Fox news ratings were getting rocked hard after 06'
Glenn Beck is currently #2 in ratings I believe?
Some of you are just straight up PARANOID! Yes fox news is in general not to be trusted, and I am skeptical about Glenn just like most of his fans
are, because most of his fans know how corrupt fox news is!
HOWEVER, Glenn Beck whether you trust him or not is surely one thing...consistent.
The Glenn Beck watchers are not saying they trust fox news. We are saying We like the type of news Glenn Beck talks about. Fox news is doing what all
companies are doing right now. Covering there a**es and keeping as much money as they can in there pockets
News Ratings: www.tvweek.com...
Overall Ratings: www.ihatethemedia.com...
As you can see, Glenn is doing something for Fox News. He is helping make them the dominate news source, and I have a feeling if things continue his
ratings will soon be #1.
Quit brainwashing yourself and LOOKING for something that is clearly and logically not there.
[X] Deep Recession
[X] Ratings = Money
[X] Glenn Beck = Ratings
[X] Media dominance
[X] Money = Good thing for a business
Your acting like everything Fox News does is to manipulate the people only makes you look closed minded.
I don't trust Fox News. I Trust Glenn Beck with a big level of skepticism.
EDIT: Sorry If I am assuming wrong that this topic is basically another Glenn Beck vs. Fox News Corruption thing. Though I'm pretty sure it is.

BECK is consistent - ly manipulative
The other day had had the show happy fascism...
HIS LIPS kept saying "I am not comparing Obama to Hilter"... - MEAN while they are flashing graphics of OBAMA and HITLER edited together - same
I'm not calling you fat... ( while I puff my cheeks out and try to double my chin)
BECK should just say Obama is Hitler if thats what he believes.
He PRETENDS to be NON partisan, yet he is extremely partisan...
He is entitled to his opinion - but he does not only give straight opinion, he slips it on the listener in a very manipulative way, twists his motives
and guides the viewer to
a specific thought - and then he reenforces that thought .I have known a few - BECK is pro manipulator.
Watch the first video - do it - challenge yourself if you are such a believer sir...
Then maybe you will see there is fine distinction between CLOSE MINDED and further informed.
