Glenn Beck Attacks 'Jersey Shore' As 'Poison' (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Jan 28th 2011 4:35PM
Well, it's official: Glenn Beck does not like 'Jersey Shore.' On 'Glenn Beck' (weekdays, 5 PM ET on Fox News), he lamented the fact that the reality show is attracting more viewers than ever before.

"I don't think most Americans even recognize some of the things that pass for entertainment on TV is actually poison. This is the 'Jersey Shore,'" Beck explained, as a clip in the background showed a furious girl-fight between two of the housemates.

"'Jersey Shore' just last week broke the viewing record -- 8.9 million viewers on MTV," Beck continued.

Then Beck read a synopsis of the record-breaking episode, which featured Snooki being released from jail for disorderly conduct.

"Why would this crap attract 9 million people?" Beck cried.

Pot, meet kettle.

Well, Beck's right. It is crap. It has no redeeming value whatsoever, and only serves to distract us from what's really important. This show is exactly why I don't have cable or satellite TV. I wonder how many Jersey Shore fans can intelligently discuss even the most basic aspects of our Constitution, our history as a Nation, our system of government or economics, or even world events? How many even know our national motto? Here's a hint: its not E Pluribus Unum.
Those who don't know history are doomed to repeat it. All I can say is: Bread and circuses. (look it up)
