I think it is of interest to point out that Glenn Beck’s purportedly “racist” comment - to wit, that President Obama has “a deep-seated hatred for white people” — was not one of his original thoughts (“Glenn Beck loses advertisers,” Entertainment, Tuesday). He made this comment on Fox’s early AM radio show, but he was merely repeating what had been said to him the evening before on his own show. At the time, news was swirling over President Obama’s comment that Cambridge, Mass., police had acted “stupidly” in the matter of Sgt. James Crowley and Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. A psychiatrist who is a frequent guest on the news shows put forth the theory that because Mr. Obama rarely slips up in his language, his comment must be considered a rare insight into what he really feels. Mr. Beck was only repeating what had been said to him on a national show.
