***UPDATE: Beck and Ablow respond***

It didn’t take two questions into Beck’s interview about his new apolitical book before Meredith Vieira asked Keith Ablow, sitting next to Beck, if he had second thoughts about putting his name on the same book with such a controversial person. But that was just the beginning. A few more questions in and Beck might as well have been on trial for the massacre in Tucson as the interview turned to the predictable ‘heated rhetoric’ false narrative with Beck being grilled for things he’s said in the past, including of course when he said Obama was a racist.

I have a feeling his radio show will be very interesting this morning.


UPDATE: Beck and Ablow talk about the interview on Beck’s radio show:

    Beck and Ablow showed so much class with the corrupt bastards here. Vieira (who does not wear panties) was doing fine until it seems as if maybe her producer said in her ear “okay enough of this attack”.

    I will get around to reading this book but I’m in the middle of Newt’s, then Broke and P & P’s.

    How in the heck was “blood libel” part of the “hateful rhetoric”? It was Sarah Palin’s description of how fracking hateful the rhetoric got.

    Let me tell you what Andrew Wilkow said yesterday (If you don’t have XM Radio you are missing THE best conservative talkers imho).
    He said the next time a Repub or Conservative is on an interview with a corrupt bastard and they bring up the Tuscon narrative “just interrupt them. Stop them and say. I’ll answer your question but, before you go on..has your husband stopped beating you Meridith?” If it’s David Gregory just say..do you still beat your wife David? What will happen is, they will freeze right there and say that’s a lie!! I don’t beat my wife and never have!! Then you say, “exactly. It’s a lie just as big and outlandish as the narrative you are persuing.”

    Brilliant! Wilkow is awesome!

      It is what it is going to take, the nation would cheer to have that happen. Fight fire w/fire, doesn’t mean you have to stoop to their level, but it does mean you don’t allow them to walk all over you.

  • Jim

    I didn’t mind the interview too much. She tossed out some hard questions which is what you want to see from both sides. Beck handled it very well. I do wish she would do the same with her liberal guests though.

    • grizzlybarrmomma

      J-Didn’t mind?. I respect your opinion. I’m just wondering if we’ve seen this typical lib bias so much that this time it didn‘t seem that bad.

      Meredith – Just interview him about his book as if you don’t have an agenda to make him look like a hate monger. It’s interesting that they only have “Obama is a racist” statement to put Beck in their gun site.

      Why not bring up the fact that he’s come a long way —– All the way to D.C. twice with over 1 million Americans gathering in D.C. .. Hello, what other average citizen has done that…… and for the purpose of building up America – founders etc. He embraces all peace loving, republic loving Americans…… Beck doesn’t have some racist agenda like others who want to kill the white crackers (and I‘m not applying this to O).

      • grizzlybarrmomma

        I happened to be there on 9-12. Not because I knew about – I already had planned to be there. I learned it was going to happen only a couple days ahead….So I called the D.C. police thinking the subway etc could be an issue for us with almost a million people being there. Do you know what they said—We don’t know anything about this —And as far as travel –the only time there would be an issue is for foreign dignitaries coming and they put more men on…..I reiterated to him you haven’t heard a thing?……1 mill…..Nope, he even checked with others—-nope no special orders…..

        Was there an issue with the subway- you bet and these idiots were scrambling — on one subway we were told to stop and not descend down to the platform because it was swarming with Concerned Americans……It was the best ‘stumble upon it’ event I’ve experienced.

        And we’re not going to put up with this Liberal Bull Puckie any more…..
        DON’T SUPPORT THIS LIB. MEDIA BY PUTTING ANY OF YOUR MONEY IN THEIR POCKETS

        • grizzlybarrmomma

          ALL LIB. MEDIA – UNTIL AN ALL AMERICAN MEDIA IS LAUCHED- WITH TRUTH FIRST- THERE WILL ALWAYS BE SOME SLANT- BUT TODAYS STEEP INCLINE DEFIES GRAVITY..

      • Jim

        Look, I agree that she is a liberal and she is showing her bias. I’m just saying that I have no problem with hosts giving hard interviews. It makes the shows much more interesting and shows you much more about the people they are interviewing. The only problem that I have is that she doesn’t do the same for his liberal guests.

        • grizzlybarrmomma

          J- I agree but it’s not only that she doesn’t do the same to libs but also that the hard interview always follows the lib. politics – questions based on lies. Why in the world did she even bring up Palin.

          I’m just getting a little more detailed… :)

  • grizzlybarrmomma

    MEREDITH – Hello, lights on but nobodies home – elevator doesn’t go to the top floor…….
    This agenda of yours is the very reason why millions of Americans don’t listen to you until you interview the Beck man….
    Your liberal attack agenda is a bunch of BULL PUCKIE……

    Glenn, I dont think the things you have said recently have been “jokes”- but then, thats why we like you.

  • OBOY!

    Ok. Let me get this straight, she has him on to discuss his NEW book, “GUIDE TO DEFEAT ANGER & FIND COMPASSION”, and asks if he has regret over some ridiculous thing he said 8 years ago?

    LOL!
    ….ah…i don’t git it.
    That must be why I stopped watching the TODAY show years ago –
    ah jist ain’t smart nuff fer the depth of it.

    Meredith aint got shi on Glenn!

    Beck did a masterful job of keeping control of this interview. Of course NBC starts out trying to bait him, it’s what their viewers want!

    I’ll be picking up the book soon, can’t wait to read it

    “Do U regret your hateful rhetoric?”

    What hateful rhetoric? Was my question right there hateful rhetoric?…How about that one?…And this one?

    Aren’t you really saying that all of my rhetoric is hateful by virtue of who I am and where I stand? That’s what I would want to say, if I were on the show as Beck.

    I would also want to say. Mom! I’m Glenn Beck!

  • las

    What’s really irritating about this is the narrative. Vieira creates the straw man narrative in short order. Beck swallows whole. What I don’t get is why Beck doesn’t just tear apart at their left-wing assumptions and turn every fraudulent question and assumption back on them. They’ve got to do this if Conservatives are ever going to hold their heads above the arsenic laced water.

    Now… as for Ablow…. this is the same Keith naive dhimmi Ablow who was on Eric Bolling’s show bragging how he was a big supporter of the Ground Zero Mosque. He employed every trope and sop to the First Amendment he could to show how magnanimous and concerned he was for America’s Constitutional values and Manhattan development (of all things)!

    Ablow and Beck and Ablow and Ground Zero Mosque = cognitive dissonance.

    Watch Ablow in action… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BV0N4iVRvJ8

    I think it’s high time someone came into the political ring swinging their fists. No more nice-nice. Just calling it as they see it, and tell people the exact truth with only enough sugar coating that they don’t shut down completely, like the Therapist was saying. Perhaps we have some like that already, but we need to unleash them.

    So its okay for the libs to smear and, name call, and do all manner of disgusting, vile, rhetoric, but if the Conservatives say ANYTHING AT ALL against their “anointed one” then it is hate-mongering! Unbelievable!!!

    WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!

    The mainstream (lame-stream) media ARE NOT YOUR FRIENDS! They LIE or otherwise TWIST THE TRUTH whenever they open their mouths!

    Meredith, you are a Hag. I capitalized it to show I mean that with all due respect. You never should have left The View, blurry as it may be because I never watched the show.

    I cannot stand Meredith, never have liked her, but Glenn should have just ripped her a new one.

    This is why I don’t think we can ever take the high road. Even after everyone agrees that Loughner was and is crazy we keep getting fed this BS meme.

    Hateful rhetoric didn’t cause any of this. Sitting back an taking it let’s them continue the false narrative.

    She tried hard and did paint Beck and Palin again as part of the problem that wasn’t really the problem. It’s incredible to watch them do this again and again.

  • Josie

    I think Beck and Ablow came off real well. Vieira wasn’t that bad. She asked some fair questions which I think was good for Beck to answer on that show. Imagine how many lefties heard him speak and explain himself in normal terms that would not have ever looked to hear from him before. I think this was a good thing.

  • Anonymous

    The left is so dishonest. Meredith says “Controversial talk show host…” Why can’t she just say “Popular talk show host…” Beck is not controversial, Beck is right. Beck is not trying to hide the truth from his audience like the Today Show does. He’s not the smartest about everything but he’s a very fast learner and I’m glad he is at least trying, fighting and even risking his life for truth & justice. It’s justice and only justice that makes the difference between America and all other countries. When America loses her justice (which is quickly eluding us thanks to Clinton/Obama and their ilk) it’s over, folks.

    From his TV show on Thursday, June 10, 2010. Beck rambles so it’s a little more difficult than usual to get the context of his remarks but I think this is a fair selection:

    I will stand against you and so will millions of others. We believe in something. You in the media and most in Washington don’t. The radicals that you and Washington have co-opted and brought in wearing sheep’s clothing — change the pose. You will get the ends.

    You’ve been using them? They believe in communism. They believe and have called for a revolution. You’re going to have to shoot them in the head. But warning, they may shoot you.

    They are dangerous because they believe. Karl Marx is their George Washington. You will never change their mind. And if they feel you have lied to them — they’re revolutionaries. Nancy Pelosi, those are the people you should be worried about.

  • Publius

    Now matter what Beck starts to say, “Ve-whora cuts in with, “But, but, but, but”

    Do you ever them incessantly contradict and cut off Dems like that? Why do they we can’t see through their agenda?
