I just discovered a fella named Thom Hartmann. Google his name.

A striking contrast to Beck and others, Hartmann actually researches and provides accurate and truthful material.

Any publicity is good publicity as long as they spell your name right.

Beck will likely do very well.

Now that Arnold S is back acting, there is still a certain former Gov who needs a *payin'* gig.

Olbermann is now Director of News Operation on Current TV (owned by Al Gore). KO will have a show on said network soon.

"I don't get why hard core republicans are obsessed with right wing propagandists."

Because, a mind is a terrible thing to use. ROFL!

Why think when you can get one of Rupert Murdoch's many mouthpieces to do it for you?

Beck is a brilliant entertainer, and rarely does he make concrete predictions and or statements that can be disproven. Rather he gives his own opinions based loosely on facts and more on his interpretations of events, based on his own beliefs.

Now, as a political science student I can say with a surety that I have some authority in the area of "extremist views". See there is a very definitive scale used to rate ones political beliefs, hence the terms "to the right" and "to the left" of the political spectrum.

Glenn Beck's views are widely accepted to be to the "extreme right," meaning that in each category he usually pushes the limits of what a conservative would consider the furthest implementation of conservative policy (usually this means the least amount of government possible while still protecting morality and providing strong defense, for conservatives.)

So when I say extremist views I do not mean extremism with negative connotations, rather compared to most individuals he advocates a much more extreme-style of conservative government.

IMO... most LDS individuals are fairly moderate and find his beliefs to be extreme representations of their own core values.

Beck will be ok. He has made his money and continues to safely stash it in various enterprises.

Whew, and there for a moment I was worried about him. hhahahahahahhahhaah

Hopefully nothing in the future for the conspiracy theorist Glen Beck. One of his own fellow Fox News employees had started to call his show the "Fear Chamber."

It's true. His little theories are silly and pointless. I look forward to America forgetting about Glen Beck except for the tiny but paranoid "black helicopter" crowd.

Enough of Glen Beck! Enough of the Tea Party Already!

Beck is amazing. Unbelievable research and insight. Most of us do not want to believe the mess we are in or listen but from the beginning he has exposed more corruption and collusion than all the other journalists outside of Malkin combined. Those who reject him out of hand show their ignorance. I do not like his theatrics but his message is the most accurate in the media. The problems we have in this country and the enemies within as they have been exposed by their own words are legion. God bless you Glenn Beck

Glenn has done a great job of educating people of world events. It will go unheard. All through history, people like Glenn who speak out are rejected. I have an old neighbor who grew up in Germany. He stated that Glenn would have been despised had he lived in Germany during the early thirties. America is no different. Obama will win the next election no matter what he does or what some people say.

I rarely listen to the Beck TV Show. I listen to the Raio Show less and less, because it has become mostly self promotion and commericals both inside and out side the program.

Listeners Calls are Rarely taken and they are cut off and talked over.

Beck has become a shameless self promoter, what used to be a nice family guy, has become a total jerk. I do not listen to Hannety much for the same reason.

Mostly i just do not care. Iknow the World is going to heck in a hand basket and I cn't do much about it. So I fight against Abortion and listen to good music.

I Post so that little I have to say counts and is read by the most people.

I have No need for Beck for anything. Not then, Not Now, Not Ever.

So Glenn Beck being off the air on TV, is just one less commerical (the one everyday about his TV show and how great its going to be). However I am sure he will find a way to replace it.

I want more Beck! He is the reason the Republican party is eating their own. He is the reason they still don't have a candidate. He is one of the biggest reasons that Barak Obama will be our President for the next six years. Byron--I agree with you on just about every point, except Michael Moore. Love him or hate him, the guy is spot on! He is ALWAYS proven correct and it absolutely drives Reps. nuts.
