Congratulations to Glenn Beck on being called up to the Major Leagues!

Looking forward to finally watching him, because before I couldn't because he was on CNN.




See my previous statement.

IMO Glen Fake is the PTB provided gatekeeper for the partially awake right. He puts just enough truth out there to keep the attention of those that are awakening to the truth, while constantly inserting the poison pill that will keep his listeners from realizing the totality of their enslavement, and so keep them from challenging their oppressors. He is at times very engaging, occasionally very creepy, and always an obvious tool IMO.

Glenn Beck is a propagandist and a fear monger. It's clear if you've watched his show for more than a year.

Moving to fox is a perfect fit.

He's officially joined the "family".

all i have to say, to all you people out there that are so negative. To everyone who says hes a propagandist. You probably have NEVER watched more then 5 min of Glenns show, and if you DID it was probably cause you didnt like the facts. Im very very objective when i chose my news, and i fact check constantly. Ive yet to catch him in anything that wasnt true. But, like they say, how can you debate with common sense, to people that have none.

Excuse me, but I watch/read CNN and MSNBC - to see what the opposition is saying, and I'm about as conservative as they come. Well, maybe more libertarian these days.

Anyway, show me some libs here that watch Fox for the same reasons - to see what the other side is saying. Or do most libs just like to have "preaching to the choir" and only listen to people that agree with their points of view? That would be pretty elitist if people on either side were doing it.

Glenn Beck is Mormon.

Mormons are - except for a few differences in belief - - fundamental Christians.

As much as I can't stand FOX news - - it makes perfect sense for Beck to be one of them.

That's really not a Libs/Cons issue. Most people just want to hear their own opinions & beliefs reinforced. Facts be damned. Yes, people on both sides do it.

YAH-HOOOO!! I cannot stand that gasbag and never understood why CNN would cheapen their brandname and reputation by giving him any time at all, muchless during prime viewing hours. He belongs with the rest of the extreme right, xenophobic and thakfully increasingly irrelevant nutjubs that pretend they are representing the truth with facts to back it up.


It is amazing how individuals like you create labels, so you might enable yourselves in the quest to point fingers at and condemn those whom you disagree with. "Xenophobic"? It is not "Xenophobic" to enforce the Sovereign Borders of the United States, enforce it's Laws, and in the process prevent the favoritism already granted towards a specific grouping of Law-Breakers.

Not to mention he wants to basically socialize the health care system also through tax rebates.

Basically doing exactly what Obama is saying but instead of making health insurance cheaper and more affordable, it stays the same price but we have more money to spend.

Same thing, different method.


Actually you are incorrect in regards to the Health Care Policies. Through Senator McCain's plan to eliminate the current State-confined Health Insurer Policies, he will essentially "Syndicate" them for all Citizens within the United States. This will create a massive amount of competition, and thus bring prices down. Also, Senator McCain's plan is not a Socialization of the system as is Senator Obama's. EVERYONE who pays taxes will receive the Refundable Credit offered by Senator McCain, so it IS NOT Welfare, or Socialism, or Nationalization.

As a matter of fact, they attempted to implement a plan very similar to Senator Obama's in Hawaii (in 2008). It only lasted for 7 Months before everyone began cheating it, and it was forced into cancellation just this Month.

Makes perfect sense:

Right-wing propagandists should stick with right-wing propaganda outlets and left-wing propagandists should stick with left-wing propaganda outlets.

This only leaves the void open for a left-winger to fill at CNN.

Not doing the people any favors but makes good business sense.

The problem that I have with this show and with shows like nancy grace is that it gets away from reporting the headlines which is what made this channel hot, in my mind, in the first place.

I always found headline news to be less biased then it's sister station cnn which made it a more attractive option to get some un-biased news stories. To be fair, they probably come across as more un-biased because they don't have time in their 30 min segments to report the stores and then add in their commentary as much.

As an independant, I didn't mind Glenn's show but since it came on about the same time I got home from work it forced me to switch channels to get my nightly news and of course since there really isn't an unbiased news channel on the air at all I end up watching several different channels just so I can decipher for myself what is actually going on.

I do not understand how people call him right wing propagandist. . .

He is more independent than anything. Beck and Savage are what brought me out of my right wingedness (made my own word) to be an independent. I cant listen to Rush or Hannity for more than 30 minutes now. OReilly I can go about half a show.

He tells it like it is. The way it should be.


Can all of you flinging insults about him please prove what you have said? I will be waiting . . .

One must ask, how long will Fox last after Obama takes office? Or will O'Reilly and Beck have a fist fight? I think Glenn can take him down...

Glenn has all that experience falling down when he was a drunk so he can take a good punch.....

Allright listen up "You sick, twisted freaks"


The man has the third highest rated radio show in America for a very good reason. He blends insight with comedy and makes people laugh about the current status of our world. For those of you who are of the hit and run ilk, Beck even says that you have to listen to his radio show for at least six to eight weeks to get his style. I don't know what it says about me but I picked up on him right away.

Now I agree that sometimes he's a bit too gloom and doom for my taste, but he's usually spot on and not afraid to voice his opinion. I never could figure out how he landed on CNN anyway. Those people must think he is the antichrist or something.

Now with regard to McCain, Beck was a Mitt Romney man until the primaries. He hammered McCain a lot. I was for Mitt as well and hope McCain can get past his ego and appoint Romney to handle this economy.

And thats all I have to say about that.

Kudos General , looks like you listen to beck as much as i do. I also see his shows as they often come to Boise. Anyone who flames on Beck in my opinion hasnt taken the time to listen to the guy. Hes done alot for people and alot against racism and the fanatics. Hes also not afraid to call people out, like Rev Sharpton and a few of his ilk, and ive watched him keep his head level during these interviews , when it seems that almost anyone would have blown a gasket. Dont demonize a man you have yet to understand! Once again Kudos General!

To me Glenn Beck is the modern day version of Will Rogers. He cares nothing for what party you might be involved with, he only cares if you have the wellfare of our nation at heart. If you don't you, are a target for satire and ridicule. If you screw up on your current policies he doesn't pull punches. He does it in a manner that can make you laugh and he does it with intelligence, Like he says if you don't like what I say, thats why they make dials on your radio or TV!
