Look, I don't know if Glenn Beck is a racist or not. For all I know, he's just a simple entertainer attempting (and succeeding) to cash in on the racist tendencies of the ugliest aspects of American culture.
But I will say this: It was completely unfair of Katie Couric to use her "gotcha journalism" prowess on Beck, sneak-attacking him by asking him to explain a thing he said and claimed to have discussed at great length on Fox News. Shame on you, Katie Couric!
Beck sure does seem to have sound bites — and how they can be used to distort people's words — on the mind, doesn't he? I wonder why.
