The relationship between Glenn Beck and Andrew Breitbart, at least according to some recent statements by the latter, doesn’t appear to be all rainbows and unicorns lately. But if some Sherrod-related wounds may still need nursing, Beck showed no sign of animosity tonight. Defending Breitbart’s appearance on Martin Bashir‘s MSNBC show yesterday, Beck called him a “absolutely fearless,” decrying Bashir’s attempt to paint him as racist.
Bashir, you will recall, asked Breitbart about a photo of President Barack Obama as a monkey that was passed around among some Republican circles in California, to which Breitbart replied, “it’s deplorable, but what do I have to do with it?” Beck could barely wait to defend Breitbart and praise his response to Bashir’s question. “Breitbart is absolutely fearless,” Beck said, telling O’Reilly, “he’s a little bit like you– he walks right into the lion’s den.”
O’Reilly appeared a little skeptical of even trying to talk to the left– “you don’t really convert many people over there”– but expressed similar outrage that Bashir would ask about something so thoroughly unrelated. “This goes to trying to humiliate conservatives,” he noted, with the two concluding that this is yet another sign that MSNBC is in its final days. “This is why I think… this whole thing is just not going to stand,” Beck noted, asking, “MSNBC, how long are they statying in business like that?”
