  • One of the last voices of reason in the media today.

    You either love him, or hate him. Whatever, it really doesn't matter. But Glenn Beck is a voice crying in the wilderness, in much the same way that John the Baptist was, only instead of preparing the way for the Son of God, Beck is a humble voice simply trying to warn the citizens of America to it's upcoming peril, if major changes don't happen soon.

    Everything he speaks on his shows is backed up by facts. He starts every show with, "Don't take anything I say as fact...look it up yourself". I have done this and have found him to be absolutely truthful. He gets a lot of hate mail and negative reviews from liberals, and from people who don't like him revealing the truth, but let's face it, being the proclaimer of truth has never been popular. Many have given their lives for the truth and for this country. Glenn Beck says he would do the same and I believe him. As a former Democrat, I've watched my old party fly off into lunacy. Absolute bizarreness. And then somehow think that their so-out-of-whack views are "normal". They are indeed caught in the "strong delusion" promised for this generation.

    CNN is so far unbalanced in it's news that it's unwatchable. MSNBC is extremely liberal as parent NBC News is. The others are just as warped and out of balanced. Only Fox News is close to the center, and maybe with a slight lean to the right, but it's the most balanced news source we have. And I'm glad that Beck is a part of their lineup.

    There is a reason why over 3 million people watch the Glenn Beck show daily. It's to hear the truth.moreless
  • Well, not good.

    I think Glenn Beck is ridiculous. He is basically a pathetic person who is just like everyone on Fixed News. He knows all the tricks of the trade to curving the facts and spinning it in the way the network wants to spin it. Long story short, Fox News is a joke. They basically have entertainers than actual news reporters. I can't stand to watch them bend the truth on every chance they get and what's even more ridiculous is the people who eat all this garbage with a spoon. I will say that Glenn Beck doesn't surprise me by his lies. Thank you.moreless
