Free speech is alive in book publishing
I received a number of tweets freaking out that I mentioned Glenn Beck in a tweet -- even though the tweet was focused on his success in writing books. I thought the tweet focused on two good points about the news story this tweet came from: 1. Free speech is alive in book publishing. We publish all points of view. 2. Books are still making money.

One person wrote: BECK - YIKES - this scares me.
Another wrote: John - that's a scary commentary.

Why does this scare people? Have they ever watched Glenn Beck's TV show? I've been watching Beck for the past few weeks, and he is one of the most reasonable people on TV or radio. I don't know how he is on his radio show, but his TV show covers a lot of history, reasonable arguments, and very few rants (some guilt by association).

I find Glenn a lot easier to listen to than Randi Rhodes, who yells at her listeners every day, cuts them off, tries to talk over them. Ed Schultz does the same thing. I like Thom Hartmann a whole lot better. And miss Ron Reagan. All four are or were radio hosts featured on KVOT (the local Taos progressive radio station).

I'm all for free speech. And I encourage anyone to listen to all points of view and not shut out people simply because they are accused of bias or extremism. Judge for yourself by really listening.
