Glen Beck Leaving FoxNews, At Least As Daily TV Host; Will Instead Produce Occasional Shows

His show will end later this year, but he has some sort of deal where he'll continue to develop shows for FoxNews.

I guess that means specials.

I'm not a Glenn Beck TV show fan (but man do his radio bits kill me). I think I had two problems with his show: First, as an adult male, I have a subconscious and irrational dislike of being taught to. I'm not saying this is Glenn Beck's problem; I'm saying it's mine. But I'm sure there are a lot of people who are subconsciously resentful of a professorial sort of lecture.

The other problem, from what I saw, is that he seemed to have Big Theories like every week. I just don't think you can come up with a Big Theory every week. Not without an awful lot of stinkers. Giving so much of his program over to Big Theory Explication seemed to me to be a mistake. I just always wondered where that funny, loose guy from the radio went at 5 PM every day. He just became this very jumped-up Mannichean prophet.

I'd even watch his Big Theory specials. As long as I knew they were not being padded with dubious sub-theories and shaky assertions, and we're being produced just to fill the hour.

I'm sort of thinking this was largely Beck's call. Because that show must have been pretty exhausting to do.

No shit on the professorial teaching method. Suffered through enough of that just graduating from the 19th grade and getting my law degree.
If I want to be taught something about politics, I'll only read it if it is magic markered on some hot chick's enormous fun-bags.

3 Rush has said in the past that his TV show was exhausting to do as well..

And his show was pretty much cliff notes of his radio show of the day..

Dunno how Sean handles it..

7 Unfortunate, he was really the only person on TV with balls enough to tell the truth about this administration.

8 I like Beck but I could only watch him connect the same dots so many times.

He laid out proof that the current admin are commies but I pretty much believed that already.

Posted by: Buzzsaw at April 06, 2011 01:29 PM (tf9Ne)

9 I erroneously believed comments in sections of MBM that he was "fired" and just posted the link they listed to drudge. I apologize for this misleading post on the other thread. I was just so shocked, even though I've known this was coming for three weeks or more. Beck's detractors are taking this as a "he was fired" and this is a "win for us". I got sucked in by them and didn't do my usual due diligence and double check before I posted. Again, my apologies to all.

10 So aside from his frenetic delivery,exactly which "BIG theories were untrue? I don't see anyone else on tv telling it like it is. Then again,some still actually believe Obama is naive and incompetent.

I don't see how Obama's plan for 2012 could work. It seems he is trying to get the base out and to do that he is meeting up with Al Sharpton. I just don't see him not getting attacked by people like Palin (I don't see Mittens or Schmuck attacking Romney) for that on the campaign trail. I am not worried right now for 2012.
I don't think a shutdown will be a big boon for democrats. This is not 1995. Boehner is NOT a Gingrich. Not even close. Obama is not BJ Clinton. Republicans do not have both houses. Our economy is not good and our deficit is large.

26 My sources tell me that he was about to blow the lid off one of Fox's dirty secrets: That Shepard Smith... is a liberal.

You were a beautiful man, Beck. But you just flew too close to the sun.


Seriously - the TV show sucked. All the radio bits and back-and-forth with Stu, as well as the callers he takes apart are what make his radio show so good.

You can't recreate spontaneity or dump a bit at the last second to stay in a funny groove on television. Everything is scripted out to the second. It wasn't a BAD tv show, I guess. But it sure wasn't great.

37 Well the Glenn Beck show was kind of like sports center for the end of the world. I still love to watch it. But it became a play by play record of the Decline and Fall of Western Civilization. Beck was very studious, laying out the course we were taking in front of us, and how it extended from where we are to the collapse of society, and the rise of global socialism; then every night dutifully marking off which way-points we had met that day on our journey to Armageddon, and what we could expect to see in the following days. The show is the news equivalent of showing a train wreck in slow motion. You just can't keep from watching. It's a show that demands popcorn.

If Fox is looking for a replacement. I have always loved Judge Napolitano

38 curious, there is all sorts of stuff "out there," particularly in the moonbatty realms which ALL of your friends seem to inhabit.

Since Beck will STILL be under contract to Fox for specials, I have no idea how you think this affects anything. Besides, for years there have been rumors and wild stories about Rupert murdoch, Lachlan Murdoch, and Roger Ailes. I think they are produced in a Georgetown basement and distributed to people in the Village and beverly Hills.

44 Whenever I watched the show (reruns in the middle of the night as the result of insomnia bouts) it kept me interested for one reason; I always thought there would eventually be a moment of instantaneous self-immolation. Either that or an immediate, irreversible dive into madness.

You know, something like- "The 14th Amendment says".... whoosh, flames, smoke...fade to black. Or maybe, "In a letter to Abigail Adams Thomas Jefferson said...oh my gosh- I am wearing two different color socks and they're not even mine...boobaboobabee"

Because no man can keep up that pace every day without a break and not lose his mind or burst into flames.

Posted by: Marcus at April 06, 2011 01:45 PM (CHrmZ)

45 Beck's fundamental problem was/is that he has gotten into a 'can you top this' thing on his show. So every new thing that comes along has to be bigger than the last one; you can only keep that going for so long.

50 Ace: "I'm sort of thinking this was largely Beck's call. Because that show must have been pretty exhausting to do."

Bingo. He and his staff have done the yeoman's work so many others didn't and won't. He has led the charge exposing the Marxists in our midst in a very public way with pretty much minimal support from this outsider's view. I'm amazed at the info he aggregates and distributes and that he is willing to further the investigative work alt-media uncovers. He pushes the envelope and invites the informed viewer to read/view the source on his own.

Frankly, I enjoy the professorial style even though, yes, I can reach my own conclusions and, yes, the style can be a bit over the top. However, that style is effective and it must be somewhat "entertaining" in order to keep all sort of viewer interested. That's TV and that's education outside the classical lecture halls.

Still, the stress must be incredible. That he would want to change the format up to better optimize his time, effect, and life is not surprising.

Posted by: AnonymousDrivel at April 06, 2011 01:46 PM (swuwV)

51 I'm fairly certain that there will be occasional Beck specials showing up on Fox periodically, which will make it fun to watch Media Mutters At Random Passerby pee their pants while everyone watches.

Beck has made many assertions of fact which were rarely contradicted by our domestic enemies ('Nuh-uh', repeated over and over doesn't count) although I sometimes didn't think much of some of the conclusions he drew from them.

Look, have you not noticed that beck has become more vociferous in his revelations as of late? Have you noticed he has almost been fearless? You knew it was coming. the sad part is that only one person is even going to investigate the video tape of the SEIU guy, Issa and so far we haven't seen that investigation. Beck probably figures "what's the point"....he brings stuff out, legitimate stuff and it's ignored by everyone. He apparently gave up his connecticut house and moved into an apartment, I'm guessing in Manhattan. He can spend time with his family instead of trying to save people from themselves.

62 "The Judge" could fill in a lot ... with "The Donald" spots.

Beck might have started down this road knowingly, when he started so directly linking Obama and soros and the whole Cloward/Piven deliberate destruction of our country thing.

Then he also added his religious segments. He treated his "Faith Hope Charity" and related themes as being directed to him from God. Always bothered me a little he asked for his clan to pledge their lives, fortunes and sacred honor, while he was actually making his fortune off his books and website.

But he presented a lot of important ties between Soros, Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, and Obama and others. No one else has been so direct ... so of course he was a prime target.

Posted by: AmishDude at April 06, 2011 01:53 PM (T0NGe)

69 I listen and watch nearly every day, and have had the impression that he felt like there were better ways he could use his time, that is, reach more people. At the start of this year, he started saying, "Either you're on board and get what's happening or you don't. I don't care. I'm moving on."

I wouldn't be surprised if he starts his own network, because he often laments the fact that the culture has gone to hell. His own network would rectify that. He could have family-friendly programming, history lessons geared to kids, in general, stuff that everyone could watch without getting embarrassed at something or other.

He has also said he would never be silenced, even if it meant coming to the local town square, on a nationwide basis.

75 Glenn Beck is going to form his own TV network, and Ailes will be a part of it. What this story really means is Beck is transitioning from an employee of Fox to more of a partner. Beck is better when given the time to develop his thoughts and theories, which when rushed in a TV time slot, and along with a radio show does not give him the time. He can do two things at once, but not three.

Ace..that's fine. But I don't think you were his audience. His was those that were not quite aware of history, or what the hell is going on now. I am a bit of a history buff, and keep up on current eventsbut I actually did learn a bit from his shows..which I actually listened to on satellite while driving
He was able to get a few scalpswhich, The MBM deliberately ignored the background of some pretty unsavory characters in the Obama administration, but it was Beck's exposes which brought some of these cockroaches to light; Anita Dunn,Van Jones, etc.
I don't know the reasons for this. It could be that the boycotts have had an effect. I think we were better off having him than not, your sensitivities about being being talked to aside.

Posted by: beedubya at April 06, 2011 01:59 PM (AnTyA)

77 It must have been humiliating for Beck to consistently pull a smaller audience than that retard O'Reilly. There is not a dumber, more buffoonish person on television, including those old whores from The View. The only explanation for the popularity of his show has to be some kind of dog-whistle type of secret attraction to other blindingly stupid assholes that tune in without really knowing why.

Posted by: Ted Kennedy's Gristle Encased Head at April 06, 2011 02:00 PM (+lsX1)

78 I've never really know what to make of Glenn Beck. He seems like a smart and earnest guy. Maybe it's the earnest part that puts me off a bit -- he always seems like he's on the verge of bursting into tears or going into a red-faced screaming rage. As for the pedagogy (the whole blackboard thing): he strikes me as a guy who's very insecure about his own intellect, so he feels a compelling need to prove he's right...thus the constant diagramming and link-making.

He is funny, though, and he's had great success doing what he's doing. In a lot of ways he's like Rush, only a more conspiracy-theory oriented one.

I dunno. Rush is about the only talker I can really listen to, and I can only take him in relatively small doses.

And if Steyn ever gets his own show? I'd watch every minute, record it, and then watch it again. Some of my favorite Rush shows were the ones where Steyn was filling in. And the only reason I would tune in to Hugh Hewitt would be to listen to Steyn.

84 Beck is geared for people like my husbands best friend. He has been pretty ignorant of politics until Obama came along. He's playing catch up now and he loves Beck. So does my husband. I guess the upside is, when I get home from work, hubby will actually notice now! lol.

88 Never understood o'really's ratings. I'm sort of sick of all the women he surrounds himself with. It is wholly upsetting to watch them cater to him on the air. the only ones willing to really disagree with him are ingram and crowley. the rest are a bunch of nitwits. fox is losing it's female audience. Women are sick of too many women with no ideas not whispered into their ears by the producer. Fox was once a news channel now it's all TA all the time. It is a huge disappointment.

92 Agreed. I like Glenn, but one can only wallow in so much doom. I like that he tempered it with faith, but it wasn't a faith that told you no matter what God is still in charge. It still boiled down to you doing something about it - but sometimes, maybe God wants things to fall apart.

Posted by: Robin at April 06, 2011 02:10 PM (VY112)

93 I also feel Glenn Beck is better than anyone else on Foxnews. Sure, I disagree with him sometimes, but I feel he is the only one who makes an attempt to get to the truth. The rest are either too much about themselves (O'Reilly) or are complete shills and cheerleaders with nothing to add, but "Yea, GOP" even if the GOP is acting like a bunch sissies or liberals (Hannity).

Posted by: Minstrel Boy at April 06, 2011 02:10 PM (rwioF)

94 If you have watched Glenn Beck regularly, you will have noticed that he is pretty much ALWAYS RIGHT with his BIG THEORIES.

That's not the problem. I think the problem is that Glenn has basically turned his show into CBN. I am a Christian myself but find Glenn's constant sermonizing about God on a "news" show to be a bit off-putting. The constant religious spin was likely making the Fox Execs nervous.

Too bad because Glenn always made excellent points.

The Left will consider this a HUGE victory.

Posted by: Bill Mitchell at April 06, 2011 02:11 PM (Er/am)

95 Beck was "that guy". Maybe you watched but you soon learned that you couldn't mention that you watched in polite company. He's like Batchelor. Batchelor is ahead of the curve, sometimes by a full year, yet everyone on here when I bring up his show calls him a "drama queen". they call beck "a crier"...

there was one thread on here where beck was totally pulled apart. I often wondered if he wasn't on that thread with us, he's that type, BO is too. No one wanted to be the one to stick up for Beck. Just like no one wants to be the one to say what they truly see out there. I mean when the prophecies people are reporting visits by men in suits to their homes because they told you a dream they had and they are psychics for a living, well then you know you can't really say anything anymore.

Posted by: curious at April 06, 2011 02:13 PM (k1rwm)

THIS^He's done all he can with this format. If he gets one hour specials on, say, a monthly basis, he'll be able to craft them carefully, with less stress, and possibly with simultaneous links on the Blaze or another, dedicated site.That would be a win for him, his health, his family, Fox, and for viewers who thought seeing him every day was just too much of a good thing.

100 I've been listening to Glenny (as I call him, we are BFFs) since about 2004. He is brilliant on the radio and is at his best when just free flowing. And he has shown a predisposition towards riding a hobby horse right into hell; he did it with the Terry Schiavo thing. Stations dropped him b/c he was talking about it for the entire show and it was just wearing.

He is a radio, not a TV man. To the point where watching him do the radio show is far less funny than just listening. He needs to be off the cuff and working with the imagination, not necessarily visuals. I actually think that the permanent addition of Pat has hampered him-- he did just fine with Stew.

On the radio he's been hinting towards this for months. He's been saying for at least a year that he thinks he's ruining his own career by the choices he's making.

Doesn't Judge already have a weekend show or something?

104 Mixed feelings about this...

I agree with other commentators that it got a bit tedious having this 'Big Thing' he would school us on regularly, weekly, if not almost daily. I remember watching himthinking, 'how much is there to ratchet the tension up'? Watchers know we live in bad times, and so the ooga booga scariness got tired after a while. Truth be told, we started to only watch him sporadically because yes, he did tread over a lot of the same ground an awful lot.

I enjoyed some of his 'exposes', like on Soros and his special on Communism. I think he did a huge disservice to himself when he backed down after his Obama comment but maybe that was pressure from above. I think he should have defended himself more strongly, because if a 'white' person had gone to a church that taught that kind of philosophy he would have been called a racist and no one would have blinked. It needs to be okay for us to call a spade a spade. And Fox should have fought more when sponsors started pulling out, because I'm sure some of those same people advertised on Overbite's show, and his really hateful and spite-filled rhetoric was far worse than the conspiracy theories and alarm bells Beck was sounding.

I hope to GOD Sarah Palin doesn't get her own show. Really don't think she's a a great fit as a talk show host. I hope they find some up and coming talent and give them a shot - someone more intelligent than Hannity and less egoistical and narcissistic than O'Reilly. Wish Special Report was on at a better time... maybe juggling is in order.

Posted by: Linlithgow at April 06, 2011 02:21 PM (Gim9y)

105 Part of the problem with Beck was that he would bring out this stuff, just like Charlie Gasparino in the financial world, and then, no one does anything about it. And you the audience sit there wondering if anyone will step up and do anything at all. That was what was depressing. Ok, fine, you defined all the problems but where are the solutions other than prepare, get a bunker, buy gold, load up on water and food and know your neighbors. That's not a solution, that's a recipe from someone who sees something that my mind won't even let me process.

107 Radio he can do from about anywhere, TV pretty much has to be done from NYC.
He would love to unload his home in CT and has countless offers to go to Texas or other locations that while not "off the grid" have a bit more rural attraction.

Rush bailed out of NYC and when they still kept auditing him he sold off his apartment in NYC as well so they could not keep their hooks in him. I am sure that the two floors that Mercury Radio Arts has in NYC must be costing him a fortune that could hire a lot of other warm bodies.

The TV show does convey material that is unavailable on radio, but he has the two web sites to back that up as required.

When Steyn fills in for Rush it is like a holiday. During the primaries I drove up to NH to see him and Jonah Goldberg in a meeting. That was fantastic. I don't know it he would want to make the trip in, but I'd probably turn the cable back on if he did!

118 Too bad Beck is leaving. Hard to imagine he'll have a similar impact on the culture without his daily tv show. He was able to put ideas and topics into the national conversation, something few are able to. Most just react to the news of the day. And most of the leftist obama-scum try and make sure they don't make the news of the day and float under the radar in their nice fifth column manner.

We'll see. He had a radio show for years ... and was not well known prior to his TV show. No radio only guy outside of Limbaugh has much sway these days. And he's been #1 for decades -- and used to have a TV show, however briefly.

I can see how Hannity's or O'Reilly's style is more sustainable over the long term. Beck's more manic energy meant he was burning the candle at both ends.

Hopefully Shep Smith will have a stroke on live TV and somebody replaces that leftist fuckwad. Not a killer stroke, just a nice one that leaves the left-half of his face dead and drooling and gets that piece of dirt of tv.

120 Beck delivered a pretty ugly message with relatively good humor, which is not easy.
He served the purpose of filling in the blanks for those people that recently woke up and needed the Cliff Notes version of the last 100 years of progressives/commies tactics and the resulting damage.
He outdrew the leftists and their paid union trolls on the DC's mall, while drawing a telling comparison to each gathering's dramatically different reverence for the grounds measured in tons of waste.
And he had all the Right enemies (pun warning Ace), but it probably is time for a change.

I'm with those calling for Steyn or Breitbart, and I hope the rumors are quickly debunked.

123 What I'm finding amazing about this story is how much the lamestream media is spinning it "Beck out at Fox, ratings had been slumping" was one headline I saw on a local news website.
My read on the situation is that the agreement was mutual and may have had something to do with Beck's health and how hard he worked to put on his show, in addition to his radio show and the other projects he was working on.
But, it sits so much better with the rest of the media if they spin this as some sort of ouster.

124 I'd like to see Beck have a weekly show, but it's looking like he'll just be doing specials every month or so.

I was never a big fan of his TV show. Some of what I saw was good, other was kind of rambling or stuff I already knew. He did take some pretty big scalps, so kudos to him for that. I doubt he could've done it without his daily TV show.

I've started to listen to his radio show because my local "Republican" radio talk show host has become unlistenable. His radio show is more entertaining than his TV show but I doubt it will carry the same clout.

His replacement? A shuffle between Steyn, Stossel, Breitbart, Hume, Miller and some others (like Walter E. Williams) would be great but it's not gonna happen. Whatever it is, it'll probably suck.

129 78 I've never really know what to make of Glenn Beck. He seems like a smart and earnest guy. Maybe it's the earnest part that puts me off a bit -- he always seems like he's on the verge of bursting into tears or going into a red-faced screaming rage. As for the pedagogy (the whole blackboard thing): he strikes me as a guy who's very insecure about his own intellect, so he feels a compelling need to prove he's right...thus the constant diagramming and link-making.Posted by: Monty at April 06, 2011 02:00 PM (4Pleu)

I could only ever watch about 10 minutes at a time of his show. The drama and hyper-earnestness were just too exhausting for me. And given the way he kept amping it up week after week I was convinced he was heading for a Howard Beale-type breakdown. But his radio show is more relaxed and actually has some humor in it.

I don't watch the tv show often, sometimes I catch it when I'm up working at like 2 am. I do try and listen to the radio show, it's really funny, really funny, like this site on the radio. I'm the type that believes it's better to know all the rumors out there. If I was Beck I'd want to know the rumors. I normally only post stuff that I can back up with a legitimate link. although really I'm not sure the MSM is even a legitimate link anymore. A lot of time, if you read the comments on the financial blogs you read a lot of stuff that eventually comes to fruition. People comment on stuff where you least expect to see it. Normally I wait for a link from another blog or the MSM and rarely post "rumors".....I thought of just sending them to beck directly, maybe that would have been best. But I figure his minions read here so they would see it and if they were interested would pursue it.

143 At the risk of sounding too much like the Media Matters crowd -- Yippee and good riddance! I can't stand Beck's professorial nature and his whiny, tear-filled monologues. His religious antics were largely phony as well, and they were downright offensive at times. The reason his radio program is decent is because he shares it with sidekicks. Otherwise, it would be the same melodramatic BS. Toward the end, he was teetering on the edge of the conspiracy theory cliff. He started behaving like a Paultard.

That said, I did like some of his beginning shows when he was uncovering things about the Obama administration. That was good stuff.

Let's fix that right now. You can listen on line. Here is the link. And you can listen any time you want at the same link.I mean sometimes I have to leave the room I'm laughing so hard.I heard him talk about the apartment in passing, no announcement or anything but I thought nothing of it, it made sense to me. Why take an hour plus car ride to Connecticut morning and night when you can walk or get in a cab and go to work. I assumed he sold his Connecticut house. I will tell you though, I felt bad for his kids losing their back yard but I guess a back yard loss is a small sacrifice to take the wear and tear off of your dad every day.

147 We are in familiar territory. John Gibson was fired from that timeslot for saying something stupid about Heath Leger just around the time that Fox needed to ramp up for the elections in 2008. After the elections and the new year 2009, Beck started in that slot. Now we are looking at the same thing.
They won't replace him with anyone until after 2012, especially after the news article said that the show will go off sometime before the end of the year. His original contract was up in December 2011so I'm betting December is the timeframe we're talking about. This will leave Fox with the slot for Election 2012 follow the candidate blather until November 2012.

149 Hmmm. Obama launches his re-election campaign, and a few days later, Beck is removed from the board.

Hmmm.

Wasn't Beck warned off by one of Soros' flunkies?

You have to wonder.

150 I think that if Beck was actually fired or there was anything to this, Beck would say so. It would behoove him to spill the beans on any conspiracies that work in his favor.
Plus, I think Glenn's been out of his house in Connecticut for a year now. He's been trying to sell it if I'm not mistaken, but with the down economy, it's a no go. He did sell off alot of his furniture and stuff for charity through upillar.com a while back.

161 I would really be shocked if he was fired. It's gotta have been his idea.

First, as an adult male, I have a subconscious and irrational dislike of being taught
to. I'm not saying this is Glenn Beck's problem; I'm saying it's mine.
But I'm sure there are a lot of people who are subconsciously
resentful of a professorial sort of lecture.

As an adult anything, I found his style annoying, too. Of course, Obama does it all the time. At least in Beck's case it doesn't stem from arrogance. It's just a style thing.

My observation is that it's a Mormon thing, especially a Mormon male thing. I've been to a number of services, including general conference (which was also televised this weekend, btw) and am in LDS ground zero and it's just the style they adopt. It permeates into the secular culture here as well. The men crying thing is part of it, too. We've had it confirmed by several LDS folks that men showing emotion in that way is a desirable thing. (Pretty much every public function that I've been to, whether religious, political, or academic, has featured a man choking back tears at some point.)

It's not my cup of tea, but he's done good work so I hope he continues on in some other venue. He's a wealthy guy. Maybe he could start some sort of institute for political activism or history or journalism.

163 Personally I'd say he gave up. At least once a week it seems he would break a major story and the rest of the legacy media (Fox included) would just ignore it. At some point he realized he had woke up about as many people as he was going to from that media outlet and it was time to move on. And with the constant pressure from the Saudis, who are fairly large investors, the final outcome was preordained anyway so why fight to get the contract renewed?

Be interesting to see what the next move is, he is a cash generating machine now so he won't just disappear back to obscurity on the AM radio dial. But at the same no broadcast or cable TV outlet will touch him with a fifty foot pole. So forget the rumors of him launching a cable channel of his own. Right Network had fairly good money and at least B-list hollywood types on board and couldn't get carriage. They relaunched as an OnDemand virtual channel and still couldn't get a major cable system to accept their programming. Beck is even more radioactive then the Fukushima reactors.

164 As an adult anything, I found his style annoying, too.

As an adult female, the fucking crying and politely clapping, ignorant studio audience made my head explode. If I wanted to watch Oprah, I'd watch Oprah, not the batshit crazy love child of Oprah, Joseph Smith, and Robert Welch, tyvm.

Also, @#159 - no he isn't America's schoolteacher. He's a John Birch Society schoolteacher. He says "do your own homework," but it's pretty apparent nobody actually DOES their own homework, real homework, or they'd see how ridiculous some of the shit he peddles is. And that's not by libtard standards, that's by conservative standards. As he always says, "don't take my word for it, do your own homework." You'll see.

165 Less than 2 years ago all I knew about Glenn Beck was that he had a radio show and that he'd left CNN to go to FOX News. Beck was supposedly "very controversial" and a "hate monger". That was all I'd heard.

In 2009, his hometown, Mt. Vernon, Washington decided to have a "Glenn Beck Day" and present him with the Key to the City. All the moonbats in the Seattle area went bat-shit crazy protesting, saying Beck shouldn't be allowed to speak. There were "anti-Glenn Beck" days, the city of Mt. Vernon was threatened with financial boycotts, the NAACP was protesting, there were petitions to deny Beck's speaking engagements and to the north, the city of Bellingham was offering their Key to the City to, who else? Jon Stewart.

After all this commotion I just had to find out for myself if Glenn Beck was as "evil" as all that; so I got online and watched segments of the Glenn Beck show on Foxnews.com. My first reaction was 'You have got to be freaking kidding me! This is guy is a "controversial hater"? It was possible that maybe, just maybe I hadn't seen what they were all screaming about so I decided to watch another segment. Still no hating.... so I watched another. I saw a guy who was just like me. This was no hater. Now I watch as often as I can. So I guess I owe my Beck watching/listening/reading habits to the Seattle lefties. THANKS lefties. Ya done good.

169 I don't know what I'll do without me daily Beck class. Where will I possibly get the information to further follow-up on? Who will I be able to trust to point me in the right direction to find the truth? Beck is the only teacher I've had that was honest enough to say "don'tjust listen tome, do your own research" and I did and continue to do so.

I know Beck doesn't need Fox News but does Fox News realize that they need Glen Beck? I realize that George Soros will be thinking he's won but I trust Glen to show up in a better place to show Soroshe hasn't. The bottom line is I'll miss my"one on one"time with Glen Monday thru Friday. Please Glen, don't be gone from television to long, too many of you faithful will be lost.

170 I don't know what the real deal is with Beck leaving fox. This is cause for concern. I can't help but think Obama and the left wing communist/socialist structure is somehow involved. We will never know for sure. Possible threats to himself and family may play a part. America!!! WE ARE HEADING FOR VERY BAD TIMES>

171 Beck's was the only show that I watched regularly. His "connect-the-dots" theories are all interrelated. I have to think that both Rush and Michael Savage caught his show occasionally because I would hear the echo now and then.

My first thought when he said he was leaving was that he would eventually end up in Greta's time slot. When he left HLN he didn't let on at all that he was moving to FNC.

Three things that could have turned some people off about Beck; his goofy style that didn't fit with the seriousness of the topic; his occasional angry outburst that resembled a nervous breakdown; and his smothering love of the Jews.

He is riddled with ADD, and it leads him to start projects like the 9/12, then switch to Hope, Faith and Charity, and now the never-fully-explained E4 project and a self-help book.

His most striking show recently was when he compared the Antichrist of Revelations with the 12th Imam of the Hadith. Confirmed by Muslims and Scholars that he's had on his show, it was chilling.

Also, he was the first to connect-the-dots regarding the lefties, union organizers and Islamists instigating the current "Arab Spring." Look for this trio to turn up the heat in Europe this year.

The stuff he's turning up on George Soros, Samantha Power and the Libya Not-War is astonishing. The "Spooky Dude" has his fingers in over 200 left-wing organizations that would have been put on trial by the House Committee on Un-American Activities in the 1950s.

172 I find it intersting that he was ntmentioned on O'Reilly's show (4-6-11)instead on Greta??????????????What is this about. I think O'Reilly is in the tank with Obama. Why, because he is a softball anymore, and goes googoogahgah over Obama when he meets him like the time beofre becoming President he met up with Obama after a rally in a school gym. O'Reilly just about crossed the rope he was so excited. I have called him a guppy ever since.

o'really let the green eyed monster get the better of him. o'really is a multi millionaire, lives in a mansion, so he doesn't care about the effect on Fox news, he foolishly thinks that after a taste of beck that people will go back to his fluffy "news" with his adoring babes with alleged brains. I guess the march towards the CNN, MSNBC model was all fox wants.

175 I agree ACE. I didn't like his lecturing attitude either.

It's not a put down, Beck and I could drink beer together but he just operates too far outside the overton window to be effective.

Doom and gloom isn't helping out cause. Reagan could present the dire straights of liberalism but contrast it with a message of hope that all is not lost all we have to do is act. With Beck it's different, and its not very appealing to constituencies toward the middle of the spectrum. His lower but still great ratings support that analysis.

I don't listen to Savage anymore either, he makes me want to open a wrist.

God do we miss orators like Reagan.

179 BTW, anyone listen to his radio show yesterday?

Tidbits I took away:
-He is moving to Texas...Fox must not have wanted to pay for him to broadcast from Dallas, Houston or San Antone
-He will be producing a comedy program that will take on John Stewart head-to-head.
-He will be forming a 501(c)(3) or PAC to take on the Tides Foundation head-to-head
-He predicted that something he will announce before December will have the left "praying" to whatever god they pray to that they would wish Glenn Beck was only broadcasting on Fox daily at 5:00PM.

182 To help you become an accomplished research paper writer, you will prepare several research papers based upon the studies completed in research lab. Our research papers are not typical "lab reports." In a teaching lab a lab research paper report might be nothing more than answers to a set of research questions. Such an assignment hardly represents the kind of research paper writing you might be doing in your eventual career. A major goal of this custom research paper writing is the development of effective technical research paper writing skills.

Our expert custom research paper writers provide a range of research paper help; they’re perfect to ensure YOU get a top degree mark. Don’t let your research paper pull you down after you’ve invested so much into your university course. If someone is eager to discover the long awaited research degree and just a step away from it and that step is research paper writing, then one should acquire professional help for getting satisfactory outcome. So to take professional editing help for your papers' approval is not a bad idea.

Written and oral communications skills are probably the most universal qualities sought by graduate and professional schools as well as by employers. You alone are responsible for developing such skills to a high level.

When I research a topic, I may be interested in just the methods, a specific result, the interpretation, or perhaps I just want to see a summary of the paper to determine if it is relevant to my study. To this end, many journals require the following sections, submitted in the order listed, each section to start on a new page.

There are variations of course. Some journals call for a combined results and discussion, for example, or include materials and methods after the body of the paper. The well known journal Science does away with separate sections altogether, except for the abstract.

183 It's right here that yesterday in Bible study we were discussing what evil angels do, and the topic came around to discrimination. I said there are two kinds of research paper discrimination. The first is what we think of usually - when we make judgments based on what doesn't matter, like not voting for somebody because of their race or gender research paper. That's bad discrimination. But there is discrimination that's good and necessary. For instance, "You have no way to pay this loan back; therefore I'm not going to give it to you." When we don't properly discriminate, evil thrives research paper.

I explained that the KGB wanted to get rich, powerful people in media, education, and business to believe it would be good to have a society with NO discrimination research paper. That doesn't just mean we don't have the bad discrimination, but also that we don't have the good discrimination. So there's no difference between those who work and those who don't, research paper those who make sound choices and those who don't, etc. Everyone is guaranteed the same outcome regardless of what they do. Nothing we do matters research paper. That's what communism is, and people who live under it often end up alcoholics or an average of 6 abortions in their lifetime. If what we do doesn't matter, we lose the will to live. That's the legacy of communism research paper.

I mentioned that Yuri Bezmenov was amazed at how the openly-communist folks from the '60's are in control of media, education, and business. And wherever someone totally controls the flow of ideas research paper, it's ripe for the devil and his surrogates to lie and deceive. As long as the realities of life and the truth are observable to everyone, we're not going to wander too far from reality research paper. But when the truth is hidden, people can't learn from reality.

Then I made my fatal error. I mentioned that all of the news companies have the proof that Obama is a member of The New Party - a branch of the Democratic Socialists of America research paper. I was going to say that they won't let anyone know that truth research paper. We can make our choices for whatever reason we think best, but when someone needs to deceive us, evil is at work and we need to watch out.

Before I could finish, though, a lady jumped up waving her arms and shouting that we shouldn't talk about this in church. Church is for how we're supposed to become better people research paper. Then she and her husband stormed out.

Later, someone commented that the devil can work wherever he wants to, and if we refuse to consider his role in any area of our life, we give him free rein there research paper. Another added, "I think it was clear that the devil was right here in Bible study - and didn't like being recognized." It's right her
