so when he used to write on his chalk borad and then draw lines from one thing to another and make other people look like they where up to no good that was alright by this paper, even though it was never proven right.

He makes money bashing the President.

@ lket "... was alright by this paper, even though it was never proven right." it'll be nice if you tell us specifically what Glenn was talking about

'Aren't we all a little wrong about something?' - good luck looking for the liberal media to admit any wrong doings

Somewhere in Time, UT

I don't agree with Glenn on everything, but he's a sincere person and he's really trying to do what's right. Anyone who says otherwise hasn't ever really watched him.

"I would like to take this moment and ask the media,” Beck asked at the conclusion of the segment, “aren’t we all a little wrong about something?"

That's true enough, but there is very little likelihood that anyone with a microphone will suggest they could be wrong about everything they say. And when you're absolutely certain about some things, those issues become divisive, even if you say them in the nicest possible way. If you have strong feelings about an issue, how do you express them without being divisive? Is it possible to offend no one? Was Rodney King asking the impossible when he implored, "Can't we all just get along?"

He gives himself a large serving of the benefit of the doubt, but would never do the same for a democrat.

Just more hypocrisy.

There's been no uprising or Apocalypse. He's never admitted to being wrong about any of that.

I have learned more about our government, our currant POTUS, and the state of the world from Glenn Beck than anyone else. Some things were not pleasant. The truth is actually unpleasant sometimes when exposed. The thing I really like about him is that he uses the person's recorded video, voice, and quote to educate one as to actually what was said not just what Glenn thinks. He always ends with, "You take this information and research it further, then make up your own mind." In my opinion, he offers sound information that the main stream media often never reports and brings it front and center. I appreciate that.

Now we see many others beginning to speak out against the serious problems we have in this government. I appreciate Glenn Beck along with Rush Limbaugh and others for "waking up" many Americans who were not paying very close attention. Benghazi and the IRS are two prime examples. We must have answers. These issues must not, in my opinion, be swept under the rug.

Yes we are...Beck more than most.

Let's be honest and all admit that to be politically aware in America today will likely result in being divided. How can it not? Many think that the leaders in D.C. are supposed to work together on all issues and come to some kind of middle ground compromise. That works for some things, but there are some issues where there is no middle ground. Examples, Pro Choice/Pro life. SSM or no SSM. Go to war or don't go to war. Deficit spending and borrowing, or balancing a budget and not borrowing. You see, some of the biggest issues we face don't really have any middle ground to occupy. And that will always keep us as a people and our representatives divided. That is really a testament to our freedom as a nation and people. I don't think Glenn has been any more divisive than anyone else in print, on air, or in politics. He's probably just more sensitive about it. And honest.

Salt Lake City, UT

Sounds like Glenn Beck has the title for his next book. How many of us will give our hard earned dollars to attend his "Aren't we all a little wrong" seminar? I have to admit, the man knows how to keep the money flowing in.

Glenn Beck always proves his point by going to the original source. This country needs people who will expose the President for what he is. If everyone in America doesn't know by now, Barack Obama is a liar. He lied about the Affordable Care Act...Obamacare. He lied about what happened in Benghazi. He didn't lie when he said that our 'electricity rates will necessarily skyrocket' because as he shuts down coal fired electricity plants, this will most likely come to pass. Glenn Beck is the most truthful person in the media today!

American Fork, UT

I don't know, glenn. Back when you had the crazy board and the nazi props and the circles and picked letters out of various phrases to spell words that meant...whatever, I think you were more than just a little bit wrong.

Bountiful, ut

Glenn Beck is a showman; always has been, always will be. By his own admission that's EXACTLY what he is. I don't trust him to ever do, say or be anything that isn't self serving. There certainly are a lot of folks who buy his drivvel, even in the age of the Internet where all of you can easily look up the truth of anything you REALLY want to know the truth of.

OR you can just listen to Glenn Beck and have your minds made up for you without the benefit of facts, truth or agenda.

Saint George, UT

Glen Beck is awesome! I don't need him for anything he says, however, because I believe in education, which is something all the Republican and Democratic Ditto heads don't. Please take the time, my friends, to think your own thoughts and reach your own conclusions, conclusions that can all be wrapped up with a simple document--the constitution. Compare that to the word of God and your on your way to getting it right!

Yes we can all be a little wrong (and are) sometimes. But Mr. Beck has been more than a little wrong. He has gone off the deep end and blasted anyone he has disagreed with using a megaphone. He has taken a lot of the folks who listen to him over the edge with him.

If he wants a second chance with folks he will need to repeat his contrition speech often and then show something different in his actions. This will likely deep six his show because logic and reason make for poor ratings (unlike the crazy train).

Like Bungalow above, I loved his tribute to President Hinckley. But I just have not been able to tolerate listening to him.

I hope he follows his words with actions - real and sustained. It would be nice for such a prominent LDS voice to be one of reason.

Durham, NC

Let me see if I understand this correctly. If we agree with Beck, we are educated - particularly in the constitution and in the word of God. If we per chance don't agree with Beck we are uneducated Republican and Democratic Ditto heads. Gotcha....

So which half of the framers of the constitution are the ditto heads... and which were "educated"? I mean, one side was pro slavery, one side not. One side were federalist, one side anti-federalist. Some were deeply devote Christians, some like Jefferson and Madison were Diest. Was Jefferson a ditto-head? I mean, he even wrote his own interpretation of the bible.

I just want to be clear here..... because surely we don't want be ditto heads as Banderson so eloquently described... We want to be educated free thinkers, you know... the ones who think in lock step with Brother Glenn.

Parkesburg, PA

Again, Beck misses the point. Fact is most of us, especially me, are a lot wrong about a lot of things. That's why we all spend our lives in pursuit of truth looking for further knowledge and understanding in all we do. For me, I determined many years ago when Beck was on the air here in Philadelphia the deeper understanding I sought was not to be found in his audience.

Of course everyone is wrong at times. In fact I am wrong about things on a daily basis. I guess the difference is that I don't make millions being wrong. I don't deliberately destroy my country in order to make myself rich. I equate your actions with what bankers like Jaime Dimon did, as well as many politicians. When you deliberately take the low road in order to make money, then I don't see it as being 'a little mistake'.

Provo, UT

Glenn Beck admits that he might have gone over the top and he is right. But he did the same thing that talking heads like Maddow and Schultz do on the left. They all fan the flames of the political spectrum while laughing all the way to the bank. But those on the right defend Beck and those on the left defend their commentators.

The continued demonization of "Tea Party" people also contributes to the shredding of the nation's fabric. Some are extreme but the vast majority of them are average Americans who have concerns about the direction of the country and specifically the debt we are accumulating.

The SEIU is an extreme group on the left and some of their leaders are radical but most are just Americans trying to do why they think is right.

So when we quit calling the other side names and realize this is part of the political dialogue we might actually get something done.

This man is brilliant. Thank you for all you do.. Glenn Beck!
