Glenn Beck To Target Jon Stewart After Fox Exit - Comments and Message Board

The Deal's picture

The Deal

Captain Ahab has found his whale. The reason this inflated failed shock jock is going after Stewart is because when he laid all his chips on the table with an event that would "change life as we know it". Stewart came back and kicked his can with an event of his own. Everybody can deny it but that single event showed Beck's "juice" ain't what he thought. And it was a fact not lost on Fox. This is another quite measured re-invention of a media performer to spice up a tired act. John Stewart matching wits with Glenn Beck? Mr. Beck Central casting couldn't provide a better "unarmed man" for target practice.

If anyone saw the Daily Show clip by Jon Stewart you will agree that was some of the funniest material I have ever seen. In fact it will air again today as a rerun. Tune in and watch how Stewart captured the psycho babble and antics for this nut job Beck! LMAO!!!

I wish this article would get it's facts straight. The "advertiser's boycott" was ineffective. Beck had more than enough advertisers. The "ratings decline" was so small that it is ridiculous to mention it. Beck is as popular as ever.

So is Beck 37 as stated in the beginning of the article, or 38, as mentioned towards the end? Or did he have birthday while this was being written?

Like rest of the information in this "news article", they have Beck's age wrong. He is 47, born Feb. 10, 1964. His ratings really haven't declined much at all. You can make numbers do anything, especially when you take the single highest rated show and the single lowest rated show, yeah, that's going look like a big drop. Keep dreaming liberals, Beck isn't leaving the public square, he's re-loading. Oh! the rhetoric!

You morons that think everything in life is one big joke are the root of the problem that is facing us all right now. You call Glen Becks broadcasts physcho babble, but his statements are backed up by facts and occurances that are happening now. But you would rather listen to pea brained half ass comedians who would rather ridicule the very system that has made them very wealthy than offer something constructive to improve it. You better get your heads out of the sand because we are living in doom and gloom right now.......

I find Glenn Beck's voice to be a refreshing and independent opinion on national and world events. I am tiring of hearing the same point of view. We need some new ideas to solve our problems. Obviously the same old, same old is not working liberal news media.

Glenn Beck to be refreshing? Oh definitely an independent opinion and national and world events. "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 beause they're always complaining." -"The Glenn Beck Program," Sept. 9, 2005. "The only [Katrina victims] we're seeing on television are the scumbags." -"The Glenn Beck Program," Sept. 9, 2005. Just 2 stuipd quotes, out of many others, that Glenn Beck has made.

I am very interested to see where Glenn Beck goes next. I am so glad there is someone out there that isn't afraid to say something when something is wrong. We need more people in the world like Glenn. Thank you for all that you do Mr. Beck. It is appreciated.

CTR123 and Greg Scott.......two more mental cases. Glenn Beck has done what for this country? Make up stories and send dooms day scenarios across the airways? Are you kidding me? You actually believe the crap he's shoveling? "It's the end of the country as we know it"......really? I'm still waiting for Hitler to march down main street or our government to fall and turn Socialist. Even Fox thinks he's gone over the edge with his far fetched ideas. You probably both believe in the Easter Bunny too. Get a life....and a brain.

Thats just rich - Sorry Glenn but Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert do NOT " occupy the space of comedy alone" - Glenn already accompanies them there, every evening when his show airs! Only Jon and Stephen actually MEAN to be funny - thats the scary thing abt Beck..."... Beck's political views have often been the subject of jibes from fellow broadcasters including Jon Stewart..." well deserved jibes - the man is a complete idiot, not to mention the fact that he's stark raving mad as well! There's another funny, Glenn, who says "If you want to change the mainstream media, get out of New York". I have a question, why'd you stay in NY when you were on Fox? Oh, thats right Glenn, you ARE the Lamestream media! :)

So, we really dont even know how old Mr Beck is...Has he released his birth certificate? If he had, then we would know exactly how old he is and since we DONT KNOW how old he is, I conclude that Mr Beck DEFINITELY has something to hide. And, if he has SOMETHING to HIDE, he MUST not even be a citizen of the US! OH...MY..GOD - since Beck ISNT EVEN a CITIZEN, oh, I just cannot believe it! But, its true, backed up by my factual line of reasoning above! The HORROR....!!!

Someone should proofread the copy before you put it on the web. In the 2nd paragraph you have Beck's age at 37, then 3 sentences later you claim his age is 38. Also, the beginning of the 3rd paragraph does not read well. Someone should have edited it to read: "In addition to his ratio and talk shows" instead of what is written.Do a better job next time...grammar and consistency is not rocket science.

"Ratio and talk shows"? I'm sure ratio passed through spell check, but not a quick proof read.

I agree with farina2k2 about the appalling grammar and context. It's actually rather astounding that news of such execrable condition was published. First he's thirty-seven, then he is thirty-eight. The entire news article is completely ill-founded and baseless. This validates yet another reason to disregard basically everything said or written about anything or anyone.

I agree Maryska, that's the first thing i noticed when i started reading this...you'd think back in grammar school they'd teach you to proofread everything you read.

I could go on TV, Radio and find fault with everything from the founding of this country to the President and make a very good living until my sponsors caught on and dumped Me. All the while finding no good with anything and wondering why Me! Glenn Beck should get a copy of "Seven Days In May" and watch it very close. Americans ARE spoiled and a little dumb but they sure as hell got His number! Old Uncle Pat.

Glenn (why two "n's") Beck is just another huckster using religion as his pry bar to get money form people. He is or claims he is a dispentionalist which is a traitor to both Christainity and America. Read Grace Halsell's "Journey to Jerusalem" and "Politics and Prophecy" to learn why Beck and his newest bes friend Hagee are very dangerous to America and useful idiots to the zionists.

There's been many pro-communist, pro Fidel Castro, pro Hugo Chavez idiotic statements made by Hollywood celebrities like Sean Penn, Kevin Spacey, Danny Glover and so on. How come Stewart and Colbert make no mention of them? It just tells you what side they're on, and it's not in the best interests of the nation.

"jbone", you're either completely naive or want to see the country turned upside down. Or is the term "fundamentally transformed" as stated by your messiah more to your liking? And remember all those in the media fawning over Obama when he was elected, referring to his "messianic" qualities, etc., etc.?? Or Chris Matthews with his "tingle up his leg" for Obama? And that's not nutty??

Glad to see these guys have a proof reader. Find it Strange that someone who was born February 10,1964 is 37 oh but, wait towards the end of this article he is 38. Not to mention no where does Beck say he is targeting Jon Stewart. Contactmusic.com your writer here is just a "Dumbass!"
