Why Fox fired Glenn Beck
Deseret News ^ | April 13, 2011 | Jason Wright

Posted on 04/13/2011 10:06:32 AM PDT by ForGod'sSake

You've heard that Fox News fired Glenn Beck, right? You heard that Fox couldn't manage him anymore. You read that network president Roger Ailes canned him to stem the rush of advertisers fleeing his program. You saw on the evening news that his program has been shedding viewers so fast Beck can hardly stop crying.

Those headlines and news leads have been repeated so often it’s safe to assume they’re all true. Even Beck’s kids must think their old man got a pink slip.

Except that he didn’t.

The grossly misleading headlines are typical of competing networks and talking heads that prefer a controversial story about sinking ships to the truth. Of course they’re rooting for Fox and Beck’s collective failures; that’s the game plan in a highly competitive marketplace.

Ever notice that when FNC switches to their White House Reporter standing outside to make his report that the leaf blowers are going full blast or some other construction is going on?

If Fox fired Glen Beck for poor ratings, then every host on CNN and MSNBC would immediately get fired. Because none of them come close to his rating numbers. Those are the hosts in primetime as well as the ones competing directly against him.

Didn’t get Fired. If anything he quit the TV show. He signed a deal with Fox News however. But he sounds like he wants out of the tv show to do something else. He sounded on radio today that he wants to even leave New York City. But I could be wrong. Glenn Beck says a big announcement soon. Beck sounds like he might be planning for the bad times ahead in this country and the try new methods to deliver his message. he told a caller that he maybe finishing his tv show but he will still be around and you will see him daily.

Beck is a very good media and entertainment entrepreneur. Everyone on TV is an entertainer and puppet. ALL of TV is covering for Hussein.

I tolerate O'Really because of Beck..
If Beck got lynched O'Really is persona non grata to me..
Greta, Shemp Smith, BAir and Cavuto have always been rinos or democrats.. as O'Really is..

Many are watching this Beck thing.. to see if FOX stinks or not..
I think Murdock and Ailes are not cowards.. lets hope..

Thank goodness there’s a few good journalists out there that will tell the real truth no matter how much it hurts. I love Glenn Beck and I wish him nothing but the best and hope he continues to kick ass and take names. We need more like him and those out there that may have Glenn in their cross-hairs (oops, can I say that?) better watch out! I’m lovin’ this........:) God bless you Glenn Beck. I’ll “see” ya on the radio.

Glenn, is my hero..He told the world what is going on in Washington and how the communist have taken over..Gave us details of what George Soro’s is and how he works..Now we will continue here with the truths he has given us about this scum in Washington..Soro’s didn't win he dug himself another hole to be filled in when we finish reporting about his take down of America with his puppet Obama and his Communist whores..
Glenn just told the truth and all of you filthy communist had better watch it you will be the next to go..Just wait pigs until 2012..

Glenn, is a rich man,he is a true Christian making a difference in this country..God has a special place for him and has more work for him to do..No matter what these communist in Washington say or do he will be safe since he does have one thing they do not and that is the Love of our father in heaven..

The Author has a relationship with Beck and offers unique insight into what really happened.

Click the link...read the story...some excerpts...

"The fair and balanced reality is Beck’s contract was set to expire this year. He and his vastly underrated business and creative teams at Mercury Radio Arts have long considered a change when he became, in effect, a free agent."

“Whether or not you agree with Beck on politics and policy, it’s almost indisputable he’s more Walt Disney than Rush Limbaugh."

So on his radio show today, he hinted that he may(or may not) be moving the show to TEXAS. Sounds logical for tax reasons and the fact that he would truly love to have a ranch.
Seeing that Imush is in New Mexico, the only logical state would be our warm and friendly state.

author Jason F. Wright lost the Republican nomination for Congress to Chris Cannon in 2000

Following the failed election, the BYU graduate was offered a job writing with a think tank in Washington, D.C.

I had not heard of this Cooper fellow but I get your point from a 5 sec clip view. JMHO, but I think Beck is channeling something on a higher level.

At least he isn't a Muslim or Communist..

Strange I always was taught the Mormon church was named The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Beck has truly stepped on some very large and powerful toes but has, up until now, fearlessly soldiered on. I have become a huge fan of Glenn Beck; the ONLY show I watch(ed) religiously. I’ll miss him when he goes.

I had no problems with mormons until Utah Repubs pushed for amnesty in Utah. Utah is a Mormon state. In fact the LDS and Catholic churches in UT were behind it. Screw them.

Having spoken of Texas in glowing terms numerous time on his shows, it wouldn't surprise me. Would LUV to have him for a neighbor. He needs to stay out of Libtard Central in Austin though to get the true flavor of Texas. If fact, the Piney Woods of East Texas might be to his liking (((hint, hint))). ;^)

If the libs liked Glenn Beck then they’re gonna love Judge Napolitano who, unlike Beck, is a self-identified Tea Party member.

True. MormonISM is the same to Christianity as sitting on the kitchen counter makes you a toaster.

I will miss his show too,but you know he has taught me so much about the thugs in the white house along with the thugs they hang around with..I now know that the Muslim is a puppet of Soros where I knew about Soros but didnt know how much he is involved in our countries downfall and what is going on..I knew he was a Nazi lover and turned his Jewish friends into the Nazi’s and led them to them and those people were murdered by the pig Nazis.Now that is a filthy piece of work he is filthy..Oh well, at lease we know now..

I think we will be seeing Glenn again..He still has his radio show..

True enough but da judge is no Glenn Beck. I watched him play footsie with Charlie(((SPIT))) Rangel, the criminal rep from NY the other day and I could be wrong, but it looked like pure theater. Watching FoxNews for any length of time is becoming more difficult with each passing day. What little edge came with their "fair and balanced" reportage is losing it temper. Most of their newsers seem to regularly get sucker punched by the libtards they often have on. Going up against congenital liars and tax cheats is not for the faint of heart. Fox seems to be losing it.

I think you are right we would love to have him here..At least he would not have to breath the same air that the liberal breath where he is now..

People do love him here..

I do agree he should stay away from Austin area..East Texas is good ,but Central Texas is better..Lots of good land in both area's. LOL!

Heh. This ol' man has moved to the feeder street looking for a gravel road. Got off the freeway years ago -- thank God!

He accomplished his mission. It is time to move on.

That's possible. I often wondered how he managed to keep all the balls in the air. Coming up with more or less new material every day for three hours of radio and an hour on the tube has to be a killer. I hope he remains visible enough to continue to give the moonbats heartburn.

Indeed. The author apparently accomplished his mission and I was sure it would get Freepers' attention.

I do think he wants to get out of NYC. He already has his home in Connecticut on the market for sale....so this is something that he has been planning.

Maybe Glenn is considering a shortwave radio outlet for his show in case if things go bad. Shortwave is relatively easy, you don't need a computer or internet access, you just need a radio.

Glenn Beck is channeling William Cooper.

I remember listening to William Cooper on shortwave radio back in the 1990s.
