Media Matters has only six Beck stories today. The record is eleven. Why do they not just change the name to Beck Matters?

Follow the links to find out just how whacked out these Media Matters types really are.

Here is today's edition:

Christine Schwen: Glenn's Beck outrage will not be dissuaded by facts

I'm sure you have the "facts", Ms. Schwen.

Matt Gertz: Beck's lobbying mix-up

Where's the story about Obama's lobbying mix-up? He promised lobbyists would be gone in Washington if he became president.

Media Matters staff: So who's still advertising on Beck? August 11 edition

Well, Media Matters for one.

Beck smears Rauf with falsehoods, innuendo and hypocrisy

Media Matter wouldn't know a smear if all of their writers took turns smearing a talk show host every single day. Oops, they already do.

But wait. There's more.

When I think of Media Mutters, I think of Buffalo Bob from the Silence of the Lambs.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: If I ever have the pleasure of meeting Glenn or Rush in person, after I give them the proper respect, I will absolutely ask them about their choice of advertisers. It has always bothered me that they both promote homeopathic nonsense and other iffy companies & products that exploit the gullible. And I won’t take “Free Market Dictates” as a comprehensive response.

The free market also keeps horoscopes, scratch tickets, and the NYT in business. Sometimes, i think when people have accumulated enough power and respect, they can say “no” to woo-woo fly by night companies.

Just my 2 cents.

Wouldnt surprise me if they have no say at all in who is permitted to advertise. Behind the shows is an array of suits with big decision-making power.

So many liberals watching Beck, I wouldn’t be surprised to start seeing Birkenstock and Volvo commercials.
