I agree, but that type of rhetoric is what people actually believe who watch...just like how people believe obama is a muslim, or not born in this country etc. Look, anybody with sense knows that simply is not true, just like this stated opinion from beck. I have no problem with calling him out and making him look like a fool. What is truely bizaare is his producer then trys to support the figure. Its funny to me how these "rumors" start, but dont take offense when blantent ignorance is completely crushed by fact. Your right though, dont take what this talk show host rants as news.

Crazy comes in many forms, it's not always outwardly noticeable.

Glenn Beck: Welcome To My 'Favorite Things' Episode! Here's A Christmas Survival Bag

I wanted to post this in the What are you getting for Christmas thread, but i didnt want to cause any trouble.... This was pretty funny though.

I dvr his show and watch it on the reg., but only finish about 2 shows a week. This was one i couldnt finish, it just felt like he was selling stuff the whole time. I think part of the problem with his shows are that they are on for i think 3 hours a day; 2 hours on radio, 1 on tv. They are also opinion shows (which he makes very clear), so he has to talk about how he feels about stuff for 3 hours a day 5 days a week, that’s a lot theres only so much you can say. In my opinion 2 or 3 of his tv shows a week are great; they are fascinating, entertaining, engaging, funny, inspiring, emotional, and eventful. But some are pretty crappy. He’s also a little bit of a manic, so one day you watch and hes completely down to earth and does a great job conveying his message. Another day its like hes pissed off at the world and comes across angry and emotional inspired not fact-based driven.

I normally never talk about politics, except on here. I find myself defending Beck because I feel like most people make up their minds on him and write him off as a loon without ever watching his show, only watching clips on the Daily Show and I guess now CNN or reading headlines that are completely misleading. His show is on at a time slot that most people find inconvenient so its extremely easy for people to take him out of context, smear him or even make outright lies about him. Most people accept it as fact because they don’t have the chance to make their minds up about him directly from watching his show. In my opinion he is much more moderate then O’Rielly and definitely Shawn Hannity, but its much harder to attack these people since they have prime time viewing hours.

Heard this rumor for the last several months, looks like FOX is sick of ole Glen Beck and his bullsh*t.

Re: My Thoughts On The Glenn Beck Rally

If they were tired of his bullshit I don't see why they would have all those plans to do other shows. I'm guessing that trying to do a morning radio show and a TV show is too much work and Beck is cutting back. Not sure how many stations carry his radio show but I'm guessing that makes more then what FOX pays him. The few times I have watch his show I have found it very entertaining.

Yeah, very entertaining.

The reason is Beck makes them $$$. The more extreme the rhetoric, the better the ratings, and Becks were sky high. I would watch a couple times a month just to see what that jackass would say next. Fox was sick of his stuff, and he was losing his primary viewers, the 50+ crowd, in the end they will say its was mutual

Actually therein lies Beck's problem, you can only go too far "out there" and there will be a backlash. Advertisers dropping, ratings dropping = Bye, bye Beck show. His schtick got old pretty quick.

This is pretty funny though:

Re: My Thoughts On The Glenn Beck Rally

Noooooooooooooooooooooo


I don't know what to think of all this yet. Ill say that I've cut back on watching his show a lotand have only watched a handful of times this year. I feel like after christmas or so he reinvented his show and rolled out his wwhole e4 thing. He does change the tone and feeling of his show it seems about every 6 months or so and this particular style didn't really resonant with me, and im guessing others. I guess I would describe his most recent style more opinionated and less just reporting facts while alluding to the obvious conclusions.

It could also be about his health, maybe his eye sight is getting worse then he's letting on?

Im also wondering if he's trying to get more into the production behind the scene business. Maybe roll out a group of simular opinion news shows?

Should be interesting in what happens within the next year. 2012 is coming up and the demand for a commentator with his views is gonna be high during election season. He was only on fox news for a couple years and instantly became one of the most polarizing commentators out there. There's a lot of people who feel the way he does and you're gonna need to fill the void somehow. I can promise that there will be no one else that can draw the amount of viewers or add revenue, even with limited advertisers, on any news network during the 5 o'clock slot for years to come.

No surprise the guy is a joke. People can only take so much crazy. Maybe he'll go back to being a radio zookeeper.

Re: My Thoughts On The Glenn Beck Rally

Everybody thought Beck was crazy when he predicted the economic collapse in 2007 too. That definitely never happened or anything.

Well, if you predict doom and gloom all the time, you're going to be right sooner or later.
