Bob Herbert is the goods

Long time NY Times op-ed columnist Bob Herbert (he’s been there forever, but resists the trappings of stardom) departs from his usual measured tone today and goes after Glenn Beck. He says a lot of obvious and sensible things, as  is his wont. This line, especially, sings:

“He makes you want to take a shower.”

  1. The event is being streamed on Facebook, now we know how many sheep you can get around the reflecting pool!


  2. Wow, what a great Op-Ed!

    I’m just concerned because to become popular people have to be “liked” by their fans. What sort of demographic subscribes to this guy and his mendacity? I mean, a reasoned look at most of his arguments would reveal their specious nature quickly.


    • Got to some day if you want a run down of the astonishing and blatantly untrue stuff that comes out of Beck’s mouth – and that his fans just eat up and then regurgitate.


  3. Hebert gives Beck the undeserved benefit of the doubt:

    He seems oblivious to the real danger of his execrable behavior.

    I think he knows exactly what he’s doing. It is how people like him operate.
