Embarrassed By Beck? | Andrew Sullivan
Compared with Sean Hannity, for example, Beck seems to me to be a relative innocent. Hannity is a cynical liar and cool propagandist. You can trust nothing he says and although I find it hard to diagnose the motives behind Beck’s enthusiasms (money? fame? emotional instability? misplaced patriotism?), he is, compared with Hannity, a model of genuineness.
I can imagine that there are people on Fox that are genuine and believe that they are in the news business and they inform their audiences in an honest way.
I can not imagine that Beck is such a person.
The fact the some people at Fox can see this makes me hopeful.
