What did Beck expect? Massa is a certified lefty loon with homosexual tendencies.

Beck was warned!

Bad. I wasted an hour watching it. Massa was all over the board, but Glenn did not ask probing questions.

A waste of on Air time. Seemed a little shakey to me by avoiding direct questions, but then he’s a liberal.

“I think Massa is somewhat reality challenged..”

Or, he has been threatened with FEDERAL PROSECUTION and lawsuits over his antics, if he speaks of crimes....

Remember, these radicals have no qualms about personally destroying anybody.

This should follow each show.

I liked the part about being approached by Rammbo. He said he couldn’t be intimidated. Mr Tough there Massa. I find that hard to believe from a dude that kisses dudes.
Can I have my hour back?

Like Beck, I was frustrated that Massa didn’t give any specifics about how corrupt the system is.

Massa just talked in generalities. Very disappointing.

I rarely watch those shows but I thought today I would give it a shot. There were some very interesting tidbits. I’ll let you know what they are after the break.

I’m really ticked that I left work early to catch this.

Glenn shouldn’t have bit. This guy is a slimeball.

The one statement that jumped out was that there would probably be text messages coming out as there was lots of banter back and forth.

There is truth on both counts. Yes, Pelosi and company put the squeeze to get him out, and yes, he’s a pervert.

Beck blew it. He should have tactfully demanded more dirt on Ram Emanuelle and the other 0bama thugs. Beck let Massa defend himself too much. Everyone wanted more stuff on Obama and Rahm

Beck should apolgize for conducting a very poor interview. Massa has nothing to apologize for.

Beck was right. It was a waste of time. But almost all of his shows have turned that way.

We know this Massa Guy doesn't like Emanuel. Why didn't Beck ask him what he knew of and thought about the other big names in Washington? Nothing about Obama, Reid, Pelosi, even Beck himself. What do the Washington schmucks think about the Becks &c? What a lame interview!

Glenn was right. I didn't get anything out of it.

Massa seemed to be about as slimy as they come. Glenn allowed him to control the interview.

Glenn should have done what Bill O’ and Greta do: He should have taped the interview and not done it live. He then could have thrown it into the garbage.

The guy IMO refused specifics or names because of the lawyer bills it would cause he and his family IMO.

I think GB is a poor, poor interviewer... he seemed to not know what he wanted to know from Massa. He groped for thoughts that never seemed to adequately materialize. His schtick does not translate well to a serious venue, he needs banter from the radio studio to generate quippy comments but cannot think well on his feet when he is the sole interviewer.

Yes, it was disappointing, but it wasn’t Beck’s fault, he gave it his best shot, and you could see his frustration. Massa’s got some problems, including his possible battle with cancer. Doesn’t it make you feel great about the people we elect to run the country?

A sad, broken, strange man that got caught.
There are reasons why some jobs require a clearance. Unfortunately, our elected officials positions don’t require that.

Just like most interviews with congressmen who are going to “blow it all wide open”.

Nada.

I wrote in the other thread that the interview should have been over right after he backtracked on his original statement of having been pushed out over healthcare. It was obvious at that point he wasn’t going to spill any beans. No..he wasn’t pushed out..he takes full responsibility. Riiigghht.

At 15 minutes Beck should have started asking for names. Then at the half hour, when it became obvious that it was going no place, Beck should have cut it off. He said he had guests lined up and should have gone to them at that point. That it went on for 60 minutes was a crime on Glenn's part.

Well he is a Democrat isn't he? These days it kind of goes with the territory, it wasn't always so.

Looks like Michelle Malkin and others were right afterall. It seems like they had some inside scoop that the poking the finger in the shower story is all Massa had. And we didn’t need an hours of him to learn that.
