information and therefore distorts the truth (as usual). The producer at NBC, who worked on the "Today" show segment that featured that tape was fired. That is what a news organization with journalistic ethics does when someone in the company violates those ethics. However, Beck is being a hypocrite (again) with his faux outrage at NBC because, as three bloggers noted, Beck edited a tape of Obama during a press conference in after the G-8 meeting in Canada in 2010 to deceive his viewers. It was not the first time during the election season last year that Beck told that lie, that he never edited tape of Obama

Still, this was an interesting debate. Spitzer used facts and figures while Beck pushed emotional buttons for the most past. It's too bad Spitzer did not consult a Beckologist before the debate. He could have nailed Mr. Beck for his continual deceptions and misinformation.
