I endorse this message

My friends at the Swashzone are working to pull the plug on Glenn Beck. Check out the plan and an appearance by one of the victims of the Arizona assassination attempt on Gabrielle Giffords in the comments. Meanwhile, our own Captain Fogg adds to the conversation in his own superbly eloquent style.

To be clear, I don't think Glenn Beck has to shut up entirely. He's entitled to his opinions and can gather his flock of deluded souls as he wishes in a free society. However, he shouldn't be given a national platform on television to promote outright lies that foster psychopathic paranoia and I won't support any business that underwrites him, as is my right. Let him ply his insane conspiracy theories on his own site and not under the imprimatur of an alleged "news" station.

Its still a relatively free country..go ahead an protest to Beck's advertisers if you think that will help get him off the air.

Have you considered the Beck faithful will respond in kind to the coordinated effort you support?

The controversy may just increase his ratings

If the guy is half as crazy as you r side claims he'll self destruct soon enough.

I don't have a dog in this fight, but the laws of unintended consequences do occasionally apply.

Read the letter and note the threats to citizens and public officials, thwarted terrorist attempts, gunshot injuries, and deaths attributable to Beck's broadcasts. When toxic TV threatens public safety, it is time to pull the plug.
