Glenn Beck Debunks Conspiracy Theories Surrounding Fish and Bird Deaths (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Jan 7th 2011 4:20PM
Glenn Beck (weekdays, 5PM ET on Fox News) has thrown cold water on the chatter that secret government activity, end-times prophecies, or something else sinister resulted in thousands of bird and fish deaths in Arkansas over the past week.

According to Beck, these conspiracy theories have popped up because the media hasn't done a good job of putting the mass animal deaths into proper context.

"I spent all of 30 seconds Googling this story and suddenly there is a little context," Beck explained. "A little bit of history. 5,600 stories of history to be exact ... Way back in the time machine of 2004 millions of fish washed up in Maryland ... "

Beck then cited other examples of fish and bird deaths before concluding these events are actually fairly commonplace, and don't suggest anything out of the ordinary.

While we never really thought the dead fish and birds were harbingers of the apocalypse, Beck's new role as a rational-minded debunker of hysteria has caught us so off guard that we're now seriously considering stocking up on canned goods and bottled water.
