O NO, not an establishment republican

When Beck goes I go as I’ve had it with FOX lately.

The only person who watches the left and informs us on what they are doing

can you imagine the parties on the left and from the bigots now?

Predict the Judge moves to that slot as he has done a good job when he filled in and is out of the loop on the Business Channel. I think Dobbs stays on Fox Business.

Ever thought that Beck will get the go ahead to make intensely researched specials with a good budget that are shown on Fox and other media? Radio and daily TV is a killer; Beck’s thing is connecting dots. Maybe that is where this is going?

You better be careful who you like and don’t like on this board. Say something good about certain people not in favor here and you could find yourself uninvited to the party.

Soros, communists, Socialists, Van Jones, media matters, establishment GOP, and bigots towards mormons are all happy now.

They know how to stand UNITED with each other; even though there may be some internal differences. This is precisely why conservatives can't win for trying...too much petty bickering.

I really feel sorry for you fools that think Beck is a “kook”. He was called such for his prediction of the left bedding with the islamists, and he was 100% right.

Just keep you head in the sand if it makes you happy.

FNC isn’t going to renew his contract, I think they want someone who doesn’t offend Prince Walid or something.

This might be why Beck was talking about Islamic radicalism the last couple of weeks -- he no longer cared if it created heat from the Saudi stockholder.

Sometimes the chalk board would make me crazy, but I always knew that it required tremendous prep time on Beck’s part. He is an extremely intelligent and capable man.

I can’t either anymore. I was a fan but now, his message is tiresome. It’s overload and hard to process all that he gives us. And if he suggests stocking food in the basement for the coming revolution one more time....!!!

I suggest those who are 'tired' of Beck's warnings and such spend a little time reading Ezekiel 33...

“They will put in Karl Rove....”

The way FNC has been drifting left recently, that wouldn’t surprise me at all.

“Big numbers” as you put it translate into ad revenue. sponser’s pay for audience and if it’s there they pay and if it isn’t they don’t. It’s that simple.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
If it was that simple then the Left wouldn’t have bothered to run their successful sponsor boycott of Beck’s show.

The difference is the quality of the ads that run on Beck vs. the rest of the Fox’s shows. Ads for Ford, Tide, Pepsi etc are much more lucrative than those Buy Gold ads. You won’t see any of the former on Beck.

Now it may be more complicated than this but ad revenue was certainly a major factor.

Maybe he is transitioning into a weekly show, similar to a Stossel special?

Beck was fired. He didn't quit.

His ratings are down %40. He is being boycotted by 3 different groups.

Drive by media strikes again. You need to actually read the story to learn he's not out.
But then that darn scroll button is a pain to use for many.

maybe its because i am old, but when I tune into FNC all I see are these 20-something airheads, yapping and yapping and flapping their gums and yammering on and on about trivial crap that only some dumb 20-something could be interested in. human brains do not begin working properly until they are at least 35 years old. but at FNC there they are yapp yapp yapping about inane crap. until Beck came on at 2pm (west coast). then, suddenly, the little kiddy crap that FNC and their little kiddy anchors dish out all day turned to real, complex, adult-brain type of issues and topics that made you want more and more, instead of being talked to like a little twerpy kid about some stupid twerpy kid topic, by stupid twerpy little kid anchors. :)

His ratings are down from where they once were, yet they are still stronger than anyone else Fox might replace him with. Beck will be the Shelley Long of Fox News.

“the guy may be right sometimes but he hurts his cause with erratic behavior”.

There is some tension in watching Beck “perform” that suggests that he is constantly on the verge of a meltdown.
He needs to find a simpler message and refine it rather than try to portray himself as an authority on everything from George Soros tactics to global destruction.

The average Joe, driving home from work, does NOT want to be frightened on a regular basis in the middle of the day.
Most folks have enough stress in their own lives and would not choose to have the c**p scared out of them with predictions of impending doom.

On his daily radio show, when he and Stu and Pat bantorback and forth accompanied by annoying laughter and private jokes, it reminds me of Imus and Bernard. Only the latter’s exchange is meant to entertain and is written into the script.

No one was 'admonishing' anybody...my POINT was that there may be something driving Beck to warn people, and that answer may be found in the Scriptures. You certainly aren't compelled to listen to or read ANYTHING...no one is.

Beck isn’t done. Not by a long shot. He sees this as his calling. I find that people who can’t stomach beck’s message tend to be people who haven’t quite come to terms with the fact that the game has changed drastically in the past few years. They want to go back to the days of listening to Rush Limbaugh parodies of the Democrats not the realization that the Democrats are now full blown communists nearing their final realization of world revolution and Marxist control.

Folks, I like Glenn, but am a new comer to his show(s). I don’t have time to see the TV show, only the radio in the morning. I sense some Freepers have “calamity fatigue” from Glenn’s message, while other relish it and are still absorbing many of his (fairly mainstream Ron Paul-style) warnings about govt debt, etc.

Bottom line, it is possible Glenn got kicked off Fox due to poor ratings, or due to wussy Advertisers - or due to the big $Obama political Ads money Fox might give up if they retrain Glenn. There could be many reasons. Glenn also seems major-league overextended -— what a work schedule he appears to have! It must be massive, exhausting.

Or.... maybe .... is Fox angling to host Presidential debates in 2012? Glenn would be an “awkward” line up member to retain if that’s the goal.

Beck hinted a lot in the last quarter of last year that he had some big ideas for the new year. Maybe this is part of it, who knows? The Freepers who have calamity fatigue want to bury their heads in the sand and watching Beck doesn't make that easy.

The country is ending. Just as Soros relayed to Beck, "that train has already left the station, you are either on or you are off". Some people want to convince themselves those lights down the tracks aren't an oncoming train.
