Glen’s position was he was born in Hawaii, what did I miss?
watch the video
sounds good. adds to the energy. run with it.
How about you summarize the main points, so we don’t all have to watch a 16 minute video? :)
I’ve watched the video. Which article does Rev. Manning think The Blaze took down?
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??
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.
Ping. Check back later when we know what the story is.
“Manning saying Beck was muzzled by Fox news on birth issue and that was why he left Fox...could it be true??”
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.
Thanks for the summary!
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.
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."
“I dont think so. Beck was hanging up on anybody calling his radio show about the BC months ago. He makes snarky remarks on OReilly about anyone talking up the issue. I think high ratings equal large revenues except in Becks case where Ailes cant 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 Foxs liking”. IMHO.
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.
