Bill Press: Beck a 'Ticking Time Bomb'; Warns Ailes Will 'Be Sorry' They Gave Him a Show
Newsbusters ^ | November 29, 2009 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 11/29/2009 1:35:55 PM PST by Rufus2007

Glenn Beck - he has one of the highest-rated shows on the top cable news network. He's had a number of bestselling books and he's called attention to some unsavory characters working in the Obama administration. Yet - he's somehow considered to be a risky business decision for the powers in charge at Fox News.

On CNN's Nov. 29 "Reliable Sources," host Howard Kurtz pointed out Glenn Beck accusing Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., of "hooking" for the so-called $300 million "Louisiana Purchase" provision of the health care bill.

"He's talking there about Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu, who did get a provision in order to get her support for breaking the filibuster on the health care bill - $300 million for Louisiana," Kurtz said. "He said she was ‘hooking,' basically called her a prostitute."

It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession. I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first.

Ok, OK. She sold her vote, not her body. But allowing for a little hyperbole, Beck was absolutely right.

Why doesn't HE get his undies ruffled wondering why it is that no one is investigatiing both Landry and the White House for BRIBERY offered in order to pass their healthcare bill. It's specifically against the written Constitution's rules regarding bribery of politicians. If it's not illegal bribery, then Beck is correct.

yes he and Sarah are so dangerous because they are not PC.

How about looking and reporting on what Beck says.

You know things like having racist, commies, socialists, mass killer lovers etc are news you know and effect me.

ACORN and SEIU getting away with our money is news ot me and effects me.
Fraud in the Govt effects me

so how about reporting what he has found instead of the usual left wing name calling.

You see some of us watch Beck because we find out things which are true(never any denial in the white house though they say he lies but never point out anything specific).

Him saying this woman had whored herself out is not affecting me.

Ever noticed they say he lies but can never prove where he lied.
Since Beck got a phone for them to correct him they have stopped saying he lies.

I’m not sure you’d call it prostitution when the politicians screw us, but we’re the ones paying.

Sort of a twisted Prima Nocta, if you ask me.

I’m not a big Beck fan, but I agree with most of what he says,, I just don’t like the way he says it.

Telling it like it is, is his strongest point. And thank God he was willing to tell the American people the truth about Mary.

He is right. Beck should issue a retraction and apologize to prostitutes every where. They only rent out their bodies. Ms Landrieu sold her integrity.

I can see it now, at the next Fox producers meeting. "Hey you know, On CNN's Nov. 29 "Reliable Sources," host Howard Kurtz said that Glenn Beck called Sen. Mary Landrieu a prostitute for taking a $300 million bribe to vote yes on 0bamacare." "Oh no we'd better fire him even though he's cleaning CNN's clock"

CNN, MSNBC and all of them can only dream they had Fox ratings, and Glenn Beck is a big part of that.

you know what the left do not understand is that they’re media is in the gutter because folks hate the way they act like little kids and hate how they do not tell the truth.

You see CNN,MSNBC,NBC etc one will watch or listen to you but then they hear something else or someone or on another station .
Now that person says hang on CNN/MSNBC was not reporting this or they never told the truth.

You think that person will still watch you or watch where they get some news which affects them?

Air America went in the gutter because of how they talk shows hosts acts.
Conservative talk radio is alive and well because conservatives tell it how it is.

But I'm amazed how much Fox News lets Glenn Beck get away with.

When Bill Press makes such statements about Beck and fails to say anything about the hatred and venom constantly spewed by Matthews and Olberman, well, Press make himself look like a shamless, partisan hack, or an unobservant fool who's too uninformed to have a public forum.
