    other. his ratings were down because of the content of his show.

    Really? FOX themselves specifically came out and said they were not renewing Becks contract because of ratings losses? Link please.

    The question I propose is did his ratings decline because be think he was too much of a conspiracy theorist, because they don't like hearing the truth, or that they don't like hearing hard news, true or not.

    You're all wrong

    Glenn was not cancelled or fired and is not leaving FOX. He is Changing what he will be doing there. That's all.

    His ratings are dine and he is still number 3 in the ratings and he beat the other Networks News shows combined.

    Roger Ailes said Glenn is great and will be around a long time.

    He'll be producing shows for Fox, continuing his internet productions and radio show (I assume) and doing whatever else is up his sleeve that going to "make the liberals crap their pants".

    He is crazy, and what he was saying on the show was making Fox embarrassed. And that is an accomplishment if you think about it.

    The way he works, I'd say he'll be back in a few years. The thing is, he keeps going over the same stuff. Okay, we get it, Obama is a Kenyan Socialist trying to screw America. Yeah, Soros is evil and trying to subjugate all of America to his leftist will. No matter what you think of his material, it gets boring after some time. That being said, as soon as there is a new Democrat in the White House, he'll have more crap to sell to America....after we pray on it, of course.

    None of those explicitly say he was let go because of a loss of ratings. You're probably never going to see someone say that either. Glenn Beck was hugely popular on Fox, and if there was a reason for him to be let go, it wasn't because of ratings.
