The end of a dark chapter in American media

Home Disclaimer Contents For Glenn Beck Share This URL
Glenn Beck is no longer doing live programming on Fox, so it is worth taking this opportunity to review some of the reasons why Beck became a lightning rod for criticism. Beginning with an interview with Eric Boehlert, Senior Fellow at the liberal media watchdogs, Media Matters for America, on The Ed Show from June 30th (the date of Beck's last show), to a list of links to Media Matters' coverage of Beck's "biggest" segments and statements and finishing with a video clip of rival and progressive Keith Olbermann sending Beck off with a wish of good luck.

Via MSNBC, Rev. Sharpton was sitting in for Ed Schultz:

The following list of topics are linked to the coverage that Media Matters for America gave on Beck as his last episode on Fox. Beck effectively made Media Matters the boogie-man and progressive bad guys with his manipulative propaganda. He is very good at rendering his critics impotent in the eyes of his adoring followers, but if anyone reading the information on the Media Matters site can find where they have any facts about Mr. Beck wrong, then leave a comment to that effect below. They have over 200 webpages of links to coverage of Mr. Beck, many of them just clips of Beck saying something stupid.

Beck dressed as a Founding Father
anti-progressive propagandist

On his show on Current TV, Keith Olbermann, perhaps sympathetic to Mr. Beck for having lost his show, explained his description of Mr. Beck as "Lonesome Rhodes" and wished Beck "good luck."
