You know, I am not a huge fan of Beck and do think he can be a bit on the paranoid side, but, if you watch him and actually follow what he is saying, most of his opinions are based in truth and logic. He has an entertainers way of presenting things, but his historical research is unparalleled by the opinion shows. That's why you rarely see critics find fault with his research. They have to go after his mannerisms or the times he misspeaks.

Look at the recent thing where Huffington contorted something he said. He made her look like an imbecile by just playing his full statement so it made sense in context.

You may not agree with some of his conclusions or his presentation style, but it is hard to call him crazy as he is well read and does use logic to come to his conclusions. Crazy people don't do this at all. You can't follow their thought process.

Unless you're crazy yourself! Then anyone could follow Beck's strange Bishop Sheen on LSD act

Many Liberals love Jon . I would say most of them learn about politics from his show on Comedy Central .

I know he's not loony bin insane lol. And yes, sometimes he makes very good points...I just don't like his borderline conspiracy theory style of presenting things.

Not an entirely true statement...but of course, probably not entirely false.

Do you think that's any better though than Conservatives learning about politics only from Beck or Limbaugh...who just present political opinions and (many times) political spin?

Although, he does go out of his way to bash the "birthers" and 9/11 conspiracy nutjobs...
