Night after night they give an unedited national forum to a tear-stained conspiracy theorist who critics contend is merely a delusional paranoiac.
On Monday Glenn Beck suggested that Friday's horrifying earthquake and tsunami in Japan was possibly a 'message from God.'
'We can't see the connections here,' he told his viewers. 'I'm not saying God is causing earthquakes - well I'm not not saying that either!
'What God does is God's business. But I'll tell you this - there's a message being sent. And that is, "Hey you know that stuff we're doing? Not really working out real well. Maybe we should stop doing some of it." I'm just saying.'
In a scatter shot list of possible reasons why the Japanese people having invoked God's ire, he even cited 'radical Islam.' As if Japan were a jihadist training camp. As if it were a nation full of radical Muslims.
Presumably by Friday he will have found a way to blame it on the First Lady, too: "I'm not saying it was her - well I'm not not saying that either!'
There's a message being sent to the American people by Beck, all right: absolutely no credibility should be given to either Beck or Fox while this man is given a forum for his bizarre 'views.'
