All journalists have a responsibility to report and educate citizens on events and issues in a truthful and unbiased manner. Glenn Beck aired nasty programs on Fox News and a radio show. The promo was terrible, and the programs were worse. The Fox News aired three hours long episodes to attack a prominent citizen. Beck aired a bunch of lies where he portrayed George Soros as an anti-Semite on opensocietyfoundations.org.
He aired sentiments that may have led naive viewers to view George Soros as a manipulator of unions, media, Democratic Party and the President. Beck believes that Soros seeks to destroy the American Republic and to build a global state where he will be in control. This statements and implications are false and have been denounced by The New Yorker, The Neoconservative organ, Commentary, Anti-defamation League and Reason. The utterances angered some conservatives because of his cunning way of twisting facts into lies and quoting “The World According To Soros” by Connie Bruck, and using them in a deceitful context.
Beck has been dismissed as an entertainer, and it is clear that he may be nobody’s puppet but he has a master. Fox News and News Corporation Chief Executive Officers, Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes, are deemed irresponsible parties on Biography. The journalist seems to have an ignorance of recent history and does not appreciate the great things done by Soros.
