Echoing MSNBC host Don Imus's repeated references to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) as "Satan," CNN Headline News host Glenn Beck referred to Clinton as the "Antichrist" on the June 6 edition of CNN Headline News' Glenn Beck program.
During a segment about author Anne Karpf's theory that women's voices have become deeper over the past 50 years, Beck said he "wanted to see if there was anything to this." He proceeded to play two video clips of Clinton, one from 1993 and the other from "today." During the first clip, Beck interrupted Clinton as she stated "I'm not looking for any particular role or position," and said "OK, OK. Bringing back too many memories. Please, stop with that." Beck then presented a second clip of Clinton with her voice artificially deepened, at which point Beck remarked: "I think we may have found our Antichrist and our next president."
Earlier in the broadcast, Beck also considered actress Bea Arthur, NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams, and actress Angelina Jolie as candidates for the "Antichrist," before concluding that he had "found our Antichrist" with Clinton.
As Media Matters for America has noted, Imus, on the May 24 edition of MSNBC's Imus in the Morning, referred to Clinton as "Satan" 11 times, once calling her "that buck-tooted witch, Satan." Two days earlier, on his May 22 broadcast, Imus had said that he never had to apologize for insulting former President Bill Clinton and his "fat ugly wife, Satan."
From the June 6 edition of CNN Headline News' Glenn Beck:
BECK: All right. Here we go. Today's "Quality of Life" market update.
The stock of women in the workforce moving higher on the news that their voices, believe it or not, are getting lower. A new book out in England has found a direct correlation between the pitch of a woman's voice and the growing equality of women in the workplace.
Believe it or not, somebody has spent time noodling this idea. Her name: Anne Karpf. She's an author. She examined women's voices over the second half of the 20th century and found that their voices have deepened dramatically. She's got nothing else to do with her time.
She says the trend is most evident in high-powered positions like TV correspondents and female politicians. She says they're often encouraged to lower their pitch in order to get ahead. We wanted to see if there was anything to this. We looked at a couple of pieces of tape. We're going to roll them for you. Here's Hillary Clinton in '93.
