This was a special package which included several events and items. This is a charity event. Celebrities do this kind of thing all the time.....for CHARITY. Get it?

    You implied that if anyone wanted to even LOOK at Glenn Beck, they had to give him money. That's entirely untrue.

    I would love to visit Wilmington. I actually am friends with someone who was there that weekend so I'll ask him about this as well.

    I'm curious as to how much you say Glenn made from this trip.....seems to me like he donated it all to the town. Maybe you have a Media Matters article about that too....
    He didn't do a single thing for a local... He didn't take a photo with a local, shake a hand with a local, or give an autograph to a local that didn't pay him.

    If you wanted to meet Glenn Beck you had to pay... The only people who paid that money were his fans, including his local fans. If you weren't a Glenn Beck fan or a local fan and were just an average resident of Wilmington, Ohio, the event didn't involve you. It was like a bunch of Beck fans threw a party in Wilmington.

    Beck wasn't open to meeting anybody that didn't pay him 500 dollars, and the fact is, local residents had to pay up too. I know a somebody who did pay, and he works for the sheriff. The event was supposed to be for Wilmington, yet the event attracted NOBODY but Beck's fans. He wasn't reachable, he wasn't touchable, he visited no local businesses that his recruiters didn't scout out and approve to fit the image Beck wanted his show to broadcast..

    It was bull**** to think he crossed party lines. The entire thing was pure bull****, and it was about Beck and his fans, not the people of Wilmington.

    He didn't do a single thing for a local that didn't pay or wasn't scouted out.

    And then on top of that, of all the money he charged people and selling out the Murphy, he donated a small sum considering the ticket sales and meet and greets.

    If you add up the revenue from Beck's three Murphy Theater events, he sold approximately $300,000 worth of tickets. Specifically, the taping of Beck's TV show sold out, generating nearly $100,000 in sales.

    If all of that money, or virtually all of it, had gone directly to local charities than I could kind of understand why Fox News allowed one of its hosts to charge $125 for tickets to a taping. (i.e. It's all going to a good cause.) But we now know most of the money from those $125 tickets did not go to local charities.

    Last week, we found out that from the estimated $300,000 raised from Wilmington ticket sales, Beck donated a grand total of $44,000 to local charities. So where did the remaining $256,000 go?

    It was a stunt, Mellie... He isn't a local hero in Wilmington.

    Yeah, I heard his meet and greets were more like book signings.

    Yeah - I can't take the word of an ex. Especially not a bitter one. Two sides to every story, and the truth lies somewhere in the middle.

    Again, do you have any evidence other than word of mouth that this story is true or false? Obviously coming from a renowned truth teller like Beck, it's true. The tea drinking is strong in you.

    True, but when your on your third wife, the truth generally lies much closer to the ex.

    I've heard the same about both men as well. I think they both get a bad rap in the media because the media tries to smear anyone with whom they disagree.

    They get a bad rap in the media because they go on the air and act like morons.
