Glenn Beck: Americans Are Addicted to Being Outraged
In many ways, there has never been a bette time to be a journalist in the United States — at least in the lifetime of anyone reading this. With the President of the United States sporting the bravado he does, and the virulent culture of criticism that surrounds him, a simple series of tweets can define the news cycle for weeks.
Considering the rapid changes in our communication — as well as the political culture in the United States — it’s not surprising. While the news of the day once caused Americans to take pause and reflect, the response now is to react as swiftly and as loudly as possible.
Gone are the days when published pictures from Vietnam showing civilians being executed inspired an entire generation to reconsider trusting the government with everything. The order of the day now is not to think — but to react.
Nationally syndicated radio host and The Blaze founder Glenn Beck responded to this cultural trend in his new book, appropriately titled Addicted to Outrage. Watch him fire back in his interview with Ben Shapiro in the video below.
