Glenn Beck on Health Care

If you are a regular of this blog you know that we are no fan of the mainstream media. Some of the worst offenders of this group are the cable news trio of MSNBC, CNN and Fox News. In fact, the last time we included a video from any of these three networks we expressed our disgust with an MSNBC segment featuring Keith Olberman and Janeane Garofalo. That's why it was so surprising to us to watch the above clip from the Glenn Beck show as seen on Fox News. It features what can only be described as containing real, actual shreds of analytical thought in regards to the history and ethics of health care. You don't have to agree with what Glenn Beck says to appreciate the narrative he is trying to weave here.

I am only casually familiar with Glenn Beck and the Glenn Beck show so I do not want to defend everything the man has ever said. Some of the audio and video clips I have seen of him are pretty nutty. He also has some pretty provactive thoughts from time to time as well. In the included video, he strung together quite a segment. Is there some fear mongering? Yeah. Is his brief moment of tears a bit much? Perhaps. Is it partisan? Yes, but he makes some very valid points. Please watch the included video as it is far above the typical level of analysis you will find from most forms of mainstream media.
