I loved Jonah Goldberg’s statement: “As a conservative, you always have to hold out the possibility that governing people are just stupid rather than evil. “ As a liberal, I felt the same way about George Bush. But I can't apply it to Fox News.

I think it's a definitive tactic used by Fox to scare people about democratic control of Washington, and a distraction from actual news people ought to know. Given FoxNews's history of incorporating a conservative agenda in "news"-telling, distorting news and firing reporters for refusing to falsify coverage (setting precedent that it's not illegal to distort the news), I have no reason to believe this is "just a mistake". I smell an agenda.

1. If you are a consumer visiting (the "cash for clunkers" website) the Federal government cannot take control over your computer, nor will it ask permission to do so.

2. The "Terms of Use" statement to which Beck refers in this clip is not from Rather it is a login page for dealer transactions located at

3. The only people who can get login credentials for the site are dealers who have been screened and registered for the "cash for clunkers" program.

4. To summarize: the page in question isn't on and can only be used by dealers who have already registered. Consumers won't be impacted by any of this.

Let me get this straight now.

The cars for clunkers program was all a mass conspiracy for the government to take over everyone who has a clunker's computer...



use super secret mind control technology to get people to drive more fuel efficient cars!




where was I, oh yeah.



they would plant super secret nerve gas in all the new fuel efficient cars that would turn people into zombie socialist/fascists (depending on what cereal Beck ate that morning I guess)



Thank god Glenn Beck uncovered this government plot!

(wait, which president authored the Domestic Spy Program?)

He was misinformed, if anything.

No one notices the MILLIONS of mistakes EVERYONE else in the world makes on air... unless it's a right wing pundit, of course.

All you did Jake was give Ammo to Faggots.

attn ThePyg:

why do yah say that Beck is "misinformed"?

Beck chooses the topic, researches the topic and presents the topic

so, who misinformed him? did he misinform himself? did FoxNews misinform him? do the liberals have some kinda mind control that caused Beck to be misinformed? is this some evil plot by Olberman?

be honest ... Beck is a liar and deceiver

As I pointed out in my post, everyone makes mistakes. Obama said that we were the 5th most Muslim populated country in the World, and that was wrong.

Are you gonna call him a liar and deceiver, now?
