Re: My Thoughts On The Glenn Beck Rally

Beck isn't crazy, he just says crazy things that get him paid. His demise at Fox was sealed once he thought he was bigger than the network.

I kind of agree with this. He has a peace and love im just gonna do what i think is the right thing even if people dont take notice type attitude. But i think in realality he has a ego, hes just hiding it. He said how grateful he was that he was given the 5 oclock time slot by Fox 2 years ago when he broke the news that he was leaving. But i think thats the the problem, he wanted a better time slot and Fox wasnt willing to give it to him.

Ive said this before; Beck is really easy to pick on. Unless you follow him he is easy to take out of context and twist what he is saying or take away from the point hes trying to make. People talked shit about Olberman all the time. I talked shit about him. But I made sure I watched his show every so often to make sure I would reinforce (or potential change) my opinion of him. If Olberman came on at 5 I would never watch it and would act a lot like people do with Beck; hes crazy, he lies, hes a nut, I know so because ive seen his show once I keep watching clips that reinforce that perception on Stewart and Colbert and MSNBC. I guess my point is that I wouldnt be surprised if Beck wanted to have a prime time show to reach more viewers and to make it easier for people to reinforce (or potential change) their opinion of him, for themselves. Fox wasnt willing to give it to him, because I think at this point the anti-Beck camp is too strong. Beck in my opinion is less “far right” then Hannity or O’Riely, but hes a very charismatic guy, acts goofy, not formally educated and is a lot easier to pick on and discredit.

Cable news is a better place without idiots like him and Olberman on the air.

On the Daily Show last night Jon Stewart did an insightful and hilarious dismantling of Beck. If you like Jon Stewart, check it out.

No I actually think he has a little crazy in him. He certainly has an massively overflowing heap of drama flowing freely.

Re: My Thoughts On The Glenn Beck Rally

Beck is just the latest guy to tap into the cash cow that is "preach the end of the world is coming and people will pay to listen to you". Before the 1,000,000 channels of cable, they populated talk radio for decades. Inevitably, these guys start believing their own drivel.

What starts off as a calculated (and cynical) "preach to the choir" scam ends up as a "Wow, the choir believes me, I must be right" delusion.

Re: My Thoughts On The Glenn Beck Rally

This isn't like the Olbermann situation where MSNBC wanted him gone. Beck and Fox are probably going to gradually separate (I'd be surprised if this new digital content arrangment is a long term play)

Re: My Thoughts On The Glenn Beck Rally

I mean Beck's metaphor likening himself to Paul Revere...this is the type of stuff im gonna miss...seriously, if you dont throw your head back and lol when you hear him say something like that with a straight face, then you just dont get comedy. Astonishing people take this guy as real and not some comedic character. Colbert cant even do Beck, Beck is simply the man when it comes down to extreme right wing nut job.
