Just for the Beck of it: CNN calls games bloggers ‘losers’

 
Glenn Beck has clearly gotten a taste for blood, as he continues his temporary crusade against Grand Theft Auto — and it WILL be temporary, as he’ll get bored of it when his viewers do. Here we see him talking to Dr. Cheryl Olson, co-author of Grand Theft Childhood, and as you can tell from his flabbergasted face, Beck seems quite disappointed that she’s an expert who, for once, is NOT saying things he agrees with.
 
It’s quite enjoyable watching him struggle to find a way to twist the argument back into the “GTA is evil” sentiment after Dr. Olson undermines his entire point. His shallow attempts to cash in on the controversy (ironic that HE’s the one who says “M” stands for “Money”) come to a head when he randomly, for no reason, blurts this little gem of wisdom out during the interview:
I will tell you that all these video gamers… they’re bloggers, as well as video gamers – they’re writing all kinds of stuff about me [that] I’m the enemy now of video gamers. I could care less about video games. Video game bloggers? They’re losers…
Yup, that’s us. The very same bloggers you guys rely on to look trendy and cool nowadays are losers. I’m not even offended by that, actually. If Mr. Beck wants to tar an entire blogging industry with the loser-brush, that’s his business. Our business, however, is posting a YouTube of his stupid ramblings so we can all get hits off it, without providing a single shred of a f*cking rating to CNN.
 
So suck that one down, mate.
