So no one one will step to the plate and show me some right wing propaganda?

Figured as much. ATS pisses me off sometimes


So much for denying ignorance . . . right guys?

Well its about time... he lowered the IQ of the whole station by several points, just by his presence.

Okay, okay, you name calling right wing, left wing nut jobs; I am voting for Obama but even "I" like Glen Beck! He tells it like it is not matter what the subject matter. I think it's too bad that he's moving to Fox. This was truly a good show to be on CNN. Gave a little bit of balance to the network.

Speaking of him telling it like it is, a while back he was talking about New Orleans and how they are losing massive amounts of land a year; it's basically falling into the gulf. It was more technical than that, but anyhow, he said, why bother rebuilding something that's sliding into the gulf at a massive rate. That may sound harsh to some, but it makes sense.

And that is one example that is dragged out as an indication of Becks hateful racist attitudes.

Just to give you an idea of the mindset of those who dislike Beck as a matter of course rather than for any concrete, rational reason.

I watch Fox News, listen to Rush Limbaugh, and other talk radio hosts (conservative).

We are a special breed of people, those of us who listen to the other side. I don't need someone to tell me what I already know, so why have that be my main news source?

You name Hawaii, I can name many other socialized Health Care systems that have succeeded.

And you are talking in technicalities when referring to McCain's system. I didn't say they were exactly alike, only synonymous in the fact that both will require a similar rise in taxes.

Unfortunately, neither of them has provided figures because neither of them will probably do any of what they say.

Quad-x piggy,

Conservative propaganda is anything that goes against the liberal playbook. You know, things like facts? I'll admit I can be an ass sometimes when it comes to political discussions but I have yet to finish a discussion with a liberal because as soon as they run out of quoting the playbook (which has been around for a long time) the only thing that remains is Bush bashing. Before Bush it was Nixon (even they were smart enough to leave Reagan alone...before he died anyway).

Have you seen the commercial with the kid who is the NASCAR driver's nephew? He says something like "when it comes to Mike Wallace and me it usually ends with me putting him in the wall" !


Well when it comes to political discussions with me and liberals it usually ends with them running out of the building, pulling out their hair and screaming at the top of their lungs.....

Agreed, although with CNN, that may be a stretch. Regardless, good riddance. And I hope that this so-called news channel actually hires a REPORTER that REPORTS news and does not give COMMENTARY.
FOX is 95% COMMENTARY - this is NOT NEWS.

I personally like listening to Glenn Beck. He's one of the few conservatives I can stand for any length of time. I prefer more libertareian views myself, as I tend to lean that way, even more liberal, but for a conservative, he tends to lean toward the middle more.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.


I think the reason why people think Beck was right wing is because when CNN took him on, they promoted all his right wing sound bites. I'd guess that was to attract viewers from FOX.

I have never watched the guy so I don't know where he stands.

For those that think CNN is left wing, haven't watched Lou Dobbs or Campbell Brown recently. Lou has it in for Obama, because he mentioned him in a speech about discrimination and Lou has bashed him ever since. He also does a number on McCain as well. Lou just doesn't like anyone.


As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

As an independent, 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.


Try some of the foreign news stations - you might be surprised.

I like the German one on Link TV.

I have watched Beck - - it kind of depends on the subject for me - with him.

FOX used to be my news station - - but they just kept getting more ridiculous and over the top. At this point - - they'd almost fit in with Saturday Morning cartoons.

There cant be any proof. The remarks made by Glenn that people call hateful and racist are only interpreted by them as hateful and racist as in the New Orleans example above. You cant prove an opinion but you cant disprove it either so to them theyre "right" and nothing will open their iron trap minds to see beyond the filter theyve worked so hard to put up.

Have a go with me one day. I will take on anyone talking about politics and I stay out of the mud. I don't even watch liberal media (except the Daily Show) and I never use a buzz word.

I hate buzz words.

Don't clump liberals all into one mass. We're all different. Most conservatives do the very same stuff you blame liberals for. It's rare to find anyone who can talk politics humanely and intelligently.

You have got a deal 620! I appreciate your pasion. And of course you are correct, it seems both sides of the aisle have been taken over by the fringe. All I ask from anyone is an original thought, not a regurgitation of something heard on TV or a cut and paste of someone else's thoughts that I'm supposed to assume is the way they think as well.

Now you'll have to excuse me but it's just so darned hard for me to carry on a serious conversation with you and your darned Wil Ferrell avatar !


oncer more into the breach.....

He was a nut bag in the beginning during 2001-2004.

In 2005 he started to really show the truth starting with bush signing out country away to make for the North American Union.

He did his best to provide facts as much as he can. He also lately been having Ron Paul appear on his show.

If Ron Paul thinks that North American Union is real then how is that not good evidence.

I mean he done the research and he is a doctor. He is the only one that makes sense on the economic situation he even gave a speech on the floor before the bail out was going to be vote on.

He said this bail out will do nothing good. It will create an a temp fix but that will not be good enough. It will fool most thinking that it worked but in reality it will only work for a period of time but not for long. Spending is the problem we face. You can't keep spending to hope your debt goes away.

He also said that the chairmen of the federal reserve should be in prison.

I admire Ron Paul. It takes guts to say something like that to a house full of people who think your nuts.
