Just in time for Halloween, Glenn Beck is on Faux News with another witch hunt.
Witch hunt scene from “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” (1975)
Via Media Matters:
In attacking Anita Dunn, claiming that she “worships” her “hero” Mao Zedong, Glenn Beck has targeted yet another Obama administration official in his Fox News-assisted witch hunt of President Obama’s so-called “czars.” Beck and Fox News have previously attacked with falsehoods and spurious claims White House officials Kevin Jennings, Cass Sunstein, Harold Koh, and Van Jones.
First question: Who is Anita Dunn? Anita Dunn is the interim White House Communications Director.
Next question: Does she worship Chairman Mao? Not any more than Senator John McCain does. Both Dunn and McCain made joking, ironic references to Mao.
Last question: How stupid is Glenn Beck? Very stupid. But he makes $23 million a year.
UPDATE: Media Matters: Beck, Drudge, WND, Fox Nation falsely accuse Dunn of admitting White House “control” over news media. Based on remarks she made before Obama became president and before she was hired by the White House– about controlling the message, not the media.
