Glenn Beck Goes Off on Van Jones: “Do You Think I Want To Get on the Air Every Night and Tell You This Stuff”

Tonight on his show, Glenn Beck went off again on Van Jones, the special adviser for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation at the White House Council on Environmental Quality. Four years ago, Jones co-founded ColorofChange.org, the group that launched an ad boycott of Beck’s show earlier this summer.

Beck questioned whether the White House fully vetted Jones before appointing him to the post, then wondered where the other media are:

“Hey! ABC, NBC… well I know where NBC is… CBS where the hell are ya? CNN where are ya?”

By the way, Beck’s 5pmET show was the second most-watched cable news show in Total Viewers and the A25-54 demo yesterday, behind “The O’Reilly Factor.”
