In an article on Forbes.com today, Robert Lenzner reported on comments by George Soros portraying Glenn Beck as as "a throwback to the wild and crazy radical elements" (Lenzner's paraphrase). But then Lenzner added his own thoughts on Beck, characterizing him as a liar who's "falsely vilifying Soros publicly" and "trying to stir up public hatred of Soros."
On his radio show this morning, Beck responded to both Soros and Lenzner, telling Soros to "stop your lies" and challenging Lenzner to "back it up!":
I take great personal offense at New Yorker writer Hendrik Hertzberg (whom I otherwise admire for his acute political commentary) for charging this week that George Soros "made and makes his billions in the amoral world of stock and currency speculation."
"Amoral?" as in lacking in a moral sensibility or not caring about right and wrong?
Update: Beck amplified his response to Soros on the 5pm TV show. And he issued a strong demand to Forbes.
