Poor People Will Soon Be Homeless — Thanks to ACORN


New York State’s highest court has cleared the way for an ambitious $5 billion taxpayer-funded development to be built in Brooklyn.
On his TV show yesterday Glenn Beck pointed out that a group that claims to protect the interests of poor people, ACORN, helped make possible the deal that will make current inhabitants of the Atlantic Yards [...]

Dear ‘60 Minutes/Vanity Fair Poll’


I’m enjoying your bemused/disgusted reaction to your own poll, in which Rush Limbaugh was voted the “Most Influential Conservative Voice In America:”
In a “Rush” to judgment, Mr. Limbaugh scored the most with 26 percent of the vote. His competitor, Mr. Beck edged out the last two Republican vice presidential candidates by a nose. It goes [...]

Beck’s “Musings” Were a Joke, but Media Matters Didn’t Get It


The Media Matters irony detector must’ve been in the shop on September 16, when they roused themselves to mock Glenn Beck… for making a joke.
Here’s what they wrote:
Beck: [politically outspoken UK band] Muse is “brilliant,” buy their new album;
Muse: Please retract your endorsement

Then Media Matters helpfully posts five minutes of audio from Beck’s radio show. [...]

What Would Sotomayor Do?


Before it was known that the 2016 Olympics had been awarded to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and that Chicago had been knocked out of the selection process in the first round of voting despite President President Obama’s whirlwind visit to Olympic authorities in Copenhagen, Denmark, Glenn Beck led his audience through an exercise in calculated [...]

Ann Coulter is Right: Glenn Beck is Being Targeted for Destruction


More people turning against Beck, but Coulter offers a great defense.

Crackpot Chronicles: Van Jones, Glenn Beck, Ron Paul, Rorschach, the Truthers, And Me – Part I


Coming up in multiple discussions of late has been the subject of “Conspiracy Theory.” Former Green Jobs Czar Van Jones was primarily pushed out of his post because he signed a statement sympathetic to those who preach that the government was somehow involved in orchestrating 9/11.
More recently in the debate over Glenn Beck, the talk [...]

Media Matters mocks heavily armed man who hunts his own food and may be insane


That’s right: Media Matters is now going after… Ted Nugent.
Today the Media Matters website proclaims: “Nugent jumps on Beck bandwagon: Obama and Carter the “real racists” who “have been destroying black America for decades”
Then, using their patent-pending “clever leftist rhetorical trick” technology, “senior fellows” at Media Matters today cut and paste excerpts from something the [...]

Bias on FOX News


FOX media commentator Bernie Goldberg’s weekly appearance on the O’Reilly Factor turned into a shouting match about whether certain unnamed talking heads on FOX News were spinning their biased views as facts.   This was in response to O’Reilly’s question as to why FOX is under constant attack by the “mainstream” media.
After conceding that FOX’s conservative views [...]
