When Glenn Beck came to Fox News his show was brilliant and a cant miss program that was interesting, creative, and a real threat to Obama and the Liberals. During the past year and half is show has steadily declined since it began and has now become completely unwatchable. For his first 6 months I never missed a episode and now I could care less about Beck. There are many reasons I lost interest in Beck and no longer watch and listen to him.
Glenn Beck is not a conservative and both his TV show and radio show have become annoying. Beck has devolved into nothing more than a fickle Paultard that is both condesending and patronizing. Glenn Beck is not a conservative and not really for the advancement of conservatism. Beck has bought into the Ron Paul agenda hook line and sinker. My take is that Beck has run out of stuff to stay and is now boring and idiotic. He is not advancing the Conservative agenda and is pretty much promoting the Paultard agenda that seeks to undermine real a real conservative agenda. Plus his annoying theme song on the radio is awful and really annoying just like Beck.
Glenn Beck is a huckster and with nothing of value to say that has not already been said by smarter people that are not fickle Paultards. Beck puts out a crappy book every few months and has his one man shows and comedy tour and even goes on tour with Ted Baxter, himself OReilly. Glenn Beck has lost and I contend does not really believe in anything. His CPAC routine was terrible and it may have been the point where I began to see him for what he is and stated liking him less.
The Ron Paul/ Judge Napolitano brand of libertarianism is not conservative and in fact undermines Conservatives. Ron Paul at the 2008 Republican Debate seemed like a darn infiltrator and Beck now seems like a darn fool and a boring one at that. Libertarians are under-miners and not on the side conservatives. Beck is a flake that is for sure and both he and his shows are tiresome. Glenn Beck seems to lack the bite and credibility he once had. The Friday show is a complete waste . I am tired of history lessons from a guy that did not even go to college and uses a chalkboard in 2010. The act is idiotic, boring,and repetitive. I think we can safely say Glenn Beck is no Rush Limbaugh, he is not even Sean Hannity.
The only time I heard him talking about VAT, Fairtax, or national sales tax was as a replacement for our current income taxes, not in addition to.
Best to just ignore the clowns. Their attacks are so similar to the left because they sit on the same foundation...nothing.
I run the Beck TV thread and I don’t agree with everything he says. If I expected him to say what I wanted all the time I might as well be a liberal sheep.
His carping on slavery is nonsense.
What took you so long????
Beck is a libertarian, not a conservative. If I know it from my infrequent visits to his TV show, you should. Beyond that, his TV show is about educating the masses about American history, and the growth of the progressive/communist movement. For that, it’s invaluable.
Quit griping like a child and stop watching if you don’t like it. But rants like this do nothing but divide those who love America. Or, is that your intention...?
Beck is kind of hit and miss. Some of his shows are very good, especially those where he is going after Obama cronies. Others elicit a: WTH is he thinking? To be fair, he is trying to be a lot more pithy, historical, and philosophical than the typical Fox News faire. So, its easy to understand why some of his shows fall flat. At times, he does come off as somebody who is looking to use his show as a political springboard.
He is entertaining sometimes. Had a good rif on George Soros this morning.
And furthermore, he.... Uh, time for Dennis Prager.
No, it's based on the truth. And America needs a dose of truth; especially the masses who've not been educated in history for some decades.
You should check out Flapp Jackson in the Morning this Morning, he is really interesting.
I agree...he started off pretty good, but now it’s all “me me me” and history lessons. I used to DVR him everyday, but I cancelled it.
Beck listed all the things that Lincoln did in direct violation of the Constitution but then excused Lincoln because adherence to Constitution returned after the war.
Hey, Glen. There was a reason for that. Lincoln was dead.
Why bother with an intelligent response to such an idiotic, inaccurate, and poorly written piece? Did Erickson write this? I sure hope not. Glenn does not agree with Ron Paul. Believe it. He has said so to me personally in not so many words. Beck plays a critical role in destroying the left's key narratives, and putting them on the defensive. The left is OBSESSED with Beck and spend an inordinate amount of time attacking him, while we conservatives are mostly amused. It reminds me of "Patton" wherein the German High Command is fixated on Patton and convinced that Eisenhower will use him for every major offensive. Not comparing the two men of course. Just showing how even if you don't care for Beck, you should understand that he serves a big role in the war against the progressive left.
I think the realities of getting boycotted by all the symcophant lefty companies regarding advertising along with a desire appear more unbiased has overtaken his true character.
I said to my wife the other day, he is become the real version of Howard Beale from the movie Network. I wonder when he gets killed on the air?
Agreed, why would anyone take this “critique” seriously, it is among the worst writing I have ever seen here.
Slow learner? ;)
I wonder, bigblackdog, why did you bother to post this? Do you agree with him? I find that sometimes Beck is boring and off target. Sometimes he upsets me. Same with Rush and the others.
But, mostly, he is helpful, enlightening, and exposes things that we should know about our government and the actions being taken in Washington and the WH.
I guess he can't be brilliant all the time, and maybe his problem with failing eyesight is causing him trouble doing really good research and coming up with really good arguments anymore. I will wait longer to see if he gets his steam up again. In the meantime, childish criticism does not help anyone.
Good. Beck attracts and educates millions of people. He is off base on some things but that shouldn't be a hanging offense. Why are some people so eager to pummel an ally just because he doesn't entertain them any more?
I love Limbaugh but he spends more time talking about himself nowadays than anything else. Hannity isn't deep enough to hold my attention for 30 seconds. Let Beck be Beck. If you don't like him just turn it off. Don't whine about it.
“Carping on slavery”. Oh, so you have a problem with non-revised facts about slavery? Are you then endorsing revisionist history? Beck is teaching that slavery was not an all black problem, just like the holocaust was not an all Jew problem. IE:The first slave owner was black. I would say that is a large fact that is overlooked in the NCAAP mission statement. More carping please.
