So now comes word that Glenn Beck’s ratings have surpassed those of the great Bill O’Reilly in the highly sought-after 25-34 year-old age group. Well, how surprising can Beck’s popularity be, really?
I occasionally watch Beck myself just to see what lunacy he’s committing. You know how it is: It’s like watching a bad car accident. You know you shouldn’t, but. . .
Some advertisers have found him too odious to represent their products, so they have pulled their ads. But he’s still pulling in viewers. So let’s all celebrate the First Amendment, which permits even crazies to have their say.
