    I'm well aware of this. Always have been.

    Then my statement stands. He made a claim. Was proven wrong. And retracted.

    He admitted on the view that he's not a reporter or a journalist or a newscaster but rather a commentator and a comedian.

    He also admitted he doesn't do research. Which makes any claims of doing 'research' to debunk things quite suspicious.

    a. Downplayed it.
    b. Dismissed it.
    c. Ignored it.
    d. Made excuses for it.
    e. Blamed Bush for it.

    So, if you weigh Beck's hyperbole against the left's bile, things come out looking pretty even.

    Anyway, it's not like the left is listening to reasoned critiques of their policy initiatives. Those, too, are often dismissed or ignored, so I'm forced to remain silent in regards to people like Beck.

    You know, pretty much the only Glenn Beck I've ever watched has been in the YouTube videos posted by his haters, on this site -- and if that's the most "damning" stuff he does, then you're totally right.

    Who is "the left"? I find broad generalisations like this are counterproductive if you want to have a reasoned discourse.

    Are you arguing just to argue?

    In this forum? Anybody who doesn't like Ron Paul (ie. Freedom) or stands to the left of Navy. So pretty much all of depending on who you're talking to.
