The dregs, according to Popdecay:
In Tuesday's episode, the controversial Fox News Channel show featured only 3 advertising spots in the first half hour: "The Amazing Water Jet," "I Can Only Imagine Platinum" audio CD from Time Life, and 21st Century Insurance. Jewelry Exchange, Children International, Fox comedy series "Brothers," Egg Genie, Healthcare One, DVD Bible and Hoveround advertised in the second half.Note that "Brothers" would be at least the third house ad Fox has inserted in the Beck show, the others being the Wall Street Journal and News Corp.-owned Speed Channel.
And a new wrinkle has been added to the controversy: Pranksters are using Beck-style rumor-mongering tactics to "investigate" the fictitious notion that Beck raped and murdered a young girl in 1990. Clearly, it's a joke, but some of Beck's fans think it's real.
Meanwhile, Beck -- in true Red Channels style -- has found evidence of communist artists hiding in NBC's Rockefeller Center. Video below.
