** When he showed the opening soundbites of Creator/CenkUygur in regards to the latter leaving {{MSNBC}}, Beck's sidekicks Pat and Stu laughed mockingly at one of Cenk's slip-ups. Beck's response was essentially "I [[NotSoDifferent faced similar issues]] as him, but with different results". The two guys shut up rather quickly.

Glenn Beck is a political pundit slash talk-show host[[note]]not to be confused with Pundit Slash SlashFic (and yes, [[Rule34 it exists]])[[/note]]. His status as a political talking head has made him a strong magnet to controversy, but his ardent right-libertarian viewpoints set [[BerserkButton some people's teeth on edge]]. Probably best known for flowcharts, mobilizing the "9/12" sub-movement within the Tea Party, [[PatrioticFervor crying for his country]] on-air almost regularly (not really OncePerEpisode, but often enough for his detractors) and his over-the-top antics. He aligned himself with the Tea Party political movement in its infancy and spends hundreds of hours over each year talking about current events. In 2016, however, he very publicly began stepping back from some of his more incendiary positions and rhetoric, saying that he came to realize that he was contributing to the problem rather than offering a solution.

* BowTiesAreCool: Somewhat subverted. Glenn has been dressing in old-fashioned clothing fairly recently, including bow ties, but he openly admits none of it is fashionable.

His career began with ''The Glenn Beck Radio Program'', in 2000. He became nationally syndicated two years later, and continues the radio program. The success of the radio program encouraged him to move to television, creating ''The Glenn Beck Program'' on Creator/{{CNN}}. He then {{Channel Hop}}pped twice: first to Creator/FoxNewsChannel in 2009, and then to The Blaze (a channel he creates and maintains) in 2011.

** Similarly, Sen. Ted Cruz (who Beck endorsed in the 2016 Republican presidential primaries) fell into this by late September 2016, when Beck went from comparing Cruz to UsefulNotes/GeorgeWashington to complaining that he should have endorsed Rubio. The offense? Cruz issuing an official endorsement of the party nominee: Creator/DonaldTrump (who Beck was openly very critical of).

* TheRival: Of sorts with Keith Olbermann from ''Series/CountdownWithKeithOlbermann''. Olbermann talks about Beck like he's a psychotic menace to society. Beck talks about Olbermann like he's a pompous windbag high on his own ego.

* LargeHam: Him, Pat, and Stu are ''really'' prone to ChewingTheScenery, SuddenlyShouting followed by zen music playing as they cool down...and so forth. PlayedForLaughs, of course.
