James Cameron Doesn't Think Much of Fox News' Glenn Beck

Glenn BeckActually, that's putting it mildly. James Cameron probably has a higher opinion of mosquito bites because as Ned Flanders once put it, "They sure are fun to scratch."

Cameron had a sit down with Hollywood Reporter reporter Alex Ben Block for the DVD release of his Oscar nominated film 'Avatar' and the two somehow got to talking about global warming and the pandemic of people on both sides of the aisles.

This segued into that all-important political topic of Glenn Beck, prompting Cameron to call him a "[BLANK]ing [BLANK]hole," only he didn't say "blank." Use your imagination.

THR has posted audio of the reporter's interview with Cameron and it's quite shocking. I mean, someone out there is still using cassette tapes in the digital age?!?

It goes without saying that some of our more sensitive viewers might find some of Cameron's choice of language offensive. So if you're one of those people, either don't listen to it or use this handy "Censored" soundboard to block out some of Cameron's naughtier words.

Glenn Beck calls it as he sees it . As do most conservatives on TV . Like the liberals say...if you dont like what you're watching...change the channel.

Beck is just as bad of a representation for a majority of Republicans the same way Bill Maher is a poor representation for most Democrats. Both are arrogant, uneducated, bigoted and attention seeking.

If you ever watched Beck, you'd know he's not a Republican. He's an independent conservative. Unfortunately these days, Maher is indeed representative of the progressively liberal Democrats, including elected officials, who have called peaceful protesters vile names and resorted to playing the race card when we don't fall into lockstep with them (like Pelosi, Lewis & Cleaver). I'm sure Glenn just can't sleep knowing an anti-military, global-warming propagandist doesn't like him.

Someone saying that Bill Maher is "a poor representation for most Democrats" is a bit silly. First off, he's NOT even a Democrat... just a very liberally minded individual who happens to side with them more than the Republicans but openly calls the Dems out to be the weak, tail-between-their-legs career politicians that most of them are. As for "uneducated" he's got a degree in English from Cornell University. I'll give you the arrogance and attention seeking comments, although it's a completely moot point as most politically minded comedians/television show hosts are exactly that. So that's like saying Sally the cheerleader shouts obnoxiously and jumps a lot. Wow, what a shock.

As far as the rest of the discussion on this page goes, I've never really understood the faux outrage at "hollywood liberals". Everyone has their own opinions and when random people on the street are interviewed for theirs, you get a lot of fiery nasty comments on different topics and persons, whether they have expertise in them or not... so why should it be any different for celebrities? It's your right to express your opinion and exert your freedom of speech... celebrities have the same right; they just happen to have a bigger stage and more ears listening to do so. So what's the big deal? They're "forcing" their opinion on you about as much as random idiots at your job are. Getting discontent about any group of people simply airing their passions makes little sense if they aren't hurting anyone. Perhaps I should rail against "Mainstreet America 9-5ers and their jingoistic, predictable blabbering on."

And yes, Beck is about as insightful as the Ricky Gervais show. He's a pompass windbag and so is Maher, but at least Maher admits he's a smug comedian and not some voice of the masses oppressed by the Communist Czar Obama. Beck is a looney tune, plain and simple, and so are his followers and anyone else who thinks Obama dislikes white people, lol. (That Beck comment was a riot). He's particularly hilarious when he misspells things on national television on his little crazy board too. Proving that he's full of it is like someone asking you to explain the Bible rationally - it's an open and shut case.

@MSBNYY
Glenn Beck is just as much of an "entertainer" as Cameron is. Therefore Cameron has every right to comment on a member of his profession.

Who really cares about Cameron's politics? I can't stand it when Hollywood liberals shove their views down our throats. The political preaching ruined Avatar for me. I don't care what he thinks about Glenn Beck, George Bush, Barrack Obama or anyone else. He's an entertainer, nothing more.

Isn't it pretty commonly accepted that Beck is a hate mongering joke? Sure, some people might find him entertaining. Some people also find Dimitri Martin entertaining as well. When this dude is brought up I usually shake my head and move on. He's like the crazy guy jacking off on a bus, you try to ignore him and keep your distance.

You'll read elsewhere that Cameron bitched out Beck 3 different times, but always from the safe confines of a salon on the Upper East Side or some such, and always with a coterie of yes-men to tell him how brave he is for pushing up on his hind legs and squeaking at Beck.
Cameron is a nancy boy, end of discussion.

I'm guessing at this point Beck is laughing all the way to the bank with all the attention liberals give him. He probably loves being their lightning rod. His TV show got 3.5 viewers on March 22 completely destroying the offerings from his liberal competition. Nobody cares what Cameron has to say outside of Hollywood's liberal elite. Interesting that liberals have to resort to silly things like name calling and insults in lieu of facts and reason. Beck begs people to call him out on anything that he gets wrong. But liberals resort to dismissing him as a kook or call him names. It's really quite sad and pathetic.

Beck is, and always has been, a clown. An ugly clown at that. When are you right-wingers going to realize that Beck's job is to get viewers, and he doesn't care how he does it. His "outrage" is as fake as his "facts". He keeps escalating his craziness to keep you watching.

If you would be more specific in what facts are fake in your assessment of Beck, your accusation would be more impressive.

Well said, Jim. Beck was always an asshole from the beginning. Hell, he even looks like a sherm headed nazi.
