|Prophet Glenn Beck – Father Guido Sarducci|
Sometimes I say disparaging things about 24/7 cable TV “news.” Perhaps it’s my age. I came up in the time of the giants — Walter Cronkite, Chet Huntley, David Brinkley, Roger Mudd, and the single greatest social commentator ever to appear on the Tube — Father Guido Sarducci, the gossip columnist and rock critic from l’Osservatore Romano.
In a time when social mores seemed to be falling apart, this voice from the Vatican helped the nation and the world hold onto their moral core.
And now, when he’s most needed, he’s back, on “The Colbert Report.” He hasn’t made monsignor yet, but he’s a prince of the church in our hearts. Enjoy.
