Was Glenn Beck not on his own show Friday because of the 'poison' comment he made on Thursday?
Edited on Sat Aug-08-09 11:04 PM by Tx4obama
Has anyone heard why Glenn Beck was not on his show on FoxNews on Friday? (there was a fill-in guy instead of Beck)
Was it because of the 'poison' comment he made on Thursday?
Was it because he is somewhere getting a mental evaluation?
Was it because he is undergoing a Secret Service interrogation?
Anyone know? :)

We do not need to sink to that level

4. So which level should we sink to?
Watching the only chance we have at even a partially decent health care system in this country vanish because some goddamn dry drunk Mormon lunatic takes millions of dollars from corporations and incites his idiot followers into starting the next civil war?

Fuck that. If I thought BecKKK would take himself out, I'd hand him the gun with a bullet in the chamber.

6. I hate these people but I would never hope for their deaths...
If I did, I would be no better than them. I am a much better person than they will ever be.

10. One of these BecKKK lovers shot a doctor in his church a few weeks back
How many more doctors would these lunatics kill if they supported the "Obama Librul Commie Kenyan Nazi Killin Babies and Old People" health care plan?

Better BecKKK and/or these mindless freeps than innocent people trying to do their jobs.

33. Yeah! Damn that knee-jerk human decency and compassion!
:silly:

Not wanting Glen Beck to die by his own hand isn't quite the same as defending him. Just sayin'

3. I wish sincerely that an answer to your questions
is "All of the above."

But that would be too justified to be true.

13. If people didn't watch it and didn't report, you would never know about him, would you?
Edited on Sat Aug-08-09 11:37 PM by dem629
You would never have any idea what the other side was up to. You'd be as ignorant as Beck's followers.

What's with this McCarthyistic attitude, demanding to know why people are watching or listening or reading certain things?

26. That's ridiculous. RW newsmedia is a legitamite agenda-setter in America,
for better or worse.

Fox News is the most-watched cable "news" network on TV, and it is merely the television arm of News Corp., which exerts its influence every day across America in print and online as well.

It simply isn't possible that millions of right-wingers get "information" pumped into their homes 24/7 and we not be aware of its content as well. There's nothing McCarthyistic about it - it is, after all, the national media.

15. Actually....
Edited on Sat Aug-08-09 11:45 PM by Tx4obama
I don't watch Glenn Beck (except for the outrageous vids here on DU).
My remote's fav button is programmed with CNN, HLN, FoxNews, C-Span, and MSNBC (the numbers here in Houston are in that order).
So, when I was making my way back to MSNBC I just noticed that Beck was not there.

p.s. I must admit though that I do sometimes watch Shepard Smith on Fox on the days that I have caught MSNBC's Hardball in the early time-slot and don't want to rewatch it a second time. I truly wish MSNBC didn't show as many repeated shows as they do ;)

17. My guess: vacation day, or starting a long vacation.
It's summer, and so many of these hosts are taking time off, understandably.

That said, maybe Beck's wife left the house yesterday morning without letting him out of his straight-jacket.

28. I clicked the link
and saw a reference to someone's "ordeal" at a townhall.

I tracked down that person's posts ... find out she is Susan Price (bareford101) protesting against public health care, and sure enough: "It was on the news this morning that Doggett would be having another Town Hall meeting today at the Veterans Affairs Center. Since my husband has used that Center ..."

Her family's happy to use tax payer funded health care, but it's the work of satan if others get that same benefit.

(Her "ordeal" turned out to be that she was asked to leave.)

25. Ann Coulter once said someone should poison the creme brulee
of one of the more liberal (sane) SC justices---I forget which one.

RW media mouths often suggest killing elected officials and judges.

34. That sort of joke is not funny
imagine the furor that would have been generated if someone had made a similar joke about the Speaker of the House when the Republicans controlled both chambers of the Legislature and the Executive branch (not to mention the partisan inroads they were making into the Judicial branch).

39. Probaby. But CryBaby via Twitter claims that he was having an hours long soulful
conversation with his wife at a park. :puke:

I think your theory is more plausible. Ailes probably told him to take the day off and chill out.
