The following has a primary source link that gives a 404 error. Until we get some better sources, I've moved it here. Hypegnosis 15:47, 8 September 2009 (EDT)

"Over at CNN Headline News, rising star and assclown-to-a-lesser-degree (and, lest we forget, Famous Mormon) Glenn Beck may not be the one-note windbag his TV and radio shows make him out to be: In a surprisingly candid interview with [on January 9, 2007], Beck admits he's a 'recovering alcoholic rodeo clown with limited education, who’s conservative,' then goes onto say 'impartial journalists' like Fox News' Bill O'Reilly and MSNBC's Keith Olbermann should just 'fess up: 'I'd like to throw both of them under the bus, quite frankly. Anybody who tells you that they're objective and non-biased and this is the straight truth, period, is bullcrap'," Bill Frost wrote January 11, 2007, in Frost Bites for Salt Lake City Weekly.

Awful piece of crap

Where do I go to get the "source watch" on source watch? This is far from an objective profile of a personality. Shame on you for trying to pass yourselves off as a source reference. You re no better than Beck when it comes to being a mouth piece for your political (and probably financial) backers. Specifically, where do you cite your source for the 9/12 group being an "astroturf" movement (just saying so does not make it so, no matter how much you think it does). Also, what is the basis for saying Cleon Skousen is a racist? In all of his writings and speeches you could certainly find at least one quote to support this slanderous allegation.

Um, what would you call someone who characterized African-American children as "pickaninnies" and described American slave owners as the "worst victims" of the slavery system and said that "[slave] gangs in transit were usually a cheerful lot? [1] Hypegnosis 18:37, 10 November 2009 (EST)
