Time's Joe Klein: "Prominent Republicans" Have Complained to Murdoch, Ailes About Beck

Blog ››› ››› ERIC BOEHLERT

Noting that conservative pundit Bill Kristol has called out Glenn Beck for his Egypt "hysteria," Time's Joe Klein posted this on the magazine's blog today [emphasis added]:

This is not unimportant. Kristol lies very close to the throbbing heart of the Fox News sensibility. And I've heard, from more than a couple of conservative sources, that prominent Republicans have approached Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes about the potential embarrassment that the paranoid-messianic rodeo clown may bring upon their brand. The speculation is that Beck is on thin ice. His ratings are dropping, too--which, in the end, is a good part of what this is all about. But I wouldn't be surprised if we saw a mirror-Olbermann situation soon.
