The highly viewed FOX television show The Glenn Beck Show has surged upward in viewership the last few weeks with the media industry Nomitron Ratings at an unheard of 9.4 high. The only other broadcast to hit anywhere near this mark was Kennedy’s assassination, the moon landing in 1969, and Princess Diana’s death, and of course the pilot episode of the 1983 miniseries “V”, which had a 22 share.
Currently, the Glenn Beck Show is more popular than news shows on CNN, MSNBC, HNN, NBC, CBS, ABC combined. The only other show that tops the GB Show is the O’Reilly Factor at the 8PM time slot. O’Reilly is also a FOX news commentary show that dominates late evening news slots.
Even Rush Limbaugh has seen an upsurge in ratings, as recession weary Americans turn to a source of truth and fairness after months of distortion from overly-supportive administration franchises that pass as mainstream media.
The ACORN melt-down last year, the refusal to investigate the New Black Panther Party concerning voter intimidation, and the feet dragging by the Democratic Congress to investigate where taxpayer monies have gone as far as bailouts, and the recent grandiose vacation of Michelle Obama during a difficult recession, is causing Americans to re-question a Democratic Congress, and the White House being controlled by the seemingly inept Barack Obama.
Harold Sage, a Texas farmer had this telling comment, “Hell in a hand basket I say! Congress was ready to spend millions on investigating steroid use in baseball, which gets no federal funding, but suddenly they’ve got cold feet about protecting us taxpayers when a bunch of inner-city clowns defrauds the government. What’s wrong with these people?”
More news at 11, though 11 of what is perhaps the biggest question we’ll answer at that time.
