Glenn Beck Tries To Explain His Irrational Crusade Against Google

As Steven Taylor noted the other day, Glenn Beck has somehow concluded that Google is part of some vast worldwide conspiracy and is urging his viewers to boycott it. Last night, he appeared on Bill O’Reilly’s show and talked about it some more:

As is often the case when Beck goes off on one of his crazy rants, even Bill O doesn’t appear to believe him.

    Um, Doug, I don’t usually defend Glenn Beck, but I feel compelled to do so in this instance…He specifically says NOT to boycott Google, that he doesn’t believe in boycotts. I watched that particular Beck episode, in fact, I tivoed it, because I wanted to see exactly what the beef was all about. He is putting sunlight on the company and the people at the top of the company and exactly how deeply in bed they are with the American government, specifically the US State Department. As a consumer, I want to know this information, and I sure as hell can’t count on the main stream media to give this information to me. I’m appreciative of the fact that Glenn Beck’s “operatives” were able to uncover this information. I think you are misleading when you state that he is encouraging a boycott when he specifically has stated that he is merely exposing them to sunlight. Google did not hide from this information once it was exposed, they are truly proud of what they did.

    Kinda like how worried he was about how the telecom companies were in bed with the Bush administration warrantless wire tapping program.

    Oh wait….

    I think Beck is yanking people’s chains at this point.
