I have to admit, Glenn Beck is easy to listen to and he comes across as genuine. That is what sells his show. It is a kind of news/reality show/therapy type of thing. The scary part is there are people out there who believe what he says, verbatim.

Those of you who hate Glenn Beck need to get a life. If you don't like him don't watch him, and don't call his followers names. This guy is a patriot.
"The FBI agents who were actually chasing those spies have told me that McCarthy hurt their efforts because he trumped up charges, unfairly besmirched honorable Americans and gave hunting spies a bad name."
Kessler said the release of secret Cold War files under the Venona Project confirmed that there were Soviet spies in the U.S. government.
"The problem was that the people McCarthy tarnished as Communists or Communist sympathizers were not the real spies," Kessler wrote.
"The cause of anti-communism, which united millions of Americans and which gained the support of Democrats, Republicans and independents, was undermined by Sen. Joe McCarthy of Wisconsin," wrote William Bennett, who was the conservative secretary of education under President Ronald Reagan.
"McCarthy addressed a real problem: disloyal elements within the U.S. government. But his approach to this real problem was to cause untold grief to the country he claimed to love," Bennett wrote in his book "America: The Last Best Hope."

Your source is a psychotic leftist rag and you claim to not be a liberal? The "truth to power" folks couldn't tell the truth if it slapped them in the face. These are the moral geniuses who praised the efforts of a stone cold, hate America, islamic terrorist.
Sorry McCarthy's name will be rehabilitated one day, when all the liberals have been put to shame and their poisonous philosophies discredited.
As for Beck, his statistics are widely reported and well understood by those who care.
This analysis should wake anyone up who clings to the self destructive notion that Islam is the religion of peace.

Dude, if you don't trust his source, you can double check for yourself...the clip is available to the public
You saying his "statistics" are understood by those who care is laughable. If his stats are wrong like in this case, and his followers still eat it up...well...that only shows one thing:
THEY ARE BLIND BRAINWASHED SHEEP!!
I mean, you're accepting things as fact that are clearly wrong...just because it fits your warped world view. Sad really, and makes you look pretty stupid too imo.
