Time Mag spinning yarns into gold

I suggest reading Time Magazine's cover story on Glenn Beck if only to appreciate how much the "mainstream" media misses the mark. (I'm not exactly a huge Beck fan, but the enemy of my enemy is my friend.)

Time "calling out" a "yarn" of Beck's:

Some days "they" are the network of leftist community organizers known as ACORN — and his indictment of the group is looking stronger every day. But he also spins yarns of less substance. He tells his viewers that Obama's volunteerism efforts are really an attempt to create a "civilian national-security force that is just as strong, just as powerful as the military."


How much of a "yarn" is this? Well, Beck didn't exactly pull it out of thin air...



Ya know, sometimes Beck is right. It would be nice if media outlets actually checked their stories before accusing somebody of spinning a "yarn".

To paraphrase Joe Wilson: Time, you lie!
