He opened today's show (yes, I'm watching it) saying that he was missing the "C" and in a smarmy, sarcastic, condescending tone says "thank you, liberal bloggers, for teaching us that you can't spell "oligarchy" without "C for Czars!"

He definitely believes what he says. Fucking bonkers is right.

Based on the content of the show, I think making a fool of himself over a spelling error is not high on his list of worries.

The latest Beck idiocy:

<object><param></param><param></param><param></param><param></param><param></param><param></param><param></param></object>

He really is a clown. A porkchop-faced, self-righteous, delusional clown.

Ha! You'd better just quit paying attention to Beck because updating this thread with his latest idiocy is going to be a regular task.

FOX is the perfect fit for him- he's paranoid, ignorant and racist, and working on a network that, near as I can tell, has absolutely no standards. Every clip I see is more of the same- thinly veiled "the whole world is going to hell now that we have a black communist/socialist/fascist president" racism. I find it hard to believe he's allowed to run rampant with his paranoid BS. I wonder how many of the town hall/birther/tea party folks watch his show religiously.

What was he like on CNN? I don't remember hearing controversy about him there.

He was a little more controlled, but you could see the idiot inside really squirming to get out. I just watched a handful of youtube clips and it's astonishing that this man has a career in journalism. There's certainly no objectivity in anything he says, and that's probably what lead to his departure from CNN, who at least try for some kind of evenhanded approach. Fox News is the perfect spot for Beck, you're right. If you can command an audience, in both senses, then you too can have a show on Fox News.
