    Re: Is Glenn Beck a Fake?

    I have no doubt he's a fake. While I do believe to a degree he does believe in a lot of what he says, he does ham it up and exaggerate quite a bit. He was not as bad as when he was on CNN, so I think that speaks volumes.
    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.

    I'm surprised none brought up Glenn Beck's promotion of Goldline a well know fraudulent gold broker using the Fox News Network as a platform.

    It's the lemmings that believe what the propagandist says that is problematic, whether or not Beck believes his own tripe is irrelevant.

    I have never watched Mr. Beck on TV. I don't know the answer.

The overwhelming majority of people who actually 'follow' talk show hosts of any ideology are too dumb to actually look at issues for themselves. It's the reason people watch Olberman, Hannity, O'Reilley, Oprah, Dr. Phil. It's because they're too ignorant to go to their local library and make up their own minds on the subject. I equate people who watch and defend talk shows to university kids who pretend to be socialists only the stupidity comes from a completely different place.
    I think it's completely ridiculous to label a group of people stupid, dumb or ignorant simply because they listen to a radio show or watch a TV show everyday.

    I could just as easily call someone dumb because they decided to go to college to learn instead of just going to the library and figuring it all out for themselves. I wouldn't do that, of course, because that would be incredibly stupid.

    There is absolutely zero wrong with listening to a person discuss his or her opinion. Just listening to that person doesn't make the listener stupid, nor does that mean the listener DOESN'T read for himself. I read CONSTANTLY. Everything. I'm not stupid.

    I'm not sure how that makes him "fake". He does exaggerate to make points. He is very sarcastic and hams it up all the time. How does that make him fake?

    It's not because they watch him. It's because they mindlessly parrot his rhetoric on internet bulletin boards.

    Yes, and the anti-Beck people on here mindlessly accuse every single Beck listener of being stupid.

    People who listen to and believe what Beck tells them have earned at least having their intelligence questioned. Beck's purpose is to generate ratings crying about liberals, and he will stop at nothing to do it. Honesty and integrity are not part of the equation. That does not mean everything is a lie, but it does mean that with him, and all other political pundits, you have to question what they say.

    Yes. There are some people on TV and radio who actually say what they mean and mean what they say.

    Like the Restoring Honor Rally? He made nothing. He rented out the theater himself, bought every ticket himself and paid for all the hotels of the people that were part of the rally. He said his credit card bill was $250,000 from that rally. Of course, you'll just say he's lying.

    Again, some people ARE genuine. I believe he's one of those people.
