Apparently done for a photoshoot. You have to wonder why they do not use glycerine or just water? Why all this trouble? I suspect this is the model for the show too despite what all the Glenn Beck sycophants think. Apparently phony crying on a photoshoot is OK and sincere.

Found by Anthony Fox.

    This is for a photo shoot. It’s not like he does this for his tv show where we usually see him crying. I don’t see why this is shameful.

  2. Rob says:

    Oh yeah, he used Vicks just this once to illicit tears- NEVER before. Yeah right. Glenn Beck is the dumbest, most transparent idiot on Fox News. Whatever your politics, don’t watch this guy, he is just pathetic.

  3. Atkinsp says:

    Hey I hate this guy all the way from Australia, but he is doing a photo shoot to promote something, not revving up for a session on fox. Sniping him for this only makes us haters as dopey as him, his supporters and his methods.

  4. Moose says:

    Wow… that really shitty blogging John… waaaayyy outta context

  5. Sigma says:

    Didn’t John or Adam say on No Agenda that he looked like he was a chromosome away from Autism? I guess they had not seem him cry yet huh?

  6. pcasey44 says:

    There is something seriously wrong with Glenn Beck, I fear. One of these days, Beck may have a real (not staged) nervous breakdown, stroke, or heart attack and it may happen while he’s on-the-air live. Sadly, no one will feel sorry for him. When Beck “stages” his emotions for TV, viewers eventually won’t know or care if he is serious or not.

  7. Lucas Cantor says:

    I have to disagree, as this is only a photo shoot. Nowhere in the video is it implied that this is what he does for his “show.”

  8. campbed says:

    This makes John look more of a tool than Glen Beck. Attempted out of context low blow turns into blowback on John. I expect better, leave this type of hack job to the Keith Olberman’s of the world. (Yes, Glen Beck is a tool)

  9. mcssys says:

    Isn’t your remark like one crackpot criticizing another crackpot? Besides, I listen to No Agenda and like crackpots.

  10. iditaroddog says:

    Listen again. He admits he’s done it before when he says “my eyes are getting used to it” as he pulls up his eyelids to try to get the tears flowing. He is a hate filled, sensationalist phony that takes advantage of idiots.

  11. Jason says:

    What is stupid is that of all the people out there, Beck will reply to this without any delay. John, you think you got a storm from your Vivek Kundra article, it will be bigger when aimed SOOOOOO poorly as this posting is.

    And yes, Beck is a bit of a nut no doubt, but short of his totally outrageous flamboyance, when has he been out and out deceptive? If he was, do you not believe that people like Olberman and Madow would not be just waiting in the wings to pounce like jackals!?!?!?!?!?

    For shame Dvorak…

  12. Troublemaker says:

    I despise Beck, and his agenda, with every atom of my being, but I don’t see any big deal with using artificial tears for a staged photo shoot.

    By hammering away at people, that you disagree with, over every single bit of minutiae just discredits the person making the criticism.

    Just like that completely asshole post here blaming Chicago’s lost bid for the Olympics on Obama. Even though the plans to hold them there happened long before Obama even ran for President.

    There are many things Beck could be criticized for. Why not focus on those instead?

  13. Rolf says:

    Wait, you mean that TV and media are FAKE? And people LIE on TV? Oh my god. I’m shocked.

    (Another reason why I almost don’t watch TV. I think at most 30 minutes a week.)

  14. Olo Baggins of Bywater says:

    Jason, the regular press that pays attention is all over Beck all the time. <a href="; Jon Stewart skewers him regularly.

    What #10 iditaroddog says is 100% on the mark.

    I also find it hilarious that the right wing nuts that support Dvoraks normally right leaning posts like drooling puppys are now coming at him like a frothing pit bulls because he posted something a little different.

  16. Jason says:

    iditaroddog… Grow a brain…

    Why does it have to mean that he uses it on his show?!?!?!

    Can it not equally be due to being in that photo shoot for so freaking long??? You ever BEEN to a photo shoot? They last a long freaking time even for tools like Beck…


    The last time I checked, it does not take too long and a smelly as shit bathroom that tears you up when you walk into it, stops doing so the longer you stay in the room.


  17. jescott418 says:

    I do not see the big deal? Its just a photographer trying to get a realistic image. Nothing worse then makeup. I guess they could have used a lot of natural tears too. Its not like he was trying to tell a sad story and faking tears which is what the title of the story implied.

  18. DrBillNye says:

    context context context john, and here you got me all randy for some beck drama

  19. GoNUTZ says:

    The thing people are missing, is if he’s willing to do it for a photo-shoot, how can we know he’s not willing to do it on-air.

  20. Ah_Yea says:

    Thank Olbermann, Maddow, and Shultz for Glenn Beck.

    Once the viewing public accepted straight to your face lies and bad showmanship from the left, it was only a matter of time before the right responded in kind.

  21. jbenson2 says:

    John Dvorak is falling to the same level as Uncle Dave by creating headlines that fit their agenda and not the truth.

    I think Dvorak is a bit jealous of Beck’s numbers, especially in September.

    Good post. Fully agree.

    A strong stomach is not necessary. I can watch Beck with no ill effects. O’Reilly, on the other hand. . . .

  26. clancys_daddy says:

    The more important question that I don’t see asked is this. Can I use this trick the next time some one wants me to give a sh!t? Life’s a bitch, if it was easy she’d be a slut.

  27. right says:

    This guy is a mental midget all day long. Katie nailed him with the softest questions and he folded like a cheap tent.
    Alfred “First in line for the public option” 1 loves this guy.

  28. SlvaineAlso says:

    You here with the failure to have a brain to know it’s THAT part of him that I like. He is all theatre and Dram for making his point. And hysterically capablurtizinger for it.

  29. Likes2LOL not laughing at this ... says:

    What does it say about the status of our culture when a guy like this gets paid *millions* for such behavior? Not much different than Marilyn Manson, really.

  30. RRD says:

    #26 Jim w. gives a link to a GQ article that explains the whole back story behind the video.

    It also shows Beck for the two faced whining hypocrite that is. Willing to suspend his beliefs (about the left wing photographer) as long as it gets him attention.

    Shame on you Mr. Beck
