    I love how you make the great leap of assumption that anybody who spouts political opinion on a TV show is responsible for the actions of someone watching or listening. That a cute tactic of convenience and 'tranference' to Beck of the responsibility of the actions of another. Let's say, for argument sake that this guy is judged to ultimately be insane. Is Beck still guilty? How about if he is judged to be sane? Still guilty? The reason I ask is by your standard the person committing the act never bears full responsibility for the personal consequences of their own behavior or lack thereof. That's an insane position to paint yourself into, because if that is accepted as correct, then the state must automatically censor broadcast speech and where is our freedom of speech then. IF there ever was a video that was produced and directed to drive home one narrow opinion...that was it. You keep sending your money to Media Matters to support the fascist state of your dreams, because that is the end solution for what you advocate on behalf of. This is the same sick liberal/leftie bad joke as after the AZ Rep. was shot by that head-case. Oh woe is we! The right-wing radio is using terms to direct and suggest violence like "target groups" and "crosshairs" and such. Were you also bent out of shape about this:
    Eyeblast.tv
    and notice how Dreyfuss weasels about to equivocate that there is a nice way to wish someone you hate was dead. This guy has been making the rounds speaking as if he just came down for the Sermon on the Mount and is spreading the wrong message, but it works. Libs pay attention to their fantasyland idols of worship and those idols know it too.

    On Wednesday, tensions between the White House and its media critics, real or imagined, threatened to rise even higher. White House spokesman Ari Fleischer took a slap at "Politically Incorrect" host Bill Maher, who called U.S. military strikes on faraway targets "cowardly." Fleischer blasted Maher, claiming it was "a terrible thing to say," and didn't stop there, noting "There are reminders to all Americans that they need to watch what they say, watch what they do, and this is not a time for remarks like that; there never is."

    On the face of it, these moves by the Bush administration to discourage media criticism don't seem to make much sense. By the time of the Clinton interview, for instance, polls were showing unprecedented public support for Bush, which has since only increased. And at the time, all Clinton had to say about Bush was that he supported him, and urged the rest of the country to do the same.

    But this White House has developed a particularly tense, mutually distrustful relationship with members of the news media, one that has only seemed to deepen since the Sept. 11 attacks. This relationship seems to be focused specifically on the White House's political and communication staffs (it's virtually impossible to imagine Bush knowing anything about the calls to NBC). And it embodies what many members of the media -- conservative, liberal and nonpartisan -- decry as an arrogant, unnecessarily adversarial attitude, one where questions about White House decisions are regarded as inappropriate and, now, quite possibly unpatriotic.

    And the relationship has been particularly hampered by these White House staffers' well-publicized difficulty telling the truth.
    That is what I found it was about when I googled the phrase. Salon.com News | White House whitewashers
    Apparently, the Bush Administration did not like criticism to their actions from Maher.

    Absolutely right...she is a propagandist at best....and still has not addressed the truth at all.

    Re: Fox News firebrand Glenn Beck facing axe

    Not quite the full story.
    On September 17, Bill Maher, host of ABCís Politically Incorrect, took issue with Bush's characterization of the hijackers as "cowards," saying that the label could more plausibly be applied to the U.S. militaryís long-range cruise missile attacks than to the hijackers' suicide missions. Maher, a hawk on military issues, intended his comment as a criticism of Bill Clinton's emphasis on air power over ground troops, but major advertisers, including Federal Express and Sears, dropped their sponsorship, and several ABC affiliate stations dropped Maherís show from their lineups (Washington Post, 9/28/01).

    Commenting at an official news briefing, White House spokesman Ari Fleischer called Maher's remark "a terrible thing to say," adding, "There are reminders to all Americans that they need to watch what they say, watch what they do, and this is not a time for remarks like that; there never is." The White House's transcript of Fleischer's remarks mysteriously omitted the chilling phrase "watch what they say," in what White House officials later called a "transcription error" (New York Times, 9/28/01).

    Best news I've had all day. Does this mean a million people wised up last year? God, I hope so.
    Beck has been losing ratings continuously since early last year. His "taking back the Civil Rights movement" was offensive to a lot of people. But his public image has taken a lot of hits due to extreme rhetoric and gold-related scandals. The biggest mistake his makes is preaching opinion as written-in-stone fact. People are getting tired of him and Fox could easily hire a younger, less damaged talent.

    Megan McCain should have her own show. Let Beck's contract expire.

    Plus when he used his show to try to prove his crackpot religion to be true, I almost lost it. How anyone can watch a Mormon (have you heard the stuff they believe?) and take what they say as logical is beyond me. Let me start getting my news from Scientologists too!
    Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.
