How about you summarize the main points, so we don’t all have to watch a 16 minute video? :)

I’d appreciate a summary, too. I’m trying to watch, but the video runs for a few seconds and then pauses to buffer. At this rate, it’s going to take an hour or more to get though it.

Manning saying Beck was muzzled by Fox news on birth issue and that was why he left Fox...could it be true??

If only that guy could put a little emotion into his diatribes! Sheesh.

Seems like everyone has a bone to pick with Beck, yet they can't seem to stop talking about him.

Interesting how Manning has jumped so enthusiastically on the Trump bandwagon... "the new George Washington"??

He’s generally saying Beck is leaving FOX because he can’t keep up the charade about Obama’s eligibility, and Roger Ailes won’t let him talk about it. Manning says Beck found his integrity and is leaving to be true to himself. I guess there was an article on the Blaze that laid this out, but it was removed.

I don’t think so. Beck was hanging up on anybody calling his radio show about the BC months ago. He makes snarky remarks on O’Reilly about anyone talking up the issue. I think high ratings equal large revenues except in Beck’s case where Ailes can’t get any sponsors for that time slot due to the ongoing boycott. That and I think Ailes and Beck clashed over content. Beck is too down on Bam Bam for Fox’s liking. IMHO.

"How about you summarize the main points, so we don’t all have to watch a 16 minute video? :)"

Says Glenn had an article on The Blaze saying he was leaving Fox because he's seen the light about Obama not being a U.S. citizen, and in good conscience he couldn't stay if Roger Ailes and Rupert Murdoch wouldn't let him publicly express his change of heart.

Says Ailes was contractually able to force him to take the explanation/confession down.

Also rants extensively about O'Reilly and Limbaugh being sellouts on the birth certificate issue. Says repeatedly that O'Reilly will not get off as easy as Beck...that he is going to "JAAAAIIL!"

The rest is more or less ranting about how the fact that we have a criminal in the White House should supersede every other issue of the day, then he signs off in the name of God about a half dozen times.

I think he is wrong about Rush Limbaugh. Rush has brought up the BC many times and has called him out as being a usurper.

January, 2010:

On the air today, popular radio host Glenn Beck mocked "birthers" and claimed there is a concerted campaign to get those questioning Barack Obama's constitutional eligibility onto the airwaves – a strategy Beck said would actually benefit Obama.

"There's always games being played behind the scenes at a talk radio show," Beck said. "Rush has always called them seminar callers. But instead of being coy with the seminar callers or with you, I'm just going to expose the game that is going on. Today there is a concerted effort on all radio stations to get birthers on the air."

"I have to tell you, are you working for the Barack Obama administration?" Beck scoffed. "I mean, that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard."

Beck must have read the comments here this weekend and now is in CYA mode to jump on the “birther” bandwagon now that Trump has mainstreamed the issue.

I’m not sure what his BC position actually is other than he hasn’t been touching it because there is quite frankly bigger problems with Obama than a missing Birth Certificate.

I did not know about that posting on Blaze. Did anybody read it before it was taken down? Its all news to me. I always thought Glenn was totally opposed to the birthers. I have listened to him just scorch the issue. I even emailed him once an called him and O’Reilly sellouts.

Excellent summary.

There is no way to reconcile Beck’s Birther comments with the idea that he is a Closet Birther.

***NEWSFLASH*** Glenn said he IS NOT leaving FOX he is just not doing a 5pm show...he then went on to say that those who think this means they won will one day pray that he is BACK on a 5pm.....meaning I think he is hinting at a primetime spot.

Rush did say today that 0 had posted his BC and it had been validated by Hawaiian officials. I recall the BC is a poor outdated forgery. Wish Rush would review that information.

"...other than he hasn’t been touching it because there is quite frankly bigger problems with Obama than a missing Birth Certificate."

Really?

A bigger, more serious or potentially (demonstrably?) destructive problem than a criminal illegally occupying the White house? Whose every buill signed into law, and every policy descision enacted will have to be overturned and undone once the truth comes out?

Whose intentional bankrupting of the country will leave our future generations living in gulag-ghetto poverty for decades to come if not forever.

Praytell, what is the "bigger" problem than that which we currently face?

This is accurate. Beck has attacked the Birthers repeatedly

If Beck truly has a “see the light moment” then I need to hear more...and from Beck. If he really is no longer an Obama Supporter I will take back the things I have said about him

I doubt Beck has changed....because Beck hangs around with O’Reilly at FNC, and, has bucked his TV bosses in the past while at CNN HLN
