Glenn Beck is not making many friends in high profile places these days. Yesterday Cokie Roberts was quoted calling him “worse than a clown. He’s more like a terrorist.” Today comes word that Avatar director James Cameron does not think terribly highly of the Fox News powerhouse, either. To put it mildly. This from the Hollywood Reporter from a “lashing” Cameron gave Beck during a press conference Tuesday:
“Glenn Beck is a fucking asshole. I’ve met him. He called me the anti-Christ and not about ‘Avatar.’ He hadn’t even seen ‘Avatar’ yet. I don’t know if he has seen it … I think, you know what, he may or may not be an asshole, but he certainly is dangerous, and I’d love to have a dialogue with him … He’s dangerous because his ideas are poisonous … I couldn’t believe when he was on CNN. I thought, what happened to CNN? Who is this guy? Who is this madman? And then of course he wound up on Fox News, which is where he belongs, I guess.”
Alas, I suspect the chances of Beck inviting Cameron on his show are fairly slim, though it would certainly be awesome. One suspects the 3-D glasses wouldn’t even be necessary.
Update: We hear Beck will address the comments on his FNC show tonight.
