Thank You, Greta

We salute Fox News program host, Greta Van Susteren, for her criticism of Glenn Beck's theatrics at the Lincoln Memorial on the Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King's "Dream" speech, August 28, 1963. She blogged:

Yes he has a First Amendment right to do it...but what about the wisdom of it? Glenn should move his event. It does not help heal the country on so many fronts if we poke a stick in eyes."

She went on to note, as we have, this situation parallels the Mosque at Ground Zero. Clearly in both instances, the Mosque sponsors and Beck have the constitutional right to do what they are doing, but what they are doing is so wrong.

While both Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck are employed by Fox News, Fox News is not sponsoring nor is involved with the staging of Glenn Beck's Washington rally. It would have been helpful if Fox had gone  "on the record" to detach themselves from this charade. Regardless, they will be seen as responsible for anything that might go wrong with this rally. The rally is not sanctioned by nor planned by any factions of the tea party movement. This belongs to Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin, two people those looking toward a more conservative, rational society would do well to separate from the movement immediately.
