Letter: Sarah, Glenn Uninformed

Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck’s voices came over the car radio recently as I was driving to the Valley. Sarah said, “Glenn, I’m glad you’re investigating the Federal Reserve because no one else is!” Beck replied, “I’m going to push for a windfall profit tax on the Federal Reserve.” If Beck had done his research on this topic, which he evidently knew nothing about, he would have discovered that any profit that the Federal Reserve makes goes to the U.S. Treasury. This is typical of the misinformation, half-truths, tall tales and just plain flat-out lies that Beck, Hannity and other talk show hosts on Fox News feed to the public on a regular basis/Larry L. Whitesitt, Fairfield, letter to SR. More here.

Question: Do you listen to talk radio?
