Radio callers more than bloggers and any participant in visual media thrive on anonymity. But this has led to a reality where it's unknown how much is fabricated in order to fit a certain agenda, be it political or merely to entertain.
Mr. Beck, I understand it is your contention that "only hookers go to Planned Parenthood." There must be a lot of hookers out here.
The simultaneous rise and fall of Beck and Palin stand as remarkable tales of Fox News failures, as well as for the radical, Obama-hating media movement they've helped champion on cable TV.
Neither Fox News nor Beck are saying exactly why the two decided to break up this week. But a simple lesson in TV Economics 101 would probably explain it.

Political battles are made easier when at least some of your opponents are clueless, careless, and, well, frankly creepy. So this morning my thanks go out to Glenn Beck.
Many Americans are angry about the attack on our living standards and basic rights by the right-wing forces around the country -- of which the Maine mural controversy is but a small part. It's time for Obama to take a stand.
It seems obvious, but in order to be taken seriously, politicians have to be, you know, serious. Not just in terms of personality or behavior, but primarily in terms of policy and lawmaking.
Lawrence O'Donnell spent an entire segment criticizing his show's part-owner, General Electric, for paying no income taxes on over $5B of profits in 2010. Now, that is integrity writ-large.
