Glenn Beck Mocked Woman’s Miscarriage on the Air

I wonder which of Beck’s "9 Principles, 12 Values" this would fall under.

The animosity between Beck and Kelly continued to deepen. When Beck and Hattrick produced a local version of Orson Welles’ "War of the Worlds" for Halloween — a recurring motif in Beck’s life and career — Kelly told a local reporter that the bit was a stupid rip-off of a syndicated gag. The slight outraged Beck, who got his revenge with what may rank as one of the cruelest bits in the history of morning radio. "A couple days after Kelly’s wife, Terry, had a miscarriage, Beck called her live on the air and says, ‘We hear you had a miscarriage,’ " remembers Brad Miller, a former Y95 DJ and Clear Channel programmer. "When Terry said, ‘Yes,’ Beck proceeded to joke about how Bruce [Kelly] apparently can’t do anything right — about he can’t even have a baby."

There’s the right’s great new voice of moral clarity and reason.
