    Oh, maybe the word "fired" is too harsh for his faithful followers - maybe they just thought he was too loony for their best interests and are just not renewing his contract. There, is that much better?



    Yesterday’s announcement came just one month after anonymous Fox officials had leaked their plan to get rid of Beck to New York Times media columnist David Carr, who wrote that Beck’s future was in jeopardy in part because he had lost a million viewers since the peak of his show’s ratings.

    Carr explained, “The problem with ‘Glenn Beck’ is that it has turned into a serial doomsday machine that’s a bummer to watch.” Then Carr quoted David von Drehle, who had written a pathetically soft profile of Beck for the cover of Time magazine. “He used to be a lot funnier,” Von Drehle said.

    This, mind you, is the broadcaster who managed at least 202 mentions of Nazis or Nazism, 147 mentions of Hitler, 193 mentions of fascism or fascist, “and another 24 bonus mentions of Joseph Goebbels,” according to Dana Milbank. “Most of these were directed in some form at Obama -- as were the majority of the 802 mentions of socialist or socialism on Beck's nightly ‘report.’

    He won't be his whacky self at 5:00 with his conspiracies and his blackboard idiocies for the FOX News viewers - Fox News is going to keep him occupied where no one will be exposed to his whacko conspiracies and doomsday fantasies! I don't think Fox wants any more advertisers dropping off.

    Excited? He can join that other loony toons "Perry" - that ought to really lower Texas' standing even more!

    Why Fox Is Saying Goodbye to Glenn Beck

    “Glenn Beck is a powerful communicator, a creative entrepreneur and a true success by anybody’s standards," Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes said. “I look forward to continuing to work with him.

    Beck’s rise to media stardom followed a meteoric path since he joined Fox News in October 2008 just weeks before Barack Obama captured the presidency. With his black-rimmed glasses and chalkboard, at times he seemed like the living personification of Howard Beale, the fictional character in the 1976 film "Network," who persuaded Americans to stand up en masse and yell, “I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore.”

    Too bad about Beck. He's on to something but his ego got out of hand. Funny how no one disputes his facts. Some of you may know that part of his schtick was a red telephone open 24/7 for a call from the White House with a constant invitation for them to dispute his facts. Never called.

    His research is phenomenal but very difficult to access since one has to wade through his ego to find it. Intolerable. Sad.
