Which Two Mainstream Political Reporters Does Glenn Beck Find ‘Fantastic and Fair’?

In a “60 second interview” with Capital New York, The Blaze founder and conservative talk show host Glenn Beck was asked if any media figures might be surprised to learn that he was a fan of theirs. Beck revealed two political reporters whose work he says he enjoys—while being careful to note that he’s no fan of the outlets they work for.

“What’s the one news publication or TV show people might be most surprised to learn you’re a fan of?” Capital New York asked Beck.

“While it pains me to say it given their outlets, I think Jake Tapper and Mark Leibovich are fantastic and fair,” Beck replied.

New York Times reporter Mark Leibovich is the author of the tell-all book This Town, about the nexus of politics and media in Washington D.C. Jake Tapper is the host of The Lead on CNN.

Beck also said he was a fan of the late Desi Arnaz for inventing the three camera shoot.
