The Glenn Beck Show

Postby PlayingWithFire » Wed Feb 21, 2007 10:31 pm

As most of you guys know, I'm left leaning when it comes to politic. But I just recently starting to catch this Glenn Beck show on CNN. And though he's way to the right compare to me. I find that news show to be refreshing as it talks about issues that actually matters(though I don't necessarily agree with his stance) rather than the news story the likes of the recent Anna Nicole Smith debacle. He's got a decent sense of humor to go with it. Again, I don't agree with a lot of things he said, but I generally looks forward to the points he raises during the show. More guys like Glenn rather than Paula Zaun would definitely be a good thing.

Who else watch his show and enjoy it? And what are some criticism towards him?

I don't watch his show much but I catch it from time to time because I basically agree with your sentiment. Although I am left-leaning myself politically, I don't see Beck as being a "divide and conquer" type of radio host or pundit... the "us against them" is starting to sicken me. Hearing nothing other than things like "the war on Christmas," "the liberal media," gay bashing and the sanctity of marriage. Let's talk about something thoughtful people like healthcare, education and, oh yeah, there's a war going on.

I genuinely think that Beck, as a conservative, sees no use in dividing America against itself which guys like O'Reilly and Limbaugh get such a kick out of. Both sides are guilty of it to a degree but it seems like it's cool to despise fellow Americans for their ideologies now more than ever. I hate it; and I hate cable news which is why I rarely catch Beck. I wouldn't call myself a fan, but I appreciate what he's doing at least... or what he's not doing; destroying America.

[quote"Glenn Beck on Katrina victims"]I didn't think I could hate victims faster than the 9/11 victims.[/quote]

Glenn Beck claims he is wrote:surprised that former President Jimmy Carter did not attend Iran's December conference on Holocaust denial


Would you kill someone for that?...I'm thinking about killing Michael Moore...I could kill him myself, or if I would need to hire somebody to do it,...No, I think I could. I think he could be looking me in the eye, you know, and I could just be choking the life out. Is this wrong?


Eh, call me nuts, but he seems like just another jerk who has a show used to divide the American people.

He's so funny. I find myself agreeing with a lot of what he says. I listen to him on the radio and see his show sometimes at night.

He's a moron. The whole "prove to us that you're not a terrorist" interview with Ellison was beyond ridiculous.

aren't all conservatives morons to some degree? :-D

I do agree he says a lot of stupid things. What I like is the topic he choose to cover.
