Glenn Beck defenders write a lot of e-mails. Here's one representative note:

Hello Jeffrey:

If what you say is true, then why wouldn't Rupert Murdock, who is Jewish, put a stop to it? Obviously he knows about everything Glenn says on the air.

The truth that you did not address my question in your piece is a strong indication to me you feel this is a good reason to not believe what you write.

I also feel you are being hypersensitive. It is time for you to relax. The world is better than you think it is.

I will be sure to bring this up with Murdoch at synagogue, except that he doesn't go to synagogue, because he's Christian.

UPDATE: Murdoch has been a stalwart defender of Jews, as Seth Lipsky pointed out recently. Which does not give me comfort, nevertheless, re: Beck.
