The announcement came yesterday and Americans breathed a collective sigh of relief. Glenn Beck, will no longer be allowed to propagate the airways with his lies and mis-information. Well, at least not on FOX. The network announced that Beck was leaving at the end of the year.
Of course, the news left many liberals and progressives speechless. Glenn Beck was on a nightly mission to prove that all that went wrong with the world was because of progressives, and he frequently – with the help of his trusty chalkboard – advised his faithful audience to take action and do whatever they can to stop the progressive machine. One of his suggestions? Beck was heard telling his followers to “shoot them in the head!” and that Saving America, and the world for that matter, was in their hands, and he wanted to make sure they knew it.
Claiming to be a Christian who believes in the principles and teachings of God, Beck advised his audiences to leave the church. Also recorded was his suggestion that someone kill Fareed Zakaria of CNN and his use of an unfortunate event in Egypt, where a female journalist was sexually assaulted, to prove his chalkboard was right about Egyptians.
That he was able to stay on a so-called “news network” for two years spewing these lies, hate and fear to the American people is not only a testament to who and what Glenn Beck is, it also speaks volume for the Fox Network itself. Only when the network began losing money from sponsors and advertisers, did they even begin to consider not renewing Beck’s contract. With over 300 sponsors deciding to pull the plug on Beck’s show, Fox finally decided to do the same.
But with a news organization that obviously prefers profits over content, it’s just a matter of time before the next version of Glenn Beck is premiered. Wait for it…!
