Rev. Glenn Beck
Of all the responses the Transborder Immigrant Tool received, arguably none had more reach than its spot on the Glenn Beck show. As the timeline indicates, the Tool had already made its way onto Fox's radar, so perhaps it is no surprise that it would become red meat.
His diatribe on the piece begins with a preacherly warning, but soon slips into his signature storytelling, as he launches his own speculative deployment of the Tool, presenting poetry that was featured in a museum demo but not slated for the working project. That is not to say that the tool he creates is any less real than the one featured in other deployments, but to demonstrate the ways in which the performance of this project has co-opted the media into its system of circulation.
