    While I do not like many of the policies of both the Republicans and Democrats, I like Glenn Beck & Rush Limbaugh.

    Just because we don't agree with someone, does not make them a Nut Job.

    Actually, Glenn and Bill O'Reilly are extremely popular with advertisers. Ad companies are fighting for air time during their show.

    What makes him a nutjob is pushing lies and twisted truths using "logic" to piece them together with no actual evidence.

    Except for Geico, Walmart, Sprint and 30 or so others who have all pulled their advertising from Beck's show.

    You are right, however, that disagreeing with someone doesn't make them a Nut Job. This does.

    exactly and if you noticed that beck was off last week or the week before the reason was that he was forced by fox unfortuneltyy fox lacks something and couldnt fire him.

    True, I did read that article about the 30 odd companies pulling out, but I was generally saying there are companies who want to be seen during his show.

    That video link was crazy. He might just be a Nut Job for that haha

    Don't complain here--write a letter of complaint to his remaining sponsors. If they hear from enough of us, he won't be on TV for long ...

    No, there aren't. Obviously 30 major companies don't want to be associated with the whackjob. That's why soon you'll only see Shamwow and Snuggie commercials during his show, and it's not because they're buying time during Beck, it's because they buy time on Faux News late at night but due to empty slots in Beck's show, Faux has to use their late night ads during Beck's show at late night prices (the 30 advertisers during his show were paying much higher prime time rates)

    Many people take vacations around this time...

    At least we know that TV isn't being censored.

    He broke records in viewership this week from what I have heard, the boycotts won't last long and I doubt they are hurting to find replacements with that kind of viewing market. I would advertise my product on a left radical show if it got enough viewers.

    If this thread is going to end up being a collection of youtube videos of glenn beck being nuts, it's going to be a loooooong thread.

    The bottom of this page has some really excellent examples.

    IMO, more often than not people who disagree with someone's views agree with an opposing or conflicting view.

    If Beck is blasting socialism, marxism, fascism or totalitarianism (feel free to pick your flavor of any administration, regime or party) then there is a level of acceptance by his critics of said political views.

    Wrong- we disagree with lies and distortion of the truth. Anybody can have a POV, but if you're going to justify that POV with lies, then it's not worth anything.

    And sadly that's what the US right does on most issues. Especially the important ones like healthcare.
