Former Fox Contributor Left Network Partially Because of Glenn Beck (Jane Hall)
Newsbusters ^ | 10/25/2009 | Noel Sheppard

Posted on 10/25/2009 8:23:26 AM PDT by markomalley

Former Fox News contributor Jane Hall said Sunday that one of the reasons she left the cable network was because she was uncomfortable with host Glenn Beck who she believes "should be called out as somebody whose language is way over the top and scary."

Fox watchers know Hall as one of the regular liberal panelists on Saturday's "Fox News Watch" as well a frequent guest on "The O'Reilly Factor" where she was typically paired opposite former CBSer Bernard Goldberg.

Liberals can’t face the fact that the truth about the current administration is scary.

One of the shows I quit watching long ago, and she was a major factor in that decision. Glenn Beck rocks! Jane Hall IS a rock.

What is it about Beck that’s so scary. Unless, it’s the fact that he sheds light on things the administration would rather the serfs didn’t know.

Jane’s claim to fame is that she’s a “journalism professor” isn’t it?

If that’s true, no wonder most journos can’t find their arses with both hands and a map.

She was so boring and predictable with answers—straight out of uber Liberal academia. She spoke in a monotone, always appeared disinterested.

I don’t know, but Jane Hall reminds me of Joan Walsh of Salon.com (frequent guest on MSNBC, what a shock), two absolute liberal whiners. As I said, SEE YA JANE!

She could always be depended on to give the Lib side of things, which allowed them to claim, truthfully, that the program was balanced. A lot of what she said ticked me off, but so what? You could predict what she was going to say on any given topic. It is always a good idea to know what your opponent is thinking and say, and in that sense, she served a legitimate purpose.

I kind of agree about Beck's language being "over the top". I have heard Beck on the radio for years, and his TV show is very much like the radio version IMO.

I only started watching Beck last week. He's on @ 4:00 my time, so I have to DVR the show. I thought I should take a look, because Beck is way out in front with bombshells lately (Van Jones, Anita Dunn, ACORN pimps/hos, etc).

On Friday's show, he used the Brian De Palma film of The Untouchables to describe Obama's "Chicago style politics", and showed clips from the movie. That was all well and good. Where I thought he was over the top, was where he would say things like "they will KILL anybody who gets in their way". I can see how some would thing that was a bit strong.

Still, I like how Beck breaks things down so anyone can understand it. He needs to do some "air quotes" at times, though, when he uses words like "KILL".

Amazing she has no issue with the sometimes outrageous statements of Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton, Bob Beckel, Alan Combs on Fox but finds Glen Beck too extreme. Another example of liberals having no tolerance for a free exchange of ideas. Perhaps CNN will pick her up and give FOX Lou Dobbs.

Jane Hall was yet another MOR Media Analyst type who has been on FOX for years, apparently in service to the concept of being “fair and balanced”. SHe NEVER had ANYTHING of interest to say, was a total moderate only because she had NO point of view of her own, so a moderate/Lib by default. I think it might be time for FOX, to finally start to become the Network the Left and this Administration has always said it is: but to be it FOR REAL. That ‘fair and balanced’ thingy only got you more disapproval from the Left, FOX.....don’t you realize this is WAR???????

Her commentary was consistently weak. I thought she was left go because she was utterly lame and totally devoid of personality.

Bring back the Dhue.

“Hello, I’m Jane Hall. I’m very afraid of Glenn Beck. His constant use of the truth scares the liberal panties off me.......or at least they would if I wore panties,....which I don’t. I’m much safer now that I’ve left Fox. I’m no longer forced to confront accurate and factual data, and I’m now able to contribute more to the effort to destroy America and bring the horrible country to its knees. “

Did she thank Beck for saving the taxpayers over 8 billion dollars slated for ACORN before she left? Scary indeed.

There's few things in the world I enjoy more than watching a leftist loudly and publicly exercising their principles. Principles like Tolerance and Understanding for those viewpoints you disagree with, two of those universal themes they are always beating the right over the head with.

Good for you Jane, you win the Chavez Red Star for excellence in two face liberalism. Way to stand up for your principles and get your lousy duplicitous arse off my television.

Bravo!

I like News watch but she was always irritating because when she spoke, she seemed unsure of herself and had to constantly look at that other bearded liberal monkey ( who is also gone ) for support.

No loss. Jane Hall was a been-nowhere-done-nothing college teacher who must have gotten her job on Fox the hard way. Never had a useful observation that I ever heard.

She’s lying. She left because all of her libPerv friends wwere either leaning on her to do so, or would no longer talj to her because she was appearing on Fox, even if she was defending the DemoGenerate POV. But then Socialist Democrats are like that, until they round you up and railroad you to the camps.
