Before you start yelling, those are his exact words. Or at least the subject line of his daily email. (His website says she’s pimping them.)
Point being, Glenn Beck is not happy that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton voiced her support for Al Jazeera saying it was putting American media to shame and winning the international information war. He thinks it’s insane.
“We knew it was the propaganda arm of the Middle East and Islamic extremism…We knew it. Now suddenly we’re all saying, oh, yeah, Al Jazeera, there’s real news for you…She is not legitmising them. She is promoting them. The numbers are going up. Why? Because it’s real news. You have the Secretary of State of the United States of America saying you cannot get real news here in America. You can only get it from Al-Jazeera and everybody knows it. This is insanity.”
Meanwhile, Beck seems unaware that Al Jazeera has not been pushed onto our cable channels…. quite the opposite, in fact.
But he is right in one sense…it is totally, completely insane that with the money and resources and access America has we are losing the information war against Al Jazeera. And we are. Make no mistake about that.
