Glenn Beck: EPA Secretly Poisoning People Like The Nazis

Glenn Beck erroneously covered a news report about the EPA testing diesel fumes on people.

I guess you've noticed that there's been a goldmine of crazy right-wing extremism these last few months and I've had the pleasure of covering the madness on C&L. Glenn Beck erroneously covered a news report about the EPA testing diesel fumes on people and now I think his form of lunacy is starting to make sense. He was very upset by this report and it makes me think that he was a willing participant in the EPA's experiments because now he's comparing the EPA to Nazis!

Earlier this week, the EPA released the results of an internal investigation that found that the agency had failed to fully disclose possible long-term health risks to eighty-one subjects who had agreed to participate in experiments that involved breathing in diesel exhaust and other pollutants.

Because neither Beck nor anyone on his staff could apparently be bothered to do any basic research into what the EPA report actually said, Beck spent a segment on his radio program utterly misrepresenting it by falsely asserting that the EPA had been secretly poisoning people with diesel fumes without their knowledge ... just like the Nazis did!

Beck paints this story as if eighty one people were sitting in a room minding their own business, maybe eating a little lunch when the EPA pumped in diesel exhaust fumes without their knowledge.

Beck: You get in trouble for saying they are like the Nazis. I don't know, pumping diesel fumes into a room when we all know what happens with diesel fumes. I don't know. Doing experiments on people, that kinda sounds a little Nazi-esque to me.
