Like so many motormouths before him Glenn Beck has now bit the dust with the announcement that Fox will end his show later this year.
Fox pulled the program for one reason alone -- Beck had started to hemorrhage audience and advertisers because of his increasingly wacky story lines,which included end of days fantasies and attacking Jews among other victims.
He lost “over 300 advertisers.” James Rucker, the executive director of the group,Color of Change said in a statement, “Fox News Channel clearly understands that Beck’s increasingly erratic behavior is a liability to their ratings and their bottom line, and we are glad to see them take this action.”
When it comes to the bottom line there are few better than Fox. Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, etcetera, know where the line is drawn and never step over it, They undertand they are entertainers as well as opinion makers.
Poor deluded Glenn Beck really believed his nonsense and now bears the full weight of his incipient mental breakdown.
Fox did the right and merciful thing and pulled the plug.
Goodbye goofy Glennie, it wasn't nice knowing you.
