    Don't hold your breath....Beck is a huge ratings grabber. I love how the Mail, sources the NYTimes for their hit piece....One liberal outlet rumoring on the whisper of wishful thinking of another....hehehe....Stooges.

    I predict his contract gets renewed, but changed. Possibly for a shorter period of time than the last one. Just blind guesses.
    I may be wrong.

    Some of those viewers are people like me, who don't disagree with Beck, but get a bit suicidal after the relentless cacophony of information. Gotta take a break for sanity sake.

    Besides that, I think Beck is feeling very full of himself these days, like his charge is to save the world and it has gone to his head. He needs a dose of humility if you ask me, and as I said I agree with him for the most part.

    That's one of the funniest things I've read in a long time... The Daily Mail...liberal? In the same way Attila the Hun was a liberal too I suppose?

    You American righties crack me up. Anything you don't agree with is liberal apparently. Well it's a simplistic analysis that keeps you all on the party line I suppose.

    The Guardian - which of course is liberal in comparison to the vicious nasty conservative Daily Mail - suggested that this could be commercial hardball as contracts are up for grabs but that Beck has been BORING people with his end of days conspiracy theories, and that even people like Bill O Reilly are now quite dismissive of Becks increasingly cranky views.

    The "liberal" Daily Mail... still chuckling...

    This was based on a NY Times hit piece that was filled with their classic "unnamed sources", so take it with a grain of salt.

    As for Beck losing his audience, he is still the #4 most watched show on cable news. Here's the ratings from February:

    Look at that... The only show on MSNBC to crack the top 10 was a non-political, non-news show.

    lol
