Beck is the best

A CNN host who loves Israel

bY Gary Rosenblatt is editor and publisher of The Jewish Week of New York.

Pro-Israel critics of the media, and particularly of CNN, should check out “The Glenn Beck Program” to give their high blood pressure a respite.

Beck, 42 and host of what is considered the fastest-growing TV show in cable news, can make Bibi Netanyahu look like a dove. The baby-faced former Top 40 radio disc jockey has been known to describe Saudi Arabian leaders as “nut jobs” and “dirt bags” and says that if America doesn’t support and protect Israel, “we will lose our only strategic ally in the Mideast and we will lose our souls.”

Yes, Beck, an admitted former alcoholic and drug addict, is now a devout Christian who believes in an Armageddon in which millions will die. He also believes in God’s love for Israel, and he is not shy about discussing his own support for the Jewish state on his hour-long show that airs nightly at 7 p.m. on CNN Headline News, perhaps positioned to counter the success of Fox’s right-wing programming.

  1. Is he the dork that told Ayaan Hirsi Ali that ‘she wouldn’t die of natural causes’?
    That was the sickest, most repugnant remark I’ve ever heard on TV. Are you sure he’s a former addict?
