I watched most of it live on GBTV last night & I enjoyed it very much.  Glenn can get on my nerves easily sometimes, but he really shines during events like this.

I've learned a lot listening to Glenn, particularly about American History.  I think he does good work.  I play his radio show at work & sometimes I see my customers get funny looks when Glenn, Stu & Pat start acting silly.

I don't like his maudlin stuff, but when it comes to history there is no one better out there on the subject....

Nets Punt on Glenn Beck Drawing Crowd of 65,000 in Dallas

By Matthew Balan | July 30, 2012 | 19:02


CBS, which devoted four on-air segments between May 30 and June 1, 2012 to the "hundreds of Catholics" who rallied in support of dissenting nuns, ignored the tens of thousands who came from all over the U.S. to see conservative talk show host Glenn Beck speak on Saturday. In fact, all of the Big Three networks have yet to cover Beck's "Restoring Love" event in Dallas on their morning and evening newscasts.

CBS's Dallas affiliate reported that "more than 65,000 people filled Cowboys Stadium" for Beck's event. On Monday, Chris Ariens of MediaBistro's TVNewser blog noted that the gathering was a trending topic on Twitter on Saturday night.

Susy Solis of CBS 11 News in Dallas noted that Beck, "one of the most polarizing figures in America," drew the ire of the "notorious" Westboro Baptist Church, who protested the talk radio host. One unidentified protester labeled Beck a "false prophet."

This kind of omission from the Big Three isn't surprising. The networks also punted when Catholic dioceses and organizations filed 12 lawsuits against the Obama administration's abortifacient/birth control mandate in federal courts across the U.S. on May 21, 2012. They also regularly ignore the March for Life in Washington, DC, which draws hundreds of thousands to Washington, DC every year. As DC conservative talk show host Chris Plante has put it, one of the liberal media's greatest powers is the power to ignore.
