www.cbsnews.com...


(CBS) Updated 6:02 PM ET The Huffington Post has pulled a column written by a liberal blogger who offered $100,000 for a sex tape or other potentially damaging information about conservative commentator Glenn Beck. In the piece posted earlier today, Beau Friedlander, the former editor-in-chief of Air America until it closed in 2010, put out a bounty on the Fox television personality. "The new conservatives are true believers in the "One Right Way", and Democrats only rarely agree on the one best way to go. But we can all agree that Fox News is a bad influence on America. It is time to pop the tea baggers' favorite balloon (so what if it will be replaced by another?), and with that in mind I hereby offer to negotiate a $100,000 payday to the person who will come forward with a sex tape or phone records or anything else that succeeds in removing Glenn Beck from the public eye forever. I am not offering the cash myself, but I will broker the deal and/or raise the money for what you bring to the table. (And it better be good.)" "If you have the goods, or if you want to contribute to a slush fund to buy more takedowns (probably not tax deductible), *SNIP*


This is despicable.......I was just talking earlier about how the left LOVED attacking conservatives, and would do ANYTHING they could to try to silence them in any way.

To me this is indicative that these people are SCARED of the conservative movement and the threat we pose to their progressive agenda....

He went on to say



"I was actually trying to mimic what I saw as the way right wingers go about these matters, and by misapprehending the way they do things, I went too far.


Im sorry, when have people like Glenn ever gone to extremes like THIS to to take on ANYONE on the left?

Because he says what they are doing is socialist? Because he backs up his statements with AUDIO from these people? AND video? How is this ANYTHING like what this man tried to do?

Like FOX news or not, they dont use "personal" sabotage to get their point across....

This is vile and disgusting........and further drives home my conclusion that these people will resort to ANYTHING to bring down those they deem a threat.....

Flame on.......

A Glenn Beck sex tape? Wow, if that exists it might actually help his reputation, assuming he's not crying in it, or something...


Serious note: you're right, this is underhanded and low-class act. Typical blogger in many respects (liberal or conservative) to hide behind the computer and spouts off for others to do the dirty work and than profit from it. Leeches.

Of course they will resort to anything, all the scum in the politics game (both sides of the isle) are fond of such measures, they pretty much will do anything to get their way including stuff like this. Personal sabotage is not something strictly utilized by the left side of the spectrum, the right is just as guilty of character assassination moves, especially during election season.

It is a lot easier for one to attack another person to shut him up than it is to attack the ideas.

It is easier to find dirt, exaggerate dirt, or outright make dirt up than it is debating whether or not that person's ideas are wrong.

LOL yeah i agree, im more than willing to bet hed pay double that not to watch his OWN lol .......


But in all seriousness, this is just horrible, we HAVE to get away from this sort of thing....

We need to be able to debate the issues with out trying to tear people apart in their private lives.......

Debate what is pertinent , and leave the rest alone

What is the FINAL fallacy that the desperate use?

Argumentum Ad Hominem

Wiki AAH

Specifically-



Ad hominem abuse

Ad hominem abuse (also called personal abuse) usually involves insulting or belittling one's opponent in order to invalidate his or her argument, but can also involve pointing out factual but ostensible character flaws or actions which are irrelevant to the opponent's argument. This tactic is logically fallacious because insults and even true negative facts about the opponent's personal character have nothing to do with the logical merits of the opponent's arguments or assertions.


Yeah, the leftists are getting FRIGHTENED.

All the logical fallacies are coming out of the bag.

I made an estimate thread on the rally size.

NO ONE disputes my evidence, they just go on and on how they hate Beck and then post links to CBS estimates. CBS gave a name of a company that "SUPOPOSEDLY" made the estimate.

Still waiting on a reply to an email I sent them.

I may have to send some emails to some of their customers if I do not here back very soon.

I hate it when you cannot get the information from the source.

That is the way these disinformation MSM trolls are. They seperate the information from themselves, that way if their is a mistake or problem later, they can blame it on them.

Oh well, glad to see them imploding.

Look at the situation, if they were not going to these lengths, I would worry.

Let me see, there is something that comes to mind. Oh yeah.

When in combat, if you are RE ACTING, you have ALREADY lost.

They just do not KNOW IT YET!

If you cannot debate:

SILENCE

Marginalize

Demonize

Play the HATERS card (Doesn't matter, insert racist or "ophobia" here).

It's silly crap just like this that will shut down or dramatically change the structure of the internet.

If this had been a right wing nutcase looking for crap on (pick any demoncrat); there would be wholesale outrage on the network news and new calls for Obama's kill switch.

This is much more serious than a prank or some dumb ass liberal. The right and far right bloggers better not raise to the bait for retaliation, that will be what the main stream media will cover.

I agree, the best thing that glenn and the media can do is laugh about it and marginalize the ACTION of doing this.......

You laugh off people enough and usually they will go away.....

I agree tho, there seems to be this huge double standard.......if the right were to do something parallel to this, the MSM would be on FIRE with reports, people would be calling for their heads on a platter, resignation and blood of their first born....

The hypocrisy in America is ridiculous, I think both sides need to knock it off, debate the issues and whats valid......

Kind of like how ironic it was that Al Sharpton was marching after the Glenn Rally........Al was matching in honor of MLK and his speech that day, which was on TOLERANCE........

Sharpton then goes on to call Glenns rally "A bunch of angry white people"

Im sure MLK was honored to have you make a statement like that in honor of his I HAVE A DREAM speech on tolerance and hope

I wouldn't mind seeing a ''take down tape'' of Sarah Palin ''in action''.

Glenn Beck... Not so much.


Seriously, though, this quote is quite nauseating:

"I was actually trying to mimic what I saw as the way right wingers go about these matters, and by misapprehending the way they do things, I went too far.''

Notice, how even when this blogger has to shamefacedly own up to his impropriety, he still tries to blame the other side ( his comment about right-wingers ).

He almost seems to be trying to suggest that the ''right-wingers'' are partially responsible for his faux pas, and should share the blame !


Just to add, that I don't go in for this right-wing/left-wing nonsense, and I would have commented similarly, if it had been a right-wing blogger being a fool, and blaming the ''left-wingers'' for his indiscretion.

Don't you guys understand that Beck himself is behind this to create hysteria?


Man! some of you are so naive!

Yes this is despicable and totally tasteless I agree.

But it's politics and that's just the way the game is played by both sides.

Conservatives resort to these methods and tactics just as much as liberals do and Fox News are as guilty as anyone, just remember the Bush/Kerry election.
(Yes, I know 2004 already seems so long ago.)

The best thing one can is to realize that the whole system is rubbish and detach oneself from it.

Oh, should have included a mention of the people wishing Palin was on the plane in Alaska.

Typical hate from the left as their bid for totalitarian control is falling apart.

Actually glad ol Bama became president.

Just shows HOW FAR these people will go.

Tyrants are tyrants, they sooner or later show their TRUE colors.

really? and your proof to this would be? ...............waiting..........

still waiting............

nothing.........didnt think so

I love how you deny that this person is responsible, nono it MUST be Glenn Beck behind it, it COULDNT be the relentless bashing by the liberal media...

Granted, like ive said before, the right is guilty of attacking too, but ive yet to see anything like this.......

yes it MUST be conspiracy from Glenn to muster..........ahh.....oh....well I guess it wouldnt have done much good for him to do that now would it?

I remember the election, but and yes conservatives went after Kerry , but there was never anything on this level

They attacked his credibility , they went after his politics, but they didnt try to get dirt on him about his private life , or anything else to SLANDER him......

This thread was the funnest read all day
thanx
( I mean that sincerely heh heh )

Really, on Reddings news review radio show on GCN last night (sunday)they played Beck saying dumb stuff and they played tapes of Beck saying he never said that same dumb stuff...
So it's only a matter of time before ol' Glen makes his own shoot Glen Beck in the foot tape.

If you listen closely
you should be able to spot the 10 percent evil Disinfo in his ranting.
