A real journalist

Before you say or think anything, I know Fox also have their own agenda, and Glenn Beck isn’t really someone I always hold up as someone to follow. Beck is sometimes wrong; he is too much of a buffoon or is clowning around more than needed. As with all news stations or journalists, one can find faults and so on.

Also, you may regard me, this news station, Beck or whatever as radical conservative scum, fascists, neoliberal asses or anything else you might think.

However, there are two things you need to acknowledge Beck for; 1) trying to find stories i.e. doing ACTUAL JOURNALISM!
2) And not being afraid to tell those stories.

This is one of very few real journalists there are. You may think he is wrong, have an agenda or trying to go over the top sometimes, but he actually do the job that all journalists should do. If all reporters and all those people claiming to want to give us news actually did their work, this world would be a much better place. In this aspect Beck is someone to follow.

Please watch and really ask yourself the same questions as Beck does, the questions being asked are relevant even if you have an opposite political view. Also, how much of this have you heard in your country? It’s not only American news stations doing the silence thing…
