Glenn Beck ordered to reveal sources for Marathon-bombing stories that implicated a Saudi national

Politico reports on a judge's ruling in a defamation lawsuit against the radio host for stories in which he linked a Saudi student to the Marathon bombings - one of which injured him - even after federal officials cleared him.

Good. Good. Good. Good. Good.

Too many people on traditional and social media have been relying on victims of defamation not having the money or the stomach to sue. These asinine accusations cause real pain. Glad that asshat Beck finally picked the wrong one. I only wish the reddit idiots who wrongly accused that Rhode Island student whose family had to suffer so much would be held liable.

And it couldn't happen to a more vile fake journalist

I hope he's found to have fabricated the sources.

That wouldn't cost him all his audience (they are not very bright, and have been fed false information about the world and reasoning for years), but might wipe him out financially.

The big gold pushers are almost always selling it or newsletters/blogs/sites, or doing paid promotions, not usually stacking it themselves.

There is secondary enthusiast chatter in forums (most of whom can afford just a small pittance or gold, but spend countless hours chatting about the topic), with shills among them, but they're not the ones really pushing gold.

I was going to make an off-handed comment about Beck's "Girl", and now I'm down a rabbit hole figuring out if it's "cyanide" or "sun-eyed". Ugh.

edit - double ugh...someone put "my son a girl" on the Youtube vid and now I can't unhear that.

Anyway, carry on...

Personally, I sing "cyanide

Personally, I sing "cyanide girl" because I wouldn't put it past Beck to be cheeky like that.

The more I'm reading, the more points to "cyanide". I mean, it makes more sense in concert with "...make her die, take her where her soul belongs". Reading the lyrics, it's more akin to Nirvana's "Polly" than anything. He purposely left the lyrics as "hey, my ____ girl" in the liner notes.

Glenn Beck's source?

Probably the source of most of his statements, deep from within his anal cavity.

Beck is a conservative historian. He has a blackboard.

He writes what appears to be dyslectic hostage letters on live TV. He can dress up as a Colonial times citizen. He can fake cry. He can get aging, once thoughtful white people to believe the apocalypse is near or that secret Muslim Obama is hiding under your bed. He is extremely jealous of Donald Trump. He is spending millions to defend himself. Life is good.

Given recent incidents, it will be interesting to see if the person(s) providing investigative and possibly classified information is punished.

I feel pretty confident that his "source" was some random idiot on Reddit. There was all kinds of speculation and a amateur photo analysis going on the week after the bombing. I recall seeing the same fellow pointed out as "suspect" by a few posters before the FBI released information about the Tsarnaevs.

One is forced to wonder

At what point will Beck's lunatic ravings become so bad that even the voices in his head will publicly disavow him?
