I did a search and could not find this. I apologize if it's in the wrong place or already posted elsewhere.

I'm posting this video so that I can get a better idea of what ATS members think about Glenn Beck's "explanation" of the methodologies used by conspiracy theorists.

I'm angry at him for his absurd rhetoric. I'd trust AJ before Mr. Beck. He is no friend of the Constitution. Just my opinion.

My word of advice for conspiracy theorists is in the form of a quote by Aristotle:



"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it."


Here is the brief video. I'll try and provide a transcript if needed.

Glenn Beck just described exactly what he does on his show every single day (and what he used to do with his stupid chalkboards). Takes partial facts, and build crap on top of them.

Honestly, what a complete fool...he just told his audience exactly how he dupes them...but of course...they will still listen because he also knows his audience isn't very intelligent.

Glenn Beck IS a conspiracy theorist...how ironic.

Seeing what kind of case you are making, this clip is weak for the point. Glenn looks like he is pointing out liers come in the name of conspiracy.....and we all know they do that. Some conspiracy ideas are simply propaganda against something. Some are very good and are not trying to surf in on some issue to spread lies. You know like "right wing watch"....oooohhh spooky!

I'd like to pass a motion to move this thread into Deconstructing Disinformation.

Glen "Fake Tears" Beck is worse than pond scum, as even pond scum has some cool microbes within.

The man is a complete shill, worse than Alex Jones could ever aspire to be.

Thanks for your view. I just want to clarify something with you regarding your comment that the video was weak for the point. Did you mean for his point, or mine? Thanks again.

Well I see what you are saying now with a few more posts. However the OP didnt directly make the point to the vid that you thought Glenn was really up to this same sort of mixture.

Considering all the pictures being taken I am sure there is another side to this video clip that has been cutout. Do you really think he would video himself being done up and prepared with tears knowing full well it would end up on youtube like it just did. Like I said look for another side to the story I am sure it's there noone is that stupid not even Glenn Beck.

Either way, looking at both sides, I feel he is manipulating people's emotions regardless of whether they were fake tears or not.

Playing your heartstrings is the most powerful tactic of TPTB.

Critical Thinking And Emotional Intelligence




For example, if I FEEL fear, it is because I BELIEVE that I am being threatened. Therefore I am likely to attack or flee.

Glen Beck, like most celebrity talking heads offered up for our consumption, is an entertainer. Nothing more. Nothing less.

Sadly, this applies to every person you find the media clamoring to cover.

It is those who the circus refuses to speak to that are most likely not simply be concerned about ratings points, advertising revenue, and of course... the sanctity of their image.

Maybe someday the information-consuming populace will change. Until then, they will hook us in however they can... and it really really works!

I mostly fear those who would be willingly led by people like Beck and Jones... because many are like the religious zealots who will broach no argument against their glorious celebrity's position.

I guess if your a gullible person and believe eveything you see. Sorry I don't have that problem and I am guessing neither do you, but there are a lot of folks out there that do.

Personally ,they Glenn B AJ, and RL are all just radio personality's that need not be taking to heart, if you agree with them or disagree it is your choice, I do find them entertaining and that is what their job is. Jay Leno has more to say that they do when it comes to being serious, but when it comes to being political, David Letterman has the final say. did mean to say Bill Maher, but i do not have cable, so Dave will have to do.

There are lots of "Zombies" out for your brains...

I'm personally seeing a lot more people "waking up", for lack of a better term, to the lies and garbage being spit out by the MSM and other talking heads.

Glenn Beck is a corporation with lawyers, accountants, media consultants, A&R people, all designed to get rating/listeners so they can sell advertising. They know exactly who their demographic is and they give them the programing that they want; Stupid, conservative, neospeak and in turn the listeners support Depends, Viagra, and all the other stuff the near senile need and want. It's a proven media model. It's a business and Glenn is a showman and a damn good one.

www.forbes.com...

Glenn and his company live by this quote by H L Mencken.

"No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public."

Want to get rich like Glenn? Produce a show like Becks, put it up on public access TV and pitch it to a cable network. How hard can it be?

What a complete moron you are.

This video was taken while Beck was posing for a book cover. He was NOT fake crying for any other reason than for the scene for the cover which in fact was a parody of himself crying. HE WAS MAKING FUN OF HIMSELF.

My god. You people will just twist anything to make it fit your agenda.

Figured there was an explanation for it, actually I called it a few posts back. I am all for people hating other people but at least do it for the right reasons and have all your facts checked first. Tools.
