A Top Search Query Bringing People to this Blog - 'Glenn Beck Idiot'

(Keywords and tags: , , 's fails to be comedy as badly as he fails to be )

Looking through the referral logs from sitemeter, I've noticed that some very specific search terms bring me search engine traffic. Lately, among queries like IN HER ASS (don't ask me...) and crazy "christian fundamentalists", two search terms are giving me a lot of hits; Ezekiel 38 and variations of glenn beck idiot, with the occasional glenn beck asshole.

People searching for the biblical chapter Ezekiel 38 might be a little disappointed with my take on it - it's a favorite of the lunatic fringe and some the people reading my post about it won't be happy to find out they're kooks. And, since I'm ninth on the first page of the results for that query right now, that'll be a lot of people.

People searching 'glenn beck idiot' and 'glenn beck asshole' won't be so disappointed. What I find so funny about this is that there are a lot of people out there who think CNN's Glenn Beck is an idiot and/or asshole. According to Media Matters, Beck has said that Bush is alone fighting "World War III," while Gore worries that "[t]he ice is starting to melt in Greenland", that Cindy Sheehan's a "tragedy pimp" for her hunger strike to protest Iraq war, that he "likes Bush" and that "stupid people" vote for Kerry, "Can you imagine ... The New York Times coming out and saying, 'Hey, the ovens aren't so bad,' back in World War II?" , and - what got him on this blog - If "Shanghai is under water," "does anybody really care?" regarding global warming.

So it's really no surprise that 'glenn beck idiot' and 'glenn beck asshole' are popular search terms in regards to this moron (now I'll see 'glenn beck moron').

I have a theory about Beck. He's a bad publicity whore. P.T. Barnum once said, "There's no such thing as bad press," and I think Beck agrees. No one on cable news needs publicity more than Beck. According to TVNewser, CNN's newest rightwing bozo is tanking.

When he premiered in May, he averaged 81,000 demo and 167,000 total viewers. In June, he sagged a bit, averaging 76,000 demo and 163,000 total viewers.

Now his show airs several times a night -- at 7, 9, and midnight -- so Headline News will point out that he actually gets three times as many viewers. But let's look at his individual time slots. At 7pm, Beck averaged 79,000 demo viewers in June. Showbiz Tonight averaged just a few thousand less last June. And he's actually down 19 percent among total viewers for the hour.

At 9pm, Beck is losing viewers for Headline News. In June 2005, Prime News Tonight averaged 110,000 demo and 317,000 total viewers. In June 2006, Beck averaged 82,000 demo and 196,000 total viewers -- declines of 25 and 38 percent respectively. Maybe Beck's premiere poll, "When Will the TV Show Get Cancelled," wasn't a joke...


It's been suggested that as much as half of Bill O'Reilly's audience are people wanting to find out what Keith Olbermann and Jon Stewart are going to rip Bill for saying the next day. Maybe Beck wants a slice of that demographic pie.

But, compared to O'Reilly, Beck is just no fun. O'Reilly's a mental lightweight and blowhard who tries to put himself across as a serious pundit. His bluster, tortured logic, and transparent lies make for great unintentional comedy - FOX gave a show to a monkey who doesn't know he's a monkey.

Beck, on the other hand, thinks he's a comedian. And, while an idiot like O'Reilly taking himself seriously is a hoot, a comedian who's not funny is only sad. No one watches Beck because, honestly, there's no way for it to be any good. If you take it as a comedy show, it's not funny. And you can't take it as Bill O'Reilly style unintentional comedy, since the comedy is only theoretical and it's not unintended anyway.

As much as I enjoy getting traffic from people typing 'Glenn Beck is an idiot' and 'Why is Glenn Beck an asshole?' into Google, I'm not fooling myself that it's going to last much longer. Unless he figures out some way to make his show watchable, he'll be gone before next year.

I guess I better write about Ezekiel some more...

Ha Ha! Glen Beck, what a joke. I e-mailed CNN before this clownface retarded non-funny chucklenut (a Mike Malloy term I like, equally applicable to this fool) and said look, we don't need more right wing propaganda on TV, so please do not bring this clown on. Look what happens. Oh, and by the way, I quit watching CNN now. It's time people quit pretending that there is a choice between FOX and CNN. NO, it's the same crap. Get smart and find the news; don't expect the news to come to you.

Hilarious! I googled "Glenn Beck asshole" and this is the first entry I came across. I just saw this aging fratboy on CNN for the first time ever, and after five minutes, ended up screaming "fuck you" at the top of my lungs when he began blaming the deaths of hundreds of innocent Lebanese on...themselves.
That's right: according to Beck, it's their own faults for failing to use democratic processes to kick Hezbollah out of Lebanon. Fuck. Him.

Dreamboat Skanky said...

Glenn Beck really is a loathsome toad. I found it hilarious and refreshing that my cathartic and random jab at him on a search engine turned up your site: expect a stream of the offended to turn up here on your doorstep. Keep fighting the good fight.

Glenn Beck is worst than loathsome. Why would I give 2 shits about what what goes on in that drug addled brain of his. I do not understand why networks won't just give you the news. That's all I want. Everytime you think CNN is going to give you news you can use, they follow it up with a crappy
"Now let's join Suzy Fuckface and Bobby Dickwad and see what the left and the right thinks."
I DON'T CARE WHAT THEY THINK! I CAN DECIDE ON MY OWN, THANK YOU!!

Too funny. I also googled "gleen beck asshole" and found this site to be first. God, this guy is the worst. I'm just glad I was able to find others that agreed with me. What idiots could actually watch this show and agree with him? Nevermind...I can think of a few.... :-/

haha..i typed "Glen Beck Asshole" also. IS it just me or is he trying to be like the character Alan Shore in the show Boston Public.

Right on, man! I typed the "Glen Beck Asshole" phrase to find EXACTLY this kind of validation! I'm just so frustrated and bewilderded that this talentless, abrasive, verbally-masterbating, Yay-Hoo, goof-ball, Nyudnick gets all this airtime to talk at me and waste my attention with his wild-eyed ridiculous takes on things, when I just want the goddamn news! What ever happened to that CNN lady from the early 90's with the big face (and mouth like an exit-wound) who simply sat there without circus side-show freaks like Beck, and just soberly delivered me the facts? She must be rested by now -- bring her back, CNN! Bless you for this page...

I am commencing a personal jihad against Glen Beck to rid him from the airwaves. I will bombard CNN with an endless stream of reasons why this idiot should be be cancelled immediately and I implore others to rise up and eliminate this dickwad from our television sets.

I Googled "glen beck is retarded" and got it placed 6th. Pretty good! Suffice to say, i emailed CNN about a dozen times asking them to take this loon and that loathsome shrilling banshee Nancy Grace off prime. I begged and pleaded with them not to become Fox light. You cant outfox fox! And now Fox's ratings are starting to tank as America slowly steps back from its war fervor. Guess it'll be great to see this blovating ignoramus be drawn n quarted when the public wakes up.

LOL just channel surfing up here in Canada and stumbled across the Glenn Beck show. I said to myself gee those Americans are whacked. Then as I watched a little more I realized that this guy is just like that other door knob of yours Bill O’Reilly.

After about 10 minutes I figured out that he is just a propagandist for the extreme right wing Republicans and that he mustn’t actually speak for all Americans

At this point I had never heard of Glenn Beck so I thought I’d Google his name and throw in asshole at the end and lo and behold I find myself at this site.

From what I understand this clown dose not represent the thinking of most Americans, Right?

After listening to him for a couple of minutes I felt the visceral urge to kick his ass.

I couldn't stop laughing when I saw this as I searche "Glenn Beck is an asshole." What got me to officially hate him was the 20 dollar bill folding trick which supposedly has the twin towers and penatgon ablaze? That's what cued me off that he was an asshole. What are the chances of a geometric folding designed by a group of men in the early 1900s hardly have anything to do with 9/11. All I've got to say is..GLENN BECK IS AN ASSHOLE

I am so glad I am not the only one to think Glenn Beck is a total arrogant asshole! How could anyone at CNN give this washed-up radio personality a show of his own?? I hope they lost their job as fast as CNN has lost viewers. I will be so glad when this trash is cancelled and CNN goes back to news rather than giving some blowhard a medium in which to broadcast his warped views.

I'm not even a conservative...

It is over a year later and look who is still on the air. I guess it is harder than you thought to shut down free speech. I think your numbers on the ratings were inaccurate also but as we have seen with the global warming info you liberals usually are!!! See you at the polls in '08!!!!!!

BOB said...

I love how Liberals say the most vile, hateful things about conservatives, and wish such horable deaths upon us. But yet claim to be the side of compassion, respect, and tolerance of all types of people. You guys really need to read what you wright about the right, then stop and think about it for a while. PS, Glenn is practicly spearheading the drive to look into President Bush's coverup's on the Border, but yet he is still a Republican shill. He has even said, numerous times in fact "if you want to impeach him, start here". Still he's a Republican shill, please guys actually do 5 minutes of homework on a subject before opening your trap about real world events. This is not bong hits during a frisbee golf game break, this is reality and let the adults discuss it logicly.

I also did a google search for Glenn Beck Asshole and this is the first site that was listed. After watching Beck for the first time, I could not believe he has a show! This guy is reckless and also he is just plain stupid, he makes less sense than those idiots on Fox News. I am not a conservative but my issue with Glen is not about his views, its about his stupidity! Get him off the air before he really makes a fool out of himself more than he already has!

Anonymous said...

Yes, I Googled "Glenn Beck is am asshole" and this is what I got. Truer words couldn't be spoken. I have the misfortune to work with a douchebagette in our IT department that believes everything that comes out of Glenn's trap, and complains every time I put up resistance. It's these cabbage-headed dolts that have this country in the toilet. I say render Glenn and all his listeners abroad and waterboard them for good measure.

btw to the last poster; that comment about not expecting the real news to come to you is true & great.

Oh and I got here by searching "glenn beck asshole" which is probably ranking pretty high in the search engines.

Jessica said...

Wow, I googled "Glenn Beck is an Asshole" because I was reading his hatemail and saw someone mention to google it and see what comes up. It's unbelievable how many people hate him so violently and obviously don't pay attention to him when he speaks. I listen to Glenn's radio show every day, and I would consider myself a liberal if I gave a crap about politics at all. Glenn, when you get down to it, is a good person. Not only that, he thinks it's funny to read what you uninformed folks think of his program, since you're obviously only taking bits and pieces of it wildly out of context. I don't agree with everything he says, but he's not asking me to. He's not asking you to, either. But he's probably done more research on any of it than either of us has. So keep on posting blog entries, but Glenn's been around on the radio for years and he's going to be around for years more despite you and your misguided commentary.

Wisco said...

Glenn, when you get down to it, is a good person.

It's generally considered a good idea to read a post before you comment on it.

"Good people" don't make holocaust jokes. "Good people" don't reduce an island of millions to a bunch of people who make drink umbrellas and ask about the destruction of said island, "Who cares!"

Dicks do that. Assholes do that. And that's why "Glenn Beck Idiot" and "Glenn Beck asshole" keep bringing people here -- because reasonable people see what he says and assume he's an idiot and an asshole.

I'm not inclined to disagree.

P.S.: You're a liberal like I'm a southern baptist preacher.

Jessica said...

Yep, I did read the post, and as I said, Glenn's comments are taken wildly out of context. It's not hard to do! Here we go:

Wisco said:

"I'm a southern baptist preacher" "who" "assume(s)" "reasonable people" "like" "Dicks" "and" "Assholes".

Try actually listening to his radio program the entire way through and listen to what he says, instead of quoting articles that pick one line and don't give Glenn the benefit of a proper explanation. As you can see, it's easy to twist someone's words around to produce a negative connotation.

Wisco said...

Except they aren't taken out of context. Now that you've bothered to read the post, follow the links. Not only are all the quotes there, but clips with the context. Besides, about the only context that would make any of the quotes OK would be, "Only a fucking idiot would say, __________. Seriously, you'd have to be a real prick."

Jessica said...

Yup. Followed the links. You apparently didn't read my comment where I said I listen to his radio program every day. I didn't have to click on the links to know exactly what he was talking about in every one of the quotes in this entry, and trust me, I have far more context than those links do. As I said before, try actually listening to an entire three-hour show one day (just try it!) and see if you still feel as strongly as you do.

Wisco said...

Glenn -- I mean "Jessica" -- you wrote:

As I said before, try actually listening to an entire three-hour show one day (just try it!) and see if you still feel as strongly as you do.

I've watched his show on CNN Headline News and it's like eating lead paint chips -- I'm pretty damned sure it actually makes you stupider for the experience.

I suppose if I were to pummel my brain with Beck's dumbassery on a daily basis, I might come to the conclusion that he's right. But that's less an argument in favor of his views and more an argument against the inevitable brain damage such daily abuse would inflict.

If I were you, I'd stop now before you do any more damage. Make it a new years resolution, like quitting smoking. I'm not sure you'll get any of that IQ back, but there's always hope. Either way, you won't get any dumber.

Anonymous said...

I think I caught 5 minutes of this tool's show one time and that's all it took to realize he's an asshole. Then, after seeing his unoriginal, uncleverly-titled book at Borders today, I said to myself, "this guy is an even bigger asshole than I thought. I should google it and see if I'm right." Looks like I am, haha. I didn't need to listen to a full 3 hour show (as someone suggested) to figure it out, same way you don't need 3 hours in a bar to figure out who the loudmouth obnoxious overgrown drunk fratboy is, IT'S OBVIOUS TO THOSE OF US WITH A BRAIN!

I think it's interesting that they canceled Beck's show right before the election. As with most liberals, they would rather silence a dissenting voice rather than try to answer his talking points. The Democratic Party portrays themselves as smarter, more concerned, for the little people, etc. When you're motivated by hated, you will eventually be consumed by it. I'm a conservative Libertarian. In the '60s I was a radical liberal, but I grew up when I saw through the hypocrisy and hatred for anything conservative. I don't hate blacks, hispanics, or anyone else by virtue of their skin color or beliefs. The liberals are already playing the race card with Obama, saying that America is a racist country. So if he doesn't get elected, it won't be because of his questionable associations or policies that will essentially destroy this country, but America's "racism." Pennsylvania's former Governer, Bob Casey, wasn't allowed to speak at the Democratic Convention because he was pro-life. And being a Democrat didn't matter--it was that one issue that prevented him from speaking, even though he had no intention of even mentioning anything about that subject.
In other words, freedom of speech is only allowed if the speech is liberal. Period. End of story. Reading all the hate posts here is amusing--especially considering it's coming from caring, concerned liberals.
Incidentally, I found this site by typing in something very different. I'll leave you to figure out what it was.

Wisco said...

Yes, what a terrible thing it is that CNN won't have Glenn telling demonstrable lies every weeknight. The right thing to do is to keep him on, despite blowful ratings for his laughable little dog and pony show.

After all, American business has a responsibility to keep dumbasses employed -- even when they suck, right? Wait, is that a tenet of conservatism?

Must be a new one.

Still, you won't have to look far for more Glenn. He'll be on Fox News, with the rest of the bullshit artists.

I always try 2 give everyone the benefit of a doubt.I was not a big fan of Glen beck but once in a while a listen the radio show. He does ahve some good points, and he does do research, however what I do not understand is "WHAT IS A BAPTIST MINISTER WHO IS SUPPOSE 2 SHOW COMPASSION AND NO HATRED AND SPREADING GOD'S WORDS USING SUCH VULGAR LANGUAGE.Remeber people sometimes children might enter this blog, and we as adult are NOT SETTING A GOOD EXAMPLE.Also do not forget that he is a family man and has children. How would you fill if I decide to attack the Baptist Religion based on what people say about it. Then what! How will you as a minister will feel if I personally attack your credentials,your believes, and everything else. So it is ok 2 complain but do we have to make it so dirty, can we use clean words? You know it is pathetic when all of you go after an individual just because of what he loves to do. Maybe he sometimes he crossed the line, maybe sometimes he made people feel small N insignificant, but that does not give any of us the right 2 insult. We could try to be a little more constructive by the way we give our opinion. By the way I'm not a liberal or conservative. I'm just a person with christian believes and some of the comments made were crude,unnecessary,and plain disgusting, including the one about the nun and the F word. Once again if a catholic individual could take this very seriously. I know we have the freedom of speech, but please keep in mind the children who might wonder in this blog,thanks

Whilst watching 'The Colbert Report' they did a piece on Glen Beck - I immediately had to search 'Glen Beck Asshole'. Does anybody take this cock-knocker seriously, I mean, crying and repeatedly saying 'I love my country' then slagging off 9-11 victims? What a prick.

What really grinds my gears though is that this jerk off is just the tip of the no-news crowd that spout spurious thoughts (I use the term EXTREMELY loosely) as facts.

Americas TV stations need to start producing news, not voyeuristic entertainment shite - please!! 'Cos here in the UK were starting to take the same approach and it sucks ass!

If only your news shows were as intelligent as The Daily show and the aforementioned Colbert report your news would be so much more informative.

Glenn Beck is a fat white racist!!! He is trying to turn this country against President Obama, because he still can't stomach the fact that we have a black president.
