    We must be talking about two different Maddows. The one I watch does nothing but bash Conservatives, Republicans, and the Tea Party. She did slow down on the Bash Bush and Cheney somewhat.
    Wait... I take it back, she has had a few shows where she went to Iraq and the Gulf oil spill.
    Other than that, she is not a reporter by any stretch.

    Google Maddow lies to see why I don't believe anything the woman says without verifying it.
    Responsible reporting? You crack me up.

    His Guilt by association is something I was doing on my own with Obama as soon as he came into the picture during the election.
    I wouldn't call it a trick. I would call it, here are the facts, come to your own conclusions. That's also what Beck says.

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.
    Ok, whatever you say. I know Beck is a very rich and generous man and he makes money in all kinds of ways from his hard work. I hope he gets richer and richer. He tiths 10% plus whatever charities he does. Also he employs people. The better he does the better for other people.
    Why concern yourself with other people's wealth and success? You sound rather successful yourself, but I'm not going to begrudge you that.

    No Glenn Beck is no fake.. .. ..if you listen carefully:

    He is laughing all the way to the bank at his minions. There's a sucker born every minute.

    I don't care about his wealth. It's the belief people has that the pretty dime he makes out of all his ventures is not what motivates him. If I made $50K just for showing up to a place and speaking, I'd do it too. And if saying outrageous things got me an extra $150K? I'd do it too regardless of what it is I'm saying. If it makes me hated by some and popular to others? I'm going to benefit. It's the reason political scientists aren't on TV. Because the overwhelming majority of them don't have ridiculous opinions or opinions which the public can actually understand. Their jobs provide absolutely no intensive to say anything even remotely outrageous or popular to the masses. Having your own show and saying that conservatives bitching about taxes should feel like persecuted Jews? Quite different. Quit the strawman please.

    If he's "laughing all the way to the bank," that implies he IS fake and only says what he needs to say to make money.

    I can't stand most of them. It is good, tho, to see that Rush Bin Limbaugh has some solid competition now...
