No, there isn't any truth to it. The website they show is the one that the DEALERS use to access the program-related filings and whatnot, not end customers. Also, Glenn Beck is an idiot.

While I agree with Beck's political philosophy most days (libertarian), he is, frankly, a crazy nut job. Though his show is interesting to watch for the entertainment factor!
