Media Matters: Outrageous Beck Opens Mouth Again
Media Matters - Recent CNN hire Beck on Cindy Sheehan: "That's a pretty big prostitute": "On the January 10 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, Glenn Beck called anti-war protester Cindy Sheehan 'a pretty big prostitute,' later amending, at the behest of his executive producer, Steve 'Stu' Burguiere, that 'tragedy pimp' would be 'the most accurate description.'
Beck referenced Sheehan during what he called a 'search for the biggest prostitute,' which, he said, sought to answer the question, 'Who'll do anything for power or money?' The game initially pitted former Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss against Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean, Sen. John Kerry (D-MA), and suspended Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Terrell Owens.
Beck, who claims that his radio show is 'ranked as the 3rd most listened to talk show in America among Adults 25-54,' was recently hired to host his own program on CNN Headline News."
