Well, no one can say that Beck didn’t wear it out.
There were days when he was spellbinding in his presentation. But when he would appear with O’Reilly on the latter’s show, one got the sense of a “cocktail personality,” who would conform himself to the expectations of his surroundings.
I think that he went into a lot of things that he did not understand, but they were often matters that few others who do what he does would even go near. He got many things right, but often mucked it up when he got them half-right, and he always came off as just a little crazy. He leaves an uncertain legacy.
Those who look beneath the surface of things do so at their own risk.
