Beck Watch: Mindless, Incoherent, Pathetic

I thought Glenn Beck was finally starting to make sense when he told Katie Couric today that John McCain “would have been worse for the country than Barack Obama.” Needless to say, some on the right weren’t as pleased as I was. Conservative radio host Mark Levin said the claim was “mindless” and “incoherent.” He added, “It may be entertaining, but from my perspective, it’s not. It’s pathetic.”

MSNBC morning host Joe Scarborough joined the right-wing anger. “You cannot preach hatred. You cannot say the president is racist,” he said. Are conservatives finally getting sick of Glenn Beck?

REAL QUICK, REAL URGENT

Minority rule, corruption, disinformation, attacks on those who dare tell the truth: There is a direct line from what's happening in Russia and Ukraine to what's happening here at home. And that's what MoJo's Monika Bauerlein writes about in "Their Fight Is Our Fight" to unpack the information war we find ourselves in and share a few examples to show why the power of independent, reader-supported journalism is such a threat to authoritarians.

Corrupt leaders the world over can (and will) try to shut down the truth, but when the truth has millions of people on its side, you can't keep it down for good. And there's no more powerful or urgent argument for your support of Mother Jones' journalism right now than that. We need to raise about $450,000 to hit our online fundraising budget in these next few months, so please read more from Monika and pitch in if you can.
