In the wake of Glenn Beck's hugely successful Restoring Honor rally held in Washington, D.C. this weekend, the Huffington Post has published an offer of $100,000 to anyone with evidence that would destroy Beck's reputation and take him off the political/cultural battlefield.
An essay written by Beau Friedlander, the last editor-in-chief of Air America before it shut down this year, was posted in the Politics section of the Huffington Post today with the title, $100,000 For Glenn Beck's Sex Tape.
Friedlander says he will not use his own money for the hit, but that he will "broker" the deal.
It is time to pop the tea baggers' favorite balloon (so what if it will be replaced by another?), and with that in mind I hereby offer to negotiate a $100,000 payday to the person who will come forward with a sex tape or phone records or anything else that succeeds in removing Glenn Beck from the public eye forever. I am not offering the cash myself, but I will broker the deal and/or raise the money for what you bring to the table. (And it better be good.)
If you have the goods, or if you want to contribute to a slush fund to buy more takedowns (probably not tax deductible), please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Friedlander couches his offer in the context of Andrew Breitbart's offer of $100,000 for the Journolist listserve messages, but this is more in line with pornographer Larry Flynt's blackmail campaign against Congressmen during Bill Clinton's impeachment, which followed a threat from Clinton conveyed by George Stephanopoulos to expose their sex lives.
Likewise, the Huffington Post has ties to the Obama White House, raising the question of whether the White House is behind this targeting of Beck.

That tape is right next to the “magic spittle” tape from the Obamacare Capital Steps Brewhaha
Friedlander is just an average liberal, asking others to put money where his own mouth is.
Becks already recieved death threats and a IRS audit, this is NOTHING.
What needs to be trumpeted at this point is that
they have just admitted that they cannot refute the message.
That is very true, but I think this would backfire on the Loonies..Beck would have more followers and be more popular than ever. A sex tape is about the only thing that makes the famous more famous. Paris Hilton, Pam Anderson and Kim Kardashian are sure idolized in this country. It would be no different for Beck.
In answer to your question, Obama and his ilk fund it of course.
Beck already opened his closet and threw it out on the floor. He in no way tries to portray himself as anything remotely equivelant to a saint. Their level of despiration is astounding.
None is least assailable as a sinner who confessed his sins and Glenn is in a regular state of admission on both his radio and TV shows. Just goes to show how much these losers really know their competition.
This from the people that excused Clinton’s affairs and rape? Typical.
If it didn’t matter for Bill Clinton, why should it matter for Glenn?
These people have no knowledge of how to build something good — they only know how to destroy.
God has a way of protecting His children. It will be interesting to see what He has in mind for the Huffington Post.
“...anything else that succeeds in removing Glenn Beck from the public eye forever.”
Sounds like they’ve implied a ‘mob hit’.
Sit back and pretend you are a reader of Huffington:
“Wow, 100,000, I have to look into this and see what I can find”
“Hey, this Beck guy is pretty neat - I like him”
=New Converts :)
That's an offer to pay someone to kill Glen Beck.
I'd suggest the FBI be called in on this one.
And if the bad guys can't get the stuff, they'll falsify them. Beck's downfall is too big a prize to pass up. We know how they operate.
Glenn Beck has always claimed to have a very rough past. I think there have been addictions and other things that he has overcome.
He should continue to be very open about his past.
And hopefully he has hired a bodyguard...for obvious security reasons, but also with authorization to keep him from stupid personal mistakes.
This is probably true of every public person with the resources to do so. It would have done wonders for Rush Limbaugh’s reputation.
Oh gosh, if he gets wind of this, he’ll be preening in a red Speedo on his show tonight.
DNA samples of his kids will demonstrate conclusively that he had sex with his wife on more than one occasion!!!
They cant take down his arguments, so theyll take him down instead.They never even mention his arguments. Not once. Not a single time.
how ridiculous. he is the FIRST person to tell you how debauched and degenerate he was, anyone who spends 5 minutes listening to him knows that.
