    Yes, I do agree with that, though they don't get nearly as much taxpayer money as conservatives think and beside the fact that that isn't what I'm talking about.

    I'm not handing a check over to NPR because I love them so much and can't live without the extra two hours I would receive. They get some small pittance from tax dollars that I pay and I have no say in paying. Big difference that your trying hard to stretch into something it isn't.

    The SOTU speech, as is any political speech, is most assuredly punditry. It is one persons view of current state and a proposal for a future state, low on the nitty gritty of how one moves from now to then.
    I understand, but I was talking about people that actually pay pundits directly in order to hear them blabber on even longer then they do. Honestly, anyone that listens to Glenn beck for 6 hours a day, or any liberal commentator I can think of, needs their head examined.

    You're right. There is a large difference. One you have the freedom to pay for if you want it and the other you're forced by law to pay for. I'm glad you agree that they shouldn't get any taxpayer money.

    Actually I don't pay to listen to Glenn. I can hear him for free on my local radio station. I'm listening to him right now! And he's only on the radio for 3 hours a day, not 6.

    I enjoy listening to conservative talk radio as others might enjoy a certain style of music or television show. To each his/her own.

    It also doesn't hurt that Glenn, Pat and Stu can be hilarious.
    It's nice to see SE staying busy. Glenn made a good choice but I have to wonder if she'll now become a target for Media Matters, Huffpo etc.
    Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.

    Of course she will. I have to wonder if Glenn is thinking about adding even more people to his company for radio shows. I know he's hired several people for TheBlaze and getting ready to hire even more. The former CEO of HuffPo is the president of TheBlaze. That one made me laugh out loud.

    Yea, he's on radio for three but if you include his paid stuff and tv it's 6 hours of Glenn a day. That's what I was referring to. Anyone that can't get enough Beck from three hours of radio and an hour of tv daily has an imbalance. ****, if I listened to pundits of any stripe and variety for six hours a day I'd be pretty moody the next day. They all regurgitate the same crap over and over. How many times do you have to hear Glenn Beck talk about socialists and communists taking over before you manage to get the over arching theme of his show - scare the **** out of people.

    No, if you include TV it's 4 hours a day. The other two hours aren't Glenn, just people who work for his company. I rarely watch the TV show. I prefer the radio show since it's really funny and it's not just Glenn adding his input. You might think listening to someone for 3 hours on the radio is insane, but I think listening to someone scream into a microphone and calingl it "music" is insane. Again, to each his/her own.

    And the two people I'm sure parrot his talking points very nicely. Might as well be the same thing imo.

    It's 3 other people, actually. Stu and Pat talk a lot about sports and just make fun of Glenn. I don't listen to them much. S.E. is a Republican (Glenn is not), so she'll have a slightly different view on things.

    Nothing wrong with listening to other people's opinions.
