    Neither.

    He's a commentator.

    Don't like his opinions?

    Don't watch.

    Problem solved.

    lets get that one straight, since you brought it up, and then I'll continue.
    So he made a claim and had to go back on it. 'Debunking' something long after it's known to be untrue is not much debunking. I'm still waiting for your 10 examples. And I've noticed you didn't touch the racist comment

    yea, right, sure. nice spin.
    I'm still waiting for your 10 examples.
    Oh please, what good would it do when you wont even go back on the most basic of examples? Seriously, you'll just spin it. "Awww, Glenn beck isn't bashing republicans, He's just bashing newt gingrich because Gingrich is being a liberal poopy-head".

    Yea, I see no point in doing that for someone so intellectually dishonest. I'll just go back to reading my conservative philosophy books in private, and you can go think that im a right-wing hack. I think it's better that way.
    And I've noticed you didn't touch the racist comment
    Of course not, i watched him say it on TV. What, you think I'm some Glenn Beck worshiper?

    Did you think they had concentration camps to begin with? Did you really?

    So you don't have 10 examples. What about 5? I want to see viciousness. I want to see conspiracy theories a la OLIGARHY. I want to see comparisons of right wing concepts and ideas to those of Hitler's or Mussolini's. But I bet you won't bring them up because they simply do not exist.

    But how about this, BEFORE you go talking about dishonesty, when a commentator such as Glenn Beck references the final solution, concentration camps and eugenics then says he didn't really mean the part about concentration camps even though according to him the FINAL SOLUTION is what "we" are facing - what else are people supposed to think? That when he talked about concentration camps and made references to everything else that surrounded it, HIS apologies didn't come as a result of being found to be dishonest? You're probably not a right wing hack but as far as digesting the bull****? Oh you sure do.

    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.

    Words that I would use to describe Glen Beck

    Propagandist
    Demagogue
    Pamphleteer (if the meaning could be expanded to include spoken as well as written word)


    He is not in the business of reporting, since he is in the business of shaping public opinion, and he is not in the business of entertaining for the same reason.

    Either there is a place where these camps exist or they simply don't. You can't debunk something and then say that you can not debunk it. They aren't some supernatural entity who's existence is questionable and appears to only some.
