    Beck is out at fox!!


    Glenn Beck will end his daily Fox News Channel program later this year.

    His departure was jointly announced in a statement on Wednesday by Fox and Mr. Beck’s company, Mercury Radio Arts. The statement did not specify an end date for the show, called “Glenn Beck,” which has been telecast at 5 p.m. on Fox News since early 2009.

    The GOP hates old people, babies, and anything else that moves. Did you people know that?

    Best thing about Beck (arguably the only decent thing about Beck) is that he annoys the crap outta the left. I find that very funny.

    Beck may be a radical if courage and willingness to thoroughly explore controversial and provocative themes is your definition of radical, but I can assure you that Fox didn't boot him. Not with his ratings. His depature is his idea and nobody else's.

    He got those ratings in an impossible timeslot with the rerun at an equally impossible midnight. Had they run him in prime time, I would expect his ratings
    would beat O'Reilly and Hannity. The rumor is that he never got a prime time slot because he never committed to more than one year's contract at a time and they always knew he wouldn't choose to be a permanent fixture at Fox. So they didn't want to offend their other popular personalities, O'Relly, Hannity, Van Sustern.

    I didn't watch his program often, but when I had time to do that, he never failed to inform as well as entertain and was far less annoying than the fast paced and more chaotic O'Reilly Factor and Hannity. But my best to Beck in whatever career choices he makes. He certainly has accumulated wealth to the point he can afford to take whatever risks to call his own shots now.

    after his comments about donald trump, i'm figuring ailes and murdoch didn't trust him speaking during election season.

    i wonder if beck's going to get his own network now.

    I couldn't hate anybody who has consistently been this reliable for a laugh, it would be like hating failtogo or Pat Paulson.

    I thought the O'Reilly/Beck segment re Trump was great. Beck expressed a lot of the concerns that many of us are feeling re Trump and O'Reilly countered with a rationale for why Trump was willing to make us all a bit uncomfortable.

    I think Beck expressed what a lot of us are thinking about. Nothing against Beck in that.

    The interview which should put the 'left' more on Beck's side than not:
