Normally, I use this space to sort out the media trends in play, but last week during Keith Olbermann's Worst Person in the World segment, he called out "internet nerds" for starting a false internet rumor about Glenn Beck. Since it seemed to be aimed in Fark's general direction, I feel compelled to respond.

Mr. Olbermann, I am outraged. OUTRAGED, I tell you. *shakes fist*

It really is a dark day in American Politics when "internet nerds," as you call them, cannot simply make baseless, horrific allegations from thin air and then question the accused to respond. Although it appears to be standard operating procedure from some television people who happen to work for Fox and whose initials are G.B. and whose names might rhyme with "hen peck," it is perhaps a bit much for the internet community at large.

Oh sure, it's easy to throw lightning bolts from your Ivory Tower down upon our plebian hordes for something as benign as smearing the reputation of an esteemed colleague (even if he is a complete and utter dickwad) with the same techniques he uses on a regular basis to sway the opinions of people who apparently lack the critical thinking skills of carrots.

However, your response does merit consideration. In the light of the criticism, we'll take your advice and try to not propagate unsubstantiated rumors about huge, flaming dickwads like Glenn Beck and will instead focus on making fun of Glenn Beck for his ridiculous, real-life antics. Point taken.

Also, I still regret that we weren't able to make the number one slot, because yet again that went to Richard Lieberstein, president of your co-op board. We shot for #1, but we do know that Miss Precious Perfect is a hard act to follow.


Note, this response is satirical in nature. We do not mean to infer that Mr. Beck is actually a dickwad, huge dickwad, huge flaming dickwad, or unbelievably crass and ridiculous dickwad, even though everyone thinks he is.

Drew, your slip is showing.

at80eighty: he QQ'd to you guys over @ farkback? not out of character for him

Nah, it was those comments showing up in other threads, where they were yanked for threadjacking. They were showing up in mainpage threads that had nothing at all to do with Glenn Beck or even politics.

Corvus: jst3p: Corvus: jst3p: Corvus: Once again, posting lies about Obama again and again are still ok and will get green lit and not be deleted however.

As someone who is pretty politically neutral it makes me laugh to see both side use selective memory to try and paint this site as completely libtarded or right-wing batshiat insane.

Please if there was a time when right wing allegations were being deleted for being baseless please remind me.

Seems like "birther" threads get green lit.

You are so right! This site is completely biased!


*pats you on the head*

Great show me a counter example and show me wrong.

Just sating "it's even" doesn't make it so.

Death panels are not in the health care plans. But in thread after thread right wingers make the accusations they are.

Give me some examples.


I am too busy/lazy and lack the interest to find a thread just to have you find some pathetic reason to tell me why it isn't the same, rinse lather repeat. My goal isn't to change your mind, I know there is zero chance of that. Those on both extremes think this site is biased against their point of view, you don't have to agree with me. Again, given the lack of objectivity both sides often have I am not at all surprised that you don't.


It is still funny to watch poo-flinging in both directions and neither group realizing that half the shiat ends up on their hands.

witchofthedogs: netweavr: berylman: I am not exactly sure what Drew is getting at with "It really is a dark day in American Politics when "internet nerds," as you call them, cannot simply make baseless, horrific allegations from thin air and then question the accused to respond.". Is he implying that rumor mongering is defensible? That one is obliged to constantly defend themselves against fabricated character attacks?

Yes.

I had voiced my concern that Glenn Beck raped and murdered a young girl in 1990 on a review of one of his books on Amazon... they deleted it. :(

I think that we should take this as proof that Amazon.com condones/supports the rape and murder of young girls.
 
2009-09-08 03:02:48 PM
I find the rumors that Glenn Beck raped and brutally murdered a young girl in 1990 and then buried the body with Rush Limbaugh's help absolutely atrocious. However, because lives are at stake and because inaction only emboldens would-be murderers and rapists, that Mr. Beck and Mr. Limbaugh come forward with evidence proving beyond the shadow of a doubt that they are innocent of the brutal rape and murder of a young girl in 1990.

So, then you don't have everything else? Also, when can we expect this overhaul?

The early 90's were incredible times man, a lot of good and bad things happened. Something like Glenn Beck raping and murdering a random woman could have happened and no one would have noticed the times were that loose.

Marla Singer's Laundry: KingKauff: This is why I have an internet crush on you. Much like Glenn Beck had on that girl in 1990. But, I will not rape and murder you; just adore you from afar.

He had a crush on her, with a lead pipe, in the foyer.


Thanks for the love, KK!


I've got a lead pipe for you, but it's not in the foyer.

kimwim: Do you think Glen Beck likes rape?

Who doesn't like rape? I've got a forty pound box of it in the corner.

These allegations are outrageous and untrue. He raped and murdered Macaulay Culkin. The actor was replaced by an animitronic replica which had been ordered by Michael Jackson.

(The robot MC has snug-fitting Greek features and a fetching "O" of a mouth.)

theoutlaw: KingKauff: Marla Singer's Laundry: Gato Negro: All I know is, the Glenn Beck show comes on in a few hours and it's the #1 show on cable news.

That's like winning the "Miss Auschwitz" pageant.

I am soooo stealing that line! Also, is it safe to say that Glenn Beck likes rape, murder, arson, and rape?

You said rape twice.


Does that mean he really like rape? like he did with that girl in 1990 before or after he killed her, allegedly. We will not support baseless claims. We will not report random rumors as facts. We will not go around ruining the lives of good men and women by making baseless claims, we will not tolerate... wait, it's Glenn Beck. Carry on people.

Note how I didn't make a blanket state about liberals or conservatives. I was talking specifically about you. If I were to make a blanket statement, using you as my sole example and generalize that to all republicans, well that would just be ignorant.

New political parties are in the making, mark my words. The centrists of both parties will form one; the psychotics of the far left and right will form their respective parties.

So I was looking for information on the internet and I saw a rumor that Glenn Beck raped and murdered a young girl in 1990. I don't think that could possibly be true, right? There's no way Fox News would give a TV show to someone who raped and murdered a young girl in 1990, and Glenn Beck has a TV show on Fox News.

But I keep seeing this rumor around, and it just makes you think, you know? Whether or not Glenn Beck really did rape and murder a young girl in 1990, I'd like to see some credible sources weigh in on this.

What's really amazing is that Glenn Beck raped and brutally murdered a young girl in 1990 during Poppy Bush's speach to the American public school students.

jsobota: Now I'm not saying Glenn Beck raped and murdered a little girl in 1990, but this cupcake is delicious.

Like that?


Exactly. You see, as I understand it the point is to echo a fox news style attack in a funny way. Fox News doesn't say or probably even think that Barack Obama was born in Kenya. What they do is have on about a zillion people who keep asking the question, 'was barack born in kenya?' It's genius really.

I Said: pxlboy: Action Replay Nick: None of this would even be necessary if Beck would simply produce the death certificate proving he didn't rape and murder the girl.

jesus christ, are we still on that farking meme?

xzhibit was a meme. Longcat was a meme. Even "getting a kick out of these replies" was a meme.

An honest inquiry into whether or not Glenn Beck raped and murdered a young girl in 1990 is not a meme, it is a search for justice.


It is a sign that you are a pawn of the administration.

Fark doesn't allow hate speech (from the Kennedy death thread):
A note to people posting in this thread:

Fark welcomes a variety of political views. There are a lot of people here, and it seems that no two are in the same place on the political spectrum.

That said, hate speech will not be tolerated here. If you are here to indicate that you agree or disagree with everything that the person did, you are welcome to do so. If you are here to agree or disagree with the current political administration, you are also welcome to do so. If you cannot find a way to express that sentiment respectfully, please hold off posting until you can.

And yet seem to be okay with supporting this assault on Beck?
 
2009-09-08 03:30:51 PM
You know, some people say that Glenn Beck raped and murdered a girl in 1990. I wonder how he would respond to that.

Glenn Beck: Did he rape and murder a girl in 1990?

/sauce for the goose
 
2009-09-08 03:31:19 PM
Nemo's Brother: It is a sign that you are a pawn of the administration.

So, the seeking out and bringing to justice of rapists and murderers is somehow anathema to conservative values? The prevention of these aforementioned crimes is somehow against Republican principles?

Do you blame the victim?
 
2009-09-08 03:32:40 PM
There is no way that Glenn Beck raped and murdered a young girl in 1990. If Glenn Beck raped and murdered a young girl in 1990 then I would have heard about it by now.

Please stop spreading the baseless rumor that Glenn Beck raped and murdered a young girl in 1990.

For the same reason they don't have a #1 show on AM radio and why more sources on the internet have a liberal bias than a conservative bias.

Younger and more educated people tend to be more liberal.
Younger and more educated people watch less TV and spend more time on the internet.

It isn't exactly rocket science to connect the two.

I won't stand for that sort of baseless allegation against Drew. That is simply not true. He, as much as anyone would want the truth about that story known.

What assault? I simply want to know the truth about the rumors that Glenn Beck raped and murdered a girl in 1990. This is not at all unlike Glenn Beck wanting to know whether or not Barack Obama supports terrorists or if he was Born in Kenya. Glenn and I are both simply asking questions so we can get to the bottom of all this. We're fellow truth seekers.

I've heard that too, I can't believe it's taking Beck so long to deny it, he sure must have a lot to cover up before he publicly denies or apologizes.
If the last few years of conservative behavior have taught us anything. First he'll deny it, then he'll go into rehab or counseling. Then he'll say sorry, though he won't say what he's sorry about. Then he'll take a break from work to 'spend time with his family'. Then he'll do it again.

The quest for truth is not an assault. Nobody is saying outright that Mr. Beck raped and brutally murdered a young girl in 1990; rather, we are calling upon Mr. Beck to address the rumors that allege him raping and brutally murdering a young girl in 1990. If he is innocent he has nothing to worry about.

His silence on the matter to date, however, is ominous.

Xetal: For the same reason they don't have a #1 show on AM radio and why more sources on the internet have a liberal bias than a conservative bias.

I would say this is primarily because the other "news" networks and pundits are fairly interchangeable in terms of assumed biases whereas FOX is really all which caters to conservatives. Unless a person believes self-identifying conservatives are a small group, this should only be reasonable to assume high ratings compared to individual networks.
 
2009-09-08 03:41:06 PM
wow.

i've seen this "glenn beck raped a girl"....what do you call it...."joke", or whatever, for a few weeks now on Fark, but I figured it was the sort of baseless character assassination the anonymity of the internet affords the various Internet Tough Guys / the 71st Division of the Keyboard + Modem Brigade, but....wow.

i had no idea there was a grain of salt to it. I mean, it still may be the aforementioned baseless character assassination, but it may not. i just had no idea.

ehhhh. i don't even watch glenn beck. i think i saw him on fox one time. or he is on cnn? i just saw that creepy youtube vid of him joking to take naked pictures of a guest.

so what should the name of the "glenn beck raped a girl" brigade be? I mean, "Truthers" and "Birthers" are two easily recognizable names for the "9/11 was an inside jearb" and "OMG Borat Hussein Obama was born in Kenya LOL OMG" movement.

so what is the Glenn Beck name? Rapers? Deathers?

I agree. Personally, I'd feel a lot more comfortable about Glenn Beck if he'd just show us the documentation that proves he never raped and murdered a young girl in 1990. Why is he not addressing this important matter, and putting our minds at ease?

i had no idea there was a grain of salt to it. I mean, it still may be the aforementioned baseless character assassination, but it may not. i just had no idea.

ehhhh. i don't even watch glenn beck. i think i saw him on fox one time. or he is on cnn? i just saw that creepy youtube vid of him joking to take naked pictures of a guest.

so what should the name of the "glenn beck raped a girl" brigade be? I mean, "Truthers" and "Birthers" are two easily recognizable names for the "9/11 was an inside jearb" and "OMG Borat Hussein Obama was born in Kenya LOL OMG" movement.

so what is the Glenn Beck name? Rapers? Deathers?


We are the Beck-exposers. So Becksposers.

So...Drew is calling out Mr. Olbermann for protecting Glenn Beck?

For not being enough of an asshole?

I see. Well, you can't please everyone I guess.

Corvus: jst3p: I never accused you of making things up. This is exactly the poo-flinging I was talking about though. Thanks for making my point.

But you did accuse me of being biased, and that entails I make my opinion not based on facts.

Which is what you just admit you do.


Actually it does not mean anything of the sort. I implied that you and many others are selective in which facts they included in their data set, rejecting those that don't support your point of view. This is completely different from "making things up".

Martin Silenus: tepoundsofcheese: And yet seem to be okay with supporting this assault on Beck?

The quest for truth is not an assault. Nobody is saying outright that Mr. Beck raped and brutally murdered a young girl in 1990; rather, we are calling upon Mr. Beck to address the rumors that allege him raping and brutally murdering a young girl in 1990. If he is innocent he has nothing to worry about.

His silence on the matter to date, however, is ominous.
