Glenn Beck Goes to War
Fox News personalities are so sensitive. After White House Communications Director Anita Dunn said that “we don’t need to pretend that this is the way that legitimate news organizations behave,” Glenn Beck grabbed his toys and declared war.
Dunn told The New York Times, “We’re going to treat them the way we would treat an opponent.”
Beck jumped on that phrase, making a mental leap to the war in Afghanistan.
We’re pretty sure Dunn meant political opponent, a role Fox News has worked hard to play, but apparently Beck took it as a threat to bomb his wedding party. — PS
