Frontpage's Man of the Year: Glenn Beck
Frontpage Magazine ^ | Dec 31, 2009 | David Forsmark

Posted on 12/30/2009 10:26:34 PM PST by SmartInsight

And the winner is ... Glenn Beck

In the past 12 months, Beck rose from hosting an obscure TV show on CNN Headline News to a terrible time slot on Fox News' cable juggernaut. Regardless, his show at 5 p.m. became a ratings smash hit and attracted direct angry response from the White House.

Beck's show now attracts a far bigger audience than his competitors on CNN, MSNBC and Headline News combined. In fact, he doesn't really have any competition - on any given day, Beck can attracts 20 times the audience of Hardball with Chris Matthews on MSNBC.

Beck made the cover of Time magazine, was one of Barbara Walters' "10 Most Fascinating People of 2009" and makes an almost nightly appearance as one of Keith Olbermann's "Worst People in the World." (A great honor, no doubt.)

I searched and nothing came up. I am surprised someone didn't post this already.

Congratulations, Glenn Beck and wishing you continued success in the New Year.

Palin, Cheney, Breibart, and Rush were also high on the list.

Beck says a LOT of good stuff.

But he's a mormon.

Severe crack in the armor. Sorry. Just the truth.

Just wondering, if Beck was an Atheist but still the great conservative that he is, would you not like him?

That's a severe crack in your judgment. Our fight to restore the Constitution is not a Holier-than-Thou religious contest.

Take that attitude elsewhere.

The fact that Beck is a Mormon is not relevant, just as it is not for Mitt Romney.

Beck is a person who believes in upholding the Constitution and he supports views that are conservative in nature. He’s not a Dem or a Pubbie, but is middle ground in his politics.

His personal choice of an organized religion has never entered into any of his expressed views on radio or TV to my knowledge. .........So, why even mention his religion unless you’re overly biased against anyone that doesn’t adhere to whatever religion you have chosen?

"Just wondering, if Beck was an Atheist but still the great conservative that he is, would you not like him?"

My distrust of where he was coming from; my questions of his foundation would be the same.

Any person who can cause the left to collapse into convulsions and fits of hysteria as much as Beck has done deserves high honors.

And that's your opinion. I thoroughly disagree with you on that statement.

It is of the utmost relevance, imo.
