Glenn Beck Uses Vicks to Make Himself Cry
Reported by Alex - October 2, 2009 -
We already know Glenn Beck is a phony who makes stuff up, laughing all the way to the bank as he cynically exploits the anxieties of ordinary Americans. We've even seen him exploit his own daughter's disability and pretend to boil a frog alive to further his agenda. And of course, there's the crying. Crooks and Liars has a video that shows us how he does it.
Video after the jump.
Jason Linkins over at Huffington Post reminds us that Beck made these less-than-positive remarks about the photographer, Jill Greenberg, after she bragged about making John McCain look bad in a photoshoot for The Atlantic:
"The Atlantic is sending a letter of apology to McCain. They will not be paying [Greenberg], and they're considering a lawsuit. Good, they should. Greenberg said that, since some of her artwork was anti-Bush, quote, "Maybe it was somewhat irresponsible for them to hire me." Wait a minute. Let me see if I have this right. She does a horrible job and then she blames her employer? That's right, I forgot. She's a liberal.
"By the way, this isn't the first time this photographer has been in the middle of controversy. In 2004, to describe her political helplessness, she took a series of supposedly artsy photos of toddlers crying. How did she get this shot? Well, she gave the kids candy, and then she snatched it away from them. They'd cry uncontrollably, and she'd just click away. Isn't it just fantastic art? Nothing more beautiful than a child being terrorized."
