Misinforming the Public: Beck Wins National Dishonor as 'Misinformer of the Year'

He's a media clown, a shallow and ill-informed buffoon trapped in a maze of bad ideas.

We're speaking of Glenn Beck, the Fox News windbag who pontificates daily on the great issues of the day. Unfortunately for America, Beck is a consistent source exaggeration, hyperbole, misinformation and plain ole lies.

So it's no wonder than Beck has won this year's Misinformer of the Year award from Media Matters.

There was stiff competition for the award, of course, much of it also on Fox News, the home of Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, and a number of other blowhards. But Beck is far and away the silliest and least coherent of the Fox crew, always ready and willing to twist the facts to suit his preconceived agenda.

As the saying goes, never lets the facts stand in the way of a good story. In a sentence, that is Beck's method.

Thankfully, Media Matters has called Beck on his shabby relations to the truth. Check out the video here.
