Glenn Beck Leaving Fox News & They're Not Unhappy To See Him Go!

Thu, April 7, 2011 10:07am EST by 10 Comments

Conservative firebrand Glenn Beck is finished as a daily presence on Fox News — victim of sinking ratings, a boycott by advertisers and weariness on the part of his bosses!

Glenn Beck is done with his Fox afternoon show, and the news channel’s top man doesn’t sound too upset that the loose-cannon yakker will be gone later this year.

“Half of the headlines say he’s been canceled,” Fox News chief Roger Ailes tells the Associated Press. “The other half say he quit. We’re pretty happy with both of them.”

Even right-wingers had to admit that Glenn has become more and more erratic during his Fox run — and that scared off big advertisers. More than 400 told Fox they’d didn’t want to be associated with his show!

In the AP interview, Ailes seems to say Glenn’s act ran its course: “That story of what’s going on and why America is in trouble today, I think he told that story as well as could be told. Whether you can just keep telling that story or not … we’re not so sure.”

But Ailes dismisses the advertiser boycott and says, even in decline, Glenn’s ratings weren’t the issue: “Call CNN and MSNBC and ask them if they’d like to have Glenn’s ratings at 5 in the afternoon.”

Nothing has been set, but Fox says it plans to work with Glenn in the future — but not every day!

All of those whom Glenn Beck has been talking about for the past several years feel threatened and exposed. Who does that include? Maybe instead of listing all of those, it would be much simpler to list those we’re not talking about which are very very few. They’ve done everything they can think of to get him off the air short of killing him – which might be a little obvious. We know our President scheduled (almost)every newscast during Glenn Beck’s hour and interrupted as many of his programs as he possibly could. What does that say in itself? Wake up America! There’s only one bright spot in all of this….Glenn Beck got out alive but we should still pray for his safety.

Soros has been threatening him and the CEO of Fox News. Watch out for that “one world order” coming to a town near you America. I hope you like what you get!

I’m glad this whack job is gone, He only breeds fear and violent outbursts. FOX is not fair and balanced they are soo biased. They hate democrats and will do anything to promote republicans and Sarah Palin.

Beck’s ratings fell behind other fox news personalities but still beat out the MSMs for that time slot. He will still be working with Fox news…

I can not believe that Glenn Beck is leaving Fox or they would let him go. He is the only one, accept for Hannity, who dares to speak the truth & inform the public to what they already know is going on. This makes me sick! It shows there is no hope for this county………………….

Well… what comes around, goes around. Maybe Chris Matthews and that MSNBC bunch will experience the same. Post who the advertisers are that boycotted Beck, so we know where NOT to spend our hard earned money. Whether I agree with Beck or not is beside the point. I support his right to say it. And those organizations that pushed this need to be exposed. Let’s see who REALLY trampled the 1st amendment, although, we already know.

O’Reilly and Hannity better be careful. They may be facing the same fate. What happened to freedom of speech. This is exactly what Fox News has based there strategy on. Fair and balanced. Oh, I see balanced only if what your saying brings in the bucks. Has this country really gotten to the point where you will be silenced if you say things people don’t want to hear. SCARY!

I agree with your evaluation of Hannity but Bill O”Reilly is adamant about superficial things that are not critical by content.
