              Did you read the link? They weren't taking a quote form his show. They took a quote from his 2003 book The Real America. They mentioned this quote to highlight Beck's hypocrisy on the issue. Notice that the first sentence of the article reads "Given Glenn Beck's specious attacks on Anita Dunn's statements on Mao Zedong, it seems noteworthy that in his 2003 book, The Real America, Beck wrote..." Beck blasted the White House communications aide for supposedly idolizing Mao Tse Tsung and praising his actions (which she never dius) by highlighting her mention of Chairman Mao in a speech. Yet he made a similar comment regarding Adolf Hitler Hitler in his own book. Nobody is saying that he was actually praising Hitlers atrocities or idolizing the man, but he is being a hypocrite for blasting Anne Dunn for making a similar comment in similar context about Mao.

              It is even more ironic is, as you say, Mr Beck actually said on his show that Ms. Dunn's comment was like him making a comment about Adolf Hitler. Beck did make an exact such comment in his book. Glenn Beck is the consummate liar and hypocrite.

              Media Matters is spot on in pointing outt this bit of hypocrisy from Glenn Beck.

                Media Matters does have an agenda, which they do not hide. They show their bias in that they do not fact-check liberal commentators, only conservative ones. However, when they do fact check Conservative statements they are generally spot on and accurate, and the do a pretty good job of research, Media Matters certainly has a far better record for accuracy and truthfulness than Woldnetdaily, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Youtuibe videos, anonymous right wing blog posts, and chain e-mails that others like to post so much on this forum (often without acknowledging teh original source).

                  Show me in the text where what mediamatters is saying is said. To make it easy, here's the pages they were quoting....

                  Why I Am a Mormon

                  Growing up Catholic in my family, there were questions you don't ask because "the devil is making you question this" or you'd get my favorite answer: "It's a mystery." Now in my thirties, I realized that I really didn't know God at all on a personal level. I only believed in God because someone told me He existed. And I was no longer afraid of questioning.

                  I wish I were the president, just for the 747 and the cabinet I could assemble. I would have the best minds that I could find with a special eye out for those people who would vehemently disagree with each other. I'd let them argue it out and just listen. Well, I'm not the president so the jet doesn't take off when I tell it to and I can't hire great minds to argue.

                  So, I did the next best thing, I drove to the bookstore. Here is who I put on my "book cabinet": I got Alan Dershowitz. He's opinionated, obnoxious and at times-when he's not talking about the OJ Simpson case-he makes a good point. Let's see, let's put him in a room with... Adolf Hitler. I'd love to see those guys go at it. So next: Hitler's Mein Kampf. The something by Pope John Paul, along with Carl Sagan. I looked really hard, who else would I like to see in a room together? Hey, how about Nietzsche and Billy Graham? Yeah!

                  I thought it all made sense and was cool until I got to the checkout counter. I will never forget the look on the woman's face or her comments as she scanned the bar codes "Oh! Alan Dershowitz! That's a great book (Boop!) Okay, Pope John Paul (boop!)... and Nietzsche... interesting. (Boop!)... Adolf Hitler... Uh...(boop!) Thank you!"

                  As I saw the freakish collection of titles pass through this woman's hands I realized I was assembling the library of a serial killer! This is what Hannibal Lecter reads. I began to imagine that the FBI databanks were being alerted as to my location. "Oh, one more thing, do you have a copy of The Catcher in the Rye?"

                  Meanwhile, my quiet little friend Pat was still saying, "Glenn, if you're looking for answers I have some for you."

                  "No thanks, Pat! You Mormons are freaks!"

                  Really? Which sick freak is reading Mein Kampf?

                  First to speak on my book council was Carl Sagan, who's an atheist. He took organized religion apart, and did it very well. He talked about the power and the manipulation and the greed, and I said to myself, "Now, there's a point of view I've never really considered. I've never considered atheism. Maybe there is no God. Maybe I'll try this on." That's the kind of world I live in. I try things on. I immerse myself in things, then pick them apart from the inside.

                  So I tried on atheism. I said to God, "I don't know if you exist. I do know, however, that if you were really our 'Father in Heaven' that you would leave breadcrumbs for your children to find their way back. Why would you erase your tracks. If you exist, I will find you, because you would want me to find you."

                  My path, my spiritual journey ended up taking me to Yale. There were too many questions that I couldn't figure out without some kind of structured study.
                  Pretty big leap to make the point you guys are making...

                    Not really. It is obvious that Beck was not "worshiping" Hitler or praising his atrocities in that passage. It is also obvious that in the speech made by White House communications assistant Anne Dunn that she was not "worshiping" Chairman Mao or praising atrocities under his rule (which is what Beck devoted almost an entire show to claiming). They were simply pointing out the stupidity and hypocrisy of Beck's argument.

                    Note the first sentence of the article: "Given Glenn Beck's specious attacks on Anita Dunn's statements on Mao Zedong, it seems noteworthy that in his 2003 book, The Real America, Beck wrote..."

                          Oh, and by the way. Hitler was one of historys greatest minds. He just chose to use it for evil.

                          If you listen to what he is saying rather than pick apart a sentence you will understand his point, but that would defeat your purpose.


                          Nobody is saying that he was actually praising Hitlers atrocities or idolizing the man, but he is being a hypocrite for blasting Anne Dunn for making a similar comment in similar context about Mao.
                          And? Is this the next level above calling him a poopy head.

                              Here's an example of Faux News "misinformation":

                              Sean Hannity repeatedly ignored evidence to falsely claim that Jennings, director of the Department of Education's Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools, ignored the statutory rape of a 15-year-old student, even advancing the falsehood after the claim had been widely debunked. Fox News hosts Bill Hemmer and Bret Baier also advanced this smear. Additionally, Hannity and Fox News contributor Kirsten Powers also smeared Jennings -- who counseled someone who was of age at the time and who has said he did not have a sexual relationship -- with the outrageous suggestion that he is comparable to film director Roman Polanski, who was charged with rape and pleaded guilty to having sex with a girl who was 13 at the time after allegedly plying her with drugs and alcohol.
