Thom Hartman said he actually felt a little sorry for Glenn...I don't. Any attention is a good thing, even if it makes him look silly.

Radio Queen

I can't remember the last time anyone on this blog had anything positive to say about Glenn Beck. Why, oh why, Mr. Hood, do you continue to beat the horse long after its demise???


It's the only place I can keep up with Beck. If not BW, then who or where? It's all radio after all. I think...

Latent Gay Dori (not Monson)

Beck is the shit that Beck's shit wipes off its shoes.

Maggie,  Dori's favorite neighbor

are you implying that Dori is a latent gay> that's outrageous and actionable by Dori. I am forwardign him a copy of your post. I am Dori's favorite neighbor and he is the epitomy of a man's man. Very masculine and not effeminate in the least. I find him a terrific turn on.


The travelling frankenscents and myrrh salesman flops again.


I listened to Glenn Beck only once for fifteen minutes. He was spouting some conspiracy theory that was so far off the wall I wanted to throw up. I never gave him a second chance.

Now that he no longer has a national bully pulpit, he is no longer perceived as an important force, so why bother supporting him or even showing up.


I think you are closest to the real reason, Ray. He can't do anything for anyone anymore, so they have abandoned him.


Sparky's nailed it. Another reason: while conservative US evangelical Protestant enthusiasm for Israel, especially of the pre-rapture sort, is a financial windfall for Israel and its politicians, it really doesn't enjoy a whole lot of support with the Israeli public. They have some trust issues, and some bad associations, with far-right Christian demagogues.


I think it is a matter of visibility. Olbermann has lost clout since moving to Current. Beck has lost cloud since moving god only knows where.

Sharpton's cut his hair . . . or pulled it back. Looking very dignified.

Maggie,  Dori's favorite neighbor

it was clear thaT O'Reilly viewed Beck with disdain when Beck got his own show on Fox, in the afternoon. My take was that he viewed Beck as cable news tv's version of the Hula Hoop. O'Reilly was right.


This sounds about right.. "On Fox & Friends Sunday, anchor Clayton Morris admitted that Fox News factcheckers have confirmed that man-made global warming is “certainly” real, but argued that it “doesn’t matter” because climate denial is popular among Fox News-watching conservatives."

Maggie,  Dori's favorite neighbor

In his Foxnews meetups on the air with Gelnn Beck, O'Reilly could call him "Beck", in that drill sargeant manner he uses on his show as part of his NYC tough guy persona, as much as he liked (making him simply look foolish, as probably the only grown adult in America not in the military or a police force that still calls other grown men by their last names) , but it still had to just anger this already very angry man tremendously, that Beck had amassed a fortune of 80 million dollars in a few years of fadlike media prominence while he had only ponied up about 50 million after more than a generation of sitting or standing in front of various national network cameras and radio microphones. The score matters to a guy like Bill O'Reilly, not just the enjoyment of playing the game, and this score just can't be one that Bill can easily stomach.


Glenn Beck's time has expired. Like Sarah Palin, reality shows, etc these sensations are being recognized for what they are, phony images who came on the scene at opportune times but are being recognized for their true colors. They made a bunch of money through this fortunate timing but when you start peeling away the layers they surface for what they are, no substance. It's bye bye time for Beck and his ilk and I think we will also be parting ways with these stupid reality shows too.

Latent Gay Dori (not Monson)

I'm not implying that Dori (Monson) is gay. I'm implying that Glen Beck is a piece of shit. Super-shit if you will. Nucular powered shit. A putrid piece of self-serving, delusional, destructive excrement. Shit doesn't have a conscience. Neither does Beck. The man is a piece of shit.

Maggie,  Dori's favorite neighbor

now that's something an entire, grateful nation can get behind. Thanks, latent Dori


Shit has a useful - actually, essential - function. Beck does not have a useful function. Therefore, Beck is not a piece of shit. He's worse.


I listened Glen Beck on fridayaugust 26 He was laghing at those peple in Africa who are starving...those who dont know that they are upside down.. according to him..Empty barrels make bigger noise as they say ...But people dont a mistake of listning to him They already told him in Israel enough if he has the simplset ..in his head Please Glen Beck mind your own business Dont talk specially about things you dont know like the hunger in africa Ok


Oh no, not again. Bwaahaha!

Dori's (not Monson) Gerbil Dealer

StarTheWonderDog is one of those critters that has coprophagia. No wonder since Dori only feeds it Purina products. That stuff will kill you in due time.

Now go give Maggie a big wet kiss... Star


Oh, I think we know who the real latrine fly is. bwahaha


No kidding as round and round the pot you go . . . bwahahahaha.

Posting such a useful weblog. Your site isn’t only informative but very artistic too. There tend to be very couple of individuals who can write not too simple articles that creatively. Sustain the great writing !


Very nice article but everybody seem to hate Glen Beck. Poor guy. If only he takes time to read all these comments he would know how many haters he had all this time.
