On the February 28 edition of his CNN Headline News program, Glenn Beck once again made sexually suggestive comments toward a woman when he hosted US Weekly's Dina Sansing to discuss racy photographs of American Idol contestant Antonella Barba. After Beck claimed that "[y]ou can't take stupid photos and expect those to be ... locked away forever," Sansing responded that it was "possibly" true and that "it depends." As the weblog Crooks and Liars noted, Beck then asked: "Dina, I've got some time and a camera. Why don't you stop by?" Sansing did not respond and, after several seconds of silence, Beck stated: "No? OK." As Media Matters for America has noted (here, here, and here), in each of the first three episodes of his CNN Headline News show in May 2006, Beck made sexually suggestive comments to CNN Headline News anchor Erica Hill, who was then giving daily news updates on Beck's show. Hill no longer appears on Beck's program.
Then yesterday, Beck was given the day's "Worst Person" award by fellow cable talker Keith Olbermann on MSNBC's "Countdown with Keith Olbermann." He earned it over a middle school principal who was arrested for selling meth and was caught doing so in his office, while doing the drug himself, while naked and watching gay porn, with sex toys on his desk. Watch Olbermann's prolonged take on it below:
