It continues to amaze me how CNN/NBC -watching-people parrot the judgments of mainstream media about Beck while those that take the time to listen to him in context and read about economics, politics, and media see a whole different picture. Beck represents a rapidly growing segment of population that is horrified to discover what lies below the facades of modern political parties (Dems and Republicans), is shocked to learn what ponzi scheme monetary policy of the Fed has reaped, and sees the failures of the socialist / progressive agenda of the 20th Century in Europe and US. Ironically, despite the anti-Beck hate speech, he continues to preach a positive message of self-reliance, individual responsibility, accountability, and ethical life. Socialism has run its course and socialist countries are dying economically and culturally. Mainstream media is experiencing cognitive dissonance with that and having difficulty accepting voices like Beck's pointing out the failures of 20th century and progressive policies. But truth has a way of coming out, ...eventually.
