I'll be taking the next day or two to put together a cohesive post regarding this. There are a few examples I can think of, I'll get some footage and break it down (i'll try to include the crying bit too

I think Beck is legit in the topics he addresses, He's been doing them long before he went to FNC, However I don't believe that FNC cares one way or the other about the stuff Beck talks about, FNC didn't care about these alternative topics during the Bush Administration, when most of whats currently happening was being put into place...

But now that a democrat is in office these topics are credible? how ironic...

FNC is only using beck to Blame it on the Democrats while ignoring the fact the Republicans are in on it as well...

Bottom line, had a Republican taken office this past election, FNC wouldn't be entertaining the topics Beck discusses.

Are you KIDDING?

I ONLY trust media anchors who make their money from ratings determined by the amount of viewers they get to watch...Olbermann, Beck, Maddow, and Hannity included...

whether they're from the Main Stream Media (which excludes FOX) or FOX (which excludes the MSM)...I trust any MAJOR NETWORK that BROADCASTS TO THE MAJORITY OF THE PUBLIC...I'll just call them for now the Main Stream Media or MSM (but technically FOX IS NOT part of this but to save time i'll include them since they are part of the conglomerate of major news organizations that broadcast to the majority of the public audience)...

So like I was saying I ONLY trust media anchors...and not "journalists" since they claim to be objective and do things like "present facts and only facts"...CAN"T TRUST these commies...

at least with editorial anchors like BECK, MADDOW, HANNITY, AND OLBERMANN you know what you're getting...usually predictable after the topic is introduced...their opinions that conform to their ideology...LIKE IT SHOULD BE...

I don't like just hearing facts and then having to think about things...I like getting both sides of the argument spoon fed to me...

HELL I DON'T even like the word news...since MSNBC and FOX don't give the "NEWS" they give interpretations of the news or in other words "editorials"...that's the way I like it...FOX EDITORIALS is what it should say...MSNBC "THIS JUST IN...BREAKING EDITORIALS" too...

GIMME more Glen Becks...please...except the girly crying...I'm not the most masculine man...but it is kind of gay (not that there is anything wrong with that) unless your NOT a girly man cry baby who is way too in touch with his feminine side...

I used to enjoy watching his show (Pre-2004). I had been in Japan for a few years and had not been able to watch his show. I've been stateside for about 2 months and have been watching on occasion. Yet, everytime I tune in I catch myself saying: what's this nonsense. He does not even look much like the same person. He's wearing a ton of make-up now or something. Overall, I feel like I am on the verge of an aneurysm caused by his whining. He used to complain and make a real big fuss over things. Now he just whines.

I caught the last 10 minutes of his show on Friday.. Talked about how next week on his show, like in the movie "The Matrix" where Keanu is offered the red pill to see whats really happening or the other pill to stay in ignorance of reality.., Glenn says we are going to take the pill to dive into whats really happening. He also asked to his viewers "is it me or is what is going on in the world and Washington seem like a puppet show?" Those are not direct quotes but close to what he said. I couldnt find the video and my computer sucks at watching videos. Anyways interested to see if someone else saw this cause I thought that was interesting he made those analogies!! By the way I think Glenn Beck is good to watch sometimes but other times I feel he makes stuff too dramatic for ratings.

Come on people. Beck is an entertainer. He is over the top because that gets peoples emotions involved and guarantees ratings. He gets more listeners and viewers who hate him than actually like him. It's the Howard Stern effect. The ones who hate you most get you the best publicity and ratings.
Negative posts,threads and long tirades against him actually get others involved and they tune in to see what the noise is about.

Too many intelligent people from both sides of the fence fall for this stuff.

I admire Glenn for his ability to take on the 'alternative' subjects and broadcast them for all to hear. He is over the top, but that is what makes him as a tv personality, interesting to watch.

Beck is mostly good.

He is giving out information on the FEMA camps and the North American Union and also the big superhighway the NWO wants to make.

Also he encourages people to be suspicious of the Government/ NWO and that is a good thing also. Paranoia is a positive.

He's a snake in the grass. The MSM is forced to deal with the stories that are all over the Internet and stealing viewers away from the boob tube. THe Boston Globe and other papers are going bankrupt. People don't want to read them having had a taste of truthful informaiton on the Internet.

Glenn Beck is the sleazy answer of the corrupt media to try to hang on to some viewers.

Alex Jones hates Beck and I do too. He pretends to be finally giving the truth and then when he gets people listening he says, oh dear, I was wrong about that, and here's why I've changed my mind. See, there are FEMA camps but they are good camps, not evil places to confine American citizens or to execute people.

Lou Dobbs does tell the truth, and he is the only one on the MSM that does--not the whole truth, but some of it, and he doesn't mix it with lies the way Beck does.

Glen Beck IS crazy. He might be certifiably insane. Sadly, this wacko is the ONLY person in the mainstream media who tells it like it is. He makes the most sense out of ANYBODY on news TV or talk radio. Sure, he's wacky and strange, but he knows what it is and tells it like he sees it and speaks the truth. Thats something that 99.99% of the people in the public eye CANNOT say.

I couldn"t agree with you more.

Bottom line is he is an entertainer who is fun to watch regardless of whether or not people agree with him or not.

It depends on the day. Somedays he's good. Somedays he's obnoxious.
I don't really like his style. But sometimes his content is very good.

In my opinion, Glenn Beck should be president . . . or Ron Paul's' Vice President, with Chuck Norris fulfilling all of the Secretary jobs.

Glenn is genuine and very sincere. A breath of fresh air to be honest and I for one am happy that he "gits it". I don't have access to his radio show but I do look forward to his FOX show every weekday. It's beyond me how anyone would think he's insane or a shill for the NWO or anything less than someone who really cares about the state of our Republic.

I honestly think that Beck is using topics like this that are out of the mainstream but that most people are at least semi concious of in an attempt to purposefully connect with the public in ways that most media professionals don't. That may sound nice, but I honestly feel that he is doing it with motivation of "I'm different than the others, and I feel the same things you do, and by the way I'm mormon."

Its obvious that he is very public about his belief system. Something always made me feel weird about him. Not that what he believes is necessarilly evil or that he is, but I always sensed an alterior motive for his effort to be "mr. truth", it doesnt seem like a pure passion for him. His passion seems swirled with a desire for us to indeed notice that yes he cares about the truth and by the way "i'm mormon, my religion does have credibility."

That being said, I dont think he is the best of stewards that we could place our confidence in for bringing serious topics into the mainstream that need to be in order to put imminent pressure on those who would like to supress information or technology for their own means. I would B rate him though... and thats tough for me to say, because apart from this I hope hope to be somewhat unbiased analysis, he freaking annoys the crap out of me!!!

Personally, I think all television personalities are just acts.

(Correct me if I’m wrong)

I think there is no way one man can utilize a major network to broadcast a personal live message. It just won’t happen. There is a delay. This delay exists so that in the event an unforeseen situation occurs; natural disaster, hostage situation or anchorman with a conscious problem doesn’t get displayed to the public before prior approval from the higher-ups.

The only time “news” will get aired live (aired prior to final approval) is when there is a race with other networks to deliver a breaking story.

I like Beck as much as I like any other actor. It is nice to see “fringe” stories get aired. I think it would be safer to assume the story was authored by Fox and not just by Beck. Maybe they wanted to experiment how we (or the goverment even) would accept the story and if we reacted negatively, they could fry Beck…and if there wasn’t negative reactions, they could keep Beck as the “loose cannon.”

Who really knows?

If you haven't seen this there's a good critique of glen beck. Starts at 3.39

I like Beck.

He tells it like it is. What Obama is doing is crazy when it comes to the Constitution.

Like Beck said, Ihe never expected a President to control banks and car companies and Americans citizens think that's fine. That's crazy.
