Uber-popular conservative commentator Glenn Beck has long been reviled by liberals. Now, however, it seems that his neighbors — fellow right-leaning pundits — are turning on him.
CNN’s Reliable Sources rounded up soundbites of popular conservative personalities railing against Fox News’ Beck, who recently theorized that Muslims are trying to bring about the apocalypse. For example, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough offered this analysis in a clip: “This guy is bad for the movement. This guy is losing it before our eyes.”
Reliable Sources guests Jennifer Rubin and David Frum, along with host Howard Kurtz, discuss the changing landscape of conservative punditry.
