Glenn Beck’s Fox News Show is Over

Glenn BeckBut… what will Jon Stewart talk about on weekday nights? Glenn Beck is leaving his popular Fox News show, putting an end to his controversial but extremely attention-getting run on the Glenn Beck Program.

Beck will still work with Fox News through his company Mercury Radio Arts. He joined Fox at the start of 2009 and immediately doubled ratings in his time slot (and gave left-wing pundits too much to talk about). But his energetic persona has managed to create a lot of controversy, too. He accused the President of the United States of racism and lost Fox News approximately 400 advertising agreements (the number of advertisers who refused to support Beck's program with their ads).

Fox News channel chairman and CEO Roger Ailes had very little to say on the topic. “Half of the headlines say he’s been canceled… the other half say he quit. We’re pretty happy with both of them.”

What the hell does that mean? We’ve no idea, but good luck trying to get a straight answer out of Fox News on any day of the week.

FOX News Channel Commentators Completely Out of Control

Barack Obama has long been tainted with overtones of right-wing political agendas, often offering up their own slightly skewed viewpoint of political officials. Their commentators are often good for a laugh, but in recent months the channel has done everything possible to discredit President Barack Obama. It seems FOX News still can’t get over the fact that he won the election - despite their repeated “mistakes” of calling him “Osama” and all their attempts to deny that he was even born in the U.S.

made an appearance on Tuesday’s Fox & Friends to give his opinion: that the President is a racist. To be more clear, he stated that Obama has “a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture.”

“The guy is, I believe, a racist,” said Beck.

O’Reilly and Colbert to Appear on Each Other’s Shows

Stephen Colbert If you’ve never watched The Colbert Report, what are you waiting for?
