Glenn Beck’s Latest Revelations

Glenn Beck fascinates me. I spent some time with him for this 2014 feature about his move to Texas, a story he sort of liked and kind of hated. He's been in the news quite a bit this week. First, he made headlines when it appeared he was telling his show's audience that God killed Antonin Scalia to help Ted Cruz get elected. (What he actually said was slightly more nuanced: that the death would "wake America up.") Last night he was on with WFAA's Rebecca Lopez to talk about his family's history with domestic violence. Both of his parents and his sisters were victims of domestic violence, he explained. And his mother continued the cycle both as a victim again and as an offender. The interview is classic Glenn Beck, by which I mean: a lot of things you already either like or dislike about him.
