Who would have thought that in the Sherrod fiasco Glenn Beck would come out on top?  Whatever one thinks of Beck’s style, his beliefs and his program, he acted carefully and responsibly in this matter.  On his radio program, Beck said the following:

We didn’t rush to condemn her. This is another seemingly “redistribution of wealth” woman — who I would bet that I vehemently disagree with on probably everything. But she asked for the rest of the tape to be heard, the farmers in the story backed her up. It was a turning point story. We defended her and said her side of the story demanded to be heard — because context matters.

The TV talk show host- detested by liberals and leftists-went on to explain that it was the Obama administration that acted precipitously by firing her, without waiting to see the entire video or questioning Sherrod about it.

Beck quoted what USDA official Cheryl Cook had told Sherrod: “They want you to pull over to the side of the road and do it because you’re going to be on Glenn Beck tonight.”  But Beck told his audience on Thursday night that he had had no plans to broadcast the video, or for that matter, report on it until he had more information.  He went to on actually praise her for having a “pivot point” that allowed her to transcend the racial paradigm which at one point in her life she may have followed; not surprising, given the Klan murder of her own father.
