Who Needs Facts? Glenn Beck's Dishonorable "Lie of the Year" Award

Besides Sarah ("Facts, what facts?") Palin, PolitiFact has selected Glenn Beck as runner-up in its first Lie of the Year contest, a dishonor Beck richly deserves.

Beck can barely open his mouth without distorting the truth or, even worse, making up "facts" from whole cloth. So it was no surprise that Beck's imaginary (and inflammatory) charges against a White House science advisor didn't pass the "common sense" test.

When it comes to Beck and the other Fox News blowhards, the best advice is to turn on your B.S. detector—you'll need it.

New Year's prediction: Beck's facility for fantasy will overwhelm him in the coming year and he will have that long overdue psychotic break.
