From Media Matters:

Exactly What Glenn Beck Lied About When Vilifying Soros

http://mediamatters.org/research/201012090001

Glenn Beck demanded an apology from Forbes magazine for claiming that he has been “falsely vilifying” George Soros and said, “I’d like to know exactly what I lied about.” Beck’s attacks on Soros are, of course, demonstrably false.

Historians Dismantle Beck’s Roman History Lesson

On both his radio and Fox News programs this week, Glenn Beck sought to show how the U.S. is “repeating the exact mistakes” that led to the fall of the Roman Republic. But according to Roman history experts consulted by Media Matters, Beck’s history lesson distorted or fabricated key facts.

Media Matters – Beck still doesn’t understand net neutrality

From Media Matters:

Beck still doesn’t understand net neutrality

November 22, 2010 11:46 pm ET

Glenn Beck again claimed that proposed net neutrality rules are “basically a Fairness Doctrine for the Internet” and would allow the government to “control what you see on the Internet.” In fact, net neutrality prohibits Internet service providers from controlling access to Internet content, and — contrary to Beck’s suggestion — would not require Fox to change its content.

Glenn Beck failed his 40-Day Challenge

October 29, 2010 6:16 pm ET

When Glenn Beck announced his “40-Day Challenge” on his Fox News show, he pledged to “stop all lies for the next 40 days.” Beck has also said that Fox would fire him if he made “inaccurate” claims. But Beck habitually relies on false and misleading statements — Media Matters compiled 40 inaccurate claims Beck made on Fox during his 40-Day Challenge.

How Glenn Beck led his tea party followers into the GOP

October 29, 2010 5:54 pm ET

Glenn Beck’s political activism — from the 9/12 Project to his 8/28 rally — has made him a leader in the tea party movement. Beck has used that status to drive his followers into the Republican Party and bolster its get-out-the-vote efforts for the 2010 elections.

Lee Fang – Memo: Health Insurance, Banking, Oil Industries Met With Koch, Chamber, Glenn Beck to Plot 2010 Election

From Truthout:

Memo: Health Insurance, Banking, Oil Industries Met With Koch, Chamber, Glenn Beck to Plot 2010 Election

Lee Fang, ThinkProgress: “While the Koch brothers – each worth over $21.5 billion – have certainly underwritten much of the right, their hidden coordination with other big business money has gone largely unnoticed. ThinkProgress has obtained a memo outlining the details of the last Koch gathering held in June of this year. The memo, along with an attendee list of about 210 people, shows the titans of industry – from health insurance companies, oil executives, Wall Street investors, and real estate tycoons – working together with conservative journalists and Republican operatives to plan the 2010 election, as well as ongoing conservative efforts through 2012.”

From ThinkProgress:

MEMO: Health Insurance, Banking, Oil Industries Met With Koch, Chamber, Glenn Beck To Plot 2010 Election

By Lee Fang at 9:50 am

In 2006, Koch Industries owner Charles Koch revealed to the Wall Street Journal’s Stephen Moore that he coordinates the funding of the conservative infrastructure of front groups, political campaigns, think tanks, media outlets and other anti-government efforts through a twice annual meeting of wealthy right-wing donors. He also confided to Moore, who is funded through several of Koch’s ventures, that his true goal is to strengthen the “culture of prosperity” by eliminating “90%” of all laws and government regulations. Although it is difficult to quantify the exact amount Koch alone has funneled to right-wing fronts, some studies have pointed toward $50 million he has given alone to anti-environmental groups. Recently, fronts funded by Charles and his brother David have received scrutiny because they have played a pivotal role in the organizing of the anti-Obama Tea Parties and the promotion of virulent far right lawmakers like Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC). (David Koch praised DeMint and gave him a “Washington Award” shortly after the senator promised to “break” Obama by making health reform his “Waterloo.”)

Media Matters – Glenn Beck’s guide to butchering a document and smearing a president

From Media Matters:

Glenn Beck’s guide to butchering a document and smearing a president

Glenn Beck and guests John Bolton and Stuart Varney mischaracterized a federal report to portray it as expressing “the worldview of the Obama administration.” In fact, the document was issued during the Bush administration and is designed to “stimulate strategic thinking,” not establish the administration’s “worldview.” Beck also falsely portrayed the report’s discussion of trends in developing nations as applying to the United States.

September 30, 2010 6:24 pm ET

A recent report detailed growing tension between Fox News and its most famous on-air personality, Glenn Beck, and cited complaints by Fox president Roger Ailes of “Beck’s hawking his non-Fox ventures too much on his Fox show.” Fox News journalists are reportedly “worried about the prospect that Beck is becoming the face of the network.”

Newser – How Glenn Beck Screws His Viewers

September 18, 2010 Leave a comment

By Kevin Spak, Newser Staff

(Newser) – If you thought Glenn Beck’s habit of pimping Goldline on his show seemed a bit distasteful before, get a load of this infographic from Wall Stats, created for Barry Ritholtz’s The Big Picture. It alleges that Goldline, the gold provider Beck is in bed with, uses the Fox star’s name to prod customers into buying coins intended for coin collectors, rather than investors.

Goldline pushes “collectible” European coins that, unlike bullion coins, are a lot harder for an amateur to value. It also sells them at a huge markup, charging 47% more than their competitors, according to a congressional investigation.
