Glenn Beck Tries to Link George Soros To WikiLeaks (VIDEO)

During Glenn Beck's weekly appearance on 'The O'Reilly Factor' (weekdays, 8 PM ET on Fox News), the two Fox News hosts discussed the latest cache of WikiLeaks documents, and the organization's controversial leader Julian Assange.

So how long did it take before Beck tried to tie Assange to George Soros, who Beck has been spending the last month railing against as the nefarious 'puppet master'? Not long at all.

"Assange is a guy who loves to have just all open society," Beck said near the beginning of the segment. "Sound familiar, 'open society,' Beck repeated, before making the point that Soros is chairman of a foundation called the Open Society Institute.

Then Beck added the Assange is represented by a lawyer who also does pro-bono work for the Open Society Institute.

Per usual, O'Reilly was fairly skeptical of Beck's conspiracy theories, although the two hosts were united in their belief that Soros represents a danger to society.

Perhaps the most disappointing thing about the segment was that Beck and O'Reilly didn't have nearly as much fun pronouncing Assange's perfect super-villain last name as other cable news figures have been lately.
