Glenn Beck Is Leaving FOX's 'Glenn Beck'

By Aaron Smith, staff writer
CNNMoney


NEW YORK -- Glenn Beck's production company and Fox News announced Wednesday that he will be leaving his show "later this year," according to a statement on the conservative personality's website.

Beck's company, Mercury Radio Arts, and Fox News also announced an agreement to produce "a variety of television projects" for the Fox News Channel as he prepares to leave his current show, "Glenn Beck."

Fox and Mercury Radio Arts said that Beck "intends to transition off his daily program, the third highest rated in all of cable news, later this year."

A representative for Fox would not say why he is leaving the show, even though the press release from Fox and Mercury Radio Arts said "Glenn Beck" has averaged 2.2 million total viewers during the 27 months it has been on the air.

Glenn Beck has less education than most people on this forum

Glenn Beck is descended from German immigrants who came to the United States in the 1800s. Beck was raised as a Roman Catholic.

Graduated from Sehome High School in June, 1982

Glenn Beck is a recovering alcoholic and drug addict. Beck has been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

By 1994, Beck was suicidal, and imagined shooting himself to the music of his fellow Washingtonian, Kurt Cobain. He credits Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) with helping him achieve sobriety. He has said he stopped drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana in November 1994.

Dear B4L,

Our community just won an important and hard-fought victory. After more than 285,000 people spoke out, leading to a loss of over 300 advertisers from his top-rated show, Glenn Beck's program on Fox News Channel will come to an end this year.1

This is huge. Beck's record of race-baiting is virtually unsurpassed among mainstream media figures, and Fox News has continued to give him a platform -- until now.

We launched our campaign against Beck in July of 2009 after he topped a week of race-baiting directed at President Obama with the most stunning statement of them all—he called Obama a "racist" who has "a deep-seated hatred for white people, or the white culture."

Within days we approached Fox News' advertisers, asking them to stop supporting Beck's poisonous statements with their dollars. Nearly 300,000 people signed statements that we presented to advertisers. Thousands of others made phone calls when our staff's calls and member comments weren't enough. Within weeks, dozens of advertisers dropped the show. In the end, more than 300 advertisers decided that Beck was too much of a liability and requested that their commercials not be shown during Beck's program.

In their statement announcing the shift, Fox News trumpeted Beck's ratings success. In reality, Beck's audience and ratings have been on the decline. Fox has also steadily refused to admit the obvious impact that the loss of more than 300 blue chip advertisers has on their bottom line. Beck's only advertisers have been lower-tier brands that could not have earned Fox News as much revenue as the upper-level brands—thus turning a show that should have been a top earner into a financial liability.

Together, we've succeeded in doing something very important. We've helped hammer home the message that deception and race-baiting are not acceptable for a "news" network and that everyday people will hold accountable those who are responsible.

Beck will remain with Fox News Channel as a producer, and we'll be watching for what might come from that. And we'll continue to push back on Fox's race-baiting problem, which of course goes beyond Beck. But today's victory is important: Beck's voice, his incessant conspiracy theories, his dangerous incitement to violence, his casual race-baiting—all of these will be gone from television by year's end. And that's something for which we should all be proud.

We want to thank CREDO, Media Matters, MoveOn.org, and StopBeck—all of whom played critical roles in the effort. But more than anyone, we want to thank YOU, our members, who helped us win this important victory. We couldn't have done it without you.

But over the last year, “Glenn Beck” has lost more than a million viewers from its 5:00 p.m. show, going from an average 2.9 million in January 2010 to 1.8 million in January 2011, according to The New Republic. Beck’s radio show has been dropped in several big cities, including New York and Philadelphia. TV advertisers started fleeing, including Procter & Gamble, Coca-Cola, and Wal-Mart.

In recent months, it seems, Beck’s theories became so outlandish that even conservatives – both viewers and media personalities – were having a hard time stomaching them,” writes TNR’s James Downie.

He cites a theory by unauthorized Beck biographer Alexander Zaitchik, who says that Beck was caught in a vicious circle: “To keep viewers coming back, he had to keep creating new, more intricate theories. Last November, in a two-part special that indirectly invoked anti-Semitism, he accused liberal Jewish financier George Soros of orchestrating the fall of foreign governments for financial gain. During the Egyptian Revolution, Beck sided with Hosni Mubarak, alleging that his fall was ‘controlled by the socialist communists and the Muslim Brotherhood.’ ”

I doubt that he was spouting over the top-far fetched conspiracy theories when he was on CNN either. However, I don't recall watching him when he was on CNN.

He was about politics. He discussed politics and political idealogy to make money. He held a political rally for goodness sake. How anybody can say he wasn't about politics (especially given the broad connotation of the phrase politics) is simply beyond me.  Oh yeah, he was a poltical comment but he wasn't about politics. Glenn Edward Lee Beck (born February 10, 1964) is an American conservative radio and television host, author, entrepreneur, and political commentator

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glenn_beck

Political views:

Beck has described himself as a conservative with libertarian leanings. Among his core values Beck lists personal responsibility, private charity, the right to life, freedom of religion, limited government, and family as the cornerstone of society. Beck believes in low national debt, and has said "A conservative believes that debt creates unhealthy relationships. Everyone, from the government on down, should live within their means and strive for financial independence." He supports individual gun ownership rights and is against gun control legislation.

Beck believes that there is a lack of evidence that human activity is the main cause of global warming. He holds that there is a legitimate case that global warming has, at least in part, been caused by mankind, and has tried to do his part by buying a home with a "green" design.He also views the American Clean Energy and Security Act as a form of wealth redistribution, and has promoted a petition rejecting the Kyoto Protocol.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glenn_beck

In any event, your so called revelation that Beck was only in it for the money in no way affects the validity of any comment made by by any poster prior to you posting your so-called revelation.

Man please. Go on 'head with that nonsense.

I'm glad Fox fired Glenn Beck and if he didn't actually believe the nonsense he was spouting, I'm doubly glad they fired him. That would just make him all the more distasteful in my book.

Wildman,

Thank you, Sir, for taking the time to completely debunk and deconstruct y04's foolishness.

As to:  "I doubt that he was spouting over the top-far fetched conspiracy theories when he was on CNN either. However, I don't recall watching him when he was on CNN."

I DID watch Beck on CNN - a lot - and if there ever was a Jekyll and Hyde, it is him.  A completely different guy - in terms of his content.

y04's out of context comment that some didn't have a problem with him then would be like saying that we as a people preferred the Repub Party in the 1860's, so we should NOW prefer them because we did THEN - no matter if they have changed.

Oh, snap........... that IS what he says!!!!

Another example of illogical, non-contextual thinking.

Check out this explanation by co-founder of ColorOfChange.org of their effort to urge a boycott of advertisers of Beck's show.

Your choice: transcript, video or audio -
http://www.democracynow.org/seo/2011/4/8/the_fall_of_glenn_beck_did

He says that hundreds of advertisers left.

Others say that the key element was that Roger Ailes asked Beck to chill a bit and he didn't and that other personalities at Fox were concerned that Beck, with his wild conspiracy theories (e.g., American Liberals and Islamic extremists are behind the recent uprising in the Arab world), was becoming the "face" of Fox and that was detrimental to their self-professed goal of being a credible news source.

This is a valid concern because, ask y04, "Personnel is policy."

Another take on why the Beckster is no longer a Foxster.
Quote
When Beck’s show made its debut on Fox News Channel in January 2009, the nation was in the throes of an economic collapse the likes of which had not been seen since the 1930s. Beck’s angry broadcasts about the nation’s imminent doom perfectly rode the wave of fear that had washed across the nation, and the relatively unknown entertainer suddenly had 3 million viewers a night — and tens of thousands answering his call to rally at the Lincoln Memorial.

But as the recession began to ease, Beck’s apocalyptic forecasts and ominous conspiracies became less persuasive, and his audience began to drift away. Beck responded with a doubling-down that ultimately brought about his demise on Fox.

He pushed further into dark conspiracies, urging his viewers to hoard food in their homes and to buy freeze-dried meals for sustenance when civilization breaks down. He spun a conspiracy theory in which the American left was in cahoots with an emerging caliphate in the Middle East. And, most ominously, he began to traffic regularly in anti-Semitic themes.

Wildman, Glenn Beck was never about politics.  Read 'em and weap. (http://www.forbes.com/forbes/2010/0426/entertainment-fox-news-simon-schuster-glenn-beck-inc.html)

It's amazing you people had no problem with him when he was with CNN.

I doubt that he was spouting over the top-far fetched conspiracy theories when he was on CNN either. However, I don't recall watching him when he was on CNN.

He was about politics. He discussed politics and political idealogy to make money. He held a political rally for goodness sake. How anybody can say he wasn't about politics (especially given the broad connotation of the phrase politics) is simply beyond me.  Oh yeah, he was a poltical comment but he wasn't about politics. Glenn Edward Lee Beck (born February 10, 1964) is an American conservative radio and television host, author, entrepreneur, and political commentator

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glenn_beck

Political views:

Beck has described himself as a conservative with libertarian leanings. Among his core values Beck lists personal responsibility, private charity, the right to life, freedom of religion, limited government, and family as the cornerstone of society. Beck believes in low national debt, and has said "A conservative believes that debt creates unhealthy relationships. Everyone, from the government on down, should live within their means and strive for financial independence." He supports individual gun ownership rights and is against gun control legislation.

Beck believes that there is a lack of evidence that human activity is the main cause of global warming. He holds that there is a legitimate case that global warming has, at least in part, been caused by mankind, and has tried to do his part by buying a home with a "green" design.He also views the American Clean Energy and Security Act as a form of wealth redistribution, and has promoted a petition rejecting the Kyoto Protocol.

In any event, your so called revelation that Beck was only in it for the money in no way affects the validity of any comment made by by any poster prior to you posting your so-called revelation.

Man please. Go on 'head with that nonsense.

I'm glad Fox fired Glenn Beck and if he didn't actually believe the nonsense he was spouting, I'm doubly glad they fired him. That would just make him all the more distasteful in my book.

Are you guys done with your celebration? I hope so because I have some bad news for you. If you have been paying attention.....which obviously you haven't....Glenn Beck was not FIRED from FOX. His show was cancelled but he is still working for FOX and is going to do specials on relevent news stories. If you really want to know how Beck thinks....read his book "Broke" that will give you a hint of what he's about. But....I doubt seriously if any of you care.....you'd rather say things you have no clue about. GO VIKINGS!!!

 :lol:  You are right I could really care less how Beck thinks. Hopefully his specials won't be similar to those over the top conspiracy theories that  caused his show to be cancelled.

You people still don't know the truth about Glenn Beck.  It is obvious you people are repeating what you have heard.  

It's also obvious that you haven't told us what you think the truth is, and how your perception of the  truth is different than what others poster know or have heard.

 :shrug:

I know the truth about Glenn Beck.  You people only repeat democratic, liberal, and anti Fox News talking points.  The sad thing is the democrats and liberals that you people get your Glenn Beck talking points from know the truth. 

Since you people don't know the truth and are too lazy to look it up I will let you people know when I call into "The Jack Gravely Show" this morning.  Even he knows the truth about Glenn Beck.

...that most, if not all of the things he talked about on his show was basically plagiarized from The Alex Jones Show and Infowars.com & prisonplanet.com but twisted not to attack the people and programs that funded his show, the Fox News Network and News Corp?

And, highlander, for the record - THE CELEBRATION AIN'T OVER.

Dude will end up in either back in the bottle or in a psycho ward eventually.  He was dangerous to the peace.

Another reason why the celebration continues...

Beck pretends to vomit on his RADIO show everytime Meghan McCain's name is mentioned.  She had made a PSA re: skin cancer awareness.

Quote
"When I look at that picture, I think to myself, I get the point, put some extra clothes on," griped Beck, who announced in April  he'd be leaving Fox. The departure comes as increasing numbers of advertisers had abandoned his program.

Before Beck's insults, McCain revealed she wasn't actually naked.

"Pundits in DC can calm themselves," she tweeted, adding that both her parents have had skin cancer. "I filmed a skin cancer PSA in a strapless juicy tube dress. All you can see is my collar bone."

McCain later described Beck as "pathetic and extremely desperate for publicity if he's resorting to attacking my weight."
Her mother also didn't find Beck's commentary funny.

"I'm so glad Glenn Beck is leaving Fox," Cindy tweeted. "Enough vitriol and hate. Glenn you are no rodeo clown."

Good riddance!  Next, radio.

highlander, you still out there?

I was just wondering how many of those "specials" Beck has done for Fox in the 7 months since his show was cancelled.

I still can't believe you fell for that PR nonsense that usually accompanies the "FIRING" of a news person.
