Joe Scarborough: Glenn Beck “Is Losing It Before Our Eyes… This Can’t Last”

Reported by Ellen - February 27, 2011 -

On Friday’s Morning Joe (2/25/11), Joe Scarborough delivered a no-holds-barred indictment of Glenn Beck as a stain on the conservative movement. Scarborough said, “This guy is losing it before our eyes. He’s bad for the conservative movement, he’s bad for the Republican Party, he’s bad for Fox News. It’s that simple… Even guys over at Fox News have to start thinking this can’t last. He’s out of control.”

Scarborough also went on to quote Peter Wehner, whom Scarborough described as “Karl Rove’s brain:”

Glenn Beck has become the most disturbing personality on cable television. …What ought to worry conservatives in particular is that Beck not only has the unusual capacity to discredit virtually every cause he takes up; he also confirms the worst caricatures of the right… It looks to me like it’s only a matter of time – and I suspect not much time – until he blows apart professionally. If and when that happens, one can only hope that conservatism as a movement will have created enough distance from Beck to mitigate the damage.

Scarborough and Wehner are just the latest in a growing chorus of conservatives speaking out against Beck. In an email exchange behind the scenes, Aunty Em and I predicted that he’ll be gone from Fox News by the summer – even though Fox News should have fired him long ago.
