    On the poll one person, give him the reporter title. I am under the expression that he is neither a reporter, nor does he entertain me. So to me, he is nether.



    To me, he seems to be borderline crazy.

    My standards for regarding someone as a reporter must be a bit higher. To me, a reporter "reports." Beck just whines and belly-aches and bitches about America and acts like a dumb-ass. But that's entertainment, I suppose.

    Circus clowns should get paid what he does. At least they are true to the art.

    In other words, Glenn Beck and others like him sell themselves as legitimate sources of accurate information, and then they hide behind the First Amendment when they get called on the carpet -- and that's when they don't preemptively invoke "opinion" at the very moment they're spouting their rhetoric.

    Since Glenn Beck can't seem to decide whether he's going to bill himself as a source of information or a font of opinion, I thought I'd ask the question here, in a poll:

    Is Glenn Beck a reporter or an entertainer? To which standard should he be held?


    ETA: "Entertainer" is used to reference the profession. You can be an entertainer without actually being entertaining.
    I say he is an entertainer but he is also a source of information.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Hey, I gotta great idea! Let's make the scumbags locked up at Gitmo have to listen to Beck, in Arabic, 24 hours a day. That would be better than making them to listen to Barry Manilow. That would break even the most stubborn of men. Beck very well may be a GREAT source of information, indeed.

    You're on to something Jamerage. Always thinking, you.
