Typical racist Kucinich supporters, creating hateful, stereotyped "Joker" posters of the President, then saying subversive things like "After Obama was elected, you had all of these people who basically saw him as the second coming of Christt. From my perspective, there wasn’t much substance to him."

Typical Kucinich supporters ... when will Obama finally force these Ernst Rohm types into silence ... permanent silence?

AuthenticAndrew

They still advertise on FOX, which give the racist hatemonger his platform and he attracts like minded viewers to the network where all of these companies still have ads, so from a financial standpoint it's a win-win for FOX and the advertisers, but the real victory is in the precedent it's setting of a large scale boycotting of something on FOX news. It will be easier to pull off in the future and it's only a matter of time until the FOX news channel itself is boycotted.

For all the tit for tat between MSNBC and FOX news, you will never hear an MSNBC personality say something so blatantly racist. And of course it speaks to the difference between liberals and conservatives. One extends its hand to diversity, the other slams the door shut.

joanie

Thanks, Andrew. I was just going to make that point. Yes, their ad dollars are being distributed among the other talkers.

Beck will probably earn points with his extremist following for this little manipulation of their ad dollars.

chucks

None of this really gets to the original question as to why is Obama a racist and why does he hate white people. Additionally, why does he hate the people that produce jobs, tax revenue and income in this country?

chucks

Meanwhile, "The Glenn Beck" program had its highest rated week ever this past week. At 2:00 PM (5:00 Eastern) Beck does twice what Olbermann and Maddow does in their prime time hours in attracting viewers and is growing weekly.
I really doubt that there will be a shortage of advertisers for this really good program.

Coiler

He only hates you Chucks, because you keep saying, as a white person, how unfair the election was.

chucks

Was the election unfair C? How so.
I know for a fact that the election sucked.

AuthenticAndrew

no no no the real question is why does chucks allegedly wear women's underwear and why is his marriage allegedly in shambles and are these two things possibly related?

joanie

Chuck's marriage in shambles? Chucks, I didn't know. I'm so sorry.

However, I'm sure you'll do everything possible to hang on to that health-care ticket.

Why don't you consider becoming an health-insurance salesman? You're a good sales guy. And you'd love turning down people who need medical care. Imagine the commissions you'd make signing people up and then turning them down when they need care. Why, I bet you'd be their top salesman.

mrogi

Beck attracts 2 million pairs of eyeballs per night. Advertisers salivate at the thought of reaching that many people. Every time a sponsor drops the Beck show two more line up to take its place. Olbermann dreams of getting an audience of 2 million. Unfortunately for Keith Olbermann; his ratings suck the gaspipe.

joanie

God, mrogi, do you have dollar signs for blood cells?

How does that make anything worth watching? At least, I can quit calling rightwingers stupid. You're doing a better job of it than I ever could.

joanie

Are you still watching, Sparky? Or did you get tired of "click to resume?"

I feel sorry for Baird. He has to acknowledge as reasonable some of these insipidly misinformed people. I wish he'd just tell it straight and lost his job. He might actually be surprised.

joanie

Well, it's over. Two things: why didn't he confront some of their idiot statements:

The second to last guy was proud of not taking a vacation in twenty-four years and just getting his business going well and he had his employees behind him. Baird didn't ask him if he offered them healthcare. If he does, he should have pointed out that one catastropic or expensive illness in any one of his workers will send his insurance off the charts.

If he doesn't offer healthcare, need I say more?

And the last guy who sounded like chucks and would rather die a patriot than pay for illegals healthcare - which the bill currrently in Congress prohibits. Brian should have told him he may well die a patriot if we don't get healthcare and insurance costs under control.

These Congress people are too afraid of losing their jobs. We have a stupid electorate and Brian simply wants to make sure he doesn't lose his own excellent coverage at my expense.

One more thing: he never did really take on the expense/deficit issue. We are currently paying more than anyone else in the industrialized world for healthcare. It is already paid for. Any citizenry that can pay a single insurance CEO $100.000 an hour can afford to pay for socialized healthcare.

What a stupid, stupid citizenry you are on the right,

And to the guy who said he'll educate his own kids? God help us if you do. Another generation of stupidity

sparky

I turned him off after he said he was proud that he voted against expanded Medicare for Seniors. I wish he would just admit to being a Repuglican.

Coiler

Its an angry minority looking for a fight, mainly they lost the election and they want the country to fail. They had 8 years of experience.

joanie

They were reading notes. Funny, huh?

Expanded medicare? Isn't that medicare Plan B? That's a bad program. Do I have it mixed up with another program?

sparky

I wanted someone to stand up and ask why it was not considered government intervention when he stood next to Tom "Twinkletoes" DeLay on the steps of the Capitol, demanding that Terri Schaivo stay plugged in? Republicans carefully avoid mentioning that. I always write that on his mailed and emailed requests for money and send it back to him.

mrogi

In a world of Relativity; Money is the only absolute. If anybody tells you different they are blowing smoke up your arse.

Bill

Beck's meteoric rise in the last couple of years really does amaze me. Who in America does this guy speak to anyway?

What is it Glenn....communism, sociallism, fascism? He can't seem to make up his mind. I knew he was off the deep end when he claimed our march towards fascism started with the Mercury dime in 1916 (never mind that fascism as a political movement didn't really begin until 1919)....and then went on and on about some statue or piece of art in New York City that was leading our youth towards the dreaded idea of fascism.

I figure one of these days he's either gonna bust a blood vessel or go Howard Beale/Budd Dwyer on national TV.

Gimme' a front row seat for that.

Or maybe he's just the best snake-oil salesman we've seen in our lifetime.

mrogi

Olbermann gets on his hands on knees and prays every night for a massive audience like Beck. Olbermann TV ratings continue to circle the drain.

Duffman

Right mrogi...I don't particularly care for Beck but this is akin to the way Dori Monson is criticized so harshly herein, yet those who criticize seem to know his exact words and when he said them...go figure. It's call ENTERTAINMENT folks; either you have it or you don't...if you don't you work at NPR or it's equivalent - if you DO you get ratings.

mrogi

The Glenn Beck Program on the Fox News Channel set the network’s all time ratings record last week. Beck drew the most viewers in the history of the station. He destroyed the competition. Beck got more viewers in his time slot than CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, and Headline News combined.

Ex-con

I doubt Olbermann does what you state. I am sure he is content with an intelligent audience who can also think for themselves and formulate their own opinion. With Beck or rest of the hard sell conservative media celebrities and I use celebrity lightly, they are content with morons like you who take every word they say in their demagoguery and there are more of those than people with intelligence. Those who attended McCain rallies are a good example. To folks like you Mrogi, Beck's demagoguery sells and reinforces your insecurity! But again your deity is the humbled dollar!Those who talk the most about money are the ones who least have it. Enjoy your poverty Mrgoi.

Ex-con

Sparky, conservatives usually want the government to stay out of their business but content to use the power of government to push god in the classrooms, enforce behaviour in the bedrooms, or get elected to office to prove incompetency of government. As you point out, the case of Terry Schavio is a classic example of conservatives using the power of government to intrude in people's lives. They are not interested in personal freedoms or responsibilities, but to make sure that the power of government is at their disposal for their agenda from religion and economics to war.

Duffman

Right-on, Ex-Con...'cept you s/have addressed as sparcoil, as you are getting two for the price of one. [smile]

chucks

Proctor & Gamble, Sargentos and a few others are limiting their ad purchases to less controvercial day time shows.
Congratulations to Color of Change as their boycot threats are now killing struggling shows like Hardball, The Ed Show, Anderson Cooper 180 and Maddow in addition to once strong shows such as olbermann, which is now hemorraging viewers.
Just the same as liberal politicians, liberal activists being stupid leads to unintended consequinces.
Bwahahahhahahahahhaahahaha!!!
Maybe MSNBC will just close down.

Coiler


I doubt it Chucks.

MS Microsoft

NBC a network

They have lots of cash
Unlike FOX, MSNBC didnt have to pay cable providers to accelerate its adoption by cable companies. Fox News paid systems up to $11 per subscriber to distribute the network.

chucks

I thought that Microsoft had got out of the cable news business 5 years ago.
(not statement of fact, just thought I had read that before)
I know that MSNBC gets $.15 per subscriber (twice value) and that Fox News gets $.60 per subscriber (half value) from the cable and sat companys.
Plus Fox has so many more viewers over MSDNC and CNN ($.44 per) that it gets huge ad revenue.

sparky

Duffman, I knew it would not be long before you joined Putsie on Steven's Bandwagon for The Insane.

Ex-con..joanie gets after me from time to time for attempting to hold a reasonable discourse with these guys whose brains are the size of a pink jelly bean. But you are welcome to try..

Small government is "good" whenever it protects the status quo of the 50's corporate atmosphere. You know, back when women and "The Coloreds" knew their place.

Did you hear that the state of Texas is now going to require that the Bible is taught in all public schools? I think their governor's idea to secede is a good one.

Duffman

Persist if you must, we'll play along (smile) PS has the goods.

Coiler

Chucks, that was the deal on start up back in 1996. Few cable providers would carry FOX news and this was how they went about it. In July 2009, FNC continued its cable news lead in ratings, but still trailed CNN in cumulative audience.

In response to outrage over panelists on late night program Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld making disparaging remarks about the Canadian military, including "...inappropriate and disrespectful comments on the channel regarding the Canadian Military's efforts in Afghanistan,...", Canadian cable television provider Shaw Communications gave its customers the option of replacing Fox News Channel with another programming option

Duffman

'..how long can fox news, bonneville, LDS church ignore it?'

Back on topic, we all have to learn to 'ignore things' (Hehe)

chucks

So Coiler, is what you are saying is that Murdoch paid cable company's to carry his product in the first place? If that is so, it sounds to me as if the cable company's were reluctent in the first place to sign a second cable news network and Murdoch put his money where his mouth was. How is that a bad thing? In the end, it seems as if he won.
I won't pay for a job, but if I find one that I really want, I will offer to work a week for free so that the dealer can evaluate my performance. I have done it before twice and both times got the job (and paid 4 the week).

chucks

WalMart has cancelled all of its ads on Cable nooz as of Aug, 3. Although WallyWorld has not been an advertiser on Glenn Beck, the company has decided to not advertise on any program that may polarize its customers. This includes MSDNC and CNN.
Censor one, censor all?

Duffman

Hey chucks ol buddy sit back, relax and check This out.

Hey lunch lady, wasn't your dad a part of that "status quo" of the 50's.

nevets

Oh, I just checked that other thread Lunch Lady. It appears not even Joanie is going to get her feet wet coming to your rescue. Feeling lonely?

nevets

Thanks for the news about Walmart Chucks. Now I can stay working without going against my principles.

sparky

Nothing gets by you, steven.

Coiler

steven, you are a sore loser.

joanie

Steven: you are an idiot. Sparky never calls you names. She graciously converses with you and chucks and is respectful. Yet, you, typical of all right-wingers, can't say anything without name calling or put downs.

Now, for the big news Duffo:

I am really Sparky, Coiler, Excon, Drew (right now I'm really in England with my wife and kids), Andrew, and every other liberal that your feeble brain can recall.

Surprise!

sparky

LOL

Hey joanie...do you have any rainbows in your classroom??

On the way home this afternoon, i listened to Ed..Don from Chicago called in and said he knows that teachers in elementary schools promote homosexuality because he has seen pink triangles and rainbows in classrooms. I about drove off the road laughing.

Yes, Duffman, and I am really Puget Sound..be sure and write that down.

nevets

And what would you know about respect Joanie.

nevets

Didnt take you long to get to your moms house huh Sparky. What did you do, walk her around to the back door.

sparky

If you say so.

Duffman

Naw, Sparcoil we've got the goods on you and your Sybil personas...and we'll just play along and let you be your silly duo.
