Glenn Beck De Ja Vous of The Smothers Brothers Show and TW3

By Nicholas Contompasis

Glenn Beck on The Fox News Channel has a new show that appears to be the resurrection of investigative journalism with a twist of humor. A skill that seems to have been lost in America after the "immaculation" of the anointed one " Barack Obama ".
I'm old enough and I'm sure many of you are, to remember two great TV shows that played during the mid 1960's, That Was the Week That Was and The Smothers Brothers Show.
Both shows had a biting edge of political satire that eventually got them thrown off the air.
Beck's show is starting to remind me of such great shows.
In the 60's the Vietnam War was heating up, the democrat party was falling apart as the far left liberals tried to grab control from the moderate democrats. Scandals and assassinations were happening almost all of the time with the American public losing faith in its governmental leadership. People started wondering "what the hell is going on with this country".
Then comes TW3 and the Smothers Brothers who start asking serious questions in a satirical way. This soft sell approach become very effective in getting the liberal point of view across to the main stream public. They did their homework just like Beck is doing and people are starting to wonder again " what the hell is going on with this country".
Beck is now a target of the White House and the far left because he is attacking them and doing it with a smile on his face. He is attacking almost every member of the Obama Czar list from Van Jones to Anita Dunn and he is very effective in his slow but deliberate approach.
He is exposing every dirty secret this group has and there seems to be many.
Glenn Beck is connecting the dots that the main stream media wont do. To his surprise and his riches hes coming up with the gold.
Every day his show becomes more compelling as he unravels the web of lies and misdeeds of the Obama Administration.
So, if you have the time, catch his show for it truly is becoming a classic that many years from now will be remembered fondly as a show that made the difference as did TW3 and The Smothers Brothers Show.

Glenn Beck's show is great. I tune in everyday. The White House plan to discredit him and FOX News has backfired....ratings are up and they're helping catapult Beck to rock star status.

I think that Beck's show will/has reached it's pentacle. When you use fact-less conspiracies you eventually will come to the point when it is unsustainable and you wear out your audience with your emotional/intellectual roller-coaster. Facts can be an inconvenient truth which beck dances around like a Rodeo Clown for the past 2 years. The End (on FIXED) has come and not a moment too soon.
