Glenn Beck's Latest Witch Hunt: Cass Sunstein

Reported by Ellen - September 9, 2009 -

I've been traveling so I haven't had the time I'd like to devote to Beck's self-congratulating, self-aggrandizing sermonizing about Van Jones' resignation or his latest target, Cass Sunstein, "regulatory czar." As Newsweek reports, "Never mind that the office that Sunstein would head is not a new creation of the Obama administration: It has been in existence since 1980. He hardly qualifies as a "czar". But Beck has him in his sights. Recently, he urged fans, via his twitter feed, to collect and save all the information they could find about Sunstein, and yesterday he warned the Democrats would lose the vote on his nomination, and suggested they are afraid of Beck fans." Well, not quite. Democrats won a cloture vote during Beck's program, moving Sunstein's nomination forward to a likely confirmation. The video after the jump is a good sample of the kind of McCarthyesque witch hunt Beck is now conducting against Sunstein.
