When Glenn Beck says you have no credibility…

The big surprise in the NPR “sting” was not that James O’Keefe selectively edited footage of NPR executives. Anyone surprised by that hasn’t been paying attention.

It’s that Glenn Beck’s The Blaze website exposed the selective editing. When Glenn Beck questions your credibility, you are in trouble:

“The problem with this whole thing is does James O’Keefe have enough credibility to continue to do” undercover video journalism? Beck asked his listeners. That kind of journalism, he said, is “just really not something that you necessarily want to get into. But if you do it, you damn well better not lie on the tape. You don’t now take what you have and edit something to make them say something that they didn’t say. I mean, you have no credibility then.”

Lest anyone think Beck is turning a new leaf, he brought on a full load of crazy Monday, suggesting that the disaster in Japan was a message from God:

“I’m not saying God is causing earthquakes – well I’m not not saying that either!”

“What God does is God’s business,” Beck continued. “But I’ll tell you this…there’s a message being sent. And that is, ‘Hey you know that stuff we’re doing? Not really working out real well. Maybe we should stop doing some of it.’ I’m just saying.”

And, suddenly, all is right with the world.
