The problem with viewers of faux in general and Beck in particular, is that after watching hours of that a day, they, even those who should know better, are completely brainwashed. TV, and faux especially, reduces any topic down to a ten-second sound byte. No serious political issue can be presented in a factual, honest manner in a ten-second sound byte. Screaming 'drill baby drill' excites the sheeple (my word for anyone who believes either religious or faux bullshit) in a way that a thoughtful, factual discussion of global climate change does not.
And since the huge corporations do everything in their power to discredit climate change (just an example as a topic) they spend truckloads of money using focus groups and marketing strategists to figure out the best way to get and keep people's attention to take their side. The reason the corps are doing it is because if we don't believe in climate change they can improve their bottom line by continuing to poison the planet, and that's all they care about. The sheeple, having had their attention span and IQ reduced by watching faux or any republican congressman or senator inanely promote their agenda, vote and take action in favor of things that are provably against their benefit.
Sorry for wandering, but the point I'm making about Beck and his minions is that A, they have absolutely no agenda other than their own profit and power and enriching the corporations that back them, and B, idiots like Beck help keep the folks so dumbed down that they literally do not have the attention span to watch even a 15-minute news piece. If it can't be expressed in a screaming 10-seconds they can't handle it. So that audience is basically incapable of comprehending any news from TV that anyone with any sense would present. And since all other media, for the most part, like most internet and print publications, are now beyond their intelligence, they simply won't watch it or read it. So there's no reaching the Glenn Beck audience by now.
I don't know what the solution is for this brainwashing. I'm a huge believer in free speech, but I despair of what's happening to our country by the combination of corporate money, 'news' organizations with absolutely no scruples, and an audience conditioned by TV from childhood to believe that all issues can be explained and decided in less than thirty seconds. And then they vote however the Beck's of the world tell them to. It really makes me sad, because I don't think there's a way out of this mess before our nation totally implodes. And the fauxers aren't interested in governing anyway, only in firing up the masses.
