      Beck falsely claims financial reform bill would let government shut down Fox News

      Glenn Beck falsely claimed that under current financial regulatory reform legislation, the government can "grab" companies it thinks are "a danger to the nation," including Fox News and Clear Channel. However, the bill would allow the government to seize banks and "nonbank financial" institutions -- not "any company," as co-host Pat Gray put it -- only if they "pose a significant risk to the financial stability of the United States."

      Beck's claim: Under financial bill, Fox News, Clear Channel could be taken over

      Beck, Gray falsely claim bill would let government take over non-financial institutions. On his radio show, Beck stated that while "Obama did inherit a bad situation," "he has made it 1,000 times worse and created a situation to where the state can grab power like crazy." He then pointed to the financial reform bill as an example of government's "frightening" power, saying that under the bill, "they can grab companies" that "they think" are "a danger to the nation." Gray added: "[T]hat's any company that they deem big enough to harm the economy, they can take control over."

      From the June 25 broadcast of Premiere Radio Networks' The Glenn Beck Program:

      BECK: Yeah, Barack Obama did inherit a bad situation. Now, what has he done with that situation? He has made it 1,000 times worse and created a situation to where the state can grab power like crazy. What is in this new financial bill, they can grab companies. They think that it is a danger to the nation? They can just grab it and shut you down. That's a little frightening with that power.

      GRAY: And that's not companies who've taken stimulus, that's any company --

      BECK: Any company.

      GRAY: -- that they deem big enough to harm the economy --

      BECK: Any company.

      GRAY: -- they can take control over.

      BECK: Now, let me ask you this. Could you say that Fox News?

      GRAY: Yes.

      BECK: You darn right you could.

      GRAY: Yes.

      BECK: Could you say that talk radio is?

      GRAY: You bet.

      BECK: Of course you can.

      GRAY: You could take control of Clear Channel.
