Glenn Beck Squashes Ed Schultz In TV Ratings, Outdoor Bandwagon Rallies

Sorry, progressives (or do you like the slur “liberals” more?): Saturday’s One Nation Working Together rally drew far fewer attendees than Glenn Beck’s crazytown call at Restoring Honor. The imperfect science of measuring crowds lead the 400 groups behind ONWT to claim a crowd of 175,000, but most media outlets are calling bull. So there you have it: Extremist Glenn Beck is a better community organizer than MSNBC’s Ed Schultz.

      A: I heard NOTHING about this. Marketing was for shit.
      B: Ed Shultz is a shrill blowhard, even us liberals think so. Not as bad as Norman Goldman though.

      Ed Schultz is just the liberal version of Beck. They’re both crazy populist conspiracy theorists. I’ll bet they’d get along in real life.

      Oops! Forgot to include the actual numbers. When the numbers are presented, they show more Liberals than Teabaggers. I guess if we don’t show the numbers, they actually don’t exist.

      Proof again, that advertising works. Americans are a bit more ignorant and the wealthy get another win.

      Ignorance isn’t bliss (when your rights are being eliminated).

      You want numbers? Oh, you want some lies? OK! Let’s say one million people for One Nation Working Together and ten thousands for Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor.
      Or if you want the truth just compare with your eyes :

      @Tayeb: Here are the actual figures for you:

      OneNation Rally: Approx. 187,000

      Restoring Honor,DC Approx. 87,000

      Restoring Honor,10.2.10:Approx. 700(out of exp.8000)

      That last was a real success,huh ‘Brietbart’?
      If you doubt the numbers presented take it up w/ CBSNews.

      In the meantime, aerial shots taken at the beginning of a rally aren’t credible sources as evidence of it’s failure. It was pretty much an all day event.
      Have you checked the time the shot was taken? Because surely it would be available.

      No? Of course….NOT.

      Found original source of One Nation photo. Photo was taken just after noon.
      Date: Taken on October 2, 2010 at 12.04pm EDT

      Exif data:
      Date and Time (Original) 2010:10:02 12:04:51
      Date and Time (Digitized)2010:10:02 12:04:51
      What is Exif data?

      Exif data is a record of the settings a camera used to take a photo or video. This information is embedded into the files the camera saves, and we read and display it here.

      I also found the original source of the Restoring Honor photo. It was taken by an AP photog. It’s time is — 12:49 PM ET.

      POOR LEFTY BABIES, YOU ALL FORGOT TO TAKE PICTURES OF THESE 187,000 GHOSTS. WHAT A BAD LUCK !!!

      @Brandon H: Your not a ‘liberal’. It’s my experience when someone gets on a such a forum as this, referring to themselves as such…their not.
      What you are is full of bunk.
      It’s ok if you don’t agree w/ their frank candor or even the way they represent themselves. It also doesn’t score them any points from you when they call you all evil[which both do rather frequently].
      However, Schultz & Goldman can back everything they claim up w/ facts. That’s what you ‘OFF’-wingers really hate.

      How’s it feel to have a job where all YOU do is tell lies for a living.
      Can they pay you enough to soothe your soul?

      @Tayeb:”Taken on October 2, 2010 at 12.04pm EDT”
      Know what time the event started?

      12:00PM.

      So you measured the success of the turnout from an aerial shot taken TWO MINUTES after the event started.

      Thank you. You just validated my point.

      This was not a liberal or a democrat rally, this was a progressive radical rally, that’s why they were so few.
      Restoring honor = the People.
      One Nation = commies and jerks.
      Glenn Beck defeated 400 radical lefty organizations, that’s so great !!!

      Every time you ‘Off’-wingers are stunted by the facts you start becoming unhinged.
      Stop foaming at the mouth, do yourself a favor and find a real cause to believe in other than ‘how to lie & follow your leaders off a cliff’.

      @Tayeb: Lmao,xD…yeah ,cuz your life as a right-wing troll is oh’ so fulfilling.

      Your mother is the dumbass…she shoulda saved the world from the embarrassment to humanity that you are if only she swallowed instead.

      Btw: Anybody can overturn trash cans & take pictures genius.
      Heh,heh,heh…You people are so pathetic & morally destitute. I wouldn’t put anything beneath you.
      Ask yourself this question ‘Einstein': Why is is so important to you? You care an awful lot more than sanity dictates.Oh I got! IT’S BECAUSE IT WAS SUCCESSFUL.
      Sore losers.Do you realize that all your backbiting & nitpicking is only serving to make you all look foolish & petty in the face of all the world to see?

      I can’t wait until you orcs get what you got coming for such a long time.
      Soon, all the dirty,trashy,tricks & lies won’t be enough to keep you from being diminished into complete irrelevance. Oh…wait,strike that—THAT DAY IS ALREADY COME.

      Well, we’ll see who will be diminished into complete irrelevance in the mid-term elections in less than a month (and then in 2012), I can’t wait too !

      Please just be patient…

      PS: oh I forgot, you’ll simply be in denial once again, you would make a good muslim !!!
