The classes are available to anyone who signs up for Beck’s “Extreme Insider” website package, which costs $6.26 per month.

Beck is at risk for a class action lawsuit

these people will easily be able to prove they have been recieve anything close to $6.26 in value.

For him it is.

PS I was being sardonic about it. As he does. Just to be clear.

In his case , yes, as he does. Other times, no, very seriously. It's kind of like Music. . Everyone is a Musician or a Producer . Some really are .

And they often censor, so removing all the facts takes time.

PS His show, especially radio, is shown from start to finish live. He has his on "Broadcast station " there is a little clock at the bottom or the High quality picture.

Everything is shown including the breaks for Goldline and Carbonite commercials.

Are you saying he censors that?

Of course he does. I know people who have had their content removed, not because of misconduct but because it completely contradicted Beck's revisionist history. He leaves those that respond completely emotionally without sources, etc. But he will often remove content that his audience isn't equipped to discuss.

He treats his radio show and tv show just like he does his forum. He will purposefully screen those that he would to truly engage in debate with and let those that either praise him or sound like quacks right through. They all do this; Hannity, Ingrahm, Rush. Why do you think they are so scared of the Fairness Doctrine?

An aquaintance of mine was a big fan of Beck, not worshiper like you but a big fan nonetheless. This person happens to also be a minister. He was livid when Beck made his "social justice" comment, and then proceeded to do a whole show dedicated to the topic. So this huge fan and person who studied theology most of his life tried calling his radio and TV show for days and was denied because Beck wouldn't have been able to debate the man. He no longer listens to Beck and says there were other ministers that tried to call in and were denied as well.

So yes he censors, it's the only way shows like this work.

He doesn't run the forums. Doesn't even read them. They are no different than here, except for a couple of things .

He doesn't debate people? Before i go any further, you essentially are saying you watch, listen, or are a member of his forum.

How often do you watch the show , listen to the show, or post on his websites forums?

Why would HE be afraid of the Fairness Docterine.? He can broadcast from anywhere, at any time . It would take a Global effort to keep him from broadcasting . He doesn't need the studio. He doesn't like the idea of the fairness Docterine. If people wanted to watch Rosie, and they did in great numbers, would any one complain? No

Why does the far left need it? Put something on that peple want to watch , and if they like it, they will. Wanda what's her name is just not funny, nor entertaining to many people. If she was they would watch her.

How often do you watch the show , listen to the show, or post on his websites forums?

Then I will anwser the rest, but one thing on EVERY radio, or tv show. If the host is talking about subject A , and someone wants to talk about subject Z generally, they will not take the call at that time. 2 different subjects. Larry King does it. Or did it. Al Franken did it.


PS I don't worship ANY Person
