Glenn Beck Is Afraid of Google (Video)
He says the search engine is "deeply in bed with the government."
Glenn Beck doesn't surf the web via Google.
"May I recommend if you're doing your own homework, don't do a Google search. It seems to me that Google is pretty deeply in bed with the government," Beck said on Fox News earlier this week (via Media Matters). "Remember, maybe this is explaining why Google is being kicked out of all the other countries. Are they just a shill now for the United States government?"
"Who is Jared Cohen?" he went on, referring to the search giant's director of Google ideas. "Is he a private citizen or government operative? And isn't this the second Google guy we've found? This is the second Google executive now being exposed as an instigator of a revolution."
"Are you comfortable with a government partnering covertly with media organizations, search engines, social networking so they can bring change that the Washington elites have designed? I don't know about you, but I am not really comfortable with that. I don't care George Washington, George Bush, Barack Obama, or Abraham Lincoln, I'm not comfortable with that. It used to be called propaganda. What do we call it now? That's right -- community organizing."
Google isn't the only questionable organization, according to Beck.
"By the way, also, you know, I would look into all the people the State Department are working with, MSNBC, CBS, gosh, MTV? Maybe we should start watching those networks a little bit and seeing what their news coverage is like," he said. "
"And -- who are these groups? Who are they? Are they right? Are they left? Are they clean? Are they dirty? Are they front groups? I don't know," he added.
