Not everyone across the USA accepts that Charles Darwin was right: there is still a body of opinion that supports creationism. And there are those in the media that are more than ready to lay into evolution for their own ends, the latest being the increasingly wayward Glenn Beck, “star” of Fox News Channel (fair and balanced my arse).
Beck, on his radio show yesterday, told listeners that it was “ridiculous” to think that we “came from monkeys”. As he went on, the thought entered that this was the exact same line that Christine O’Donnell was following all those years ago on Bill Maher’s Politically Incorrect show, which I covered recently.
