A Colossal Head: Glenn Beck’s Salt Lake City Show

Via Media Matters. Glenn Beck’s “Man In The Moon” show July 6 at the USANA Amphitheater. I have no words.

      I think some of those are actual Glenn Beck conspiracy theories.

    What and where is the USANA Amphitheater?

      Google knows all:

      The USANA Amphitheatre is a 20,000-seat outdoor amphitheater, located in West Valley City, Utah. The Amphitheater is named after USANA Health Sciences, a manufacturer of nutritional supplements. It offers a view of the Wasatch Mountains.

      Address: 5150 S 6055 W, West Valley City, UT 84128

      I’ve only been there once, for a Chicago concert.

    Thanks Richard. Guess I could have Googled it myself. (embarrassment emoticon).

    Obviously, the Media Matters video was taken out of context, but I have to wonder if the audience was at a loss for words also.

    Is Glenn Beck TRYING to make Mormons look bad? I think that’s a perfectly good question. I think the Church should make some strong statements here.

      The Media Matters report says the Glenn Beck fans were pretty much dumbfounded. There was no applause at the end, they just left.

        Being human for as long as I have, I know it’s never hard to see things the way you want to see them, but I wouldn’t have a hard time believing that the Utahn’s left the theater in disbelief.

        I seem to remember that Sean Hannity wasn’t invited back to the “Stadium of Fire” one year, because of his confrontational stance.

        Personally, I don’t mind confrontation, if it’s based on fact. I’m not saying I always have those, but I sure try.

          I didn’t see the show myself, but according to the MM account it was deliberately non-confrontational and even apolitical. Beck is trying to sell himself now as the new Walt Disney, if you can believe that. Is projecting yourself on a giant gas-filled balloon the right approach for someone who claims not to be an egomaniac?

          I can understand why his tea-party fans are confused.

            According to the MM account? Are you kidding me? That is like someone saying “According to Glenn Beck’s account.”

          Well, if Glenn beck is anything, he’s a gas giant. :) We used to work with a guy who farted a lot and got the name: Jupiter.

          I once had to drive my boss’s car somewhere to get something and the radio was set to Glenn Beck. He was saying everything he could to to get out of admitting he listened.

          I loved my Boss, because he would let me argue with him about politics in front of the other employees!

    Media Matters is a fucking disgrace. They are Glenn Beck.

    Let’s see:

    Glenn Beck…
    Media Maters…

    Glenn Beck…

    Where should I go to get the truth? I’m so perplexed!
