"Only in his wildest dreams could an actual suicide bomber hope to do as much damage to this country."Glenn Beck is a highly polarizing political pundit and popular radio and former TV talk-show host. His status as a political talking head has made him a strong magnet to controversy, but his ardent right-libertarian viewpoints set some people's teeth on edge. Probably best known for flowcharts, mobilizing the "9/12" sub-movement within the Tea Party, crying for his country on-air almost regularly (not really Once per Episode, but often enough for his detractors) and his over-the-top antics. Throughout the Internet, there are heated discussions about whether or not he's misleading people for his own ends, Only in It for the Money, completely sincere, certifiably insane, only using the crazy antics as a tool to spread his message, a thorough researcher who wants to know the truth, or the Only Sane Man. Or some combination thereof.He used to have a show on CNN before moving to Fox News Channel in 2009, where he rose to fame. He aligned himself with the Tea Party political movement in its infancy and spent hundreds of hours over the course of two years talking about current events. In 2011 and despite sky-high ratings, Beck left Fox in a move that had many questioning the friendly farewell from both parties. He has since started his own subscription-based pay cable network, delivering the same performance as on Fox in a much greater quantity and shows no signs of slowing down.Author of political novel The Overton Window and dystopia novel Agenda 21.Not to be confused, if such a thing were even possible, with BECK.
