You've got to hand it to Glenn Beck. He knows that an effectively narrow worldview must strangle out any opinions and/or verifiable facts about reality that do not contribute to the structure as has been meticulously crafted by one's self. The problem is, if you don't offer a service, people will be forced to go elsewhere to seek it out. And that can be dangerous!
Beck and his team put it together in a relatively short amount of time, apparently. And it really shows. The thing is fucking riddled with errors. Take, for example, Beck's introduction to the website. I took the time to put my old proofreading skills to work, and just look at all the corrections I made in just the first three paragraphs…

But there comes a time when you have to stop complaining and

Come on, guys. You could have taken an extra week to work out all the kinks, could you have?
