Glenn Beck' Gold Sponsor Siezed By Feds

Hehehe:The Superior Gold Group, one of Glenn Beck's reliable advertisers, has been put into court-ordered receivership based on evidence that it was ripping people off. But wait...there's more...now how much would you pay?: Putting a company in receivership is a pretty drastic and very rare move for a judge in a civil case. It does not bode well for Beck's other and much bigger gold advertiser,...

Conservatives Now OK With Dissent Because They're Doing It

Oy. Here's Glenn Beck on yesterday's radio show (audio here, at Media Matters): I was somebody that during the Clinton administration said, Can we please stop saying that the president is killing people in our national parks? Can we please stop saying that? You know, because what I said at the time was, if we believe that then we are farther down this road than you even imagine. You can’t have...

Flying Crap

ThinkProgress catches a Forbes.com interview with Glenn Beck, in which Beck says he "could give a flying crap about the political process," adding "we’re an entertainment company."No. You don't say.What Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann do is unquestionably not traditional news, in the objective, "just the facts" sense of the word...but neither of them are even close to the sort of rodeo clown...

The Thomas Paine Glenn Beck Doesn't Want You To See

Right here. A taste: It is a position not to be controverted that the earth, in its natural, cultivated state was, and ever would have continued to be, the common property of the human race. In that state every man would have been born to property. He would have been a joint life proprietor with rest in the property of the soil, and in all its natural productions, vegetable and animal. and There...

Glenn Beck's First TV Appearance

Dunno who dug this up and how they managed to find it, but hats off to Jeff Hoard over at TrueSlant for doing the legwork to get the background - including a quote from the other guy in this video promo for station Y-95 in Phoenix, Tim Hattrick (a must read). Looks like not all that much has changed on the Glenn Beck Show from those days, LOL, right down to the "aah-OOOH-gah" and...

Beck Vs. Beck

Jon Stewart, as ever, uses razor sharp barbs to help us feed Glenn Beck a steady diet of his own words. And, as usual, Stewart's target comes off looking truly lame and craven.Best line: "I'll tell you what really doesn't speak well of our health care system: that in those sixteen months, the hole they stitched up in Glenn Beck's ass hasn't healed enough for him to stop talking out of it."Three...

Through The Looking-Glass, Darkly

...or at least dark-humoredly. Sadly, NO!, one of my favorite political satire blogs, hits the nail on the head (in an uncomfortable, Jonathan Swift-esque fashion): During Bush’s presidency people like me were called traitors on a fairly regular basis because we didn’t show Bush the proper deference when he’d do some goofy shit like choke on a pretzel. Now we have guys on the teevee that...
