BH did a fine job here, by the way.
I go at odds with her at times, but most of the time I understand precisely where she comes from and respect her opinions and intellect a great deal.

But when I don't agree, the gloves come off.
It probably speaks more of myself than her.

I would also like to give props to SanchoEarlyJones.
For calling it precisely like it is. This is a man of integrity.

I like Glenn Beck. I dont agree with him on some things, but others I do.

But I agree wuth those who have stated before me. Anyone who takes those faces seriously needs a serious reality check. I have seen tons of people cry. I have sat in hospitals with family members and I have never seen any human being make such ridicolous faces while they cry in my whole life. It didnt even look like he was crying in some, it looked more like he was choking.

The people who hate him because he dares question the messiah Obama are just trying to hard now. They are making themselves look even more ridicolous and crazy, and even lame might I add. This was a lame attempt at smearing Beck. Im not a huge fan, and even I can pick up on that. They so want to put his head on a pike that they will sink to any low. Even making themselves look as ridicolous as Becks "crying" ( :lol
faces.

No, I really don't care that you attempted to make fun of Glenn Beck. What is wrong, is that you made it seem like he was making himself cry in order to, in someway, deceive people.


The part where he says something like, "I think my eyes may be getting used to this," comes off as saying, hey, I seem to do this enough to where I have built a small tolerance to the substance. It's obvious they have fun with it too based off what is being said. Fake tears for a fake man.

It could have been a comment made because of the duration of the photo shoot. Im sure it could take hours to do a photo shoot depending on how much work is put into it. I know scenes in movies can be redone for hours. So I think a Photo shoot could end up the same way. I would think thats what they probably meant. But thats just me, I dont have raging hard mega boner for taking Beck down.

Booyah!

Glenn Beck would be the first to tell you that he is an entertainer, a talk show host. A conservative leaning one yes. Why can't he be humorous and expose the corruption of our government and the quiet fundamental change of our nation into a dictatorial fascist social democratic State..?

A little vics in the eye can't change the truth when told...

An ad hominem argument has the basic form:

Person 1 makes claim X
There is something objectionable about Person 1
Therefore claim X is false

Why attack the person? Maybe because Beck has exposed the web of the Apollo Alliance, helped to reveal the corruption in ACORN, etc?

But hey, let's not look into what he presents to us as information to be researched, let's make fun of him so we can all ignore him completely.

That's the point of this thread isn't it?

Why a photo shoot of him crying? To show his personal expressions, or a family Christmas card? He sure is trying hard to look sad. I always thought you were suppose to smile in pictures. I've never watched him, but watching this makes me laugh, mostly at those ridiculous faces but a photo shoot to show tears, then find out the tears are brought on by vapor rub, lol, that's funny. Photo shoots can last hours true, but why one of him crying, no one cries for hours with those type faces...lol, this man is TBS very funny, he cracks me up....booyah my friend

I am not a Beck fan at all but this is obviously just for a photo shoot.

Ummm...
We have just seen Beck practice his crying. Not only that, but they were taking photos of this practice.
We have also seen video of him crying on air.

He is having to practice it like an actor.

Ummm again. I can't believe I am about to lose it with people who normally I would agree with over what I feel is obvious.

Let me just say this, and then I am going to have to drop my participation here more than likely.
I am usually first in line to echo nearly everything Beck has to say. However, he is simply playing good cop at this point.
Good cop, bad cop. The end result is the criminal is still caught.

Yeah, he is saying what you want to hear.
But I promise you, FOX wasn't saying what you wanted to hear 4 years ago unless you were a blind, warmongering fool.

Although I noted that I echo what Beck is saying, I would probably revise that to say that it is actually Beck who is echoing what *I* am saying.
Playing to my emotion. Only so it can be controlled through yet ANOTHER scandal waiting to happen.

People REALLY, REALLY, REALLY need to wake up to the game... And quick.

I believe it was for a book cover. Thats what I saw others post.

Still the faces looked and screamed of fakeness. Anyone could clearly tell this wasnt meant to be taken serious.

Look at the ones where he had his tongue sticking out. He looked like Jabba the Hutt when Leia was strangling him. Thats just ridicolous. Like I said no one cries like that, ever. If they did I would be saying in my mind "awe that poor person, what has them so upset", But I would be saying "eww thats gross whats wrong with you, why do you cry like that eeww".

Anybody can turn anything around and make it what they want it to be. Bottom line is its just a photo shoot. Yes Glenn Beck is at times insane but he does speak the truth also. People need to lighten and and just see things for what they are. Sometimes Venus is just Venus.

It was for this photo which was a publicity photo. Which if you know was Beck making fun of those that give him a hard time about his crying....

I could rephrase that and say: "Some people need to just lighten up and see things the way the media wants you to see them."

But that sounds absurd.
But does it?

Of course we all know this to be true. But not when a media-type actually follows along with our thought process and shown to be a shill just like the rest of them.

DO NOT TRUST THIS MAN. DO NOT TRUST FOX. DO NOT TRUST NBC. DO NOT TRUST CNN. DO NOT TRUST SKY NEWS. DO NOT TRUST MSNBC.

I could go on and on.
Do not trust these people.

I want to buy the book just to look at the face they choose, lol I love a good laugh at a goofy face, I think they should make a collage of the various faces they captured, he sure is goofy looking, looks more like he ate some big greasy burrito from Taco Bell. I wanna see someone make those faces while they cry, even though I would probably pop them a good one I tell you what.



Got Milk?

Yeah... as much as I can't stand Beck, equating this photo shoot that was clearly tongue-in-cheek with dishonest emotional displays isn't fair.

And trust me, I hate the guy, lol.

Yeah and apparently they have to coach him into a cry when he does it on air regularly, right?
Come on people!
The guy has cameras in his face all the time.

If they wanted a TRULY genuine photo for his book, they could have just chose to take a still shot of him while he was sobbing LIVE.

If it were real, that is.

Instead, they have to give him VIX to provoke the emotions.
If he was really that concerned, he could provide tears at the drop of a hat.

All they would have to say is "pour out your feelings about socialism in america."

Apparently it is enough for him on his show, but not enough during a photo-shoot?

We are talking irrationalities here!



This isn't hard to understand.
