Crooks and Liars analyzes Glenn Beck:
I’m not sure what Fox News thought it was getting when it hired Glenn Beck away from CNN, but what they’re getting is one serious train wreck of some of the most gobsmackingly weird and embarrassingly maudlin on-air performances in major-network history. Considering that we’re talking about Fox here, that’s saying something.
On Monday for one of his monologue segments Beck had the camera zoom in on his eyes so people could see them, while another camera kept his headshot in view. It was obvious what they were trying to achieve: Look into his eyes and see his earnest sincerity and you know he’s a guy just like you and me and isn’t that swell and make you feel better, and doesn’t he make sense even when he talks complete lunacy?
