I agree. This guy is a total fraud who probably doesn’t believe half the shit he says on TV. I used to listen to his radio show a few years ago before he went on Fox. He was nothing like the personality he turns into on TV. But now, he’s a totally different person. He’s a sensationalist who ocassionally makes sense due to the sheer amount of shit coming out of his mouth.[/quote]
He’s making 25 mil a year now. Hence, doing something right, even if it’s just being in the right place at the right time.
You’ll never know what a politician or media personality truly believes. All you have to go on is what they say. Beck sounds like a conservative libertarian, so you might as well consider him such. There is no shortage of people who are openly hostile to libertarian, conservative and capitalist ideas, so why go after the people who are on your side, even if only in rhetoric?
Bill O’Reilly is another example. He attracts flak from all sides. Personally, I have never had a problem with him. The way I see it, he is right on at least 75% of the issues, so what is there to complain about? I’d rather go after influential people who are wrong nearly 100% of the time. Wouldn’t you?
As usual, people aren’t thinking rationally. You should never profess to “love” or “hate” a person you haven’t met. It’s sheer idiocy.[/quote]
Thank you, it is amazing how many people say they hate or love someone and yet have never met anyone more influential than their grandparents.
