Enroll In 'Beck University'


Geez. You've got to be kidding me:
“School may be out for the summer, but for Glenn Beck class is just starting,” reads an announcement on Beck’s website. “This July, while others are relaxing poolside, head back to the classroom - from the comfort of your own home. That may sound like an oxymoron but Glenn’s new academic program is only available online.”

The site explains that “Beck University is a unique academic experience bringing together experts in the fields of religion, American history and economics.”

“Through captivating lectures and interactive online discussions, these experts will explore the concepts of faith, hope and charity and show you how they influence America’s past, her present and most importantly her future,” the announcement promises.
Dear America, please do not be fooled by the shiny, flashy-thingie. Glenn Beck and his "experts" do not form the equivalent of an advanced degree in education or history.

I cannot wait until I get into a political debate with someone and they cite Beck University as the source for the foundation of their argument. Ugh.

Postscript: That is indeed the official seal of the "university" at the top of the post. For more information on the "university", check out the entry at InsideHigherEd.com.
