    It seems that it started long before. As some posters and I noted, we occasionally listened to him, in the beginning, while on radio only.
    Then fame set in, and he has since been cheered on by sheeple who blindly nod at his every word. Some sort of positive reinforcement, I suppose.
    Fame corrupts, and Beck is no exception. He and his followers tell themselves that he has a mission of revealing truth...as they see it.., but what is really happening is some sort of preaching to the choir, stirring the pot, agitating...
    Of course, unless he/they are calling for physical unrest, its their right to speak/listen as they wish, and, not being a journalist, Beck isn't obligated to adhere to facts.
    Does that sum it up?

    Only if you think that those that listen to Beck's show are somehow less intelligent than yourself, which you obviously do. A trademark of the liberal progressive by the way is to adopt that kind of self inflated sense of intellectual superiority.

    I think that the more apt question on subjects like this are why is it that these threads seem to predominately involve liberal posters bitching and moaning about what some right leaning pundit says? How come if liberals are supposedly so intellectually superior and enlightened and introspective that they never seem to rail like this on jack ass hacks from their own stable of belief that make incredibly stupid, and outrageous statements. Tubby Eddy Schultz comes to mind, so does Bill Mahr. Both are liberal hack flame throwers that seem to get a pass when they make idiot statements.

    No, it seems that when that happens you get the 'oh, he was taken out of context', or some other dismissal and NO accountability.

    The so called tolerance of liberals, and liberals that don't want to reveal themselves as such, probably out of a sense of guilt, and shame, are among the most intolerant when it comes to those that disagree with their own narrow mind.

    Liberals and progressives here criticized Ed Schultz weeks ago when he was suspended for making crude remarks about a female conservative.

    So you are wrong.

    There are many shows, political and otherwise, that if someone watches... I consider myself automatically superior of mind. Surely, there are shows about which you feel the same. This is neither unique to the show or as a concept. Everybody does it (exhibit a: Springer).

    Want some more of my list?

    American Idol, any reality show, anything produced in europe (I'd rather watch a south american soap opera than a euro-washedup-celeb show)...

    If as the article suggests (I have no idea who "Glenn Beck" is) his US radio show is no longer on Fox - is that not simply because his views are unpopular or have driven away advertisers or are just not part of the mainstream broadcasting?

    If the Guardian article is true - this passage below from the OP link simply suggests he is desperately trying to be controversial to gain listeners on whatever news network his views are now found.

    Sagging ratings, a string of damaging remarks and an exodus of advertisers combined earlier this year to end Beck's tenure on the US cable network Fox News.
    So, what do "liberals" and intellectual superiority have to do with this?

    You must be new here. It is the same old game.

    Come up with a recent sex scandal involving a Republican and within 10 minutes somebody has named 20 Democrats doing the same over the last 20 years. You can simply change that to a Democrat in a sex scandal and immediately you will find a list of 20 Republicans.

    The one thing about this thread is how Beck and so many have used the term Nazi so freely. I realize Beck has never been in war nor had their lives touched by the crimes committed by the Nazis to innocents. But to call these youths Hitler youth shows you what a little man he is.

    I never liked it either when people compared Bush to Hitler. It simply shows their complete ignorance and their sheltered life experiences. In the life of the USA the current population is probably the biggest pile of wussies to ever live here. Thinking they have is so bad.

    Oh give me a break....So I guess if a conservative is being criticized out of possibly, and most likely remarks inflated to make hay, or taken out of context, then conservatives are supposed to shut up and take it eh? That is a great one sided world you have invented in your mind sir.

    No, I did not say anything about less intelligent, and if it came across as such, I apologize.
    People are prone to being awestruck. Just as many intelligent liberals think of Obama as the second coming, many of those who like and listen to Beck seem to take his every word as gospel.
    And for the record, I am far from being a liberal. I am an independent thinker, and disillusioned by those who make strive and unrest a career, politicians and talking heads alike.

    Becks radio show was never a part of Fox radio broadcasting...Shows what you know of his show....

    If the Guardian article is true - this passage below from the OP link simply suggests he is desperately trying to be controversial to gain listeners on whatever news network his views are now found.
    And the Gaurdian is objective when it comes to American right leaning radio shows like Beck? I think not.

    So, what do "liberals" and intellectual superiority have to do with this?
    I was addressing a couple of posters in this thread who seem to think that if someone listens to Beck's show they are, and I quote....

    He and his followers tell themselves that he has a mission of revealing truth...as they see it..
    And then Capt America who on page 25 says this...

    Now regardless of the fact that Capt America seems to not know that Becks show no longer appears on tv, the slam against the people that listen to his radio show, or read his website is clear...Their is disdain for these fellow Americans that is devolved into some pretty nasty statements that if not online would provoke a situation that these keyboard tough guys may not be able to handle....Why not turn it down a notch and find out first if the context of the statement was what is being portrayed? or is that just too tough, and some find it easier to be putz's!
