Howard Kurtz: Beck’s Smearing of Malia Obama ‘Really Low Blow’

June 3, 2010

(ChattahBox)—Glenn Beck’s half-hearted apologies for his despicable mocking of President Obama’s 11-year-old daughter are not enough to take the stink away. Just days after taking up with half-term governor Sarah Palin, as he condemned attacking the families of political figures, Beck cruelly mocked Malia’s voice on his radio show, questioning the level of her education, implying she was illiterate, while he also injected race into the mix. It was perhaps one of the scummiest performances from a talk radio host. Now, Howard Kurtz, CNN contributor and writer for the Washington Post is calling Beck’s cruel attack of an 11-year-old girl “a really low blow.”

Kurtz made his remarks condemning Fox News’ Glenn Beck, during an appearance on CBS’s Inside Edition, in which he slammed Beck for his hypocrisy:

KURTZ: “What was really troubling about Glenn Beck’s jokes here, was that he not only dragged Malia Obama into this controversy, he mocked this young girl’s voice. He made her sound like she was barely literate.”

KURTZ: “This was a really low blow on Glenn Beck’s part to make fun of an 11-year- old girl — to drag her into the political crossfire when he himself said that that’s something that should never be done with kids”

This is nothing new for Beck. He just recently attacked Michelle Obama’s appearance and devoted an entire Fox News show to smearing President Obama’s dead mother.

    Remember, Faux News caters to people with below-average IQs (down to “moron grade,” in some cases, apparently). Glenn Beck is the perfect entertainment for stupid people who want to remain ignorant.
