Glenn Beck is Still Out of Control

    Glenn Beck thinks he can spew his hateful rhetoric, take a few days of heat, and then dance away from accountability for what he's done.

    Last week, we brought your attention to Glenn Beck's comparison of the young, innocent victims of the Norway mass murders to "Hitler youth" and his attempt to escape responsibility for that outrageous claim -- and you responded en masse with more than 10,000 petition signatures asking radio stations to drop Beck for his indefensibly hateful statements.

    One radio station informed us that it had already made the decision to cancel Beck's show, which is a reflection that Beck's vitriol is bad for business and a testament to how grassroots power can help restore responsibility to our public airwaves.

    But we need to keep up the pressure on other radio station managers across the country, so they won't be able to defend providing a platform for such hateful and profoundly disturbing intolerance for very much longer.

    Donate now. Help Media Matters keep the pressure on radio stations to stop supporting someone who callously compares innocent victims of gun violence to "Hitler youth."

    Thousands of people like you have signed a letter urging station managers to reconsider promoting Beck's out-of-control rants. And thanks to your help, cracks are already appearing -- yet another radio station has come to the conclusion that Beck's vitriol is bad for business.

    With your immediate donation, we'll keep the pressure on through direct negotiations with station managers, online advertising zeroing in on stations that refuse to hold Beck accountable, and work with allied organizations to keep building the pressure higher and higher.

    As we learned in the successful campaign to end Beck's reign on Fox News, an effort like this takes constant grassroots pressure over a sustained period of time.

    Donate now to help Media Matters urge radio stations across the nation to drop Beck's hate-spewing rhetoric from their programming.

    I know we can produce tangible consequences for Beck. But it's going to take time. And it's going to require people like you to make a personal decision that you won't let Glenn Beck dance away from the consequences of his irresponsible and indecent vitriol.

    Please stand with us,

    Matt Butler
    President and CEO
    Media Matters for America

    Beck should be banned, Let's instead fill the radio waves with crap like the "Howard Stern show", and "Love line". I love turning on the radio and listening to the local DJ on the "Men's room" touting that fresh and sassy greeting "Hola Bitchola". It's so fresh and tolerable, to hear them spout out a disgusted "G*d-D@%m" whenever they read a lewd sexually explicit text from a listener over the airwaves.

    "Donate now to Media Matters"

    Need I say more. Talk about a fring BS site. They get paid to do nothing but attack Beck.

    You guys are hysterical.

    My stomach hurts...

    And you know in the midst of the BS last week an important point was missed. I do not like the idea of any Political party have "youth camps", must I post the history of "Youth Camps" in Europe for you all?

    Given that Media Matters is a tax-free nonprofit, the government is effectively supporting its efforts to disrupt the commercial enterprises of a taxpaying business. The government is also effectively supporting its partisan activities that the nonprofit was ostensibly created to monitor in the first place, a problem also at right-wing nonprofits.
    Taxpayers have effectively been supporting Media Matters in its campaign to get advertisers to "Drop Fox,"--words billboarded on its website along with "NewsCorpwatch" that link viewers to form letters to send to advertisers to get them to stop advertising on the network.
    The U.S. government is also effectively supporting the website's attacks on News Corp's attempt to buy Great Britain's BSkyB, a satellite broadcaster. And taxpayers are effectively supporting the nonprofit's demands to Congress to investigate News Corp. and its head, Rupert Murdoch.
    Also, the U.S. government now effectively supports the nonprofit's purchase of a full-page ad in the International Herald Tribune urging James Murdoch to use his "power" to "usher in a new era for News Corp."
    And Brock is reportedly working behind the scenes to get disgruntled ex-employees to file suit against FOX News. He has also reportedly hired a political activist to pressure investors to divest their holdings in News Corp., including Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal Alsaud.
    The nonprofit failed to report all of these activities to the IRS on its tax returns. While nonprofits often declare free speech rights when they push the code, as Media Matters likely will here, former IRS officials and tax lawyers say speech is one thing--urging action is another. Such activities are nowhere to be found within the scope of U.S. tax law covering nonprofits.

    Beck is an intellectual pygmy!

    Without the fanatical mental dwarfs that listen to his projected self hate he wouldn't get a more worthwhile job like cleaning toilet bowls.

    He could however lick them clean with a mouth like that.
