Glen Beck’s apology

Glen Beck has apologized for his years of relentless attacks on President Obama. Reflecting on his time as incendiary Fox News host, Beck confessed, “I think I played a role unfortunately in helping to tear the country apart.” That’s an understatement. Beck’s “greatest hit” included describing President Obama as a ‘racist’ and Marxist with a deep-seated hatred for white people.

Beck’s feverish conspiracy theories and relentless, racially tinged attacks didn’t just rile people up, they outright misinformed them. Thanks Glen, for admitting your mistakes.

Ok, so when is the Tea Party going to come clean about the disruptions they’ve caused in the country, economy and government over the past five years that have dominated American politics and divided the nation?

Is this ‘cartoon existence’ really living?

As I was binge watching the last season of “The Blacklist”, I was surprised it only had 19 episodes. What was stranger was a few minutes into the 19th episode they cut in with cast and crew telling us that they were in the middle of filming when COVID-19 restrictions kicked in. After making sure to tell us to be safe and other platitudes, they then went back to the show, but half of it was cartoon and the other half live action.
