It happened during a commercial break but there’s no reason to doubt Beck’s telling the truth. The last time this tool was on, Megyn Kelly had to cut his mike to be able to speak over him. In fact, every time he’s on Fox, it turns into a trainwreck of filibustering and guests talking over each other. I understand why they continue to book him — angering the host is great for ratings — but why, given his astounding Edwards-esque unctuousness, does ACORN continue to send him as their rep? It’s practically an exercise in self-sabotage. I’m sitting here numb with horror at the possibility that he might be the most likable guy they have.
I split the clip in two. If you want the full interview, watch both. If all you want is Beck’s indignation at being accused of racial phobia, stick with number two.
