This is great publicity for Glenn Beck the entertainer, newsman and social commentator either way you look at this story, after all fame has it’s
I must confess I have never really watched Beck’s show though I have seen a handful of Youtube videos from segments of his shows.
Like all media personalities part of their appeal is their personality and news has become much less a journalistic endeavor in recent years than it
is rather a sales endeavor. Having a personality goes a long way in sales and in part the title of the article hints at the potential dangers of a
salesperson or spokesperson possibly being too good at their job.

Articles don’t just usher in the era where we are blatantly and unabashedly being told we are not capable of being responsible to frame our own
intelligent choices independently they proclaim the fact that this new era of supposed citizenry stupidity and gullibility is here.
Thank goodness like everything else the government and media likes to tell us, it’s not our fault, it’s the other guys! In this particular case
