I'm with you Whaaa! Isn't it funny how when GB lies and is caught red-handed he becomes an "entertainer". I don't mean getting facts wrong either. Misleading people through lies in order to further the NWO rightwing agenda is not entertainment. How many people watch GB and think he is just making things up to entertain them. Give me a break. You think they don't believe what he is saying, look at the tea partiers.

awhile ago someone here posted links where Beck said two absolutely opposite viewpoints with the same assurance. in one he said that he almost died because of American healthcare and bad doctors and that he wouldnt trust his life with American docs again. in the other he said "American Healthcare was the best in the world".

No, Glenn Beck is an entertainer. He's not a politician, he's not an elected official, and he has no impact on American politics.


Just like Rush Limbaugh is an entertainer, yet the whole Republican party kneels before him. These so called entertainers have huge political power due to their listening base. The same base which tends to be the conservative voting base.

I remember this photo. That man is crying because of his land being polluted and poisoned by industrialists that care more about profits than keeping this great land clean for future generations. This man is crying for valid reasons not like that weenie Glen Beck.

Is he a mama's boy or just a man who cares deeply about the rape and pillage of his own country.

The difference is....Glen Beck is playing to a targeted demographic, scripted and directed by men more interested in selling Depends, viagra and packaged food. And the weak minded believe the hype, buy the products and buy into the propaganda and become devotees. Glen just like Rush and the rest of em, are just means to an end, fostered by, very well paid media exectives in some posh NY office, high above you and I.

It's a brave new world, welcome to the monkey house.


Schools out!

Perhaps but I prefer Beck lies to Nobama/Dumbocrates lies anyday.

And, as far as Rush being in the entertainment business---no kidding.... Tell that to the Dems as they are the one proclaiming Rush is the leader of the Republican party... (which, by-the-way, makes us laugh even harder).

why on earth would anyone take anything said by the MSM, or any pro government as any kind of evidence to back anything up, is beyond, me, the facts they tell you, the control you with, hmm their sheep i believe it is called now day. To use MSM or anything like that is just playing in to their hands. which is pretty much what Glen says i believe. :0) BTW, why dosn't anyone point out the things he has been saying for years that have come true? I am beginning to think ATS is a site full of disinformation, hmm now i wonder why that could be.

Say what you will. Beck has opened the eyes of a nation that was hoodwinked by a candidate that campaigned on the foundation of change and hope from the center of his declared party. Sadly, Obama has revealed his true allegiance to the progressive left and his Chicagoland cronies that built him. You mean nothing to Obama. The sooner you realize that, the better off you will be.

He is only driven by his personal agenda. That is obvious by his complete ignorance to the current and bleak plight of the American people. The only dose of hope served up by Obama has been dished out to his financial backers and handlers. Hence the pending Christmas Eve vote on Obamacare. It couldn't wait until after the Holidays??

Beck has succeeded and The People,dems and reps. alike, are now asking the questions and demanding answers from their elected officials. That reality is a tough pill to swallow for our supposed representatives that are not used to being challenged in this manner. The end to the D.C. status quo is on the horizon as a new third party is poised to rise over all of the swill on capital hill.

Once again, Glenn Beck is an entertainer.


I hardly see the reporting of death camps, or references to nazism as entertainment. Im sure common sense would take us to believe accusations of these in the white house is nothing laugh about. They are serious accusations as Beck tries every day to have us believe.


He was performing the same act on radio


Glenn Beck was an opinion radio show host, in which he discussed his views of things in an effort to argue his views on matters. I dont see that as entertainment, I see it as political debate which I take seriously.


Beck is successful at what he does,


Glenn Beck is successful at making a buck off folks, and this somehow justifies his lies and distortions right? The same "successful and popular" excuse was made for fox news to some how justify their lies and distortions. "If they have millions of viewers, its got to be accurate right!" and then the same folks turn around and complain about CNN and their "popularism".

If Glenn Beck was an entertainer, he'd be hosting his show on an entertainment network, not a news network discussing how loved ones will be killed by Obama policies. I dont know what kind of mentality you have to view such serious accusations as "entertainment" but I certainly dont, especially considering its being hosted on a news network proclaiming itself as "fair and balanced".

Its more loophole excuses from your side. I dont know howmany times one can make up explanations about this mans lies.

Sigh

When are people going to learn that Fox News is the most deceitful propaganda outlet in the entire country?

"But Kaytagg, they cover stories that other news ignore!" No they don't. They make up fake controversy and intentionally misleading statements to fool their gullible audience who seem to be the only people who aren't "in on the joke."

I guess this isn't too surprising, considering the group of people Fox targets is the same group that can't tell whether Steven Colbert is being satirical or serious.

Q: How many Fox News viewers does it take to change a light bulb?
A: Zero. They'd rather sit in the dark.

I love this.

The bankrupt over-spending imperial corporate run war machine we are changing into will be so much different from the bankrupt over-spending imperial corporate run war machine we've been for the past 60 years.

Mandating everyone give more money to insurance companies is a great leap forward. I just don't have enough reasons to fear being tossed into prison in my day to day life as it is.

Where's Reno? I think a nice siege would do some good about now.

Anyone who sees "change" in any of this hasn't been paying attention.

The gov keeps growing the middle class keeps shrinking and nations keep getting invaded.

I sure as well know where the divide is, but people can't point the finger in the right direction because they will look like fools, their ideology will be dead and Socialimists will rule the world

Once I heard that from Glenn Beck that FDR invented the lobbying industry.


Intense lobbying began between 1869 and 1877, during the administration of President Ulysses S. Grant.[2] The most influential lobbies wanted railroad subsidies and a tariff on wool. At the same time in the Reconstruction South, lobbying was a high intensity activity near the state legislatures, especially regarding railroad subsidies. The term itself came from Britain to describe approaches made to Members of Parliament in the lobbies of the House of Commons.

In the Progressive Era reformers frequently attacked lobbyists as corrupting politics.[3]

But Kaytag, you are obviously in that phase of life that Colbert seems witty and enlightened. You will out grow it ... trust me.

He's nothing more than a cynical weasel in a man suit. Kinda like Letterman used to be... Now he's an old cynical weasel in a man suit.

BTW Kaytag, Another moronic twist on real news ... How many nutjobs does it take to screw in a lightbulb...? Goto BTS to find out...

FOX News and Beck have a leg up on debunkers. Know why? Because they can't make this crap up. CNN reports nothing! They are only bringing Amanpour back temporarily because she is the only credibility they still have under contract. Lou Dobbs quit. Lou was likely waiting on an offer from FOX.

Everyone of quality at CNN went to FOX. Amanpour has been globe trotting since the first gulf war. She hasn't caught on how bad off CNN has become. Enough said.

Jokes are on y'all
You know whom you is...

Oh, I agree. That hasn't changed. But there have been changes. If there weren't, Glenn Beck wouldn't be cryin' and lyin' like he is.

Most of the things Glenn Beck says are so unbelievable and outrageous and obviously false you would think more people would see through him.

People listen to him, not because he makes them think, but because he gives them targets for their unfocused and often unconscious hatred of anything they don't understand, or care to understand.

I think it was P.T. Barnum who said, "Nobody ever went bankrupt by underestimating the intelligence of the American public."

Some attribute that quote to H. L. Menken, but never the less it's more true today than when it was first coined.

And along those same lines, here is a quote not lost on Fox or Glen Beck producers and advertisers.

"People can easily be persuaded to accept the most inferior ideas or useless products."
Bartleby

I will have to defend Doc Velocity on this issue, Glen Beck is an entertainer and nothing he says should be taken as the truth, EVER.


As evidence of this I give you...
