White House Goes After Glenn Beck; Here's some advice: Turn off the Damn TV Already!

Now this is pretty low stuff even for this White House. They are going point-by-point against Glenn Beck to counter "lies."

Last night Fox News continued its disregard for the facts in an attempt to smear the Administration's efforts to win the Olympics for the United States. In the past, hosting the Olympics has been a source of pride and unity for the country, but once again Fox News' Glenn Beck program has shown that nothing is worthy of respect if it can be used as part of a partisan attack to boost ratings.

This is from the official White House blog to a news organization in the US. In other words the White House is personally going after a TV show for " spreading lies." They have to understand that their office is supposed to be far above such nonsense. This is the White House not the Berkeley City Council.

The sad part is they have just validated everything Beck stands for by personally attacking his so-called "disregard for facts." Are they so scared by some guy on a TV channel that they have to personally attack him on their official blog? Everyone knows that Beck is going to run with this story for days. If you hate the man so much why are they giving him such perfect ammo?

No wonder Putin thinks these clowns are a joke. No wonder the Iranians fired off a bunch of missiles in response Obama's "harsh words." No wonder North Korea tested another nuke. No wonder Sarkozy scoffs at Obama on pressuring Iran. No wonder the Israelis think they will have to go it alone against Iranian nuclear weapons. These people look like they care more about what is happening at Fox News instead of doing everything they can to prevent one UN member nation from wiping another off the face of the earth.

Here is a word of advice for every staffer at the White House. Change the channel already to CNN or MSNBC or some other sycophantic news source. I mean they are actually tingling for your boss on those channels.

Actually better yet turn off the damn TV and remember that you are sitting at the same desks of the people that preserved the Union and freed the slaves, that saved the entire free world from Nazism, and prevented a global thermal nuclear war with the Soviet Union.

Don't sully these desks with your asinine BS about some guy on some cable news channel. This office used to be above that. I guess they can no longer make that claim.
