It's bad enough that Glenn Beck is so much of a wuss that he changed his story mid-way through when challenged by his audience during a broadcast; it's even worse that he didn't think folks would quickly find information to prove his flip-flop. But what's worst of all is that Beck is a complete hypocrite on the subject of organized labor.
In yesterday's episode of FOX's Glenn Beck show, he began his usual anti-union tirade only to get stopped and corrected by union members in his studio audience.
In the video below, you'll hear Beck attempt to change his stance to appease members of a teachers' unions:

Beck only caught himself in a trap, though. He's always been openly against organized labor, as he clearly stated
on the Feb. 24, 2011 episode of his show. He's made complaints
about union members for years, as found in transcripts
of his radio show. He's also referred to
labor unions as "communist" and "socialist." And just a few weeks ago, he said
a union organizer was "worse than Osama bin Laden."
What makes Beck's two-faced, flip-flop hypocrisy even worse, though, is that he himself is represented by a union. That's right - the lying, anti-union, "I'll change my story mid-way through to keep this audience quiet" Beck is represented by
the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, which is under the AFL-CIO.
