“I thought it was funny at the beginning,” Prof. Piven quipped, talking about the first time, about two years ago, when she became aware through her students that Beck was talking about her. Now, however, she finds Beck “insidious” and “very scary,” particularly because “people are listening” to him. She also noted how bizarre it was to her that Beck would describe “how big changes in American institutions can be traced to something these people did,” including herself. “In my case, it was a little article I wrote with my husband 45 years ago.”
Piven’s going public today may be the first of a series of appearances if Beck takes the bait and challenges her on her comments today.
