The problem isn't with people like Glen Beck, the problem is with people confuse what Glen Beck does with journalism.

He's an entertainer and commentator, not a journalist.

Sova - please name 5 real journalists.

Not teleprompter readers or people propped up by political agenda; but people that find a real story and report on it without bias.

everybody has some kind of bias, if you don't you're not breathing. I just don't respect most of Glen Beck's "reporting" practices. Read the list of things at the link I provided. He also lies about representing himself as a conservative talk show host wherever he goes :

Thats coming out of a guy that ESPN made famous, Olbermann? My 17 yo nephew has more political knowledge than that guy. He is just throwing darts at his competition. Maybe he should buy Air America.:tonka: :tonka:

so Olbermann doesn't have the ability to read a statement by Bill O'Reilly and research past statements and find one that contradicts himself?

You say that, but you should hear him speak on his special comments, i'm sure your 17 year old nephew is awesome.

I think everyone of those journalists contradict themselves at some point.

Found out something interesting this AM. Ever hear of Blackwater? I used to work for the guy that started it right here in MI. I remember him telling us about it in a meeting once and inviting us there. Look it up on youtube. I never thought that it would get that big!

As JohnnyJ said, name 5 real journalists. You could probably find them contradicting themselves too.

If you haven't contradicted yourself at least once in your life, you aren't breathing.
