Glenn Beck has, in the past, claimed that 9-11 truthers are "nut jobs," "idiots," "dangerous," and "anarchists." Yet Andrew Napolitano guest-hosted Beck's show for him on Thursday. As Media Matters has previously discussed, Napolitano claimed that it's "hard for me to believe that" World Trade Center Building 7 "came down by itself" - one of the central beliefs of the 9-11 Truth movement. He also said he said he was suspicious of the official story on the 9-11 attack.
Guest-hosting Beck, while holding beliefs previously described as a firing offense by Fox personalities, seems to be the latest way in which Fox is whitewashing Napolitano's conspiracy theorizing. Perhaps holding such beliefs is no longer considered "dangerous" in the world of Fox News.
