A few weeks ago, Touré did a “Carnac the Magnificent” bit on MSNBC’s “The Cycle” that Glenn Beck and his radio co-hosts, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere declared to be “the worst TV bit ever.” The bit was so bad, according to Beck and crew, that it was the sort of thing that literally destroys networks and was proof that the people involved were so desperate to hold on to their jobs that they didn’t even have the courage to take a stand and refuse to embarrass themselves on national television.
“Tell me how you fix a network after that,” Beck said of the MSNBC bit. “That network is worth nothing afterwards because you have to completely blow it up.”
That was the position Beck, Grey, and Burguiere held on January 31, 2014 … but that was before they learned that George Soros had reportedly been attacked by his ex-girlfriend; a story which has brought nothing but delight to Beck, so much so that last night’s television broadcast featured this:
That is Gray dressed as Soros and Burgiere in drag as his ex-girlfriend being interviewed by Beck in a segment that was not at all embarrassingly painful to watch:
The good news is that this is not the sort of pathetic segment that will destroy Beck’s network because, heck, if ten minutes of Beck playing with Wizard of Oz dolls can’t do it, nothing can.
