With all these mean-spirited cartoonists piling on to this Glen Beck person, I’ll have to make a point of listening. I’ve only listened a couple of times over the last year, but nothing jumped out vs. other pundits.I miss the days when comics, cartoonists and the like would take something a person said or did and make jokes about it. Johnny Carson was a master of it. He did it in fun and you knew it. It came through in how he did it. Same with most comedians, comic writers and other humorists 20+ years ago.Today, they hate someone and lamblast them. Make up stuff or parrot myths that have nothing to do with the actual person. Hate is not funny. Lies are not humor. Nastiness is not funny. Then they wonder why half the public quits reading, listening or watching. Nastiness comes through. I’ve quit reading 5 comics this year alone because they became hateful or had become political advertisements.
