    If beck believes what he says he is more of a fool then the people that do believe him because he is their leader.

    Are you this politically illiterate? He doesn't get a paycheck from the rallies. He gets a paycheck to be a rhetor with his own show. Seriously, do you think that he doesn't get a bonus whenever he does something which doesnt embarrass the company he works for? It's social and ratings capital disguised as political capital.
    Do you get bonuses after a certain number of bash Beck posts? You don't?
    Do you have proof beck gets bonuses?

    I was too. Sometimes I don't watch his TV show because he gets too annoying (especially when he does the hoity-toity pipe routine). His radio show is great because there are 3 people instead of just him. I love it when Pat and Stu make fun of Glenn right in front of his face.

    About 5 years of non-stop work in what could be considered part of the entertainment industry and knowing literally 1000s of professionals all over the world. Live shows are nothing more than publicity stunts pay in spades. The real money for people like Beck is in book signs, public speaking, licensing fees for every product imaginable(part of my line of work), internet promotions, public stunts, attending rallies. etc. etc. etc. The real money for Beck is essentially what the real money is for most stars. It's not in having a show. It's in making people pay to see him. It's in having an interview with a magazine and making it pay $50,000for taking 9 pictures(also part of my work field). Seriously, you'd have to be a complete idiot to believe Beck leaves his shows empty handed.

    He merely exaggerates his persona, because it is electrifying on taped television.

    As for who is more intelligent, I would say that I keep watching Beck because the man really exaggerates intellectual history for an incredibly simplistic narrative.

    Repeating the lie about goldline being a scam won't make it true either.
    It is usually his guilt-by-association trick which gets him in trouble. That and incorrect conclusions, such as the American Eugenics Movement's impact on Europe, incorrect assumptions about the identity of SDS, and an inordinate concentration on racism in certain public figures, while ignoring the level of acceptance by the masses, and so on.

    His radio show is what hooked me several years ago. I probably wouldn't watch his TV show so much if not for DP.
    I don't want to ruin my image of being a Beck worshipper. I need to keep up with what's going on in his life. :-)

    I really like that they added Pat. It's nice that they are best friends and now working together. They used to crack me up when Pat would call into the show from Houston. Did you listen way back then?

    I really like how they added Pat too. The first couple weeks when he first was there, the show was HILARIOUS the entire 3 hours.

    I started listening back when Glenn was on CNN, maybe back in 2003...? I found his TV show dull and uninteresting, but his radio show was fabulous. I always wondered why his TV show was a dud. I think it's because CNN had him on a tight leash. The Fox Glenn is the Glenn from the radio show.
