Hardball:Fox suffers from Beck backlash

Newt Gingrich was pushing Death Panels until this month. Glenn Beck HATED the American Health Care System until this month.

    Yeah! Get them where it hurts. Thank you Radio Shack and the others who are FINALLY getting embarrassed. Now what about Limbaugh, Hannity and all the clones?

    Victory over an admitted clown! We’re getting somewhere. Well, he is still on TV and radio, and is in the news all day. You are making his world.

    Against free speech Larry? Preparing for your jackboot? What size are you?

      Talking about personally killing Michael Moore with great relish isn’t free speech, but don’t worry, Murdock has enough free speech/money to keep the Beckster on for as long as he desires; hell, he gave Michael Moore a successful television show until he ruffled one to many hairs on the heads of the corporate powerful, (program TERMINATED). Beck will NEVER do that to real power, so he’s safe.

      Size 16, but no free speech unless I literally go into the street by myself with a sign.

    I don’t see anything meeting the definition of censorship when a sponsor withdraws its support from an admitted entertainer, who coincedently uses lies and vitriol to promote policies that would only make the sponsors affairs suffer. That’s simply good business.

    Unbridled, unapologetic hypocrisy is always on the table for people like Gingrich and Beck. And we wonder why Americans can’t think sometimes:

    I DON’T WANT ANY DAMN HEALTH CARE! I’M AN AMERICAN!

    Whole Foods Market CEO John Mackey is finding out HIS business may suffer because HE stepped in it, (the health care debate that is). Here is one of his brilliant ideas:

    He [Mackey] suggested that tax forms be revised to “make it easier for individuals to make a voluntary, tax-deductible donation to help the millions of people who have no insurance.”

    Brother can you spare a dime health care, huh? How much dignity will Mr. Mackey endow me with today? On the other hand, keep it!

    I almost wish I shopped at Whole Foods so I could stop, like this man who nails it:

    “While Mackey is worried about health care and stimulus spending, he doesn’t seem too worried about expensive wars and tax breaks for the wealthy and big businesses such as his own that contribute to the deficit,” said Lent.

      Mackey’s plan is just like Obama’s powered by OPM!

      Other people’s money. At least he has a plan and offers it to his employees as their choice, with his money, and the money garnished by the efforts of his employees and their participation in a successful enterprise. WTF does Obama have, or has ever done that could compare to this standing reality of irrevocable fact?

    The notion of ‘cash-flow’ suggests any money is ours only for as long as it takes us to pass it on. But since Ronnie made greed an American value, we see an accumulation of the nations wealth (or at least money) in the hands of the greediest few.

    It shouldn’t be overlooked: It pretty much all funnels through the MIC to wherever else it might go. Maybe even two or three times, and among those who profit from this stream are some of the greediest and most murderous.

    Were it not for our attachment to wars, there’d be a lot more money for health care and a whole lot fewer war injured – requiring health and mental health services.

    Greed existed before Ronny dear.

    MIC
    INSURANCE
    PHARMA
    ILLICIT DRUGS

    all bed fellows.

    The idiots that pretend to representation? Whores waiting on a tip from dohnut.

    Cav,

    I couldn’t have said it better myself.

    I would only add that ‘Ronnie’ refers to an American president named Ronald Reagan who parlayed his unremarkable acting career into a stint red-baiting for the Screen Actors’ Guild before further refining his PR skills as an actor/spokesperson for GE before then ‘acting’ into a ‘palinesque’ governorship of California (paving the way for the Terminator) then carving himself into the hearts and minds of redneck America to become president of the US only to become himself a criminal (Iran-Contra), thoroughly embarrassing the country in the process, and finally achieving the undisputed ‘second most economically destructive president in history.’

    Ooops, what I meant to say is, ‘Ronnie’ was a Republican.

  9. #11 by InsaneClownPosse on August 15, 2009 - 7:52 pm

    ’second most economically destructive president in history.’

    After who, Obama?

    The Beauty is Ronnie was first a Democrat. proving up the Dialectic, oh so well. Viva la Difference!!

  10. #12 by cav on August 16, 2009 - 7:23 am

    First he was a Democrat, now he’s an angel.

    How are we to account for those missing 18 1/2 minutes?

    I don’t know if Glenn Dreck has health insurance, but he makes $18 million a year so no worries– for him!
