Glenn Beck is hosting an event at his network headquarters in Texas this weekend to promote the release of his latest book, “Liars: How Progressives Exploit Our Fears for Power and Control,” and his good friend David Barton will be on hand, offering private tours of various historical artifacts that Beck and others have collected that have been put on display for the event.
Beck brought Barton onto his radio program today to promote the event by spreading his latest bogus claim that the United States put its own soldiers in danger by specifically warning Japanese civilians which cities we were going to bomb before dropping atomic weapons during World War II.
During the conversation, Beck once again falsely claimed that Barton earned his doctorate in education.
“You have your doctorate, don’t you?” Beck asked Barton.
“That’s what they claim,” Barton replied. “I’ve got papers for it.”
Perhaps realizing that “that’s what they claim” is a rather odd answer to a simple yes or no question, Beck sought to clarify.
“You have your doctorate in education,” he reiterated.
“Yeah, that’s right,” Barton responded.
“So he’s a doctor of education,” Beck stated. “David has an actual doctorate.”
Barton, of course, does not have a doctorate in education, as we noted earlier this year when he somewhat confusingly admitted that he doesn’t have a Ph.D. In fact, his own bio reports that he merely “holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Oral Roberts University and an Honorary Doctorate of Letters from Pensacola Christian College.”
