Inglis, in the lion’s den, dares to rebuke Beck


Republican Rep. Bob Inglis (SC), appearing Thursday night at a town hall in his deeply conservative upstate district, was greeted with boos and prompted constituents to walk out when he told an angry crowd to turn off Fox News talk show host Glenn Beck.

Now, the YouTube link claims Inglis said, “Turn Glenn Beck off,” but that’s not easy to pick up over the din.

Price Atkinson, a spokesman for Inglis, said his boss never mentioned the talk show host’s name.

“In response to an audience question regarding fear mongering by people like Glenn Beck, [Inglis] said ‘What I would suggest is turn that television off when he comes on,'” Atkinson said.

Whether the congressman said Beck’s name or not, that’s still a pretty bold rebuke of an increasingly popular conservative figure.
