I just heard on Beck's radio show that he is supposedly going to interview Obama on his show on Monday (21st). He was talking about recent news from yesterday that Obama was making the rounds on all the major networks but was not appearing on Fox. He said that it was not wholly true, and he would indeed be interviewing him on Monday. He said more info will be on his TV show tonight.

Anybody else heard anything about this? I mean, of all the unlikely interviews of the present day, Beck interviewing Obama has got to rank up there.

I wonder if the questions will be canned...

Why? What does it matter to you if Tha' OGB listens to Beck? Are you somehow smarter or more clever or more sophisticated for not listening to Beck?


No, damn Drew do you always respond to everything by ripping off heads and shitting down people’s necks. I just put up a post on another list insinuating that I’m full of shit (and how!). I have never come across as being right about everything (unlike some people on RSP *cough*). The angle of the question was: Do you listen to him voluntarily because you believe everything he says; Are you in the middle of nowhere and that is the only station you can get in your car? ? or Do you think his make believe, tinfoil hat world is hilarious? I was hoping the answer was the latter. Beck’s lunacy has been discussed extesively elsewhere so I won’t waste my time discussing it.

I didn’t imply any intellectual superiority at all, YOU DID (and far too often do).

The only thing that proves that I’m not an idiot is the admission that I might not always be right and that I DO NOT know everything.

My point exactly, hell I've been rooting for those unlovable losers for 25 years. soblue I don't feel superior to anybody except maybe NASCAR & Wrestling fans. whistle

Seriously, I love to jab a people (who doesn’t) but I almost * never feel superior to other people or that people are inherently inferior because of their beliefs/ likes/ ideology. I do feel that some people are misguided, but not inferior.

* I try not to use always and never, because they are always wrong and are never accurate. (and fully expect Drew to dig through everything I've ever written to prove otherwise.....)

Beck huh?

Thanks largely to Dan I have finally watched several of his broadcasts. He is a dramatic guy and trends a bit towards weeping and pleading with viewers to "just do something". I ought to update my review of his show from a month or two back.

Overall, I don't see anything weird about him and no doubt his ratings are good because he is touching on something many people agree with. But I don't watch on a regular basis so I may not have an accurate picture.

One thing stood out when I watched his show yesterday... well, late last night on the repeat of it. He was covering the ACORN kiddie prostitute scandal and the guy made a valid point. He ran a clip of Obama talking to the ACORN and SEIU supporters and promising them they would be a part of crafting the implementation of Obama's vision of transforming America into... into... into whatever Obama envisions transforming it to.

Beck asked rhetorically if there could be any denying that ACORN is a seriously flawed and dangerous organization and that the current President promised them they'd have a say in what America will look like when Obama is done. These are good points and good questions to ask because they weren't asked by the media when Obama was running for president and they certainly should have been.

Beck appears to have an extensive theory of how radicals in America have gained positions of power and are pushing an agenda that dates back to the 60's and the radical (socialist) movement that gained power back then. I haven't seen quite enough of his shows to separate the wheat from the chaff but what he is saying isn't anything different than what was being said about the radical left in America 30 or 40 years ago.

Just because a person points at a loose association and collusion between like-minded individuals and names it a conspiracy doesn't mean it isn't one. Nor does it mean that person is wrong. I think there is merit in what Beck says is happening and perhaps his dramatics and style are exactly what people need in order to listen

Overall, the more attacks are mounted on Beck the more people will tune in to see what the fuss is all about. In that sense it makes Beck quite a bit craftier than the mainstream media and the people who dismiss him because those people feel compelled to dismiss him in a very public way.

The only bad PR is no PR. The more the mainstream tries to marginalize Glenn Beck the larger his audience will become. He's a smart man and he understands what the mainstream doesn't... that 75% of Americans don't trust or believe the American media is worth a shit.

Which leaves Fox News, Glenn Beck and Andrew Breitbart and a few others that are rapidly gaining audiences and supporters.

I've said it before, I am no fan of Obama... but I do think as president and certainly as Obama's presidency he gets plenty of media coverage without getting interviewed by Glenn Beck. Why on earth would he go on that show? It only gives false legitimacy to Glenn Beck... Beck is a hack shock jock not a journalist,

Obama is going to be on Letterman as well. How is Letterman any more legitimate than Glenn Beck?

I'm amused at the whole murder and rape thing also... it's part of what I mentioned earlier - the fact that people out there make things up (even humorously) and post them online just drives even more viewers to Beck's show.

Back in the 80's and 90's when the BADD mothers were picketing stores selling D&D I thought about sneakily organizing a BADD chapter in Boise so they would picket my store and get me some free advertising. Sadly, nobody in Idaho was Bothered About D&D.

Same principle though... what you resist, you become.

Parody or not, Fox News has never denied that Glenn Beck Brutally Raped And Murdered A Young Girl in 1990. In fact, Glenn himself has never denied it. There is no evidence disconnecting him from this heinous crime and he refuses to come clean on his whereabouts at that time. Personally, I can't say whether Glenn Beck Brutally Raped An Murdered A Young Girl in 1990 or not, but it sure is suspicious.

Letterman sucks just as bad as Beck. I have not seen his show in many years but last I watched Letterman was not spewing bile to millions, just absurdity... an equal amount of absurdity as Beck, but just not as damaging. I think Letterman is an ass and unfunny but with 20+ years as an institution he's pretty relevant. Beck is a flash in the pan shock jock. I doubt he'll have the legs that what's his name had... the one from CBS AM in NYC that they made a movie about and a TV show...

You fail to see the sarcasm I guess. The murder and rape is akin to calling Obama a socialist or comparing him to Hitler. i.e - people making things up... its the same thing with the Beck accusation, except that with Beck no one believes it and it is sold on its face as parody.

While there is a difference in degree here, isn't there? I am sure that peopole wouldn't believe it if we called Obama a murderer and rapist becuase that is obviously parody. Most people, I think, believe calling Obama Hitler is also parody.

The socialist charge holds a little more water because there are some demonstrable similarities. The real sneaky thing is trying to equate socialsm with murder, just saying the former comparison is absurd because the latter is -- unfortunately, the two comparisons are parallel so you can't draw that conclusion.

Obama is right of center... calling him a socialist is laughable.

Still, the Beck "accusations" are just as silly Beck himself. No real need to compare it to the Obama nonsense...

-1 to the Obama team. :what:



I'm not on the Obama team and I think it is funny. I made that comparison, I am not sure what the motives were with this... you'd need to talk to the dude who created that website. In his "origins" the whole thing was from a single post on Fark where someone riffed on Gilbert Godfry's joke about Bob Sagat, substituting Beck instead.

I think you can separate the two anyhow. Beck is still Beck without Obama.

First thing to come to mind... I retract. (I still think he's not Hitler or a socialist). Beck is just an ass and the parody suits his antics.
