    He does use witty statements and accusations to refer to said progressives as liberals. He never does say so in a direct statement. Like i said, he's good.

    Glenn and Rush have been doing comedy on their shows long before Colbert and Stewart made an appearance with their own shows.

    Liberals are progressives.

    I realize that is what he wants it to be for. Expect when he goes on his talks he sorts of leaves out the humor part until the very end so he can cover his ass. And the man is great at it, but it is just cover for him.

    Not a whole show. As posted above. Rush can so as he pleases in my opinion, I think radio is a bit different then say a heavily watched cable news network. Fox News by no means should have approved that segment. I do stand by my statement that sometimes Glenn probably does envy not necessarily their shows, but more of their approach on News.

    I don't know Stewart has been doing the Daily Show since 1998. Pretty sure Beck started radio in 2000.

    You're assuming he puts in humor in order to say "Nah, I really don't believe anything I say." That's incorrect. He uses humor in several ways. Ever watch the frog in boiling water episode? It was funny. He used humor to make the point that people (frogs) immediately jump out of boiling water, but when they're put into lukewarm water and gradually heated up, they don't realize they're being boiled to death. When our government gradually takes away our freedoms, changes history (thank you, Mrs. Obama) and takes us farther away from our Founding Fathers, we don't realize it until we're so far gone that we can't get back.

    Sometimes he uses humor for exaggeration (like the Fear segment that was posted above).

    Sometimes he uses humor to make fun of himself (the crying picture), the picture of himself as a clown, etc.

    Never does he use humor to refute the seriousness of what he's saying. I'm absolutely certain he believes what he says.

    Sorry i meant "said progressives as liberals" I'll edit that. But being liberal and being progressive isn't the same.

    Glenn has been in radio since the late 70s.
