Thread Name: BS: what about Glen Beck?
Subject: RE: BS: what about Glen Beck?
Beck, Limbaugh, Hannity and Palin have the function of reinforcing the prejudices and false beliefs of those who want to cling to their false beliefs and still satisfy the urges of these people who were taught as children to base their positions on information and facts.
Since any objective search for truth quickly dispels many of theirs positions, such as, for example, that it is better for a private sector, profit motivated, bureaucrat to decide the fate of their health care rather than a government bureaucrat who has much less motive to let them die, the above mentioned media personalities provide alternate "facts" which suit their beliefs.
