    Well, if you can't start a religion to get rich, this isn't a bad way to separate your foolish followers from their money.

    Props to Beck. Making his already ignorant followers more ignorant and less wealthy.

    Two words that should never be together would be Glenn Beck, and University he will be making his follower more close mined

    Seems to me like propaganda with a university label. I would be just as opposed to this if Olberman set up some online university. I think this university would teach only some information and leave out "inconvenient truths" to the ideology they want to promote. They would be teaching you information to shape and mold your opinion, not to educate you on the facts and leave it up to personal interpretation of what is right and correct/most logical politically.

    Strangely I'm alright with this. I really don't have that much of a problem with Beck. He gets some things wrong, and jumps to conclusions a little to soon or with to little info but overall I think Beck is an okay guy. He does get a little preachy but if you listen to him he will usually tell you to go do your own research and to view things from both sides (even though many a time he fails to take his own advice, however, he acknowledges that he is one side though and says that you should go listen to the other). Basically I view him as a Right-Wing leader who tells people to go view all the other angles while he preaches his own philosophy.

    Sadly many of his followers are closed minded individuals. And sometimes he is a bit closed minded as well. But I would say that he isn't any worse then Colbert or similar pundits.

    Colbert is a comedian doing satire, not a pundit.

    It never ceases to amaze me how many people don't get this.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    I bet Beck has got wads of cash that he throws onto his bed, rolls around on while laughing at all of the ****ing idiots who buy all of his bull****.

    Well, he has viewers not followers. I'm not a fan, but in every show I have seen of his, he does encourage his viewers to do their own reading. I can't fault that despite not likeing him.
