After Time's Joe Klein declared that Glenn Beck might plausibly be called "seditious," fellow Fox News host Bill O'Reilly gave the embattled host a pep talk and dismissed Klein's contention as "dopey."
After mockingly questioning whether Beck was trying to foment a rebellion, O'Reilly got serious and urged his Bold Fresh Tour partner to ignore the left's catcalls.
O'REILLY: I don't want you to be bothered. Just ignore these guys. You know, you're Glenn Beck. You're on top of the world.
BECK: It's dreamy to be me.
O'REILLY: That's right.
Papa Bear concluded his pep talk with an unequivocal message of support. "I want you to ignore those pinheads who are saying you want to overthrow the government," he instructed.
