  1. Really, MDN…this has very, very little to do with Apple. Just change the colors and logo to the RNC and start advertising for them already. Two more articles or so and the app and bookmarks are gone. Stick to Apple tech, not this dimwit.

  2. Glen Bech is a raving lunatic. This is not by any stretch of the imagination MAC news! Does show once again NDN political agenda. Is this becoming a political blog?

  3. Come on MDN. Most of us are not interested in your reactionary political views. Your promotion of an idiot like Beck has ZERO to do with Apple or its products. If you want to risk driving away half or more of your audience keep this up.

  4. I hate to say it, but me too.

    Oh, and Apple should not advertise on that show, just as they now boycott some FOX time slots.

    FYI – Predrad bid his goodbyes.. He’s now registered on AI.

    MW: ‘Working’ as in…”This ain’t working for me no mo.”

  5. I’m done with mdn now. The constant prayer ads were annoying enough. But now also making a commercial for Glenn is too much. This is only about a new channel on a radio app. Nothing but propaganda. App deleted. Bookmark will be gone in a min.

    Cu guys around

  6. I am no fan of Beck either, but I look at MDN like a radio station and they need to fill dead air. Sometimes what they post is a little thin on it’s relation to mac, but there is a slight connection here nonetheless. MDN has to keep posting new items and it is a slow mac news day so they do what they have to do. If you don’t like the title of the article, then don’t click the title to read more.

  7. It’s awesome that a demagogue who bases his commentary on an alternate history of the United Staes provide by discredited religious wackos can be called a patriot. This “patriot” attacks the POTUS on a regular basis based on nothing but right wing nuttery. Does anyone remember when criticising Bush made you a traitor and a terrorist? Now you can call the Prez an illegal immigrant white people hating Nazi Commie fascist n-word, and that makes you a “patriot”. USA, your two party schizophrenia is making your country insane. When county coroners and Sheriffs and even mayors are picked on the basis of
    their politics, you have created a system ripe for abuse by malicious fscktards like Beck.
