I'm not quite sure that this is anything other than a overheard conversation. The lede certainly could have been covered in the 3 sentences that actually discussed but didn't identify complaining staffers.
Beck (and the Beck machine) is dangerously misinformed - which accounts for his audience being largely uninformed. However his audience is that loyal demographic that like to feel that they are in game - even if only for an hour a day. It is a formula that works - because his supporters have become enamored with him and his fiction. They just love him so much, they've never considered that he does this for entertainment. It is irrelevant to them that he makes up a significant amount of his facts and tailors (purposefully lies) about actual facts in order to support the line of his fiction. Only in America could someone with such confusing messages, inane analogies and an enormous deficit in knowledge of history and American National Government - captivate the very group of people he is abusing.
