It may in the end have little impact on the bottom line of Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation, but a fast-gathering boycott by some of America's best-known conglomerates of Glenn Beck, a conservative commentator on his Fox News channel in the US, is beginning to take on embarrassing proportions.

Anyone that doesn't like Beck should turn him off.
I can only take so much of him but I beleive he is an honest man and he wants the best for our country.
Obama wants to weaken and dismantle our power and position in the world, and look at the people he surrounds himself with. Communists, terrorists, Radicals, Revolutionary socialists, tax cheats, and corrupt liberals.

Obama should be prosecuted for his good squads, his ACORN THUGS and union baboons. Obama is the worst president ever.

Democrats make a habit of accusing others what they are guilty of.
Obama is nationalizing banks, auto, and now wants to nationalize the healthcare industry and the energy industry. This is fascism .. This is exactly what Hitler did. Obma sending in his ACORN goons to stifle dissent is also reminiscent of Hitler.
Beck is rightly pointing it out.
But you liberal whackos keep up the protests ... it is pushing Beck's ratings higher ... The same result that happaned when you attacked Rush.

Glenn Beck doesn't 'tell it like it is'- he 'tells it like what will get me the most ratings and listeners'! He's one of those that doesn't care what kind of publicity he gets, as long as they spell his name right.

He's definitely a Faux News type of guy and fits right in with the rest of the wingnuts on that network, just like their boss Murdoch!

HA HA!! Too many people just go off of what they hear. Obviously the left never paid much attention to him when Bush was in office because Beck spoke his mind about Bush's policies just as much as he does Obama's. Beck is a Libertarian.
I have watched his show and he grinds on my one nerve :-) He is always yelling like his points will sound more important the louder he gets. He acts like a lunatic and his message is lost through all of his silly drama.

He is the biggest drama queen in the news :-) Entertaining? Maybe

Someone i would take seriously? Never

Glenn Beck used to wallow in the pack of the rest of the right wing talk show hosts. But he has found his own niche and put the rest of the pack behind him. That is because Beck was willing to take the huge army of right wing listeners and put them on the street. By mobilizing this loyal army through the 912 project, beck put his army on the street for the tea parties and now to disrupt town meetings. These were only training exercises for a full scale street level revolution. In that way, Beck is far more than a right wing talk show host. He is an activist and a leader of the rebel army. He has changed the paradigm by introducing a new way to govern. No longer do we have to put up with cumbersome and unpredictable elections that only result in the enemy cheating us by winning. The new paradigm is governemnt from the streets and from beck's radio microphone. The leftie loonies should fear this new government because, equipeed with legal right to bear arms, this government will go very badly for them indeed.

Beck tells the truth and opens peoples eyes. Look no further then the fact that his cable show is #1 among news cable (this includes msnbc and cnn) and Fox is far ahead at #1 cable news and #3 cable show overall. Hussiens plummetting poll numbers are proof people are listening to Beck and are leaving the false messiah.
You probably heard on Fox news that they are number 1 also :-D Could you show me where you got that his show is number 1? Seriously, I don't believe you.

Libs are scared shitless of Beck, Limbaugh, Palin, Hannity, Fox News and conservative talk radio in general.
The left is going after Michael Savage and Glenn Beck now and tried to marginalize Limbaugh but failed.
I think Obama will do whatever it takes to silence the few sources of criticism reaching the public because he knows that sunlight if the best disinfectant to his liberal agenda.
You are mistaking embarrassment for fear :-D I think if Obama wanted him out of the picture he would have done it already. If Glenn Beck goes down will be from his own accord. But good idea blaming Obama in advance :-)

This is a fine example of why they are not taken seriously :-) One who can't be brainwashed would have no fear for this kind of entertainment.

Trust me on this one! It is not fear that his advertisers have withdrawn from his show! It is pure undiluted embarrassment!

<quoted text>Glenn isn't right wing and it's obvious that the writer has no clue about Beck. Glenn calls them as he sees them. But what I can say is he has punched a giant hole in the vail that covered the democrats and their sponsers. And I'll stand with him when he says that partisan politics are destroying the nation. Anyone who who vote on party and not principles doesn't deserve the right to even cast a ballot.
I'll say this that democrats said that desention was the highest form of patriotism during the Bush years. Are they and the media no longer patriots?
I don't think he's far right either, he's an independent thinker forming his opinions based on facts...Like all on the air should be doing. And yes I remember the left stating that dissent was a form of patriotism when they were doing it, now when the right protests they are called racists, nazi's or extremists, what a bunch of B.S. All democrats are doing by condoning this is isolating the majority of this country. I think we will see some democrats losing elections soon.

The only party I currently see taking over and creating laws to silence conservatives is the democrats. I just want less government in my life and no increase in taxes, not sure how that is related to being a nazi. I like my healthcare and don't want it messed with, that's nazi?

Are you one of those children The Daily Kos and Moveon dot org recruited to contact Beck's advertisers to withdraw support from the show? Does your mother know that?

Beck is "normal". American "normal". A few of his views may be negotiated, but he is "normal". And it takes a man with the issues of his personal life to point it out because most of us in America who are "normal" are chastized as rabid hating SOB's. When the caca really hits the fan, the "normals" are the one who pay the true price for all. Well now, for the first time sinceour eldest were born, they are starting to protest what is going on. It takes a village, to keep Hillary alive in pleasurable surroundings.

ROTFLMAO!!!

"Too" Right wing?

We've been looking for someone with some common sense.

He can keep walking right...as far as I'm concerned. And I know that I'm not the only one... because for a guy with no sponsors, his ratings are through the roof.

Why don't you Lefties out there try to prove Glenn wrong. Instead of just hating him because he is on Fox News.

He has laid out VERY, VERY detailed information about Obama and his band of COMMUNIIST Community Organizers (Czars).

Prove him wrong, if you can.

Prove that Van Jones isn't a radical Communist, he admitted it himself. Prove him wrong.

He has laid out how AIG, SEIU, AFL-CIO, Apollo Alliance, Color for Change, are all connected and all are Anti-Capitalist. Prove him wrong.

You're trying to shoot the messenger, and ignoring the message.

Prove him wrong, if you can.
