    Glen Becks Last Season

    Fox announced recently that they would not be renewing Beck's contract due to loss or ratings. The rating are down 30%.

    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.

    Hmmmmm... how shall I dare put it? Oh yeah, he was crazier than a ****house rat.

    There, there. That about sums it up.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    His views could have been seen as too loony for some, while at the same time, there are curbs of popularity in anything. With the political success of the Tea Party being at least somewhat credible, the energy level is probably somewhat diminished.

    It was a combination of all. Maybe there was some truth in what he said, but you know what else? There was plenty of good news as well. You can't sit there and spew negativity all day without it eventually coming back to you. It was all shock value and sensationalism with him. So, yes... it's a combination of all of what you said:

    1) He was a conspiracy theorist.
    2) Everything he did was negative.
    3) He could sensationalize the most trivial news bits.
    4) He fakes like he is crying and generally hams it up - seriously, he's not a good actor.
    5) He even did news bits trying to prove his religion is correct while saying he wasn't trying to prove his religion was correct.

    I'm sure people can add to my list.

    He was hard to follow and at times became very boring and redundant and he was overly emotional at times.
    Glenn Beck gave me some good information and I believe he was totally sincere but he was destined to have a short run because of the type of show he had. Oreilly is more an entertainment show whereas beck was not

    OTHER! He is an ass-clown shock-jock. He is a poor actor and a pair of cement shoes for the GOP. In short... he sucks.
