In their article titled "Hurricane Sarah," Politico stated....

According to a source familiar with the situation, she backed out of planned interviews with conservative talk-show hosts Sean Hannity and Mark Levin the morning she was scheduled to talk to them. And her multiple schedule changes so annoyed Glenn Beck that he finally decided not to have her on his radio or TV show to promote the book.

To which Beck said...

Both Mark Levin and Sean Hannity have also demanded a retraction from Politico for this bogus story.

That's a bit odd. I've always liked politico, thought they were mostly fair about things. I hope this doesn't become a regular thing with them.

That's why I hate these stories that begin with "according to a source"

Me too. If it would have been Media Matters or Bend Over MSNBC, it would have been "Oh geez, their they go again." Politico is a little different.

I never watch Beck so I had no knowledge of this. It is pretty sad, but with two weeks left until the elections the democrats and their allies are going to pull out every trick they can.

"Change you can believe in".

Exactly, but then again there is a humor to Hannity, Levin and Beck decrying a source for being dishonest, lol. They peddle this stuff all day every day. Really when you watch any of the self proclaimed "opinion" shows on any of the networks you're better off taking it as entertainment rather than for actual news.

I find it laughable that Glenn Beck of all people is complaining about somebody lying. Who's lying Politico or their source? This is what journalism has come to - he said/she said.

Of course you would find it laughable, just as most of the people on this forum find those that are obsessed with attacking Beck every single day laughable...

Hey, I'll bet Media Matters has published a half dozen new Beck attacks this morning... Why don't you run on over there and treat yourself, since you obviously aren't interested in Politico publishing a bogus attack story on Sarah Palin.

Or Beck flip flopped because it looks bad for his target audience who most likely worship the witch Palin. After all audience = money for Beck.

Just as honesty = kryptonite to liberal journalists like that punk at Politico.
