Glenn Beck a Rapist… Attack Continues.
So say hundreds of people online. The attack on Glenn Beck continues by the internet crowd calling for a boycott of Beck’s advertisers. Can we now boycott the internet for making false accusations? The accusation that “Glenn Beck raped and murdered a girl in 1990” has apparently gone… well, viral. A whole website has sprung up because of it. glennbeckrapedandmurderedayounggirlin1990.com Warning: Not Safe For Work.
In the age of the internet false accusations are common. Glenn Beck has yet to respond to the “Claims”. (Can you blame him?) A claim that is being made on the I-report feature of CNN’s website. CNN is probably loving the traffic that it is receiving to its “unedited, unfiltered” news site. Glenn Beck formally hosted a show on CNN before moving to Fox News. Nobody seemed to mind him when he was on CNN.
Internet, user driven reporting is the future of the news media. Incidents like this one, sets back the progress a good 100%, as this will not be the first “viral” joke. Sure enough many of the visitors here will be arriving because they are actually wondering if Glenn Beck actually committed this crime. No, of course he did not. Here is the text that was reported on Ireport.com
May 10, 1990, 11 year old Robin Cornell and her 32 year old babysitter, Lisa Storey were found beaten,raped, and smothered to death in Cape Coral, Florida. Police are now interviewing local detectives to re-open the case, but if they don’t find any new leads by the end of the year it will be closed. They are also looking into airing an episode on Americas Most Wanted. This town desperately needs your help in solving this case.
Beck was also linked to the rape and murder of seven-year old Margaret Shrader in Harris County, Texas in 1990.
The people who had a problem with Glenn Beck’s “racist” comments… Congratulations, you are much worse.

I think we need to leave the death penalty on the table. The evidence is overwhelming and god clearly wants it that way. scott929
