Several conservative bloggers are accusing Glenn Beck of stealing their content without giving credit. Worse, there is evidence that Beck takes steps to hide the true source before using content on his show.
The Daily Caller has unleashed a string of examples of Beck pretending that someone else’s ideas or content was his own. Even conservative publisher Andrew Breitbart, a regular guest on Beck’s television and radio show, accuses Beck of content theft. Breitbart says that Beck occasionally properly credits a source, but “sometimes he also uses other peoples’ work without crediting them, making it appear as though it were his own. But especially since adopting ‘The Truth Has No Agenda’ slogan – and trying to deliberately re-position himself as the pious conscience and judge of many of those he took content from – he has exposed himself to his new motto’s unforgiving standard.”
