GLENN: Norah O'Donnell pointed out last night on her Twitter account that Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin were together for a full hour and there was not one mention of Haiti, which I find ‑‑
Pat: Um, um, um.
Glenn: ‑‑ horrifying. Don't you?
Glenn: It speaks volumes.
Glenn: That we were together for a full hour ‑‑
Pat: And didn't talk Haiti at all.
Glenn: Not a peep.
Pat: Not a word about Haiti.
Glenn: Now ‑‑
Pat: Does that mean ‑‑ is that hate? Is that just hate for Haiti?
Glenn: I think it is. I mean, she can read into my heart
Pat: It's your hatred of Haiti.
Stu: It wouldn't have anything to do with an interview that was taped during a breaking news event, like, you wouldn't ‑‑ you know, it wouldn't have anything to do with that
Stu: The fact that the interview was a few hours previous and then, you know, we have news people who are on live and ‑
Glenn: No. Really obviously that had nothing to do with it. It didn't come up because I was concentrating on a bigger picture with Sarah Palin on something ‑‑ this is the first time that I've sat down with an interview with Sarah Palin and I really wasn't talking about current events. I don't know if she noticed that. I think I had a current event here and a current event here, but only as it tied into the conversation so, I wasn't doing a current event kind of interview.
Stu: Well, I assume she's doing that, though, to try to did I reflect from that controversy of hers, you know and it comes down to ‑‑.
Glenn: What is her controversy?
Stu: The Norah O'Donnell controversy.
Glenn: What was the Norah O'Donnell controversy?
Stu: Apparently she was Tweeting about pedicures while Haiti was suffering.
Glenn: Why the hatred there.
Stu: She's going crazy. She's getting attacked about that.
Stu: You know, I kind of defend her on that, you know, because she's trying to ‑‑ was it stupid for her to go out there and start Tweeting about pedicure attention in the middle of a terrible tragedy in sure. Yes. But, I mean, you know, look. We all make mistakes and I think that she's going to obviously have to come out with a public apology very soon.
Glenn: Yeah. I don't have the blogs, but the good thing is we've just got about ‑‑ oh, I don't know ‑‑ about 8 million times the exposure than a blog does. So, you mentioning that she was Tweeting about getting a pedicure and manicure while Haiti was suffering, she must have said in that ‑‑ in those Tweets, while Tweeting ‑‑ while Haiti was ‑‑
Stu: I think, for instance ‑‑
Glenn: How many times in her tweet did she mention Haiti, besides the fact that we didn't mention Haiti?
Stu: Obviously, you know, she's in a breaking news format. She was talking about Haiti quite a bit, but a lot of people are on top ‑‑ I'm not. I mean, I think, you know, look. I think everyone has their own personal way of doing things and covering events but, you know, the fact that she was Tweeting about pedicures during this event, a lot of people are upset about it and a lot of people are attacking and, you know, I'm personally defending because, do you know what?
Glenn: I'm defending, too.
Stu: I'm defending and I know ‑‑
Glenn: Look. You need to get ‑‑ look. You've got half a million people dead. Sometimes you have to find your own source of power.
Pat: A little beauty in your universe.
Glenn: Yeah. You do. Because there's a lot of horror that is happening and Norah O'Donnell is right there, not on the front lines, not even in the middle lines, or the back lines, but she's there and she's got her ‑‑
Pat: She's talking about the lines.
Glenn: Yeah. She's talking about a lot. You can imagine the stress that she's under, having to talk about that all the time.
Pat: And if your feet don't look good as you're talking about the horrors in this world, how do you even survive?
Stu: And a lot of people are saying it's insensitive because she wasn't even talking about her own pedicure. She was talking about someone else getting a pedicure and it's like ‑‑
Pat: A lot of people are talking about it, a lot of people?
Stu: Millions ‑‑ I assume millions. We're taking a sample here, but millions of people are extremely insensitive for Norah O'Donnell about Tweeting about pedicures while Haiti suffers and that's something that, I think, people have to deal with individually.
Glenn: Well, Hey. We all ‑‑ we all have to ‑‑
Pat: We all make mistakes.
Glenn: Let's open our hearts to Norah O'Donnell and make sure she understands that, Hey, talking about manicures and pedicures while Haiti suffers, I don't assume you hate everybody in Haiti. I mean, you probably ‑‑ maybe you do. Maybe some of the people, but not all of them.
