Glenn Beck Exposes Obama Advisor Van Jones

Unsurprisingly, some folks have a problem with this, such as the LA Times

Glenn Beck used his popular Fox News show this afternoon to attack the background of Van Jones, a White House environmental advisor who co-founded an African American political advocacy group that organized an advertising boycott of his program.

During his 2 p.m. PDT show, Beck did not address the boycott spearheaded by Color of Change to protest the talk show host’s remark last month that he believes President Obama is “a racist.”

Isn’t it wonderful that an organization directly linked to an Obama advisor, who is paid by the federal government, is assaulting the Free Speech rights of a private citizen.

Instead, he spent a large share of his program suggesting that Jones, who co-founded Color of Change in 2005, is a radical. Jones now serves as a special advisor for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation at the White House Council on Environmental Quality.

During a six-minute biographical profile, set to ominous music, Beck said Jones was twice arrested for political protests and has described himself as a “rowdy black nationalist.” The talk show host cast the piece as part of a broader examination of Obama’s “czars,” special advisers to the president who “don’t answer to anybody.”

Whew! Now that is a Tom Sawyer worthy whitewashing of what the Beck piece actually showed. Unfortunately for the LA Times, there is this pesky Internet thing, which allows people to actually see the piece

You decide. Is Van Jones a massive radical?
