Glenn Beck is not repsonsible for any acts of violence committed by his viewers : he's just an entertainer.
Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank takes a look at the unsettling rise of silly Fox News host Glenn Beck. The wildly popular broadcaster, with three million daily viewers, perfectly captures the vitriol of our time and the fact-free state of our political culture. The secret to his success is his willingness to traffic in the fringe conspiracies and Internet hearsay that others wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole: death panels, government health insurance for dogs, FEMA concentration camps, an Obama security force like Hitler's SS. But Beck, who is, according to a recent Gallup poll, admired by more Americans than the Pope, has nothing in his background that identifies him as an ideologue, giving rise to the speculation that his right-wing shtick is just that--the act of a brilliant showman, known for both his over-the-top daily outrages and for weeping on the air.--From publisher description.
