    No, because I cannot find proof that he actually did this. The tickets for his show were $125 apiece - I'm guessing you're not talking about that. If you can show me an actual news story showing me that Glenn Beck charged a fee just to be in his presence throughout the town, I'll eat my words.
    Just give it up Mellie … she wolf is just a frustrated liberal, that has to pick on someone to make herself feel good .. Glenn Beck, G.W. Bush .. Ronald Reagan, the Tea Party … as long as she can bitch about anything, blame her own short cummings on anyone else it makes her feel better.

    There are actually a few liberals here .. that you can have a discussion with … she isn't one of them .. if it's done by a conservative … it's bad … if it's done by a liberal .. it's good ..

    Perhaps... but from my point of view it appears the left wing media trains it viewers and listeners to attack the right wing media's viewers and listeners and visa versa, so you see the audiences of the media regardless of which side are throwing stones at glass houses. If it bleeds it leads, chaos, fear and hatred is a revenue generator for our media, and the more money it makes the more political clout it has, and with this it can in place those who support our corrupt media to continue the rot.

    All that said, remove the politcal aspects of the news and report just the strait news, any media outlet can do this.

    I think you make a great point here in that people only tend to notice when media outlets of the opposing lean attack, rather than their own. Sort of like how people only want to acknowledge facts that they agree with.

    All that said, remove the politcal aspects of the news and report just the strait news, any media outlet can do this.
    Sadly this is true, but as of right now doesn't look like it will happen. These sources know what makes them money and it is by doing what they are doing now. News has fallen victim to corporate wealth.

    Secondly, why the hell should any of us care Beck is moving? That baffles me more about this thread then anything.

    Why would I lie about something like that and make it up? I know Wilmington very well. I know a business owner there very well and business owners. I know a lot of people who work on the police force there. I know a lot of people who work for Clinton County Hospital. The Sheriff of Clinton County is Sheriff Fizer and he is the son of the previous Sheriff Fizer... lol.

    I know what Glenn Beck did to the local people there and what he didn't do. He didn't visit a single business that his recruiters didn't stake out ahead of time, and weren't Beck supporters. He charged the locals 500 dollars a day to dine and talk with him. If you don't believe me then that's your own folly, and Beck has you fooled.

    Beck isn't a local hero in Wilmington. It's well know that Beck didn't walk into random businesses to say hello and get a feel of Wilmington. It's well know that Beck wouldn't talk to anybody if they didn't pay, and no other celebrity has behaved that way in Wilmington before.

    You choose to be willfully blind. Why would I make such things up? I know how Glenn Beck acted, because I know people from Wilmington and he isn't a local hero.

    Beck followers descend on Wilmington


    Meet and Greet Tickets Mellie.... He charged people to meet him, including locals. If you had a Clinton County Driver's license you didn't get a free handshake, a book, or a hello. If his recruiters didn't stake you out and approve you, he didn't stop in your business. The guy made more money from Wilmington than he actually donated, and you act like this man can do no wrong. He was even caught lying about Wilmington and saying the town didn't take federal money.

    You're blind Mellie. You challenged me from proof, I challenge you to actually visit Wilmington sometime and learn what local people actually think of him.

    You're being dishonest, SheWolf. The $500 was a meet and greet package that included meeting Glenn, breakfast with Glenn, a photo with Glenn and a ticket to the radio show. 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....

    It's not just a dry heat in Dallas. It can be quite humid there as well. The only time its a dry heat is when they have not hard rain for weeks and all the moisture has been boiled up out of the air. It is not uncommon for heat indexes there to exceed 115. The humidity is not as bad in Dallas as it is in Houston, but the summers in Dallas are far worse than they are in the southeast (other than central and southern Arkansas and Memphis).

    Re: Glenn Beck Moves to Dallas, Texas

    Look at all these horrible celebrities charging money to talk to them....

    charitybuzz | Celebrity

    $10,000 to golf with Morgan Freeman? Estimated value - $75K? Why can't he just meet people for free? Such a hater.

    Meet Selena Gomez backstage for $3,750? How rude that she won't do that for free.

    Meeting Samuel L. Jackson starts at $1,000? Gosh....he's getting rich off of people. Evil.

    $250 is the starting bid to meet Joy Behar? Why doesn't she sit down and talk to everyone who comes to her show?

    You see, SheWolf. Celebrities raise money for charity by selling meetings with them and tickets to their shows. It's not evil, it's not rude, it's not greed.....it's GOOD. They're doing it for CHARITY. And so was Glenn. Your blind hatred for this man is juvenile.
