I don't see you guys mentioning the other side however like Ed Shulz, Rachael Maddow, or Keith Oberman.
None of those guys have an audience as big as Beck's, plus I doubt those guys are the left's equivalent of Glenn Beck in terms of fearmongering, especially Maddow. At least you admitted the Glenn Beck was a right wing pundit though, so that's one thing you got right.

Add Chris Matthews to that mix and you've got the biggest collection of Nutjobs that ever hit the tube, if it were up to these people we'd be calling each other Komrade and doing Seig Heils every time Obama decided to do one of his Reality Shows.
I'll just let this post speak for itself.

The only one?? There are tons of people that predicted this would happen, they just didn't have a network to spread their words. Anyone who watched the news knew that the muslim world would explode eventually. And many economists predicted that the housing bubble would eventually burst.

The more venom and bile people respond with to a particular topic, the more I tend to dig deeper into the subject matter. Those that gnaw and gnash against Glen Beck are the very same people who make me pay attention to him. I can't believe that I'm the only one who thinks this.

What I can appreciate are facts, not baseless rebuttal and ad hoc hatred. If you can refute his facts, then do so. If you're here to simply call him names then you're doing your side a disservice. If your ideals makes more sense than Glen's, then I'm more than happy to back you up. Otherwise, take your hatred to the parking lot. There are people who will be more than happy to meet you there after school...

Do you appreciate Charlie Sheen more as a role model, father, and husband the more people spit bile and venom at him? Are you a huge fan of Obama due to all the hatred for him? How about Hitler? He gets a pretty bad rap. Does that make you a big fan?

So...the posters claiming he is a counterweight to what they consider left wing shills on MSNBC are finally admitting Beck is a right wing shill then? Or are they missing their own point? He was a financial drain on FOX and not because he was so "correct." He is sailing off into cheaper studios and not because he is so "correct." Much like Alex Jones, he burns through his audience. FOX news gave him huge reach and he had that many more to burn through that much more quickly. Radio stations dropped him, tv is dropping him.

When your entire career is around asking for money and impending doom, you eventually have to deliver or find new sheep. Beck has a history of asking for money for "charitable" events that turn our to help very few and promises the end of the world is coming very very soon. This is why you never hear or read "I love Glenn Beck and I have been following him since he worked with a monkey." What you see are his newest fans that had no idea who he was more than 5 years ago. He is for the most part done but will live on like Rush Limbaugh somewhere in the weeds, preaching to his on insipid little choir.


Gotta disagree to a certain extent... I'm not much on Beck because of the constant fear mongering and BS he mixes in with legitimate news. But, when you say radio stations dropped him, that's misleading. Syndication programs frequently get dropped from a station for a plethora of reasons other than ratings. In 2002 he had 47 stations, in 08 he had 300 and 1 year ago he signed his 400th station, and he's over that now. He's the 3rd highest rated radio show in the country. SO phrasing it like he's bombing on the radio is misleading.

As far as tv, that's another story. But you are still misleading people. Yes his ratings are down. But he's still always #1 in his timeslot on the news channels. He's 2nd on fox to the Oreilley factor. Cable news ratings are always low. As a matter of fact even with his ratings dip he's still the #2 program out of all the shows on the cable news networks, so poor ratings is relative. #2 isn't bad.

As far as charity, I don't know what his foundations and fundraisers give but per his tax returns he made about 14 million dollars last year and he gave about 3 million dollars to the Wounded Warrior Foundation, Tea Party and the 9/12 movement, those 3 being the largest recipients of his personal donations. 1/5th of your income is a pretty healthy donation.

Rush Limbaugh living on in the weeds preach to his insipid little choir.... Really? Can you exaggerate anymore? Hosting the #1 Radio Program in the country for how long now? Nothing little about that at all. Voted the most important radio host in America again? Good gracious....

Lastly, Glen Becks new thing, Glenn Beck TV. It's an interesting concept as it uses the same technology as the MLB network. He needs 50k subscribers to make more money than he did at fox, and I believe he hit that number already. But his major voice will still be his radio program.

It's funny that the motto of ATS is DENY IGNORANCE yet people can't see past their own opinions to state facts. I'm not a beck fan at all but the guy is the 2nd or 3rd most powerful radio personality on the political talk circuit. As far as a cable news personality he's been the biggest or the second biggest for quite awhile. ANd his new venture is already making him more money than Fox was paying him. And it's probably the future of many tv programs.

Just because you don't like the guy doesn't mean you have to mislead people and tell lies It really detracts from any point you attempt to make when you litter your post with so many untruths and exaggerations.

One of his top three charities is Glenn Beck?
Nice refutation. Your post is wholly disingenuous at best. Who exactly in the TEA party does he donate too and how much?

Why do you people hate him for it?


Because Beck doesnt tell the whole truth. He mixes halftruths with his own spin and calls it absolute truth. The problem with this (aside from the obvious spin) is that those halftruths are taken directly from Alex Jones. I cant even list another person where his material could have been taken. Almost everything the man says is ripped directly from Alex Jones. Lets not even mention the fact that the man was completely different 2 years ago. Beck is literally begging you to listen to him speak about issues that he flat out laughed about in prior interviews. I also have no idea why he has such a hard on for Israel, but really Glenn? Do we need to hear about it on every show?

I tried. I did not find any details about who in the TEA party Glenn Beck donates money to so what I did was I asked the person that said he did that for some elucidation. The lack of sources or links was kind of an issue.


dr jay did his leg work. great post, btw.


I do not see any legwork. What I see is a bunch of writing. I write long posts without sources too. Where is my praise?

So you think Glenn Beck donates money to Sarah Palin and she counts as one of hist top 3 charities? Please elaborate. The 9/12 project is Glenn Beck, not the TEA party. Why don't you know that?

Wow. You're really off the deep end, aren't you? How about you take a step back, take a breath, and think before you post a reply. I'm not right nor left. Those who think in such terms are doomed for failure. And personal attacks won't earn you any gold stars, but reasoning and logic will.

You want to recruit me to your team, you'll have to justify it.

well that was interesting.

alex jones, just only heard about him here on ats.

first time watching him speak.


having the same guests on diff talk shows is not unusual.

guest want too promote a book or agenda and make the rounds if they can.

so does alex have the real answers? i noticed he didn't drop any names behind the throne.

well he did mention the MIC and all the usual suspects. TPTB.


beck makes connections. the rest scratch their butts.

ok, those details might not be available, why? who knows but he might not care where every dollar goes in the tea party. where does it go, anyway?

9/12 might have his name on it, lol, so what, you expect him not to donate? is it illegal?

my bad thinking you meant t-party.

as for drj's stats and praise, you will get the same from me when i hear something as good!


why i didn't know about 9/12? heheh, forgot! sue me! lol!

besides, see above.

Is this yet another Sorros inspired thread to trash Beck? - seriously that guy has over a hundred staff members working full time to bring Beck down - intimidating advertisers, sponsers, spreading lies on forums like this.

Apart from being a bit of a religiotard - Beck is just fabulous! - who the hell else have you got on MSM exposing and calling out the conspirators?

The only reason Fox was happy to let their superstar go is because his brain has shifted from it's foundations. He has more in common with Charlie Sheen than he does other newscasters.

I hope he (both of them, actually) ends up ok. But right now he is lost in maze of his own mind.

1, What has he lied about?


Oh, where to start? How about this?

Lie number 1

No president has been sworn in without a bible.

I give you John Quincy Adams, Franklin Pierce, and Teddy Roosevelt.

2. Goebbels learned propaganda from the progressive movement in the west (namely Woodrow Wilson).

The Nazis learned the use of propaganda from the British after WW1. Mein Kampf and the speeches of Goebbels make this abundantly clear but facts won't stop Beck from demonizing the left.

3. Obama is a racist.

What utter nonsense. I am sure some people would love to believe he is but there is no evidence that he is racist whatsoever. Many people who say this could be hiding their own racism.

4. The left changed global warming to climate change to 'sell' the idea. Utter nonsense. It was a republican named Frank Lutz that help change the way we refer to the issue because climate change sounds less severe.

Lutz's speciality in his own words...


“testing language and finding words that will help his clients sell their product or turn public opinion on an issue or a candidate.”[


5. The Sherrod video wasn't on Fox before she resigned. Also, Sherrod is a socialist and a racist, seriously Beck?

He also didn't ''rush to condemn her' and demanded 'her side of the story be heard'. From the very beginning Beck promoted the out of context video put forth by Breitbart.

6. Obama proposed to increase the capital gains tax on every single American who invests.

He only proposed an increase on the upper income levels.

These are just off the top of my head. I wrote a 53 page paper on current media and propaganda. The lies of Glen Beck and Fox news took up a fairly large portion of that paper.

Here is some fact checking from politifact.

Of course Beck would say that politifact is a George Soros front since they confront his outright lies.

A lot of pants on fires

Beck is nothing but a rodeo clown and in his own words, "If you take what I say as gospel, you're an idiot."

He promotes an ideology and facts be damned. The man doesn't care about the truth or about the complex issues facing our country today. He cares about riling up his fanatical right wing audience and stroking his own ego.
