    A few thoughts. First, I'm not a liberal. I'm quite conservative on a number of key issues, particularly fiscal responsibility.

    Second, my view of Glenn Beck is that he presents discredited pseudo historians and skewed data on his show, and people whose views he's reinforcing soak that **** up like a sponge. This view is based upon evaluating the information that Mr. Beck presents on a number of issues. I've watched his show many times, and Rush Limbaugh does a better job of presenting unbiased and objective, factual information...and that's saying something.

    Your view is that liberals are "prejudiced" against Glenn Beck personally because "they" don't like his message. My view is that he's shoddy and sloppy in handling facts and that he uses his bully pulpit to influence the weak=minded fools in this country who have zero idea how to do their own research and prefer their pablum in a convenient, ready-to-use television format.

    His followers tend to be similarly sloppy thinkers who don't know the history of their own religions, much less the history of this nation, and who are too lazy to crack a book, read, and find out. They prefer having their prejudices reinforced by Glenn Beck to doing the sort of research that would help them understand their own system of government and country. They're lazy, cowardly, anti-intellectual, and many of them are racists who lack the dignity to be open with their despicable views. And, worst of all, they pride themselves on these things.

    I dislike Glenn Beck not because of his political views, but because he's a political snake oil salesman preying on the weak-minded to make a quick buck.

    I have more respect for telemarketers shilling financial schemes to senior citizens.

    Anything that Glenn Beck sets his hand to has one purpose, and one purpose only: To glorify and enrich Glenn Beck. I pity those of you who think he's a sincere prophet of your beliefs.

    Want someone to follow? Rick Santorelli would be a far better choice.

    Wow, I really should have known just how lost you are after blaming that attack on hannity by a conservative on liberals, but you just outdid yourself right there.

    They all do it for the ratings, without ratings there is no TV show. With no TV show, there's no money. So no matter what, it's always for the ratings. No honest individual could sit there and tell me that Hannity or Beck are reporting in a completely intellectually honest position without the use of hyperbole or hyper partisanship. No intelligent person would ever claim such a thing. It's blatantly obvious if you watch the shows what they are doing. These entertainers are doing nothing other than throwing out sensationalized propaganda to work people into a hissy fit and get them to watch their programing. That's all there is to it. Big hearts....please. It's all about the big pocket book.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Fail. Their ratings are high because the majority of their viewers prefer lazily having their prejudices reinforced to the effort required to learn things and actually think for themselves. Being overtly anti-intellectual is NOT something to take pride in.

    Hannity and Beck, not to mention Olberman, have high ratings because there are a lot of not very intelligent people in this country who like being told that they're right. They give people exactly what they want to hear.

    We have complicated problems in this country that transcend partisan politics. Those who feed the partisan masses aren't helping, they are only exacerbating the situations and making it more likely that our country will fall apart at the point when we need to pull together the most.

    This is absolutely correct. The last thing we need to do with our current problems is pull apart into our separate camps as the solution is going to take all of us working for the better of our country, not what we think the country should be as viewed through our ideological lenses. Unfortunately, thats far easier said than done.

    Wow. You suddenly turned into Glenn Beck there for a second. That's precisely what the 9/12 Movement and the Restoring Honor Rally is all about. We need to unite as a country and get back to the principles and values that made this country great.

    I wouldn't say that the people that listen aren't intelligent, but I would say that the people that don't understand that you must take it with a grain of salt and realize that alot of it is for entertainment and partisanship aren't thinking it all the way through.

    Yeah. The difference is that I'm serious. I've spent the last 20 years working with violent inner city populations to fix problems at great personal risk to myself.

    What has Glenn Beck done? Oh, he's cried on television.

    Glenn Beck cares about Glenn Beck. Nothing more, nothing less.

    It's sad how deluded people are about his motives.

    Glenn Beck is trying to pull the country together by scaring the Christians that the non-religious are going to come and get their guns and bibles.

    Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin are ALL ABOUT what's in the best interests of this country, and the "morals and values that made us great."

    I feel nauseous.
