Underlying this MSM obsession with Beck, Limbaugh, etc. is the old idea that conservatives are stupid, ignorant, and easily led.
If we watch Beck we must believe everything he says and agree with every position he takes.
I don't like Beck. I actually blogged about how much i disliked him over four years ago. But i DVR his program everyday now. Not because i am a 100% fan but because he has been "breaking" news or at least pushing important matters out to a wider audience.
