Glenn Beck Responds To Rumors He and Fox are Parting Ways
The Daily Beck ^ | March 14, 2011 | Joe Seales

Posted on 03/14/2011 9:05:45 AM PDT by JoeSeales

This morning, Glenn Beck returned from his vacation and responded to a New York Times article that suggested he and Fox News could be parting ways soon. I received hundreds of “Say it ain’t so, Joe” e-mails last week about this topic, so it goes with out saying that I was glad to hear Glenn get this out of the way this morning...

If he gets canned it would be his own fault. His show is so depressing. He is all doom and gloom all the time and his crying or whining depending on the day is ridiculous for an adult male. Anyway I doubt that he will be fired until his contact is up and then they will make the decision and not the New York Times which is a liberal paper.

While I find Beck's communication style a bit offputting I must say in his defense that these are times full of doom and gloom. Sometimes it helps to have someone try to connect the dots.

So you’re saying the appropriate response to today’s world is MTV and Prozac?

I don’t find it doom and gloom. The 70’s were doom and gloom. As long as you have your health, family, and God there should not really be a need for doom and gloom. I mean seriously what on Earth can Obama do to us. People here think we are going to be put in some kind of camps, get turned away for medical, lose all our money, etc. Our taxes are not going to 100 percent. In fact, Obama has the same tax rates as President Bush, Obamacare probably won’t see the light of day and there is no way we are going to camps.....so really what is this doom and gloom. Yes politically it would be nice to have a Republican and if things go our way then we will. The Democrats were all doom and gloom during the “dark” days of President Bush when we were excited. Now we are acting like doom and gloom like the Democrats did. Heck 50 percent of the United States is always in doom and gloom depending on the President in office.

Hopefully, they’ll replace him with Judge Napolitano—whose two problems seem to me to be his support of another ConCon, and support for a VAT or flat tax, I don’t recall which—all taxation is robbery!

What is gloom and doom is the pending economic crisis....the collapse of the US dollar....and the impending events that will unfold should that happen.

What is gloom and doom is the never ending unconstitutional actions, the marxist, radical (terrorist) ties and the Progressive agenda of this administration.

Gloom and doom = reality to those that are awake. And just because Beck points out and connects the dots to what is happening, doesn’t mean WE THE PEOPLE can’t turn it around. But sometimes, things just look bleak.

I happen to like Beck and appreciate the way he communicates and talks about things NO ONE ELSE does. I’ve learned more watching and listening to him (and then doing the research for myself), than anywhere else and I thank God we have someone like that on our side to point us in the right direction. God.

Doom and gloom, my arse....

I’ll guess that there are millions more Americans educated about the Cloward/Piven strategy, Georgie Soros and his political, meddling “organizations”, communists/marxists in our government and union corruption than ever before, thanks to the light Beck has shone on them.

Beck’s being attacked because he’s successful.

I’ll continue to watch, until he’s gone.
When/IF he goes, FoxNews will lose another viewer.

The way appropriate blog posting is generally done is that Bloggers post full copy articles - not excerpts - in the bloggers forum. Posting in the wrong forum (News/Activism) or posting excerpts of your own blog and driving people away from the FR site is considered blog pimping and is severely frowned upon around here.

Jim Robinson, owner of Free Republic, on Bloggers:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2636843/posts?q=1&;page=501

“I have no complaint if a good conservative blogger posts his own material to FR, not as an excerpt to drive hits and discussion back to his blog, but rather to impart useful information to OUR readers and to promote and join in on the discussion and conservative activism HERE on FR.

If a blogger can’t or refuses do that, and if he constantly complains or fights with our participants over it, then I’d just as soon he doesn’t post here. It’s not my job to make his content or his presentation or cooperation acceptable to our readers. That’s his job. And if he cannot do it or refuses to do it and continues posting brief excerpts only and obviously attempting to draw away our participants while loudly complaining about it, then I have no sympathy for his complaints and the more apt I am to ban his account and blog.”

A word to the wise is generally sufficient. We don't want to drive good conservative thought off of FR. But we need to fight a recent surge of people using FR as a launching pad for click-through marketing attacks. This kind of abuse is unfair to our volunteer donors that keep FreeRepublic.com running.

Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.

“If there is anything to be happy about what is going on let me know ot tell me what you are on.”

Agree. The simultaneous dismantling of this once great country and the ruination of our children’s future is very depressing. Someone has to soberly tell it like it is or we are deluding ourselves and living in denial. There are huge problems everywhere you look in this country. Not much to be happy about really.

If his ratings were down, and Fox were thinking of dropping him perhaps he could get government funding from the same cash cow NPR it locked onto.

I am sure NPR and liberals will all agree since they are all so consistent and fair without regard to partisan differences.

Jesus Christ is in control of history. Just the thought makes me feel WONDERFUL, and brings a smile to my face.

I am not counting on Social Security anyway. I have been hearing that we weren’t going to get it since I was very young. I have been saving and saving like crazy for 24 years especially during the great years of the 90’s and early 00’s. I have individual stocks and mutual funds and no 401Ks. I will receive a pension from the military starting in June 2011 when I retire. My family will be more than fine. I just can’t get caught up on money.

The 70’s were doom and gloom. As long as you have your health, family, and God there should not really be a need for doom and gloom. I mean seriously what on Earth can Obama do to us.

The 70's were a cake walk compared to what's coming our way. What can obama really do? How about if he and Geitner and Bernanke debase our currency to the point where it's replaced as the world's reserve currency? If that happens we'll wish we were as lucky as the folks in Greece. And BTW...Geitner told the world on Friday that the admininstration is 'open' to looking a replacement for the dollar as the world's reserve currency.

The advertising people at Fox refer to Beck as “Empty Calories”, because he pulls such good ratings, but no one wants to run advertisements during his timeslot for fear of a boycott.

If we want Beck to stay on Fox we need to do an Anti-Boycott of potential sponsers and let them know we want to hem to advertise on Beck’s Timeslot, that would help a LOT.

Total nonsense. You can believe that all you want but you are going to be very disappointed. And if we get a world currency than what? We just pay things with another currency. Obviously you would have killed yourself if you had to use the Euro when they changed had you lived in France, Italy or one of the other countries. So what’s it going to be? What currency? A new one? Euro, dollar, yen, pound all going to be replaced to one currency. lol.

I used to love Beck. I am starting to get over him. I am fed up with all the time he takes off from work. Every Friday show is prerecorded. I never watch those. He is always on vacation, sick?, or off doing book signings, stage shows, rallies, and revival meetings. DO YOUR DAY JOB.

He spends so much time on his other endeavors that he doesn't give the TV show the time it deserves. His bosses must see this. He always has another new project under way.

I can't stand the constant HYPE. I can't stand his constantly referring to how many years ago he talked about something way before everyone else. He thinks he is a modern day prophet. He denies this, yet his actions and statements show otherwise. He claims to be so spiritual yet he seems to know nothing about humility. “ How many years ago, Stu, was I saying this?” (PUKE).

He uncovers much information, has great theories, suggests great books to read, sounds alarms (doom & gloom doesn't bother me). Exposes the marxists in the administration. Shows us all the connections between labor and communists. More of that stuff Glenn.

No more 8/28 rallies. What a waste of an opportunity. NON-POLITICAL?, WHY? It should have been. Instead it turned into your own personal “I love Glenn” crusade. Billy Graham must have been proud.

Fox should read Glenn the riot act and put limits on the content of his shows. Make him work five days a week, or let him go. I can get all the Glenn Beck I can handle on the radio.
