Glenn Beck Praises Anderson Cooper (VIDEO)

While trashing CNN's debate coverage on his Tuesday radio show, Glenn Beck revealed a surprising fact: he's a big Anderson Cooper fan.

Beck and his co-hosts agreed that John King was a terrible moderator of the debate. Beck said that the answer to any problems CNN might have would be to fire everyone on the network. But then he caught himself.

I would keep Anderson Cooper," he said. "Wolf [Blitzer] and Anderson Cooper."

Later, while still talking about the debate, Beck said, “I believe Anderson Cooper was probably saying, ‘why is he hosting this...just put me on for nine straight hours. Please. Just put me on for nine hours,’ That’s the easiest thing you can do to fix that network. Just put Anderson still won’t beat O’Reilly, but it will be a lot better.”
