Beck 'ain't no Rush Limbaugh,' says Mark Levin
MarkLevinFan.com ^ | September 16, 2009 | Mark Levin

Posted on 09/16/2009 6:08:48 PM PDT by Sergeant Tim

Mark Levin was asked in an email today by Politico.com who has more influence, Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh. Mark's answer was clear (hear the brief audio at the jump).

The only thing missing when Mark said it was this music playing in the background...

So what? Who needs two Rush Limbaughs? Mark, I think you’re very good at what you do...but leave Glenn alone. He’s one of us. Thanks.

I totally agree. In terms of output and knowledge of government.

Glenn and Rush are not in competition with each other, sounds like someone wants to stir things up!

Beck is ok for light listening. But he’s just not anywhere near levin or rush for intelligence. I’ve never been able to get through an entire show of glenn beck...a little too silly and a little too loopy. I still like him though. For about 45 minutes.

So Levin is afraid Beck is cutting into HIS book sales? Do I sense a little paranoia here?

Beck is doing a terrific job as town crier....Let Beck be Beck!

I got that right away too. Why ask anyone to rank them against one another in a popularity contest? Pity that Levin even dignified it with an answer.

I think it’s pretty clear that Mark Levin doesn’t like Beck and some of the other conservative talk show hosts. Maybe if Mark Levin was a little less nasty, he’d get further because I think he’s a lot smarter than Hannity, who he does seem to like.

All are conservative and that’s great. I love him, but Mark needs to lay off. Infighting undermines our efforts. United we can make a bigger difference.

Yeah I heard internet nutjob Alex Jones bashing beck earlier. Jones claiming Beck is secretly working for the Obama administration to make conservatives look crazy.

Anyone who knows Jones will get a laugh out of him calling anyone crazy.

Mark Levin is a fool for falling for the State-Run Media’s attempt to sew division on the Right. And so now he has.
I expected better from him.

I think Glenn is doing better work for the country right now. While Rush, Hannity, and others are still in political commentary mode, or simply echoing the news, Glenn is actually digging deep.

I like, and listen to, all of them, but feel Glenn is doing more to actually help end corruption.

Right, Beck is no Limbaugh...Limbaugh won’t get involved in helping grass roots Republicans over come the establishment Republican candidates, but then he’ll fight like hell for them to win. Well, except for McCain.

Glenn Beck has serious libertarian leanings and has been just as critical of statist repubbies as he has been of Democrats.

That’s why some Republican pundits hate him.

On the other hand, I admire him for his honesty and willingness to speak up and buck conventional wisdom.

Glenn needs to watch his back though; he is getting folks on both sides extremely riled up.

Comparing Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh is like trying to compare Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby. Both are great at what they do.

Mark Steyn is a work in progress, not quite ready for radio, but he has potential.

Barry Farber is an excellent talent, and would be well employed to train smart writers in the art of being a good radio talker.

I wish I knew what happened to Dave Dawson, he was on WABC many years ago, went back to KC, and I don’t know what happened to him since.

Beck is doing good work at the moment, but he needs to prove that he is for real... for the long term. I've seen so-called conservatives lose their way... then come back.. .then lose their way again. I've heard Beck call himself a conservative, a libertarian, and back to conservative... I think he is just now figuring things out. I like how he's doing it.. .He's asking questions... Levin has a lot of answers though... Levin knows for certain where he is coming from and why he believes what he believes.

I wish all these guys didn't let us see so much of their egos, but it isn't such a bad thing. Competition is good... Competition of ideas is great.

Plus... Levin is particularly on edge lately because after writing a solid conservative book and selling like crazy and having huge radio ratings, he gets totally ignored. I'd love to see someone actually try to debate him... on the conservative shows he goes on everyone basically agrees... I guess people who know history and the law are scary to the Obamedia.

Mark is really bothering me with his almost daily attacks on Glenn Beck. It is so childish and i have never heard him stoop this low. Mark, you are the great one, get over it and get back to your job you do so well. I have honestly stopped tuning in as often over this. WE ARE ON THE SAME TEAM.

Levin is smart and has his moments, but I can't pick him up here. Glenn Beck is entertaining and does decent TV depending on the topic. I appreciate Glenn Beck's exposes on the obama regime, but Rush is the master. Hannity and O’Reilly could go away and I wouldn't miss them, especially BOT, but NOT Rush. He should ask for more money! LOL!

It has never been in Rush's business model to get his hands dirty and I'll take some crap for that, but Glenn told people to build this thing on your own and we did, Rush never has or wanted to go the activism route. Also Glenn could care less about the GOP. Where Rush and I part is with taking back the GOP. Like a exotic car that is wrecked, somethings aren't worth fixing...

You think Levin has it out for Glenn, listen to Boortz, last week he didn't want to touch any topic Glenn had....

Half the time, Glenn Beck's show is pretty good; but I frequently find myself turning him off after about a minute because it sounds like it's going to yet another re-run of the same end-of-the world melodrama that he's been doing over the last year. Somehow, Rush manages to do a different show every day; and on the rare occasions when he sounds like re-run, it's because he's on vacation and it really is a re-run.

I listen to Limbaugh. I watch Beck. They are both very effective. But if you look at the events of the last few weeks then you have to give the nod to Beck right now because the Dems are dancing to his tune. And that is not taking anything away from Rush. He's been dynamite lately and in the long run he has been The Man. No doubt about it.

The real bottom line - a stupid comparison. Levin should have just passed on the question.
