I have watched Glen Beck since he was on CNN. When he went over to Fox, I continued to watch him, from day one, and yes, I DVR'd the program, so I
could watch it when I got home from work. Since I am interested in history, especially American History, I paid close attention when to Beck and his
guests when they were discussing it, especially when the dicussion concered the founding fathers and their ideas.
I didn't take Becks word for anything, nor did I take the word of his guests who were teachers of history. I have a computer, a library card, and
access to several book stores. I checked the facts. Closely. Guess what? There's a whole lot of American History you didn't learn in school.
Same with political science.
I never caught Glen in an outright lie. If he was wrong about something, he admitted it. He predicted the "Egyptian spring," and the ensuing
confusion and uprisings in the Middle East. He predicted the double dip recession we are going through, way back when every one was telling us it's
getting better. (In spite of unemployment hanging at or around 9%.)
Don't believe me? Check the facts. Those who take someone's word on something without checking facts is either ignorant or an idiot. I am
However, the liberals and progressives who hate Beck will only take something someone hands them, out of context, and present it as fact, without
looking up the context are either ignorant, or idiots. I suspect they are both.
