Glenn Beck now at war with The Washington Post because of how much the paper hated his book

Font Size:

The Washington Post sure disliked Glenn Beck’s new Libertarian-ish thriller, The Overton Window, which came out today. The book’s plot centers around an evil person who attempts to stage a coup on the United States government, and his son, who attempts to stage a coup on some lady named Molly. There is also an Eliot Spitzer cameo! “The suspense of The Overton Window comes largely from wondering when the thrills will begin” is one of the kindest lines in the review. The piece’s lede takes a less charitable tack: “The success of Glenn Beck’s novel, The Overton Window, will be measured not by its literary value (none), or its contribution to the thriller genre (small), or the money it rakes in (considerable), but rather by the rebelliousness it incites among anti-government extremists.”

Beck, for one, is of the opinion that the book has been grossly misunderstood, reports Yahoo’s Michael Calderone. “Did they ever say that about Tom Clancy?”
