Fox News host Glenn Beck now has something in common with former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
They’ve barred media from their public appearances. Representatives for Palin, who spoke in China yesterday, refused to allow press at her event, saying they were trying to ensure the governor’s “comfort.”
A directive from Fox News Channel and Glenn Beck “and his representatives” have instructed a town near Seattle not to let anyone but a single local reporter near an event Saturday for the controversial Fox talker. No press credentials are to be allowed to be issued to anyone else.
How have locals responded? Ragan was quoted as saying, “Of several hundred e-mails I have had, there are maybe three supporting it. All of them talk about the fact that they will shop no longer in Mount Vernon.”
