Glenn Beck Leaving Fox News  Reply with quote  

I feel really bad about admitting this, but I am actually really relieved that Glenn Beck is giving up his TV show. I'm a conservative republican and everything, but ever since that guy showed up on Fox News I started getting really embarrassed at the way he was conducting himself as the "voice" of the conservative movement. I'm not saying he doesn't have the same rights as anybody else to express his views to a large audience and get paid for it, but some of his ideas were just WAY too far out there for me to be comfortable with as "mainstream" conservative ideals. Thing is, I can't say this to any of his fans without being accused of "siding with teh liberals." I am not a liberal, not even close, but don't think he was positively contributing to the national dialogue. Don't get me wrong, he's just as batshit insane as Keith Olbermann, whom I despise just as deeply, but at the very least Olbermann isn't the television standard bearer for the left.

Anyway, bottom line is that I'm happy he'll still be successful on the radio, but I'm glad he isn't going to be on television much longer. If this makes me a "bad republican," I don't give a shit. You have to draw a line somewhere.

So, nobody's gonna miss him when he's gone-
there's probably a song in there somewhere... Twisted Evil

I've said from the beginning that somebody should put videos of his crazy with that other (I don't mean Jeff) Beck's most famous song-
anybody up for the challenge? Wink

I'm just afraid of where he's going. I know to avoid Fox News, but what if CNN picks him up to boost ratings?
