    Note: The below is taken from a link, which is cited below it. It is satire.

    Some sources claim that Glenn Beck may be responsible for the rape and murder of a girl in 1990. Classic Glenn Beck style reasoning suggests that he is responsible for clearing his name of these atrocious acts. A new site “exists to probe the vicious rumour that Glenn Beck raped and murdered a young girl in 1990.”

    Note: This is satire/parody, but a valid example of the fallacious reasoning Beck is known for.

    Here is some of the evidence:

    * Why haven’t we had an official response to the rumor that Glenn Beck raped and murdered a girl in 1990? (source)
    * Some say he ate her remains in a drug-filled pagan ceremony. Some say. (source)
    * “R” is for radical “A” is for astronaut “P” is for paper “S” is for super-douche “T” well, I don’t have that yet, but if I did, this would spell “rapist” (source)
    * Fox News Poll: Should Glenn Beck deny rape allegations? Vote Now! (source)
    * Omg I cant find a single entry/item/article ANYWHERE that says Mr. Beck is not a rapist. (source)
    * He has exposed himself as a guy over and over again who has a deep seeded [sic] hatred for consensual sex or the “No Means No” culture, I don’t know what it is. I’m not saying he doesn’t like consensual sex, I’m saying he has a problem. This guy is, I believe a rapist. (source)

    He may be a rapist! (Now make a solemn serious face, turn your head slightly upward and then side to side slowly as you firmly press your lips together.)

    Yes you provide us an excellent example of how one invents issues to besmirch the reputation of innocent people.

    Denial of the charges gives the detractors still more fodder to keep the issue alive.

    Since so many people do believe that where there's smoke there must be fire this completely disreputable technique of character assassination is rather common in the world of politics.

    People enjoy kookiness, it's entertaining. See: I Love NY, I Love Money, Rock of Love, Tool Academy, etc. etc. etc.

    Of course the most whacky political commentators will have the most viewers. Straight-forward honesty, no embellishment = not entertaining.

    Typical left tactics, as others have mentioned, they don't like the message, can't debunk or answer the questions, so they try hard to destroy the messenger.
    Nothing new here.

    I was just about to say what Mad Scientist already said. I agree to a point, but there is something that keeps viewers coming back to Beck and I don't think it's just 'kookiness'. I've even thought about watching Glenn Beck because of all the hype. Maybe this weekend.
