Posted on 01/26/2012 6:46:46 AM PST by servo1969
Cliff Kincaid at America's Survival has launched a call for Fox News to bring back Glenn Beck.
This announcement comes on the heels of troubling revelations about Beck's firing and other disturbing trends at Fox. It quickly got front-page coverage at the Huffington Post, presumably to launch a campaign of ridicule and smears before Kincaid's idea builds momentum. No matter how much they sneer, the left is terrified of Beck.
Beck's firing was the work of George Soros, Kincaid has revealed. Soros funded Color of Change, the organization founded by Van Jones that launched a boycott against Fox after Beck (really Trevor Loudon) outed Jones as a communist. But Soros is also behind the groups Jewish Funds for Justice and Media Matters, both of which attacked Beck as an anti-Semite for his reporting about Soros' activities during WWII. Soros admitted in a 1998 CBS 60 Minutes interview that as a teenager in Hungary, he had participated in the confiscation of Jewish properties but felt no guilt about it.

But then again, maybe he was pushed?
Yep all but Hannity suck IMO.
FOX has never been Conservative in an absolute sense. Any “news” org. who keeps Jerry Rivers on staff is highly suspect.
They were drifting leftward the first time this was posted, too:
Um... Since when was Beck “fired”?
He left to start his own business... and he is making 10 times more money
I am not in agreement with him on Romney or Gingrich, but he is still doing great work- no one would have known about Soros if not for him.
Beck, while he still is on the mark on a lot of issues seems to have stepped partly into an alternate universe. Fox, on the other hand, may be leaning a bit more left but that I think is partly perception because they are on their knees daily supporting mitt the twit.
Beck needed to be fired, and fired he was. He is increasingly breaking with reality. I think he might be dangerous.
Drifting left? More like full-speed ahead. Roger
REMEMBER THE AUDIENCE REMEMBER THE AUDIENCE REMEMBER THE AUDIENCE
Beck is a fraud.
Always has been, always will be.
A Morning-Zoo huckster.
Not just that, where is the daily coverage of Fast and Furious?
They have been drifting left for a while, but the evidence is in what isn't said, not in what is.
Why Glenn Beck? In Southern California, he’s the only voice available for conservatives in the morning—either on KRLA at 870 kilocycles or XM satellite radio. His shows are now pretty much infomercials against Newt Gingrich, so I’ve been listening mostly to music.
I cancelled GBTV a while back, and I’m glad I did. Beck spends all his time trying to destroy Newt. Yesterday he and Ann Coulter were discussing the Newt supporters who cheer for him at the debates and chant “USA”. They both agreed that those people were a mob, straight out of her book, Demonic.
And as for Hannity, I think he’s a shallow, self-important little dullard. He showed his true colors to me the night he interviewed Rick Perry and was inexcusably rude to him.
They were never that far to the right to begin with.
We can’t possibly know what goes on behind the scenes.
Fascism is a slow spreading cancer.
I think FOX has been drifting leftward for years. Before President Obama was elected, I remember the panel on Special Report saying that he attended Reverend Wright’s church twice a week for twenty years but of course did not believe the (hate-filled) words coming out of Reverend Wright’s mouth. President Obama has also favored the Muslim people in so many ways. When asked if Barack Obama was a Muslim, the people on the panel said that some people will believe anything. Some people will watch anything too. For me, FOX is now a channel I used to watch.
All ahead full, Rudder hard over, Continuing 90 degree port turn.
Fox, Coulter, Beck et al are drinking the Flavor Aid in greater quantities these days.
You are 100% correct
Actually, who cares? The REAL mystery is why MGM “closed” the Stargate franchise just as a new movie was in pre-production.
The only Conservative hosts left are Sean Hannity and Greg Gutfeld.
And I can't stand watching Hannity anymore.
"The Five" has a mostly Conservative panel but I can't stomach Bob Beckel or whichever America-hating, Left-Wing Commie sits in for him.
So Red Eye is the only show on FOX I watch anymore.
Although I do DVR O'Buttface on Wednesdays just so I can FF to The Miller Time segment.
I'm with you on that one. I simply cannot watch this guy's condescending sneer whenever someone disagrees with him. He and Alan Colmes, both have that look on their face whenever they speak.
I started seeing a change (a real change) about 1-2 years ago in the different "commentators" that they bring on the panels that they have. I sometimes find myself asking the t.v. who these people are, when I get to the panel on Bret Baiers show. I find that more and more I am tuning into FoxBusiness channel; but, even there you have to put up with some idiots. And why does Monica Crowley always have to have a "date" whenever she appears. And that guy is always some insufferable lefty.
Beck on now, trashing Gingrich at a hundred miles an hour, and defending Romney’s “self-deportation”.
Fox News is a dot com, not a dot org.
As with any buisness, the only thing that matters is the $$.
“Fox News Drifting Leftward?”
Ya’ can’t go to Arkansas when you’re IN Arkansas.
Ever since Axelrod had his “conversation” with Roger Ailes a couple of years ago.
LOL!! true. And I do not believe Fox is officially abandoning a 'conservative' stance. It's what has made them all rich. It is clear who is for Mitt though. Less clear is who is for Newt.
Hannity is unlistenable. He repeats himself too much.
Sadly, I too have stopped watching Sean Hannity. In regards to his radio show, starting next week I will only post on Monday and do a whole week posting with pinging the thread each new day because there has been a lost of interest in that thread. Hannity has gotten too soft.
Still, what does the democrats and other liberals say about Fox News?
They sure keep the pressure on that “Faux News” is right-wing and biased. I think this causes Fox to tilt Leftward in response.
Numerous liberals have said to me Fox is biased. I bring up they have liberals on, too. Usually the response focuses on Alan Colmes and how he is an idiot and doesn't represent them well at all. I then bring up Whorealdo, Kristen Powers, Bob Betchel, Sheperd Smith, and they usually give me a blank look. That tells me they're just parroting talking points and never actually WATCH Fox News to see for themselves if it is biased.
Only the left fringe would have ever considered Fox conservative.
Fox was balanced, down the middle, but we’ve spent so long with a left bias media, the middle ends up looking conservative.
Fox always “drifts” leftward at election time.
