Any Glenn Beck fans out here in DM?
What do you think of his fake tears?
Do you think it is appropriate for political pundits to fake their emotions to bolster their public appeal?

They do much worse to up their ratings ... you can't cure stupid ... I know a person who watches this man every day, prays for his health each night, and quotes him till I wanna scream ....hate, fear, racist, homophobe .... sad sad little man with nothing but hate in his heart ... and the folks who watch him are just the same

I'd love to kick Glenn Beck in the junk with steel-toed boots.

Then we'd see some tears from that pathetic disgrace of a human being.

JuLeah- I know a lot of people who put the guy on a pedestal like that. Some of them listen to him and interject with "a-meeen!" and "preach it!"



LOL

He's not a political pundit or a serious newsperson. He's an entertainer, straight up. And he makes a lot of money doing it. If he honestly believes all the bullshit he says, then he needs a mental evaluation. I think it's a character, which is sick is wrong and irresponsible, because there are people out there that think he is being totally honest and buy every damn word that comes out of his mouth. He makes me want to puke, to be perfectly honest.

I think he needs to take up drinking again. That way *no one* would take him seriously... we'll except for the other drunks sitting at the bar... ""The only [Katrina victims] we're seeing on television are the scumbags." Doesn't that sound like drunken ramblings to you? I mean... there are people who actually take him seriously right? If not he wouldn't have his own show. I find it hard to believe. Perhaps it's people like me, who just watch his show to laugh at the absurd and ridiculous shite that comes out of his mouth. Maybe we're the ones keeping him on the air. :P I call a boycott on Glenn Beck, this includes you Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. I know he makes your writers' jobs easy but maybe if we ignore him he'll go away. Like that annoying kid in class who draws attention by sticking random stationery up his nose.

OK, so I said earlier that Palin can bite my left nipple, so Beck can bite my right. He is foul and disgusting. I'll repeat an earlier comment: A sorry excuse for a human being.

as much as i despise this man and everything that he stands for, this particular video doesn't really tell the whole story about this particular situation. he was shooting for a magazine, and of course since he's always crying on his shows they wanted that for their magazine shoot.
now that doesn't excuse his all around douche bagness, and full on lying that he does on a regular basis. i just hate it when people make videos seem something that they really aren't.

No...I don't think any "news" industry folks should use emotional appeals to manipulate their audience...that's all Beck ever does...I find it nauseating.
