    Watching the news industry develop has been interesting... of course there was also the non story the other day of how the leftwing netroots readership had been declining significantly.

    Glenn Beck About to Become a $100 Million Man while Keith Olbermann Struggles to Find New Job

    Does this mean there's a market for Beck's style and personality, and not for Olberman's sarcastic flatulence?

    The movers and shakers in the republican party have been pundits for a long time. Democrats are less interested in fawning over celebrities and more interested in intelligent conversation and personal conviction. Republicans just play to the lowest common denominator.

    I'm confused. The body of your post says it's about the news industry. But the title says it's about Glenn Beck and Keith Olbermann.

    Thanks for the laugh first thing in the morning, Hottie. The links on here to endorsements from various pompous celebrities are but one example of Hollywood's worship of Obama. George Tekai, who the hell cares what he thinks? Sickening left leaning movies and tv shows have been forced on people for years. We could go on and on about this for almost as many years as Hollywood has been churning out left wing propaganda disguised as entertainment. This is why I watch very little tv. The sitcoms are unbelievably stupid and predictable, ditto most movies, and don't get me started on reality shows. Apart from Mythbusters or How It's Made, most tv is a big waste of time. And yes, I know Fox produces a lot of this crap for money, and that annoys me just as much as it annoys you.

    Mainstream and liberal media have been in decline while those that have been thriving are firms like Fox News and other pundits. I'm not sure it's a question of market sizes increasing or decreasing though... I suspect it's just because there's been a largely underserviced market.

    From today though as just one example - Al Gore's Current TV is now on sale because it's been struggling.

    And in Canadian news....Riddler wouldn't know because he's probably not from Canada. Who cares this much about Rightwingers sucking the money from ignorant people while another man struggles to find a job? Who is this pinpioint focused on American politics/economics when they are supposedly not even from this country?

    Germany is big shit right now, do you see me up their ass about their shit?

    You're obnoxious. The relevance of what you say is normally zilch and just another means of fist-pumping for a party that HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU.

    Most of Riddler's topics et al are easy to understand once you understand his religion.

    Once again, you get it wrong. My interest in economics stems from the basic fact that people respond to incentives. And the irony is that markets have done more to improve the condition of the poor - and also minorities than governments ever have. You like to think that you're a moderate and yet almost consistently you've shown how ignorant you are from basic issues in finance, to things like minimum wage where you believed and probably still do despite the evidence that there's some massive race to the bottom.

    That said I'm flattered you took the time to try to look up for my sake.

    Well, I don't like Glenn Beck so this isn't fantastic news...but the Olbermann bit is kind of funny.

    That's all you could think of, is it? If I were to respond in kind, I'd say "your mother".

    Yes, it's where I found Blake's 7, Are You Being Served, Keeping Up Appearances, and As Time Goes By. But only on weekends when I'm home.

    Glenn Beck Claims He Will 'Stand With GLAAD' Against Russia's 'Hetero-Fascism'

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/01/02/glenn-beck-russia_n_4531744.html

    “I said on the air this week, I will stand with GLAAD," continued Beck. "I will stand with anybody who will stand up and say that’s crazy. That’s dangerous. That’s hetero-fascism. That’s what that is. And we’re talking about Duck Dynasty. Really? Really?”

    So he supports homophobia in the U.S. but stands against it in Russia??? It sounds like Beck doesn't give a shit about gays, but is using us for political talking points. What a hero! I know you're not supposed to look a gift horse in the mouth, but this guy is a pig. I can see why Riddler likes him so much!

    "So he supports homophobia"

    He does?

    Beck's a great guy. Enjoy him immensely

    You seem to revel in that label "low information voter" that the media likes to talk about so much. icon_wink.gif
