Below, a little fun for you all as we head off into the weekend: "The Daily Show" takes down Fox News' Glenn Beck, digging into how the tales of doom and depression he tells on his show seem to have at least a tangential connection to the fact that he's a paid spokesman for a company that deals in gold. Because, of course, gold just happens to be Beck's prescription for how his viewers can protect themselves from said doom and depression.
And if you missed it, Salon's Mike Madden has been over this ground before, with a fantastic piece he wrote back in October about how he made money by essentially investing in all the paranoia Beck's trying to sell.
