@panzade,
You can start with these links:

http://www.politicususa.com/en/Glenn-Beck-The-View

http://mediamatters.org/research/200912210015

http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2009/jul/29/glenn-beck/glenn-beck-claims-science-czar-john-holdren-propos/

http://www.newshounds.us/2009/11/25/fact_checking_glenn_beck_san_francisco_rotc_and_haditha.php

http://factcheck.org/archives/search-results/?cx=006313184908531579811%3Ahm8n5-dxba0&cof=FORID%3A10%3BNB%3A1&ie=UTF-8&q=glenn+beck&sa=Search#887

And if that isn't enough, you can go back a couple pages and hear it in his own words out of his own mouth that he's a fake and a liar.

thanks BN

I like this quote:

Quote:
And conservative commentator David Frum who calls Beck's rise, "a product of the collapse of conservatism as an organized political force, and the rise of conservatism as an alienated cultural sensibility."

@Butrflynet,

I looked at the first link. The train conductor or whatever told Beck that the seats were reserved for Whoopi Goldberg and Barbara Walters, and that he couldn't sit there. Now they say that they had not requested that seats be reserved. Apparently both are telling the truth from their own point of view. In the interview on "The View," Goldberg and Walters essentially wouldn't let him speak. Doesn't seem like a lie to me, just an accusation followed by telling Beck to shut up every time he tried to give his side.

That is the liberal definition of fairness; i.e., deviating from fairness.

Beck made a big issue out of a program that was proposed by Obama when he was a senator. Beck said it would, at tremendous cost, create a domestic police force, which would duplicate things the FBI and other law-enforcement agencies do. He made it out to be similar to the former E. German Stasi.

In reality, Obama's proposal involved giving more money to State and Americorp to further volunteerism. No law-enforcement was involved.

This is typical to the type of false stuff Beck broadcasts.
