( – Liberal talk radio host Mike Malloy lashed out at conservative commentator Glenn Beck, who has a program on the Fox News Channel, saying he hopes Beck commits suicide “on camera,” particularly given that suicide “is rampant in his family” and that Beck apparently is “self-destructive.”
“I have good news to report,” said Malloy on his Aug. 4 radio program. “Glenn Beck appears closer to suicide. I'm hoping that he does it on camera.”
“Suicide is rampant in his family, and given his alcoholism and his tendencies towards self-destruction,” said Malloy, “I am only hoping that when Glenn Beck does put a gun to his head and pulls the trigger, that it’s on television, because somebody will capture it on YouTube and it will be the most popular little piece of video for months.”
The Mike Malloy Show is nationally syndicated, and Malloy was one of the original hosts of the liberal Air America network. The Glenn Beck Program is broadcast on the Fox News Channel.
Brian Maloney, who edits the Radio Equalizer blog, first reported on Malloy’s comments on Aug. 5.
