Beck Accuses NYT of Hypocrisy in Slams at Him

Glenn Beck contends that The New York Times should look at its own coverage before it accuses him of opining gloom and doom. Responding Monday to an article speculating that Fox News would dismiss Beck soon, he noted during his radio and his TV show that, while the Times and other media outlets are calling his show too pessimistic, they are reporting stories with the same negative tones.

Glenn Beck, NYT, New York Times“The New York Times and others saw no irony in their ‘Mr. Gloomy Pants’ critique while at the same time they would run these stories and provide no real insight or answers to these major catastrophes,” Beck said on his radio program.

Among the accusations, the Times said Beck doesn’t really believe his God references and his stance against nonviolence. Beck also noted that the Times equates his audience with “illiterate zombies,” who listen only because they don’t realize he is “faking it.” Beck also commented on the newspaper making light of his ratings.

“It was strange because it was only a CBS News estimate of the 8/28 crowd of 87,000 people, away from the actual audience size that the Times themselves used, to declare that I was a ratings phenomena, just two years before,” Beck said. “Isn’t that weird?

“I’ve decided that the media and the American left have become nothing more than a shampoo label and should be disregarded as we disregard most shampoo labels because they all say the same thing: Lather, rinse, repeat – and that’s all they do,” he continued. “And that’s why, in the end, they will fail.”
