Glenn Beck called a Fox News headline about gas prices "radically wrong," and the network changed its angle right as he was talking about its coverage.

Beck has been devoting a lot of attention to the Federal Reserve, which he blames for the recent rise in the price of staples such as gas and food. He said the media were getting the story wrong, focusing on oil companies instead of the Fed for the spike in gas. He pointed to Fox News, which had a story titled, "Oil Companies To Reveal Record Profits Amid Gas Rise Spike."

"Even fox news...is getting this story radically wrong," he said. "...The only talking point on this should be the Fed, because the Fed is what's doing it to gas, what's doing it to oil, what's doing it...to everything."

As he was speaking, his co-host noticed that Fox News was running a different headline on an oil story: "Oil Companies Aren't The Ones Raising Gas Prices."

"Thank God," Beck said.
