Joe Klein: Beck A 'Tele-Charlatan' Promoting 'Ridiculous Conspiracy Theories'

TIME's Joe Klein lashed out at Glenn Beck on Sunday's "Chris Matthews Show."

Matthews was in the process of giving a mock award for who had shown the most chutzpah in 2010. Klein said Beck should have an award all to himself, and called Beck a "tele-charlatan."

Beck, he continued, "retires the cup, not just for [the Restoring Honor Rally] but for this phony professorial air that he has when hes broadcasting, in which he's promoting these ridiculous conspiracy theories by these John Birch Society nutcakes."

Matthews seemed to agree, saying, "I know" in the middle of Klein's rant.
