As Glenn Beck's finale show on Fox News draws near, the folks at George Soros' progressive Media Matters are tickled pink. So much so in fact, they even hosted a soiree to celebrate their victory. The group gives themselves a hearty pat on the back and all the kudos for "getting Glenn off the air" by claiming to have pressured advertisers into pulling out of Beck's time-slot.
Huffington Post's Zach Carter interviewed various Media Matterites at the event, many of whom said now that Beck is "gone" they'll be ever-vigilant of the remaining "right wing media nuts" out there -- which, according to one attendee, constitutes the entire Fox News network. Ironic, considering a recent UCLA study actually puts Fox News left of center.
Regarding Beck's plans for the future, another guest at the event believes Beck should "look into the internet" as it provides a large audience of people interested in "baseless conspiracy theories." Speaking of conspiracies -- Carter pointed out to the guest that George Soros, who funds Media Matters, had been shorting Beck on Intrade. "How is that not market manipulation?" Carter asked. Naturally, the question was dodged.
The group that was formed out of a paranoid belief in a right-wing media "conspiracy" doesn't believe they, themselves, are conspiracy theorists. Priceless.
