Glenn Beck Refuses to Define "White Culture."

Earlier this summer, Fox News mega-personality Glenn Beck said President Obama was "racist" and has a "deep-seated hate for white culture."

In a riveting interview with Katie Couric and CBS last week, a viewer asked Beck to explain what exactly is "white culture." Beck refused to answer, saying Couric and the viewer were playing the "gotcha game."

VIEWER: What is white culture?

BECK: Ummmmm, I don't know.

Beck then said people can go to his Web site and watch the segment from his show to see what he meant. Couric said he didn't define "white culture" during that segment and pressed him for an answer.

COURIC: People just want to know. What is white culture?
BECK: I’m going to see if I can play your game. People just want to know.
COURIC: Well, [viewer/questioner] Adrian wants to know.
BECK: That’s good for Adrian.

Beck told Couric he’s “not going to get into your sound-bite gotcha game.” Couric noted that the interview would be “completely unedited, so if you felt like you wanted to explain it, you have all the time in the world." Beck still wouldn’t budget. Watch it below:

                                   The problem with these shock talk show host is that their mouths are running faster then their brains . In the end it is all about ratings . The biggest mouth wins . It doesn't really matter if you agree with them or not . If you are cheering them on , or you are calling into the show to rip them a new one . You are still watching their show on that network , and watching those commercials . As long as we are tuned in, they have us right where they want us . The question asked " What is white culture ? " was a reasonable question to ask of Mr. Beck , but one he never really expected to have to explain  . The beauty of it though is that he doesn't have to . It's those kind of comments that hook you and keep you there, and that is how the networks make money - selling air time for commercials . The sponsors get their products exposure . We get mindless entertainment . Glenn , Rush , Jerry - It doesn't really matter . For what it's worth you're better off listening to public radio , or watching public television .
