RE :"...it's perhaps surprising to hear Media Matters threw a big bash in Washington last night celebrating Beck's departure from FOX. Kidding, it's not surprising. Especially since Media Matters is apparently taking credit for the fact Beck is leaving the network (despite evidence to the contrary) . From FBDC's party report: This is probably the largest crowd weve ever had at Media Matters, said [Media Matters founder, David] Brock, scanning the room of mostly twentysomethings with beer. Of his employees who helped topple Beck, he told the crowd, They are tireless, tenacious and so so so so so smart.
Because of it, Glenn Beck is going to have a little more free time next week. The absence of Beck is not only a victory for us here, but a victory for civil discourse in our country.
Sad to see Beck go. Someone needs to show this article to Roger Ailes. This makes him look like a wuss.
Beck was a nice break from the O Reilly/Hannity formula, he worked up the liberals more than any of them could. He was the only one that talked about how food and energy prices would rise, and how the government couldnt successfully re-inflate the housing bubble.

Missing Glenn Beck on daily radio for sure...Talk Radio isn’t the same without him.
Started listening to him Day One when he came to Philly Talk Radio back in 2001, and it sucks that the scum on the left have been able to force him off - and the cowards on our side cave in and let it happen.

(The Second Amendment - By Any Means Necessary.)
Time for We the People to form a conservative cable TV network. We’re outnumbered 30 to 1 now and FOX keeps getting more moderate. Now Beck leaving. Is Pravda winning, or are there some media/entrepreneur types out there willing to take this on? If we had a billion, (or whatever it took),I bet we could get enough FReepers to put this together.

(Conservatism is the only hope for Western Civilization.)
It has nothing to do with Ailes. MM went to the advertisers and threaten boycotts, negative on-line campaigns. etc. and the advertisers caved.
