And what would be your empirical evidence to back up that absolute statement? Anecdotal quip is not evidence of anything other than maybe you seeing what you wish to see.People are prone to being awestruck. Just as many intelligent liberals think of Obama as the second coming, many of those who like and listen to Beck seem to take his every word as gospel.
Time and posting will tell in that regard. Many on boards like this seem to mask their true leanings by fraudulent leaning tags. But welcome, and I look forward to debating you.And for the record, I am far from being a liberal. I am an independent thinker, and disillusioned by those who make strive and unrest a career, politicians and talking heads alike.
That aside, and not being one who pays too much attention to tv shows, why did Beck leave his program on Fox?
His fans seemed to be under the impression he would be creating a different venue of sorts," aiming for greater things" (their words, not mine).
Well, I don't work for Fox News so I wouldn't be able to say with absolute certainty. But the indication is that he felt that the show on Fox had run its course, and he wanted to move on to do other things. Now, partisans will read into that something different, but be warned that is speculation, and most likely wrong, and designed to lead you.That aside, and not being one who pays too much attention to tv shows, why did Beck leave his program on Fox?
there is support for that.His fans seemed to be under the impression he would be creating a different venue of sorts," aiming for greater things" (their words, not mine).

I love the smell of face-palm in the morning!
"You ain't no Muslim bruv!"
I get made fun of all the time here and other places for this, but I believe Glenn Beck is absolutely genuine and believes everything he says. I believe he's passionate about helping people and wants this country to be great again. Does he say some things sometimes that make me facepalm? Of course. He's bound to when he's ad libbing 3 hours on his radio show every single day. But overall, I believe he's a good man with good intentions.
Go ahead and mock me. I care not.
Should he succeed with his new venture, good for him. If not, its what free market is all about.
Many people feel a calling of sorts, and if this is his, he must do what he feels is right.
Time will tell how right he is.
If I may give an example, Ron Paul and his supporters have been mocked for many years, just as we find out now that the dear man has been right all along, and many repeat what he has been saying for years.
History will tell the tale, eventually.
