Here's a tidbit from the fascinatingly-written article:
In the course of his remarkable rise from cable sideshow to Fox News superstar, has never really faced a serious challenge. To a man and woman, his opponents only made him stronger, strengthening his every-guy-against-the-world image and putting some meat on the bones of his near paranoid ravings about dark forces aligning against liberty, and himself. When cornered, he only became more vulnerable, more tearful and, at least to his fervent followers, more likable.
"Paranoid ravings"? Could it be that he's actually passionate and RIGHT on what he feels are "Dark forces aligning against liberty..."? "his fervent followers?" Really? Here's more from the article:
"....ideas that have no place in Fox New's tightly regulated framework"? As if they don't discuss both sides of campaign finance reform or any other viewpoint every single day on Fox? If they were only spouting conservative viewpoints, who'd watch, how interesting would that be? What would Beckel and Powers and Williams and Hill and all the other liberal FOX regulars and guests SAY if their viewpoints weren't welcomed??!! And, of course, Beck isn't NEWS, he's OPINION, like msnbc's Olbermann or Maddow, why suggest he's part of Fox's NEWS's "tightly regulated framework"? !! (Beck, tightly regulated? Have they watched his show before?!)
The Glenn Beck show was uncomfortable yesterday, no doubt about it. But, I don't think it was so uncomfortable for anything having to do with BECK, I myself felt highly uncomfortable that we have such a whining, back-pedaling, probably lying weasel of a man in the American government. THAT was highly uncomfortable to me. As much as I personally find Beck difficult to watch sometimes (mostly because his passion and his facts and figures remind me of what terrible shape our dear country is in these days), I thought he was less ego-driven than just purely disgusted, for the same reasons I was, in his interviewee yesterday. As Beck himself said to his audience after the show:
"I think this is the first time I have wasted an hour of your time."
Massa was a waste of time, a real disgrace and a real whiner. And, if the title of this story doesn't show TIME MAGAZINE's constant disdain for the Right in slamming Beck like it did, I hate to think what will. Did you see the show? What did you think?
