"rich and talented" BecKKK on Time'zine's cover. Scab/Mika schizo on him & CARTER
SCABBROUGH and Mika Mouse swung from one end of themselves to the other, opening by attacking President CARTER for identifying the "You LIE" roots in racism (cut too close to the bone, SCABS?!1). But then spinning on a dime, they presented somebody from Time with the current cover, showcasing BecKKK. Their guest appeared to contradict everything they said about the President and included BecKKK in the racist loop as well.

The Google search on "Time Magazine Glenn Beck" didn't result in the new cover, but apparently Time has been on BecKKK's case for quite awhile. Btw, the full article from the new issue is at the first link.


GOP watch: Profiling Beck

Posted: Thursday, September 17, 2009
The latest issue of Time magazine looks at Glenn Beck. He is the hottest thing in the political-rant racket, left or right. A gifted entrepreneur of angst in a white-hot market. A man with his ear uniquely tuned to the precise frequency at which anger, suspicion and the fear that no one's listening all converge.

More: His fears are many which is lucky for him, because Beck is responsible for filling multiple hours each day on radio and TV and webcast, plus hundreds of pages each year in his books, his online magazine and his newsletter. What's this rich and talented man afraid of? He is afraid of one-world government, which will turn once proud America into another France. He is afraid that Obama has a deep-seated hatred for white people which doesn't mean, he hastens to add, that he actually thinks Obama doesn't like white people." He is afraid that both Democrats and Republicans in Washington are deeply corrupt and that their corruption is spreading like a plague. He used to be afraid that hypocritical Republicans in the Bush Administration were killing capitalism and gutting liberty, but now he is afraid that all-too-sincere leftists in the Obama Administration are plotting the same. On a slow news day, Beck fears that the Rockefeller family installed communist and fascist symbols in the public artwork of Rockefeller Center. One of his Fox News Channel colleagues, Shepard Smith, has jokingly called Beck's studio the fear chamber. Beck countered that he preferred doom room.,8599,192434...

1. These hate monger profilers always get it wrong
One has to wonder if it is deliberate or simply laziness.

The fact is that men like Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh are SELECTED by powerful, political players and business elite to incite hatred, deliver regular doses of unadulterated propaganda and provide a never ending cascade of distraction. Glenn Beck is no more talented than a street whore that works her way into polite society by choosing wisely in regard to which man to fellate.

The successful hatemongers of today are nothing new. These folks have had their place since recorded history began. Their role is simply to perpetuate and defend an elite, wealthy class in society. They are well paid servants and delivery boys. It takes no great talent to sell one's soul.

2. Actually, the cover pic is probably the only good thing. The article is puffy
Just a recitation of BecKKK's financial statistics, success, $23 million last year. Not really a profile.

A nugget: "He started in radio at age 13, inspired by a recording of golden-age broadcasts given to him by his mother who later committed suicide, leaving the young Beck deeply traumatized." She probably realized what she had created.

And his bubble is to get bigger: Books targetting every age group, proceeding from the three #1 best sellers.
