On his radio show Wednesday, Glenn Beck confirmed that he was as frustrated as he appeared during his interview of former Rep. Eric Massa, D-N.Y.

"I almost said ... you've wasted enough of my time, get out. I almost said that. I almost threw him out of the studio like three times," Beck said.


Later, Beck tried to spin the whole debacle as a positive, saying, "Now that we've spent the hour, we don't ever have to pay attention to this man ever again."

That's true, though of course if Beck had done his work in advance and not been so quick to leap on what he thought was a story that would advance his anti-Obama narrative, he wouldn't have had to spend the hour in the first place.
