Toward the beginning of the third hour of his three-hour program today, Glenn Beck took the time to praise the “work” of Jane Haubrich, the Doylestown (Bucks County) 5-year-old whose Hurricane Irene reporting received attention from some Big Media outlets.
While 8-year-old Will Rubin was the pint-sized aspiring meterologist covered, pre-Irene, by Philadelphia Jewish Culture Examiner, Haubrich was covered by bigger media outlets such as WHYY/NewsWorks and CNN.
About 25 seconds into his third hour (after briefly discussing the subject of Warren Buffett owing $1 billion in back taxes), Beck, who for much of the previous two weeks, was in Israel as part of his “Restoring Courage” solidarity event, brought up Haubrich, presumably in part due to her unintentional parodying of Big Media hurricane hyping.
The discussion went as follows:
Beck: There is a younger … how old is she, Pat?
Co-host Pat Gray: 5.
Beck: She’s 5 years old. She was doing her own reports on the hurricane, and here she is, from Pennsylvania, a cute little 5-year-old doing a weather report during the hurricane.
Haubrich [Audio clip]: … reporting from Doylestown, Pennsylvania. The rain’s coming down more than it was before. The wind is probably going faster. I think this is just the starting of it. I definitely feel it on my head, just a tiny bit of rain. I think that this is probably going to be my – and I might think that it’s the last of it.
Haubrich [Different audio clip]: Jane Haubrich here reporting from Doylestown, Pennsylvania. My puppy, I’m concerned about the flood, just like my puppy. It’s definitely raining more because it’s 5 o’clock now.
Haubrich [Different audio clip]: Jane Haubrich here reporting from Doylestown, Pennsylvania. This is my last report because it’s my bedtime. It is really raining. The wind has picked up. This is the biggest ever has it been. Everybody take care and please stay inside. Otherwise, you might blow away.
Gray: Best reports of the entire storm.
Beck: You know what? She wasn’t swimming in sewage like the lady in Washington, D.C. [Note: it was actually a male reporter, Tucker Barnes of WTTG-TV who was covered in sewage during coverage of Hurricane Irene, in Ocean City, Marylans.]
Gray: No, that’s true.
Beck: I love these reporters who go out, and they … “Look, Bob just got blown away and has been impaled by a giant pair of scissors.”
Gray: “Isn’t it neat? Can you get the camera on that? The scissors go right through his skull. Look at that. Ain’t that cool? That’s so neat.”
Beck: It’s really amazing, but, with her, I kind of like the fact that she was outside, you can hear the rain.
Gray: I love when she says: “It’s raining more because it’s 5 o’clock.”
