    Do you actually think that because liberals despise Beck that Fox will dump their hottest asset? Roger Ailes is one of the wiliest cats in the TV industry today. All they've tried to do is tone him done a notch or two when he strays off their reservation. Have you heard of or been here yet:
    The Blaze
    The same broad that built up Ariana's Huff 'n Puff Post is working now for Beck. The guy did over $30Mill for himself last year. And you think he's ready for a sailing trip into the sunset. Wishful liberal thinking. That's why we say liberalism is a mental disease. It's irrational at best and psychotic at worst, but you keep on keepin' on...God love ya!
    (Sorry! Forgot you libs are not much for God. Didn't mean to offend you.)
    Liberals are always in intellectual denial of reality, blinded by hate-filled emotion. Beck, whom I've stopped watching and had only watched intermittently, is a person who hit bottom, came back and had a religious epiphany in his life. With people like that what you see is what you get. He wears his emotion on his sleeve and has slowly let it get the best of his discretion at times. He wants to believe he's a friend in an informal living room get-together scenario helping to put the pieces of the political puzzle together. He doesnt know when it's time to stop, count to ten and take a little break. Doesn't make him a bad person, because he hits home for a majority of the viewing public. I think that unless some good friends corral him and take him back a few notches he's headin' for the distinct possibility of a nervous breakdown. He can't handle his own emotions anymore. He's too intense. He's gotten too close to the fire, meaning too "personally involved" in the dire circumstance this country is in. No one man is the solution, the people are. He cannot grasp that. Just thinking out loud!

    Now come on again and tell us how much you hate him and his influence. If you had to choose who do you hate more...Beck or Palin?

    Some recently... and 'many MANY' are two very different things. You DO understand the difference.... don't you?

    Matthews having 750 thousand viewers wouldn't counter a statement that Beck went from 3 million to 2 million.

    However, pointing out Matthews having 750 thousand views WOULD be a relevant counter to someone suggesting that because Beck went from 3 million to 2 million Fox should axe him, or suggesting that he's significantly "hurting" when it comes to the ratings, or that people by and large are tired of him.

    Its factually accurate to suggest he's lost viewers in a micro-view of the situation. However, in a macro view, he is still a successful show with a large viewing base and significantly more eyes and ears on him than his nearest competitors.

    Where? I just looked at every post you made in this thread, and unless I missed one, the only link I saw was to ratings... nothing about sponsors.

    Right, though that is not entirely the whole picture. If FOX thinks they should be getting more viewers and can with another host, then how many viewers Mathews get is irrelevant, except as in how much of his market share than can draw away. Stating that beck cannot have lost a million viewers cuz he has 3 times the ratings of Mathews(which was what I was commenting on) is clearly false logic.

    I would also point out that a successful show on FOX is different from a successful show on MSNBC. There is no viewer threshold that works for every network. Let's look at an example you and I can relate to in a way, wrestling ratings. If Raw was on NBC and getting the ratings it is getting on USA, it would be a failure. But on USA, it is a huge success. Impact, which has 1/3 the ratings of Raw, is also successful for it's network. FOX has much higher built in ratings based on network appeal than MSNBC, so to be successful on FOX, you need higher ratings. MSNBC considers Hardball a successful show for them that makes them money. On FOX a show with the same ratings in the timeslot would quickly be canceled.

    Is FOX considering firing Beck, or reworking his contract, or nothing at all? Damned if I know, I, and you, and every one else posting here does not have enough information to determine. Is he costing the network advertisers? Do they think they can get better ratings with some one else, or get ratings for less? How is the demographic breakdown compared to what FOX wants? Without knowing these things we cannot really judge the likelihood of the truth to the story.

    As for TV. The following is from March last year but the numbers hold up and Beck remains #3 on the radio, and even if he was 5th he'd be way ahead of any Liberal.

    This is wishful thinking by desperate losers.

    CNN, MSNBC Plunge as Fox News' Ratings Surge

    CNN, MSNBC Plunge as Fox News' Ratings Surge

    CNN's main hosts lost almost half their viewers in a year, according to ratings data assembled by the Times. In fact, the trend in news ratings for the first three months of this year was only up for Fox, while MSNBC continued its huge plunge, too.

    In all, Larry King's audience dropped 43 percent for the quarter and 52 percent in March. Meanwhile, Anderson Cooper, who follow's King dropped 42 percent in viewers and 46 percent among the key 25-to-54-year-old audience.

    By comparison, Fox News, which had its biggest year in 2009, continues to add viewers. Greta Van Susteren’s show was up 25 percent from a year earlier. Bill O’Reilly, whose show commands the biggest audience in prime time with 3.65 million viewers, was up 28 percent, and Glenn Beck was up 50 percent from a year earlier.!

    Unfortunately too many of Beck's weaker minded viewers are arming themselves and attacking innocent people for us to simply ignore him as we would prefer to do.

    For example: "Progressive Hunter" | Media Matters for America

    Beck's irresponsible lies must be refuted at every turn. It's why I donate to Media Matters of America.

    There are people standing in line to have their product exposed to 3-4 million viewers, at a time.
