    For a fly? At that point I would have showed the middle one and said "F U!"

    I reckon it's fake. But the sentiment is disgusting. He's a real life troll.

    Wow, something I agree with Beck for once came at the end of the video.

    The Republicans and the Democrats are fake. They all are the same politicians who preach different ideals, but all have agenda's and special interest groups/big business lining their pockets......

    His hands are empty. It's just a crass attempt at a metaphor by The Fox Jester.

    So much truth about that FOX news anchor in that bolded statement.

    PETA isn't opposed to killing animals; they kill an overwhelming majority of the animals they take into their "shelter" in Norfolk, Virginia.

    Ok, now your tracking away from the point. Geez an aminal shelter that puts animals down, SHOCKING!

    Honestly this tread is trying to make something out of nothing. Fake or not it is irrelevant anyway. Why are people whating Fox news, then getting all mad about it. Quit watching FOX news.

    Just my opinion.

    LOL! Hes one episode away from the mental asylum, I couldn't even pay attention to his message.

    Also the frog didn't go into the pot.

    It seems that killing animals would be contrary to PETA's stance that "animals deserve consideration of their best interests regardless of whether they are cute, useful to humans, or endangered and regardless of whether any human cares about them at all (just as a mentally challenged human has rights even if he or she is not cute or useful and even if everyone dislikes him or her)."

    I have some serious doubts that of the 2,491 PETA kept in their shelter (meaning not returned to owners) in 2008 being euthanized was in the "best interest" of 2,369 of them. We're not taking about a state pound, we're talking about People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals' shelter; that's also why it is shocking, apparently ethical treatment doesn't include no kill shelters (of course anyone aware of PETA's agenda probably wouldn't be terribly shocked in the first place). If PETA didn't spend so much money on ridiculous ad campaigns they could probably easily afford to keep every animal at their shelter.

    CNN and MSNBC need to watch this so they can figure out how to get ratings.

    We no longer have Bush to criticize, Fox is the next in line.

    No, they won't, because the MacRumors PRSI forum will already have it covered with its daily, new FoxNews thread. ;)

    Oh, that was lame.

    You see the frog squirt out of Beck's hand at the last instant (in the box). Then you see Beck not throw a frog into the water. For that matter, you never even actually see any boiling water.

    This guy is the biggest doofus ever.

    They're also saying that he mentions the frog was fake after the YouTube clip was cut short. I didn't watch it, so I don't know, but I wouldn't put it past the people that posted the clip to edit it so that it looks worse than it really was.

    Fox news has been a laughing stock since it's inception. Bush or not. The only thing more ridiculous is the people that try to defend it.

    I don't think he really put a frog in but the whole concept is absurd, unsurprisingly.

    I think there are much bigger things to be all over Glen Beck about, not the least of which is what a condescending knucklehead he is.
