The hits just keep on coming. In a follow-up post to my Glen Beck-Malia Obama story, Beck issued an apology for dragging eleven year old Malia Obama into a political debate regarding the president’s handling of the BP oil crisis:
(sic)… “there is absolutely no excuse or reason to ever, ever, ever, ever even come close to the line of dragging somebody’s family into the debate. I’ve never done it. I’ve never done it until last Friday.”
Media Matters has uncovered evidence to the contrary. On several occasions dating back to 2009, Beck routinely harangued and smeared Obama, as well as members of his immediate family.
