Why not? Because Glenn Beck decided to make *censored* up about him?
Show us the error of our ways.
Van Jones was hired for this job because he wrote a book called "The Green Collar Economy". The job he was hired for was consulting on the creation of green jobs. So he was ostensibly an expert in the field he was hired to work in. In reality, this was a hack job created to repay political favors and make Obama look more green.
Who might you ask would publish a self avowed communist such as Van Jones and his book published "The Green Collar Economy"? Harper Collins.
Who owns Harper Collins? News Corp.
What else does News Corp own? Fox News.
So Van Jones is such a commie he has his book published by Rupert Murdoch.
How can Glenn Beck continue to work for an organization that published communists like Van Jones?
The reason this was a total non-story is because it was a total non-job. The man had no power. When he became a distraction, he went away. No great loss, it's not like he was an important member of the administration.
