Beck Lie Busted by the National Archives

I don’t believe anything Glenn Beck says because of the little lies he gets caught telling. If he lies about little things, how can I believe him about big things? I take that approach toward most people, so why would I omit Beck?

The best-known example is when Barbara Walters and Whoopi Goldberg busted Beck for making up a story which cast them in a negative light. I was almost, but not quite, embarrassed for him as the ladies had him absolutely cornered.

During his 8/28 rally, he said, “I went to the National Archives, and I held the first inaugural address written in his own hand by George Washington.”

The Archives spokesperson says Beck didn’t lay a finger on any precious documents. “Those kinds of treasures are only handled by specially trained archival staff.”

And Glenn ain’t one.

Makes you wonder about those endearing stories he tells about his kids.

Do you think those conversations actually take place? I kinda doubt it.

He didn’t need to make that story up about the National Archives. It wasn’t necessary. But he can’t resist exaggerating for dramatic effect. My personal feeling is that the truth is always good enough.

The only remaining question is: why am I so doggone obsessed with this guy?
