It was so bad... in his ideas and "opinions" (his twisted misinterpretation of facts, choosing to only understand enough about a subject to support his claims but not a complete understanding such that it'll allow him to see that he is wrong)... that I couldn't bear reading the whole book. Every time I start on a new chapter about a particular topic... I end up shaking my head 2nd paragraph into it.

    I don't know what MBTI type he might be but I don't see how it'll be relevant to type him.

    Inflammatory opinions are okay so long as there's valid reasons of doing so. Glenn Beck appears to miss the mark every time by considering to only satisfying the needs of one view point, namely US white supremacy.
    I had never heard of this guy, so I can't verify any racist views.
    But considering that within human lifetime, we went from minorities still being treated almost like 3/5th human with almost no rights, to having a black president in office! So the radical conservatives, without coming out and saying it, will of course be getting louder and crazier in their disgust at political developments. (They instead come up with slogans auch as "Obama Nation", and all the other stuff about him; as well as focusing on his policies, even though many are no happier with the Republicans and had written Bush off as the same as a Democrat on "the issues").

    And 20 years ago, we thought Morton Downey Jr was bad with his whole "loundmouth" theme!

    Really manipulative ENFJ. F/T is particularly balanced. Guy's playing a role on TV, and obviously gets his rocks off on how he can make people react a certain way like clockwork.

    At the risk of starting a political argument.

    He's just trying to be unique so people watch him.
    Every media outlet uses this tactic, whether they are conservative or liberal. The "Outrage Machine" is very effective because you'll find that a large majority of people just want to be pissed off about something.

    It's also annoying to think that you're doing exactly what he wants you to do when you talk about how crazy or weird he is.

    Not in America. In America any crazed loon can get a show so it's not as discernible.

    No, I can understand him just doing it for ratings. But just doing it because he likes pissing off people on TV, If thats true I have alot more respect for him now.
