    The guys at MSLSD must be annoyed since they can't draw flies.

    Nobody forces people to listen to him they seem to want to, whenever I go on a rant about Mush Mouth Matthews or some of the other "left wingers" I'm told to change the channel, don't listen, don't watch, thats what the people did to Al Franken & Jeanne Garafool and it worked, they folded and were gone (nobody watched or listened to them)

    Is there anyone who believes a single word this pimp says anymore? This is amazing!...in the same way that it's amazing that the Kardashians have a TV show and that Justin Beiber sells more music than John Legend.

    I worry for the culture. Seriously.

    But it wasn't, it was about Glorious Glenn..

    Why does the mod from the right always want to hijack a thread...

    I am having fun with the fact that Beck can attract an audience (based on the contract awarded by Clear Channel) as much as people on the left don't like him and people like Ed Schultz can't.


    Remember Air America and all that money down the drain?

    Let me refer you to P. T. Barnum.....(even though it's only attributed to him and he never actually said it.)

    He actually used to admit to being an entertainer. Many of his viewers didn't seem to get that. I'm also not sure if he ever repeated that once we got really popular.

    it's interesting that his tv show got canned while he's apparently still very popular on the radio. are wingnuts more likely to listen to radio? did he tone down the show for radio because listeners can't see his chalkboards?

    But, hey, good for him. Like you I put him with Bieber, Kardashian, et al, but I give him (and them credit) for taking the money of the folks who willingly hand it over. It says more about them than him (sadly?).

    Yeah, that's true. Don't hate the playa.

    Compared to TV, talk radio demographics are much older, male, and conservative. The same grouip that gets grumpier and, consequently, less tolerant as they get older. I know I am. But if you take the populatioin of Americans who cannot think critically because have less education and worldly experiences, combine it with the talk radio demographic, then what you get is Beck's audience.

    All the popular ones left and right are entertainers and they get ratings from bloviating. The way I see it it's just like why people watch soap operas and buy the gossip rags like Star.

    Been saying the same thing for a long time wistah....

    -Fascination with cell phones, texting, Facebook, Myspace (or is it MyFace and Spacebook?)
    -Reality television shows
    -Americans desire to be famous (all the singing shows)
    -Pawn brokers becoming famous!
    -Alligator Hunters, junk guys, fat people, mob-wives....oh my!

    Faggetaboutit!! We're toast!:confused:

    I used to watch him sometimes ... grew tired of him promoting his crap for sale.
    The worst one on that channel was hannity ... like all he needed was a mirror to kiss himself every hour. He's not fooling anybody guy goes home and he's a nobody a wanker if ever there was one in that business.

    You and I are just alike IP! I used to watch O'Rielly....but his show is geared toward low-average intelligence and I got bored. Seemed like the same 'ol, same 'ol show after a while.

    I also agree 100% regarding Hannity. Honestly, I'd love to whack that guy upside the back of his big head. Tossing the football around...I look at him and ask myself, "who is this guy?"

    The only difference between you & I is that I wouldn't mind being a wanker....whatever a wanker is. It just sounds right.
