    Glenn Beck is a political commentator who has earned the ire of the left for attacking their beloved Messiah and his sacred agenda.

    I don't understand the point of this thread. No one is claiming that Glenn Beck is a journalist. We all know he is an entertainer / political commentator, but this, in no way, precludes him from being informative or reporting on substantive issues.

    I don't understand all the outrage people display over him. He's no worse than any of the other people on TV, and at least he isn't pretending to be a journalist like some people are...

    I'd say he's more like a warrior.

    Re: Is Glenn Beck a reporter or an entertainer

    Beck is an entertainer and I think he's very good at what he does. He claims to be a libertarian and the "facts" he talks about on his show are put through that over the top, twisted, libertarian lens he carries around. The same exact "facts" would be handled very differently by republican, democrat or centrist commentators. The "facts" are not really the issue, if they are indeed facts (and I'm not saying they're not, I have found myself agreeing with Beck on numerous occasions). The issue is the spin each commentator will put on the exact same set of "facts". Beck is excellent at spinning things in just the right loony libertarian way. I totally love him.
