WSJ reported GBTV was bringing in close to $40,000,000 in subscription fees. I like to watch both extremes of opinion but I'm not paying $9.99 a month to see him.

Televangelism and other freak shows sell out in Dallas. Is this news? What is your point, Marlin? We know there are crazy people down there and Glenn feeds their mythology with Jimmy Swaggert tears and rock and roll.

and the point? The Hunger Games sold out, Sexy Liberals concerts are sold out http://www.sexyliberal.com/

Or are you comparing it to the Romney event in the football stadium where they could only get 200 people out of 60,000?

LOL!

I sometimes wonder if the popularity of the likes of Glen Beck among Southerners might be attributed to inbreeding. Just a fleeting thought...

(btw, "attact?" New word coinage, or typo. Attract + attack ='s attact?)

The movie Idiocracy hits a little too close to home, to the Glenn Beck republican home that is:

Without a natural predator, reverse natural selection takes place: This would be funny if not so true.

Should public radio program in the public interest?

NPR is supposed to be our national public radio, but they're barely covering climate issues that are in the public's interest.

Only one month ago, a national New York Times/CBS News poll found that half of all Americans think that global warming is already having a serious impact. Sixty percent of those surveyed even said that protecting our environment should be a priority “even at the risk of curbing economic growth.”
