Glenn Beck misremembers his CNN past

Blog ››› ››› ERIC BOEHLERT

He's barely out to door of CNN Headlines News and on his way to Fox, and already Beck is revising his CNNHN stint. In a Q&A with Time, Beck claims:

I also think they made me a better broadcaster because, believe me, I was the most well-researched show on CNN. They never let me get away with anything. At the time, it was like, come on guys, cut me some slack. But in retrospect, they made me better. I know what I know because they forced me to document it.

CNN made Beck document everything on that show. Except, of course, when CNN did not:

-Beck called "Comrade Clinton" a "liberal fascist," Edwards "a communist"

-CNN's Glenn Beck: "[C]ongressional game-playing by Nancy Pelosi will end up killing Americans"

-Beck mischaracterized Media Matters item quoting his interview with controversial evangelist Hagee

-Beck revived falsehood that Bill Clinton said, "We've got to slow down our economy" to fight global warming

-Beck inflated estimated ANWR oil production by nearly 7,000 percent

-CNN Headline News' Glenn Beck on Obama: "[T]his guy really is a Marxist"

-Glenn Beck, Debra Saunders falsely claimed Palin supports benefits for same-sex partners of state employees
