    Now calm down you aren't doing anything to fight the idea of the "crazy right winger" by foaming at the mouth
    You take all the facts and evidence you can gather and form an opinion. Most times that opinion will be correct.

    Most of what Beck and Limbaugh say is their opinion. Why get so bent out of shape because you disagree with them? Chill out.

    So, in your opinion, they are not telling the truth? Care to be specific?

    Well, at least you said you "think" he spreads misinformation.

Some have said it does matter whether these men actually believe what they say and I agree. Both are men are talented and smart, because of the outrageous things they say, it is hard to fathom they actually believe it. It's all about $$$$$$$.
    Don't know about Mellie, but
    I care because I don't like seeing anyone wrongly accused. People who are obsessed with discrediting Beck at every turn, have made me look obsessed with him and every word that comes out of his mouth.

    I also "think" he's a crazy loon. After watching him through this egypt stuff and accusing the Bush admin. being in bed with communists... I'm not sure how much longer he'll be on tv in all honesty. Someone at fox is going to realize sooner or later that they're better off without him. They had great ratings before him and they'll have great ratings after him.

    Beck and Limbaugh are salesmen. They sell a product. Whether they believe in their product is irrelevant. They make money from it. That's all that matters.

    A few says ago I had the thought that people that watch Beck are divided into 2 major groups, one that is scared after listening to him and the other that is scared after listening to him.

    I don't agree. Those who watch Beck will not be surprised and might be prepared if things he believes comes true. Other's who have been living with their heads buried in the sand will be saying "Holy ****! How'd this happen?"
    If he's wrong, no harm done.

    Yes
    No
    I don't know
    I have always thought that pundits say a lot of stuff to make money... If Ann Coulter never said anything offensive or shocking, nobody would know who she was. If Beck wasn't on TV crying and talking about FEMA concentration camps, he wouldn't be as well known either.

    It's the same with Olbermann. If he didn't carry on like he wanted to be hated by the right, they wouldn't care enough to talk about him on FOX.

    Didn't Emeniem say this was his marketing strategy? To make money off of controversy or being hated, or something like that...
