    The same survey that said FOX's audience has increased in the last 2 months also put the average age of FOX viewers at 64.5 years old.
    Who would allow Glenn Beck to talk to their parents or grandparents the way he carries on? It is a creepy way to do snake oil sales, completely wierd fakery, an obvious act.
    Or else Beck is a crazy man and the head nodding fearful suckers who can't tell a lie from the truth are thinking he is a deranged gifted Soothsayer.
    Beck and Stephen Colbert will be competing for the same Emmy - Best Lead in a Fictional Comedy Parody of Real Journalists.


    Stephen Colbert ripped apart Fox News host (and New York Times cover boy) Glenn Beck Tuesday night, mocking his 9-12 project, meant to conjure the spirit of compassion and camaraderie Americans felt on September 12, 2001.

    "We weren't told how to behave that day after 9/11, we just knew," Beck says to describe the project. "It was right, it was the opposite of what we feel today. Are you ready to be the person you were that day after 9/11, on 9/12?"

    "Ready!" Colbert shouted, decked out in a gas mask, holding a gun, and wearing adult diapers.

    Colbert then used a classic "Daily Show" tactic, exposing the hypocrisy of Beck's 9-12 project by highlighting comments he made on September 9, 2005.

    "This is horrible to say, and I wonder if I'm alone in this," Beck said on his radio program that day, "you know it took me about a year to start hating the 9/11 victims' families? I don't hate all of them. I hate probably about 10 of them. But when I see a 9-11 victim family on television, or whatever, I'm just like, 'Oh, shut up!' I'm so sick of them because they're always complaining. And we did our best for them."

    "The 9-12 project is not for families directly affected by 9/11, just people building their careers on it," Colbert said.

    Colbert went on to mock Beck's now infamous tendency to cry, and to launch his own "democratic experiment, the 10-31 project."

    "It will be scare and balanced!" he joked.

    Gee, that's exactly how I'd describe Keith Olbermann.

    The truth can be told by which one tells the truth.

    Olberman was right about all the things he reported on Bush and the war.

    The Fox news channel turned out to be wrong on all the defending of Bush and the war.

    Stay with the guys who got it wrong if you must but no one is going to think it smart.

    Beck is on a fake news station, that spews non facts (Murdoch even said it), and Beck is the hysterical school girl screaming the sky is falling.

    At least Olbermann reports REAL facts.

    And O'Reilly? He's just an incredible asshole. Did you see his latest in ambush interviews?

    If Olberman reported a Fox story and Fox reported an Olberman story, you'd still be saying Olberman was right. :rolleyes:

    Get your news from many sources, rather than just one.

    Thanks. That actually made me feel better.

    What I find funny is that you think the Democrats are the problem when it is so fucking obvious that the real criminals were the GOP. They helped the Oil companies, healthcare companies, defense companies, and manufacturing companies fuck America over. Did I forget any industries?

    You probably didn't get fucked over as hard as some did, so you have the luxury of remaining ignorant. You're probably an older lady who has enough to retire, so none of what they did affected you enough to wake you up.

    Didn't your retirement take a hit? Is your husband expecting a pension?

    Or maybe you have been affected but you are too traumatized to understand who it was that screwed you.

    I know people like you exist. I just hate hearing from you.
