Glenn Beck’s Way to Become FNC’s Top Rated? A Cheney Hunting Trip

FNC’s Glenn Beck sat down for a Q&A with EW.com’s Hollywood Insider and he clearly shows who, among the Fox News hosts, has the best sense of humor:

Q: Glenn Beck trails only The O’Reilly Factor and Hannity in the cable news ratings. What should you do right now to take both of them down and rocket yourself to No. 1?

Beck: I do have a call in to Dick Cheney to take them hunting.

Q: Let’s talk about the famous April 13 fainting, when a guest passed out while shaking your hand. Were you aware that a mere touch from you could put a man right to sleep?

Beck: Usually it’s my voice, my topics, my looks, my general presence. But the handshake? No, I wasn’t. I felt like Spock. It was good.

Q: Here’s what Jon Stewart said about you: “Finally, a guy who says what people who aren’t thinking are thinking.” What do you think he meant by that?

Beck: Isn’t it time that those people have a voice? I am their king.
