[Game Preview] Week 1 - Atlanta Falcons (0-0) at Philadelphia Eagles(0-0)

Atlanta Falcons (0-0) at Philadelphia Eagles (0-0)
The Eagles open their first season as defending Super Bowl Champion against a team they faced on the road to their Super Bowl win. The Falcons gave the Eagles one of their toughest tests and took them down to the wire in the Eagles 15-10 win. The Eagles will once again be turning to their backup QB Nick Foles to lead them to victory as Carson Wentz continues to rehab his injured knee. Foles will look to find some of the magic that made him a Super Bowl MVP, a he struggled in his last game against the Falcons and has struggled throughout his preseason appearances this year. Foles will get some help as future Hall of Famer Jason Peters will return to watch his blindside and Swiss Army Knife Darren Sproles returns to do everything. The offense will still have a tough task, the Falcons have a fast defense that flies to the football and gets to the quarterback. On the other side of the football, the Eagles will also be shorthanded at LB where Nigel Bradham is serving his 1 game suspension for punching a cabana boy two years ago, however they do get Jordan Hicks back from a torn achilles that forced him to miss most of last season. The Eagles will also be swapping out some new faces for key contributors last including Michael Bennett for Vinny Curry, Sidney Jones for Patrick Robinson and Haloti Ngata for Beau Allen. The defense will be up to a tough task facing one of the best QBs in the league in Matt Ryan who has a plethora of weapons at his disposal including one of, if not the best receiving corps that includes Julio Jones, Mohamed Sanu and rookie first round pick Calvin Ridley. Even if the Eagles are put to the challenge of shutting down a dangerous Falcons passing attack, they will also need to deal with the 1 - 2 punch of Devonta Freemen and Tevin Coleman. NFL fans should be in for a treat because this has all the makings of a tough fought slugfest on both sides of the ball to kick off the season with Thursday Night Football.

General
Referee: John Hussey
Since 2016, Philadelphia has produced a 15-3 home record (including playoffs), which marks the best home winning percentage (.833) in the NFL in that span.
The Eagles have won 11 of their last 12 home games dating back to Week 16 of 2016. Philadelphia finished the 2017 season with a 9-1 record at Lincoln Financial Field.
In 2017, the Eagles outscored their opponents, 282-124 (+158), over 10 regular-season and postseason games at Lincoln Financial Field. Philadelphia’s 229 points scored at home during the regular season marked the 4th-highest single-season mark in team history and the Eagles’ most since the 2014 campaign (franchise-record 261).
Philadelphia is aiming to win its third consecutive season opener (9/11/16: W, 29-10 vs. Cle.; 9/10/17: W, 30-17 at Was.), which would tie for the 3rd- longest streak in franchise history (1st: 6 from 1942-47; 2nd: 4 from 2011-14).
Doug Pederson can become just the fourth head coach in Eagles history to win three straight opening day games, joining Rich Kotite(3, 1991-93), Dick Vermeil (3, 1979-81) and Greasy Neale (6, 1942-47).
Philadelphia has won each of its last two home openers (9/11/16: W, 29-10 vs. Cle.; 9/24/17: W, 27-24 vs. NYG) and can tie for the 2nd-longest streak in team history with a win on Thursday night (1st: 5 from 1945-49). Pederson can join Joe Kuharich (4, 1964-67) as the only Eagles head coaches to win their first three home openers with the team.
Doug Pederson became the eighth head coach in NFL history to win the Super Bowl in their first two seasons as a head coach (first since Mike Tomlin in 2008).
Pederson also became the seventh head coach in NFL history to win the Super Bowl in his first playoff run as a head coach (first since Brian Billick in 2000).
Pederson became just the fourth head coach in NFL history to win the Super Bowl following a sub-.500 record the previous season, joining Bill Belichick (2001 Patriots), Dick Vermeil (1999 Rams) and Bill Walsh (1981 49ers).

Matchups to Watch
Nick Foles vs Falcons Pass Defense
All eyes should be on the Eagles Week 1 starter for the opener. Coming off an excellent playoff run culminating in a Super Bowl MVP award, Nick Foles takes the helm as Carson Wentz continues his rehab. What Foles has shown in his career are incredible highs and incredible lows; this includes a relatively shaky preseason where Doug Pederson went the disappointed father route when discussing Foles poor play against the Browns a couple of weeks ago. It's important not to take too much away from the preseason since the coaching staff isn't game-planning extensively like they will for this matchup while also missing several offensive starters. Entering week 1 the Eagles will still be down one starter in Alshon Jeffery and another offensive contributor in Mack Hollins. Even with the benefit of preparation, the Falcons are one of the best teams in the NFL and tend to suffocate opponents against the pass. The Seattle-style defense is flush with high-end athletes that prevent a lot of big plays. Doug Pederson is 2-0 vs the Falcons as the Eagles Head Coach and in those 2 games the Eagles have 0 passing TDs. Foles was pretty decent against the Falcons in the playoffs and I think needs to be more consistently good in this one to keep the offense on schedule. This will be a a difficult task without Jeffery and some new pieces to work into the offense. Even with the capable backs the Eagles possess, they only averaged 3 yards per carry against the Falcons in the playoffs on 32 carries. In order for the offenses to be more efficient the passing game needs be good early and often. They cannot afford to put themselves in situations where they have to chase the Falcons through the air.
Eagles Secondary vs. Falcons Passing Attack
The Falcons have a plethora of weapons to contend with on the offensive side of the ball that can make life difficult for the Eagles defense. Everyone knows Julio Jones is a monster and has shredded the Eagles secondary in his last 3 games against Philly. Julio probably should perform this way; he is an elite talent and the Eagles haven't had a strong secondary. What has helped the Eagles in the last two outings against the Falcons is limiting the damage done by the supporting cast. Sanu is a good number 2 receiver and a reliable passing option to keep the offense on schedule. The addition of first round rookie Calvin Ridley can also help the offense be more explosive than it was in 2017. There will be an adjustment for Ridley to the pro game but he is already a very good route runner with good speed that is an upgrade over what they had previously. Austin Hooper is a reliable, if unexciting tight end option as well and helps make the offense efficient much like Sanu. Lastly, Freeman and Coleman are one of the best RB pairings in football and also excellent in the passing game. While it'll be important for the Eagles stingy run defense to continue to control the line of scrimmage, the Falcons offense has a number of very good weapons for Matt Ryan to use in the passing game. It'll be up to the Eagles young and ascending secondary to take a step forward early in the season. The Eagles also need Jordan Hicks to return to form in a hurry as Nigel Bradham serves his one game suspension.
Eagles Offensive & Defensive Line vs Falcons Offensive & Defensive Line
The battles that will have the greatest influence on the game, especially for the Eagles, is along the trenches. The Eagles enter the season with their OL 100% healthy as Peters makes his return to left tackle. One thing the Eagles haven't had in their 2 matchups against the Falcons under Doug Pederson is OL continuity. Lane Johnson was suspended for the 2016 meeting and Jason Peters was on injured reserve for the playoff match up. The addition of Peters back into the line up is big for the Eagles as they are incorporating some new pieces into the offense while missing Jeffery. The Falcons have a young, fast, and aggressive DL that can cause problems for opposing offenses. Even without Peters, the Eagles finished as PFFs best offensive line in 2017 and will look to maintain their status as one of the best units in the league. Both tackles are more than capable of erasing the EDGE defenders the Falcons have to go along with an All-Pro caliber Guard in Brandon Brooks and All-Pro Center Jason Kelce. While Wisniewski doesn't share in the same accolades as his other linemen, he is a very reliable LG in his own right. Controlling the line of scrimmage and keeping Foles clean will make a big difference for the Eagles in this contest. On the flip-side, the Eagles moved on from Vinny Curry and Beau Allen this offseason but upgraded both spots with veterans Michael Bennett and Haloti Ngata. Both players serve as strong run defenders with greater potential as pass rushers than their predecessors. Chris Long, Brandon Graham, Fletcher Cox, and Derek Barnett all return to form the deepest and most disruptive defensive line in football. While the Falcons possess quality tackles, the amount of bodies the Eagles can throw at opposing offensive lines can be game changing. Alex Mack is an All-Pro Center but is surrounded by some question marks at guard. While the Eagles certainly lack some proven depth along the interior defensive line in the absence of Timmy Jernigan, there are still plenty of high quality rushers for the Falcons to contend with. Without Nigel Bradham and Jordan Hicks returning from IR, the defensive line needs to establish dominance for the Eagles to control this game.

[Game Preview] Playoff Edition Divional Round - Atlanta Falcons (11-6) at Philadelphia Eagles(13-3)

Atlanta Falcons (11-6) at Philadelphia Eagles (13-2)
After earning a first round bye the Eagles head into their divisional round game against the Atlanta Falcons as 2.5 point underdogs despite being the number 1 seed and playing at home. Much of this is because the Eagles are replacing second team All-Pro Carson Wentz with backup Nick Foles who struggled in the final two games of the season. This will not be Foles's first playoff game though, as a starter for the Eagles in 2013 where he was 23-of-33 passing for 195 yards and two touchdowns and led a potential game winning drive to take the lead with 4 minutes left before the Saints marched back with a last second field goal. The Eagles also still boast a top 5 defense in points and total offense and the number one defense against the run. The team will be rested and look to prove those in Vegas wrong when they come out at home on Saturday where they went 7-1 this season with the one lost coming while the starters rested. The matchup won't be easy though, the Atlanta Falcons have been hot of late and winning 7 of 9 down the stretch and only allowing 17.4 points a game in that span. Atlanta's high powered offense took a step back this season with the loss of Kyle Shanahan, but Matt Ryan can still sling and it and he still has one of the best WRs in football in Julio Jones on the outside. Jones had 10 receptions for 135 yards in the last meeting between the teams, last season, but the rest of the Falcons offense was largely shutdown in the Eagle win. The Eagles may look to take a page out of the playbook from that game last season where they rushed the ball 38 times for 208 yards and dominated time of possession 38:10 to the Falcons 21:50. Jay Ajayi could be key as he rushed for 130 yards on 26 carries against the Falcons earlier this season when he was on the Dolphins. If the Eagles can run the ball successfully against the Falcons it will go a long way in getting a win on Saturday especially if the defense can play up to their potential and get pressure on Matt Ryan.

Stats to Know
Ryan Under Pressure
In 2017, when under pressure, Falcons QB Matt Ryan has been both sacked 4th-lowest (% of pressured dropbacks) and has suffered the 2nd-most drop (11). In the pocket, Ryan has spent about an equal percentage of dropbacks under 2.5 seconds as he has over 2.5. His average time to sack, though, is 6th-fastest, which I suppose shouldn't be a surprise, given the piss-poor play Atlanta's been getting from its Guards, with Levitre out. G Ben Garland has allowed the highest percentage of pressures per pass blocking snap of all Guards, at 9.34%. In the Wildcard matchup against the Rams--Aaron Donald is an outright beast--that number was a whopping 20% (7 pressures on 35 PB snaps). The Guard with the next-highest pressure letup percentage was Atlanta's other Guard, Wes Schweitzer, at 11.34%. You can bet your bottom dollar that the Eagles' DIs are chomping at the bit.--Courtesy of PFF Elite
Matchups to Watch
Nick Foles vs Falcons Defense
The “easiest” way to win in the NFL is with a franchise QB. In Nick Foles career, he’s had 14 starts with a passer rating better than 100 and 16 starts with a passer rating lower than 80. He’s had only nine starts with a passer rating between 80 and 100. This kind of inconsistency has plagued Foles in his career but it does show that he is a capable QB. This will be his second postseason start against a very good secondary in Atlanta. According to Pro Football Focus, the Falcons have two cornerbacks ranked in the top 25 in the NFL. Their best corner, Desmond Trufant, is ranked 17 by PFF. He was on injured reserve last year when the Eagles beat the Falcons in Philadelphia. Opposite Trufant is Robert Alford, who largely stays at RCB. The Falcons also have a quality slot corner in Brian Poole. This is a very athletic group that plays disciplined football. The Falcons also have Keanu Neal who is emerging as a top end safety in the NFL. The Falcons defensive scheme is basically the Seahawks defensive scheme. In pass defense, they look to take away the big plays and force opposing offenses to methodically move down the field. They are ranked 22nd overall per DVOA and 19th vs the pass. The Falcons defense has improved over the last season and has helped carry the offense. Nick Foles will need to be able to make plays in the passing game since the Falcons will be looking to take away the run.
Eagles Defensive Line vs. Falcons Offensive Line
Without Carson Wentz, the strength of the Eagles team is along the defensive line, one of the best if not the best in the NFL. The Eagles will need every one of their players to help wreck the Falcons offensive game plan, especially Fletcher Cox and Brandon Graham. At tackle, the Falcons start Ryan Schraeder and Jake Matthews who both ranked as PFFs top 25 tackles – 21st and 15th respectively. Brandon Graham, Vinny Curry, Derek Barnett, and Chris Long need to step up and put pressure on Matt Ryan while remaining good run defenders. The Falcons offense features a number of really good weapons but their offensive line isn’t among the tops in the game. The Falcons also feature 2 poor guards in Wes Schweitzer and Ben Garland. Andy Levitre is a pretty solid guard in his own right but went on IR in week 17. Everyone has watched Aaron Donald sodomize the Falcons interior line last week but the Falcons were able to overcome it. While Fletcher Cox isn’t as good as Aaron Donald, he’s pretty close. Additionally, the Eagles defensive line is a much deeper and more disruptive group than the Rams unit. Timmy Jernigan has been sluggish of late but he has also been banged up. He is now well rested. The Eagles will also look to shift Brandon Graham inside from time to time to take advantage of his quickness against guards. Alex Mack is a great center for the Falcons and one of the best at the position in the game but cannot carry the interior line on his own. The Eagles have a defensive line that is deeper and more talented than almost every team in the NFL and it needs to perform that way for the Eagles to win this weekend. Pressure up front can ruin games and the Eagles defensive line is more than capable to Rise Up for this occasion.
Eagles Offensive Line vs Falcons Defensive Front
Even without the Hall of Famer Jason Peters the Eagles still have one of the best offensive lines in the NFL. Lane Johnson and Jason Kelce we selected as first team All Pro’s this year and will go up against a pretty good Atlanta defensive line. Lane Johnson is the best right tackle in the NFL and will take a lot of snaps opposite Vic Beasley who is having a down season after sacking much of the league last year. The Falcons defensive line is very athletic but somewhat undersized and can be bullied off the line of scrimmage but punishing offensive lines like the Eagles. We even saw that last year when the Eagles ran all over the Falcons last year when they beat them at the Linc. The Falcons best defensive lineman is Grady Jarrett and is very disruptive along the defensive interior. Nick Foles does need to get better but the offensive line can help make things a lot easier for him if they are able to open up running lanes like they did against the Falcons last year while they keep him on his feet. Jason Kelce finished as PFFs top ranked center on the season while guards Brandon Brooks and Stefen Wisniewski finished as the 4th and 29th best guards per PFF on the season. Wis was banged up at the end of the season but did play meaningful snaps in week 17 and is ready for the playoffs. Big V has been up and down at left tackle for the Eagles since taking over for Jason Peters but has proven to at least be a quality option a number of teams don’t have. This unit is strong in pass and run protection and will need to continue to be strong in both areas. The Falcons make it a priority to stop opposing rushing attacks and routinely stack the box to do so. Their excellent secondary really allows the Falcons to attack the lines of opposing offenses especially with the excellent LB Deion Jones. On the season Deion Jones finished as PFFs 5th rated LB and is one of the best LBs in the NFL in coverage. According to PFF, Jones isn’t quite as good in run support but is more than athletic enough to make plays for the Falcons defense. The Eagles offensive line has a good opportunity on their hands vs a decent defensive front for the Falcons in a positional match up that does favor them.
Falcons Play-makers vs Eagles Defense
The Falcons possess one of the best rushing tandems in the NFL in Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman. While the two backs aren’t the same style of runner they are both very good and very explosive game-changing backs. Additionally, both of these backs are excellent as receivers out of the backfield and will really stress the Eagles linebacking group as the game unfolds. It’s no secret the Falcons offense looks to feed these two backs and when they are running wild they open up the entire offense. Oh, and the Falcons have Julio Jones. He’s pretty good. Julio Jones remains one of the best players in the NFL even with the low TD numbers. In their game last year, Jones had double digit catches and over 100 yards receiving. It felt like a minor miracle despite his outstanding performance. The Eagles secondary is vastly improved from last year but that doesn’t mean much with Julio since he has proven to be a match up nightmare for everyone he faces. While Mohammed Sanu and Austin Hooper aren’t big names they are solid and efficient pass catchers for the Falcons. The Falcons offense isn’t nearly as explosive as it was last season but still has the talent in all areas to take the top off the game if the Eagles defense isn’t able to account for them. The defensive line needs to win its battles up front to shut the running backs down forcing the Falcons into more difficult 3rd down situations. They need to be sure tacklers and play disciplined through the air. It would be shocking to find out Julio Jones wasn’t excited for the opportunity to execute one of his double moves. Matt Ryan hasn’t been as electric as last season but has still been quite good for the Falcons this year. The Eagles will need to force Matt Ryan in to difficult situations and prevent him from picking them apart. The Falcons are a tough and resilient bunch; they will be in this game throughout. Big plays will be the difference. The Eagles defense needs to ensure they aren’t the ones allowing them.

[Updated] A (so far) complete timeline of the investigation into Trump and Russia by Philip Bump of the Washington Post

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/politics/wp/2018/02/05/a-so-far-complete-timeline-of-the-investigation-into-trump-and-russia/
https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/347191326112112640

Before the election

January 2013
Energy industry consultant Carter Page meets a man named Victor Podobnyy at a conference in New York and begins sharing with him “basic immaterial information and publicly available research documents” (in Page’s words). Podobnyy was an officer with Russia’s foreign intelligence service and is later charged with being an agent of the Russian government.
June 2013
The FBI interviews Page after Podobnyy is recorded by U.S. intelligence officials identifying Page as a possible target for recruitment. “It’s obvious that he wants to earn lots of money,” Podobnyy says of Page.
Aug. 25, 2013
In a letter sent to a publisher making the case for his expertise on Russia, Page writes, “Over the past half year, I have had the privilege to serve as an informal advisor to the staff of the Kremlin in preparation for their Presidency of the G-20 Summit next month, where energy issues will be a prominent point on the agenda.”
Sept. 4, 2013
James B. Comey becomes director of the FBI, succeeding Robert S. Mueller III.
Nov. 9, 2013
The Miss Universe pageant, at this point part of the Trump Organization, is held in Moscow. The event’s location was secured thanks to licensing fees of nearly $20 million paid by a Moscow real estate development firm called the Crocus Group. Its president is a man named Aras Agalarov. Agalarov’s son, Emin, is a vice president of Crocus Group and a pop singer.
May 2014
Russians working for a group called the Internet Research Agency begin their efforts to meddle in the election and American politics more broadly.
June 4-26, 2014
Two Internet Research Agency employees travel around the United States to collect intelligence. Stops include “Nevada, California, New Mexico, Colorado, Illinois, Michigan, Louisiana, Texas, and New York,” according to an indictment released in Feb. 2018.
Nov. 26-30, 2014
Another Internet Research Agency employee travels to Atlanta.
April 2015
Former Defense Intelligence Agency head Michael Flynn begins advising ACU Strategic Partners, a company that seeks to build nuclear power plants in the Middle East in partnership with a sanctioned Russian company.
June 16, 2015
Donald Trump announces his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination.
July 24, 2015
Rob Goldstone, publicist for Emin Agalarov, emails Trump’s assistant to offer to set up a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. There’s no indication the Trump team explored the offer.
Summer 2015
Hackers believed to be linked to the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) gain access to the network of the Democratic National Committee, according to U.S. intelligence agencies.
September 2015
An associate of Trump’s named Felix Sater reaches out to the Trump Organization about a proposed development project in Moscow. It is to be financed by Russia’s government-owned bank Vnesheconombank, which was being sanctioned by the U.S. government. Trump at some point signs a letter of intent to move forward with the project.
Autumn 2015
The conservative website the Washington Free Beacon hires a firm called Fusion GPS to conduct research on several Republican presidential candidates, including Trump.
Nov. 3, 2015
Sater emails Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen to outline his idea of having a Moscow ribbon cutting that Putin would attend. “I will get Putin on this program and we will get Donald elected,” Sater writes.
Dec. 8, 2015
A delegation from the National Rifle Association arrives in Moscow to meet with supporters of a gun-rights organization there. One of their hosts is Alexander Torshin, a deputy at the Russian central bank and lifetime member of the NRA.
Dec. 10, 2015
Flynn is part of a panel discussion in Moscow for the 10th anniversary of the government-backed media outlet Russia Today, for which he is paid. At a dinner, he sits at a table with Putin. Officials notice an increase in communication between Flynn and the Russian ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak, following the Russia Today event.
Late 2015
British intelligence agencies detect suspicious interactions between Russia and Trump aides that they pass on to U.S. intelligence agencies.
Mid-January 2016
Cohen emails Putin’s personal spokesman seeking help in advancing the proposed development in Moscow. “As this project is too important, I am hereby requesting your assistance. I respectfully request someone, preferably you, contact me so that I might discuss the specifics as well as arranging meetings with the appropriate individuals. I thank you in advance for your assistance and look forward to hearing from you soon,” he writes.
Jan. 29, 2016
Goldstone emails Donald Trump Jr. to pitch the Trump team on setting up a page on Russian social media site Vkontakte. Trump Jr. passes it on to Dan Scavino, the person in charge of Trump’s social media. “Please feel free to send me whatever you have,” Scavino replies. Konstantin Sidorkov, director of partnership marketing for Vkontakte, follows up a few days later. “Nice to meet you and your team,” he writes in an email to Scavino, Trump Jr. and Trump’s assistant.
Late January 2016
The Moscow development is abandoned.
Feb. 1, 2016
Republican primary voting begins in Iowa.
March 2016
Russian hackers begin targeting infrastructure systems inside the U.S.
March 6, 2016
George Papadopoulos is named a foreign-policy adviser by the campaign.
March 14, 2016
Papadopoulos meets in Italy with a London-based professor named Joseph Mifsud, director of the London Academy of Diplomacy. Until he learns that Papadopoulos is tied to the Trump campaign, Mifsud is uninterested in talking.
March 19, 2016
Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta is sent an email that encourages him to change his email password, probably precipitating the hack of his account.
March 21, 2016
During an interview with The Washington Post, Trump lists Page as part of his foreign-policy team. Page had been recommended by a son-in-law of President Richard Nixon, New York Republican Party Chairman Ed Cox. Trump also mentions Papadopoulos.
At some point during the spring, long-time Trump confidante Roger Stone tells an associate that he had spoken with Assange and learned about emails WikiLeaks possessed that would be problematic for Democrats, including Podesta.
March 28, 2016
Political veteran Paul Manafort is hired to help the Trump campaign manage the delegate process for the Republican National Convention. He is recommended by Stone. Before joining the campaign, Manafort lobbied on behalf of Oleg Deripaska, a Putin ally. That business relationship followed a memo from Manafort in which he offered a plan that could “greatly benefit the Putin Government.” His business relationship with Deripaska ended in 2009. Manafort also worked on behalf of the Russia-friendly Party of Regions in Ukraine, helping guide the party’s leader, Viktor Yanukovych, to the country’s presidency. Yanukovych was later ousted.

I got an accidental email from a nut supporting Glen Beck. How should I troll everyone he emailed?

I got a random email from some nut in Ohio where he attempts to defend Glen Beck's lunacy. How should

I respond to everyone on his email list?

I am thinking I might just respond a few clips of him saying his usual batshit crazy stuff. Any ideas for a more effective counter argument or outright troll?

Below is an article on Glenn Beck who recently has had a great loss in sponsorship due to comments he made about the president. I believe that freedom of speech is a very important liberty that we as all Americans find very near and dear to our hearts as it was one of the freedoms that our forefathers were willing to lay their lives down for. Usually it is the left side that is crying about their right to freedom of speech more loudly than anyone else, except in this case when it is inconvenient for them. Please read the article below (especially the highlighted area) and determine for yourself if Beck should be considered an American Patriot for exposing the President or not.
Also attached is a letter written by my attorney to several of the sponsors who have now abandoned Beck. Please forward to all our your family and friends.
Respectfully yours,
Random Idiot
American & Proud Ohioan
So, the number of corporate sponsors that have pulled their advertising dollars from The Glenn Beck Program grew to 20 on Tuesday. Walmart, Best Buy and Travelocity joined the list of companies that, depending on your point of view, should be classified as either responsible corporate citizens or easily bullied cowards.
The statements of the corporations themselves tend to confirm the second option. But first the background:
Glenn Beck is a conservative commentator whose television show airs at 5 p.m. daily Eastern Time on the Fox News Channel, where it attracts an enormous (for cable, at that hour) audience of some 2.3 million souls. His audience has exploded this year, apparently riding a tide of conservative resentment over the poor economy, the supposedly liberal media, and Democratic Party control in Washington .
"You are not alone," Beck tells his viewers. Millions of people like to hear such assurances, even when coming from a polished performer whose histrionics are obvious. Beck doesn't mind crying on the air. His soliloquies range in tone from rants to raves, often spiced with a dash of paranoia. Recent Beck-isms include a claim that the U.S. Mercury dime has a secret fascist symbol on it, that FEMA was secretly setting up concentration camps ( Beck actually went out of his way to disprove this rumor. Thanks to Bob, Carol , Virginia and many others for pointing this out), that global warming is fiction, and that a single-payer health care system is the first step to a society being forced to "goose-step."
Earlier this year, Beck compared himself in an interview with The New York Times to Howard Beale, the unglued anchorman in the 1976 classic movie, "Network." Beale was famous for saying that he was "mad as hell" and wasn't going to take it anymore. But Beck's persona has a quite un-mad aspect to it. As it happens, driving progressive Democrats cuckoo is quite profitable – and fairly easy to do these days. In that same interview with The Times, Beck volunteered that he is like a "rodeo clown," dancing in front of the (liberal) bulls and broncos for the audience's entertainment.
His Web site advertises Beck as The Fusion of Entertainment and Enlightenment. Human Lightning Rod is more like it. But all of his past comments put together do not equal the furor Beck ignited on July 28, when he accused President Obama of being "a racist." Here is how it went down: Beck and his guest panelists were discussing the controversial arrest of Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. – and Obama's ill-fated comments regarding said arrest. That's when Beck began channeling his inner rodeo clown.
Beck: "This president, I think, has exposed himself as a guy, over and over and over again, who has a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture, I don't know what it is . . ."
At that point, Fox News's Brian Kilmeade interjects, pointing out that many of Obama's closest White House advisers are white (he doesn't mention Obama's own mother). "You can't say he doesn't like white people . . ."
Unfazed, Beck replies: "I'm not saying he doesn't like white people. I'm saying he has a problem. This guy is, I believe, a racist."
To a group called ColorofChange.org, this wasn't entertainment, it was hate speech. ColorofChange.org is an online membership organization that exists, according to its mission statement, "to strengthen Black America's political voice."
The group was founded by Van Jones, who left in 2007 for another activist organization, Green for All, and who now works in the Obama administration as a top adviser on "green" jobs at the White House Council on Environmental Quality. Jones' replacement at ColorofChange.org is James Rucker, and he quickly concluded after the Obama-is-a-racist comment that Glenn Beck is an impediment to his organization's objectives and should be removed from the airwaves. His weapon of choice: An e-mail campaign by ColorofChange.org members to advertising agencies and corporate sponsors that advertise on Fox News during the daily Beck hour.
Beck's commentary, Rucker declared, was "repulsive, divisive, and shouldn't be on the air." His effort has met with surprising success. The list of companies that agreed includes Geico, CVS, Men's Wearhouse, Radio Shack, Procter & Gamble, and State Farm Insurance. This is a little strange, even granting Rucker's description of Beck's language being "repulsive" and "divisive." Heck, let's add "witless" and "obviously inaccurate" to the litany. But the phrase "shouldn't be on the air," well now, that is really raising the stakes to the point that we are playing a different kind of game here. So let's also call this burgeoning secondary boycott for what it is: attempted censorship.
"We are heartened to see so many corporate citizens step up in support of our campaign against Glenn Beck," said Rucker, executive director of ColorOfChange.org. "Their action sends a clear a message to Glenn Beck: Broadcasters shouldn't abuse the privilege they enjoy by spewing dangerous and racially charged hate language over the air. No matter their political affiliation, hate language doesn't belong in our national dialogue."
Leaving aside the dated notion that free expression over the airwaves is a "privilege," the problem here is that the outrage against playing the race card in politics is selective. Is it not also repulsive and divisive when Keith Olbermann invites an angry actress named Janeane Garafalo on his show to dismiss conservative protestors as "a bunch of racists?" As Olbermann mumbles audible sounds of encouragement, Garafalo adds: "Let's be very honest about what this is about . . .This is about hating a black man in the White House. This is racism straight up. This is nothing but a bunch of tea-bagging rednecks."
If you don't remember ColorofChange.org's boycott against Olbermann and NBC, that's because it never happened. Good thing, too, because you can bet some of these cringing companies would have been susceptible to that as well.
"We have instructed our advertising agency to inform Fox to ensure Glenn Beck's program is not part of our advertising plan," Carolyn Castel, a vice president for corporate communications at CVS, one of the 20 Beck boycotters, said in an e-mail to ColorofChange.org. "Our position is simple. We support vigorous debate, especially around policy issues that affect millions of Americans, but we expect it to be informed, inclusive and respectful, in keeping with our company's core values and commitment to diversity."
Really? By that logic, CVS wouldn't be able to advertise on most of the shows on cable television. (Rite Aid, I sense an opening!) But seriously, since when did it become some corporate suit's prerogative to make sure that political discourse on talk shows is politically correct? Are we heading into an era of "red" corporations and "blue" corporations? Travelocity for Democrats and Orbitz for Republicans? (Would James Carville and Mary Matalin even end up on the same flights?)
Many moons ago, I covered a Senate race in which a black North Carolina Democrat named Harvey Gantt tried to unseat Jesse Helms, a white Republican with a deeply conservative record – and one not terribly enlightened on race. Some of the state's Democrats privately urged home state basketball star Michael Jordan to endorse Gantt and maybe even make a television spot. The great symbol of Nike shoes declined, and in doing so, sent word to the Gantt emissaries to the effect that "Republicans buy shoes, too."
At the time, I found Jordan 's self-imposed neutrality to be crass. I may have misjudged the man. In his view that corporate profits and politics don't mix, Jordan seems to have been was ahead of his time. Finally, let's contemplate for a moment the likely effects of this Glenn Beck boycott:
(1) More attention, and thus, possibly more viewers for Glenn Beck.
(2) A sympathy backlash (like this column) from people who normally wouldn't dream of defending Glenn Beck, but who will almost always defend free speech.
(3) A backlash boycott against Olbermann, or whomever, on the part of angered conservatives.
(4) The spreading perception that some liberals are often willing to employ tactics that are quite illiberal when it comes to those with whom they disagree.
(5) More opportunity on Beck's show for him to spew goofy opinions, precisely because the advertisers have fled, leaving him with more time to fill.
