It's not a mole at CNN. Disbelief in sky-fairies might be an elephant in his family room.

Gee, Glenn Beck says something he thinks is negative about CNN. What a surprise. Even though he's not on the air on Faux every day anymore, he still gets paid quite handsomely by Faux News to do his 'specials', which mostly appeal to the very special people who know quite well what the seating capacity of the short bus is.

Besides, if he doesn't cry, he doesn't really mean it.

Is anything that Glenn "Crybaby" Beck says relevant?

Relevant to the reality-based community, no. Sadly, it is highly relevant to Tea Party America and other fringe areas of Lower Wingnuttia.

Not a good metaphor - the elephant symbol is that of the GOP, not a very hospitable group for (free)thinkers.

I recommend as an alternative to Beck and Fox the best ones on MSNBC - not all of them. Chris Matthews is a hot-head emoter (is there such a word?) Some are more narrowly focused. But Lawrence O'Donnell on The Last Word was one of the very first to point out that the tax law in the case of the socalled scandal, originally stated and still states that the EXCLUSIVE purpose of groups in that category is to be social welfare. In 1959 some functionary of the Eisenhower Administration issued a regulation defining exclusive as primarily, which of course is not a correct definition. The real scandal is the tax-dodging and the political-contribution dodging that the Citizens United case, plus the warped regulation, make possible, and which is what the Republicans want to defend without ever admitting that that is what they are up to. Their attack is a cover for what they really want. Big hidden corporate donations to independent groups - so called - that they can claim separation from, though they are run by Rove and mini-Roves.

The other good ones on MSBC, besides Rachel Maddow, of course, are Chris Hayes - 8 Eastern time - and probably Steve on Sat and Sun AM -
(he's newer as a sole host and I am waiting to find out how he does)
Rev/ Al Sharpton at least focuses on instances of voter suppression, and racial issues - but is so/so otherwise. And Ed focuses on labor issues and is very informative on those.

Fox and Beck and Rush are essentially traitors to the entire planet. They are for profits for their oil and gas pals, even if it destroys the climate and various species and ecosystems, and the economy, etc.

CNN is mediocre. too much of a rush to get news first, even if not accurate. too much pandering to dumb folks and their interests. too much bias, however well hidden at times.

The great ones are on NBC - Pete Williams, and Engel. And Brian Williams seems mostly OK. Diane Sawyer on CBS was a Nixon operative.

hitting one's self in the head with a ball peen hammer is a good alternative to Beck ans Faux. Less likely to induce brain damage also.

Glenn Beck is unusually incurious, abnormally unintelligent, amazingly inarticulate, fantastically uncultured, extraordinarily uneducated, and apparently quite proud of all these things.

Why Fox News Channel Is An Industry Joke or Welcome to Info-tainment Tonight!

http://www.turnoffyourtv.com/networks/foxnews...

Relying on the Fox News Channel as your only source of news is like using MAD Magazine as a legitimate source of news. The Fox News Channel's reporting style is so biased and skewed that trying to obtain any real information from a news report is quite challenging. Fox News is a joke because it provides info-tainment rather than reality-based news coverage. Fox News Channel is a "news channel" in name only.
