The Young Turks' Cenk Uygur responded to Fox's Howard Kurtz and Mediaite's Joe Concha after the two of them defended their buddy Glenn Beck and his claim that he's been cured from whatever mysterious "brain problem" he now says he was suffering from and took a few shots at the "former MSNBC host" whose name they dare not utter in the process.

As Uygur explained once again, he's not buying Beck's claims that he's been "cured" by being spun around in a gyroscope, although he does not doubt that there is something wrong with Glenn Beck that he has not been cured from that makes him act crazy.

He also discussed why he is skeptical about just how much money Beck claims he's making from his Internet ventures and his web site, The Blaze, and why he has every reason to want to get back on television.

Glenn Beck's NOT Crazy, He’s Rich, Insists Whiny Beck Booster:

“Young Turks host Cenk Uygur took up the delicate subject of Glenn Beck’s health — in particular his claim to have have been cured of a mysterious illness by a “chiropractic neurologist,” — and offered his own diagnosis: “I’m not buying it.”

Working off of information reported by The Raw Story, Uygur expressed skepticism that whatever ailed Beck was cured by being placed in a gyroscope and spun, combined with “an intense regimen of spiritual work and fervent prayer.”

Beck recently broadcast a special message to his audience, saying his unidentified ailment had been coming on over the course of the last few years, causing him to lose his memory, suffer seizures, feel intense pain in his hands and feet, and suffer from fits of vocal paralysis."* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.
