Glenn Beck Leaving His Fox News Show

Glenn Beck Fox NewsIs he even too crazy for Fox News? Linda Feldmann writes in the Christian Science Monitor:

It’s the end of an era: Glenn Beck is leaving his daily talk show on Fox News later this year, he and Fox announced Wednesday. The show, called “Glenn Beck,” had seen a precipitous decline in ratings over the last year, and Mr. Beck’s departure was not unexpected.

Not long ago, the populist rabble-rouser of the right and self-described “rodeo clown” was flying high. Beck began at Fox a little more than two years ago, in January 2009, having jumped from CNN Headline News. Coincidentally, that was right before the birth of the tea party, and he quickly became one of the movement’s leading advocates. In March 2009, he launched the successful 9-12 Project, which sought to promote patriotic values. And last August, he drew tens of thousands of people from around the country to a rally at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, called “Restoring Honor.”

But over the last year, “Glenn Beck” has lost more than a million viewers from its 5:00 p.m. show, going from an average 2.9 million in January 2010 to 1.8 million in January 2011, according to The New Republic. Beck’s radio show has been dropped in several big cities, including New York and Philadelphia. TV advertisers started fleeing, including Procter & Gamble, Coca-Cola, and Wal-Mart.

    I’m depressed, but not cause I anything other than hated Dlenn Blech…

    Know what got him kicked off? His using Nazi allegories. The reason that in calling enemies (Liberals, free thinkers) Nazis for refusing to convert to his cause in the face of his abuse/one-liners, well a certain “Ethnic Group” that owns the media got mad. They COVET their little suffering, don’t want no one else to use it.

    So, they even put up this article on how they got 10,000 complaints and got him dumped.

    Uh, didn’t MoveOn alone generate 100K against him and 1 million against Rush…

    I mean, it gets me POd. They didn’t care he was like a fictional Japanese radioactive dinosaur that drank nuclear waste and sewage and vomited it on the public group think in a one-sided media puppet show for a decade. But, he steps on their toes, bye. Don’t care who he was or the damage he helped do, but they have that kind of power and only care about their own one issue.

    Makes one a lot LESS sympathetic to them, no?
