Glen Beck is a civil rights leader.....FOR THE WEALTHY.

F EVERYONE ELSE.

If he had any type of legitimacy he would go after the corporate corruption...but he won't. He paints all problems on "progressives" which is lunacy.

Anyone ever ask Beck how America "survived" it's insane communist tendencies during FDR up to Reagan? When tax rates on the wealthiest americans were anywhere between 70 and 90 plus percent?

HE"S A FRAUD and taking HEAT OFF WALL STREET.

He's damn good at it too...

Please tell me this fool Beck hasn't got a university?

If that be true, then you guys need to revolt to remove him from the airwaves. I really have to wonder why anyone would give any credence to a guy that hijacks Martin Luther King's speech day to elevate his status as some kind of self-styled leader to disillusioned people.

I have seen this guy fake crying, calling out Obama as racist and generally going quite mental on tv and radio. And yet he has become some kind of figurehead?

It is based on 4 questions asked of people at random over the phone. So the viewers of those other news sources answered 1 more question correctly than Beck folks......


So it proves nothing? Ok, then can you provide something to perhaps back up his claim about spending on research? I never claimed to have proof he did not spend what he says he spends. I am simply pointing out that we have an example showing his audience is not the most informed audience around. Not even close. If you having something to show differently, please do.

I'm watching FOX News right now. They have Civil Rights Leader Glenn Beck doing his show. I heard him say this, and was wondering if it was true.


"I have spent more money on research, more than anybody else in the history of broadcast radio"


- Civil Rights Leader Glenn Beck

Is this true? Can anyone provide any supportive evidence for this?



Apparently he's getting ripped off. He's paying a lot of money and getting nothing in return.

He says that "social justice" is a perversion of Biblical teachings...yet claims that he admires MLK - a minister who was a stalwart of Christian social justice, and was assassinated while leading the "Poor People's Campaign."


"I'm begging you, your right to religion and freedom to exercise religion and read all of the passages of the Bible as you want to read them and as your church wants to preach them . . . are going to come under the ropes in the next year. If it lasts that long it will be the next year. I beg you, look for the words 'social justice' or 'economic justice' on your church Web site. If you find it, run as fast as you can. Social justice and economic justice, they are code words. Now, am I advising people to leave their church? Yes!"
- Glenn Beck

"I never intend to adjust myself to economic conditions that will take necessities from the many to give luxuries to the few."
- Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, "Social Justice and the Emerging New Age" address at the Herman W. Read Fieldhouse, Western Michigan University, (18 December 1963)


Beck: President Obama is "addicting this country to heroin -- the heroin that is government slavery."

King: "We will place the problems of the poor at the seat of government of the wealthiest nation in the history of mankind."


Beck: "It's economic justice, which is socialism, which is forced redistribution of wealth, which is Marxism."

King: "Some will be called reds and Communists merely because they believe in economic justice and the brotherhood of man. But we shall overcome."

Beck: "Martin Luther King's dream is being massively perverted. ... It's time to set it right"

King: Communism "should challenge every Christian -- as it challenged me -- to a growing concern about social justice."

Beck: "[C]ivil rights marchers" weren't "crying for social justice"

King: "[W]e will be able to go this additional distance and achieve the ideal, the goal of the new age, the age of social justice."

See all my other posts....

Attack his claim with facts about his budget claim....

attacks against his viewers does not negate his budget claim....


must i say sloweeeerrr


I have seen all your other posts. All they are saying is that I should take Glenn Becks claim about himself at face value. I would like to see some cold hard facts on that. No one has brought any. We do have one little snippet that shows that if it is the case, the money is not well spent. This seems simple enough to me.

This is not a fact about his budget claim it is about his audience...

try to see the difference.....


I did not claim to have any facts about his budget. I am simply questioning the claim. I would love to see any and all facts about his research budget. What we have is annecdotal evidence that either he uses that research as toilet paper or his audience is not listening to him. It is just one thing that shows one thing about one thing. Maybe I should say it slower?

This is your response to my question

What evidence do you have to the contrary aside from him saying it? FACTS!


You were saying something about facts about his research budget?

Actually I am a woman. 38 years old, with my hubby since I was a teenager, kids, farm. A real person. I simply posted a current version of your survey. You attacked me. Is this how you treat everyone? YOUR SURVEY and MINE prove nothing....


I am not sure what you are talking about. What did you interpret as an attack? Please. I never meant to attack anyone. I am simply questioning and if you took anything I said otherwise, please let me know. I do not recall making any claims about your gender, age, marital status, or anything else. I also cannot find such a post. Please explain this attack to me. Maybe I just need to word things differently.

No, neither survey does prove anything. I never claimed they did.

As for how do I know... I'm taking his word for it, it is a little thing I like to call trust. Until he gives me a reason to doubt him I will believe every little thing that he says, if that means that people say I am stupid or uninformed so be it.


I think that pretty much ends any prospect of discussing reality right there. It is not my claim to disprove, it is his to prove. If Rachael Maddow made the same claim, I would be equally dubious. If I went looking for any evidence and only came across the same graph not showing her audience as the single most informed audience out there, I would then be lead to the same conclusion. It is either a BS claim or the audience is just not keeping up. Sorry but I do not just take anyone's word for it.

So i take that as a no? to all 3?

You need to truly watch Glenn... he will inform you about such things and more....

your issues are in trusting....

Why would he have to lie about that.... to wow his audience? trust me he doesn't have to boast for the audience...

if you have issues with trusting what he has to say.... perhaps you need to take his 40days and 40 nights challenge...

until he is proven as not spending as much as he claims...then i will take him at his word....

you keep alluding to that you don't believe him...but even you admit you don't have any proof of what he is or isn't spending ...you don't find "issues" with your own line of thinking?

Your of the mind it's cool to bash someone without any proof?And then turn it on the defenders of said person to prove you wrong....again you don't find issues with this line of thinking...
I feel sad for you, really i do...

This guy?


I will have to review and see what reckoning method he is using to make these preposterous claims.
That Glenn just doesn't let up. Pushes the proverbial envelope right off the anchor desk - I have to give him credit for persistence. What a showman! Ringling Bros have nothing on the Beckerhead.

Seriously though, I understand exactly what Glenn is saying and doing. He's diverting attention away from the Fed. That's it really, that's his job in a nutshell. Take pressure off the banker and place it on the left leaning leadership. He and Palin highjacked an entire movement.


Um this just shows you don't watch Beck or have any clue what he stands for. He constantly talks about how the Federal Reserve is unconstitutional and one of the worst things to happen to America. Also, he's not against Democrats, he's against Progressives. And Progressives come in the form of both Republicans and Democrats. Is he conservative? Yes, libertarian to be exact. But Conservative isn't a party, and conservatives are both Republicans and Democrats.

Tspark, if Glenn Beck is claiming something to be true, then he or his supporters are the ones who have the burden to prove his claims are true. It is not up to those who don't buy it to prove otherwise.

Second, I am in awe of your "just because you don't trust him doesn't make it false" argument. I think they should add this one to the list of logical fallacies.

I would be more impressed if he claimed to have devoted more hours toward research than any other broadcast journalist.
Not certain bribes, coercion and hush money count as "investments" thought they are expenditures for sure.

Maybe Glenn is counting his own purchases from Goldline???
Broadcast Journalist
www.wisegeek.com...

Once he or she has become more established, a broadcast journalist can choose to work in a specialized field. Fields such as politics, entertainment, and war reporting all need their own qualified broadcast journalists. The hours can be long and stressful. A great deal of time is spent researching stories, checking facts, and attending meetings and interviews. The amount of time spent on air will usually be far less than the work that goes on behind the scenes.


There are many types of research associated with broadcast journalism; Methodology, Qualitative and Stock, Investment Research and Career Research

Investment Research
Here on the Goldline page you will find all the FOX news people, Laura Ingraham, Monica Crowely, Mike Huckabee and Glenn Beck.

Go, Glenn. Until somebody proves him wrong, I'm fine with it. I've watched his show and he makes a better case for his beliefs than anybody in TV or radio that I know of. He makes a case and presents his evidence in pictures that even idiots can understand. I just don't get all of the GB hate. He loves his country, he is a disgusted with direction we are taking as anybody, he longs for the return of our core values (the citizens' core values, not the corrupt PTB).

I don't see where anything he says or does is against the common good out the country. I just don't get it.

The same goes for O'Reilly. Granted, he has caved since the big "O" became president and I lost respect for him in that respect but besides that he represents what he believes to be the common interests of the country. You can disagree with him but he is treated as poorly as Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews and he's nowhere NEAR as vile and hate-filled as those guys. In fact I would argue that he's not hateful in the least. He's a non-issue because in my opinion, he has lowered himself to the level of Larry King; a softball, Milquetoast interviewer. Larry King could invite Charles Manson on and make it seem like a Regis interview.

That's my view. Does't mean I'm right, I'm just confused.

Respect your opinion General but without the Battle Hymn of the Republic playing in the background it seems to lose some of the effect.
