    Well as a result of the myriad of Beck threads I've ended up watching about 10 different clips of this guy's show on FOX news.

    Do people really take him seriously? He is a conservative version of Jon Stewart. He is a comedy news program IMO and like Jon Stewart you can't take comedy news people seriously.

    Why do people get so upset with him and take him so seriously when its just a comedy news show not a serious reporting show?

    Truth is scary sometimes isn't it? If you have an open mind you should read his book, "Common Sense". It will open your eyes to lots of interesting stuff.

    Maybe the difference is one is on an alleged NEWS network and the other is on a COMEDY network. :cuckoo:

    Like you say "alleged". Beck is a political comedian IMO.
