Numerous media conservatives have touted a discredited post on the Media Research Center's NewsBusters weblog to baselessly claim that Hillary Clinton recorded her announcement video launching her presidential bid months prior to actually announcing. Even though the post was later updated to add that a reporter "whom I respect informs me that video was produced last week in DC," hosts such as Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity touted the NewsBusters post to support the claim.
On his CNN Headline News program, Glenn Beck repeated his comparison of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairman Howard Dean and again mocked men with Muslim names.

On his radio show, Beck repeatedly compared Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to Howard Dean, at one point exclaiming, "This guy is Howard frickin' Dean." On his CNN show, Beck previously said that Ahmadinejad "sounded ... a lot like Michael Moore" in a letter Ahmadinejad wrote to President Bush.
On his radio show, Glenn Beck claimed that one reason different races are "afraid to hang out with each other" is that "we're afraid ... somebody's gonna sic the NAACP on us." Beck also urged people to "drop the Ebonics crap" because, he said, "[t]here's times that I've gotten into conversation with people, and I don't know what they're saying to me ... and I don't wanna say, 'What the hell are you even talking about?' ... Let's speak the same language." He also stated that "what I say is not racist."
