Beck takes his show in the direction of educating people. Of course the left doesn’t like it.
Video is private? What idiot would upload a video that is picked up by the Washington Times and then set it to private?
ROGER AILES: And we have a dialogue everyday with them
BARBARA WALTERS: Aw shucks it was more fun the other way around
AILES: Well Ill pick a fight if you want. Id be happy to get into one, but I think there will be others. We have differences, but
ARIANNA HUFFINGTON: But Roger, its not the question of picking a fight. Arent you concerned about the language that Glenn Beck is using?which is, after all , inciting the American people. Theres a lot of suffering out there, as you know, and when he talks about people being slaughtered, about who is going to be next in the killing spree
AILES: Well, hes talking about Hitler and Stalin slaughtering people, so I think he was probably accurate
HUFFINGTON: No, he was talking about this administration.
AILES: also I think he speaks English. I dont know but I mean, I dont misinterpret any of his words. He did say one unfortunate thing which he apologized for, but that happens in live television, so I dont think its a I think if we start going around as the word police, in this business, it will be a
HUFFINGTON: Its not about the word police. Its about something deeper. Its about the fact that theres a tradition that historian Richard Hofstadtersaid in American politics of the paranoid style, and the paranoid style is dangerous when there is real pain out there with
AILES: I agree with you. I read something on your blog that said I look like J. Edgar Hoover, I had a face like a fist, and I was essentially a malignant tumor, and then it got nasty after that.
HUFFINGTON: Well, that was never by anybody that we approved
AILES: Then, it really went nasty, and I thought, gee, maybe Arianna ought to cut this out.
Roger Ailes was great on this program. Didn’t back down one wit while surrounded by libs, and even went on the attack against them. Way to go Roger Ailes, my hero! He gave more than he got.
It’s up now. That was weird.
I’ll stop hyperventilating now...
She is lying. I've heard Beck specifically state otherwise.
Great video, but listening to Arianna Huffington made my IQ go down.
No wonder her husband went gay.
Interpreter: We're all stupid rednecks who follow racist Beck unlike intelligent, rich and elitist Arianna. /s
Don't you just love having elitist explain things to us?!
I love the red phone. It has yet to ring. lol!
Hahaha, doubt it ever will
(is FR running very slow?)
Beck is the BIGGEST threat to communism in this country to date and the second most popular personality on American TV . Look out HARPO the big dog is movin’ in . If Beck were on at a later time spot he would surpass thunder thighs over night . Beck is: 0bama’s TRANSPARENCY CZAR !!!
So I understand that in order to criticize and state a factual opinion you have to a liberal. from this day forward all Freeopers are now conservativeliberals. See now we are endorsed to be able to criticize. see we now have liberals as part of our title. we even call ourselves conservativeprogressive, or conservativepopulists, there we got the bases covered.
