A Conspiracy Theory Glenn Beck won't like


fullcomment.nationalpos t.com

Beck still has a record many talk-show hosts would envy — almost two million loyal listeners who still tune in daily to harken to his musings. But that’s down by one million in the past year. The network is reportedly close to heaving him overboard, finding his anti-Semitic conspiracy theories an outrage too far.

His accusation that George Soros participated in the Holocaust — “Here’s a Jewish boy helping send the Jews to the death camps” —was particularly offensive. And although he issued a rare apology, the gaffes just keep on coming.

So do you think Fox news is about to dump Glenn Beck because he is hitting too close to home in exposing the planets power games, or are they ready to fire him because he is just becoming too crazy and antagonistic, or is it ultimately because his ratings are going down?

More from the Article:

"Commenting on the fall of Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak, Beck could not see democracy in the making. Rather, he decried a group of “like-minded” organizations and individuals – from the Muslim Brotherhood to U.S. labour unions (with assorted other fellow travelers in a “red-green alliance”) – working to “overthrow and overturn stability.” Last week, he compared reform Judaism to radical Islam".

Basically the question is: Is Glenn Beck a Hero or a Madman? There doesnt seem to be much room for anything in between.

Glenn beck is like Charlie Sheen.... Both could really use a drink now and then!

Honestly, everyone knows that a sober alcoholic is much worse than one who gets some sauce now and then.

If he gets ratings and makes money, any network will keep him. Once the ratings leave, he's gone. He won't be popular forever and he knows it. That's why he's overloading with books, tv show, radio show, "concerts", etc. He won't get fired for getting to close to "the truth".

Skyfloating,

Knowing Fox News, I'd opt for when the ratings slide too far for them to justify his sky-high salary. That's when I believe he'll get the old heave-ho.

As to "hero" or "madman", I have to believe madman. That being said you know the old saying: "A broken clock is still right twice a day".

Cheers!

Beck is a shill whose purpose is quickly being expended and like all shills will be disposed of, figuratively or literally, sometime in the future.

I agree. It's all about money. The networks will milk the ratings [audience count] to sell more expensive advertising and when the ratings go down, so does income. Beck will be gone in a New York minute as soon as he can't produce. I believe that he is an actor playing to a specific market and his rants have little to do with his own opinions and philosophies, much like Howard Stern plays at being rude, crude, and lewd. Given that his latest escapades seeking untapped audience aren't working, he and his blather should be gone soon.

When it comes to the mainstream there is one side or the other, he is a madman or a hero, but in reality he is not a madman and not a hero . he is a man that veiws things unlike what the mainsteam wont people to see it . some of it is true others are not the person listening or veiwing makes the call on what he is .

but when he or someone like him is taken off air of MSM its not really the people its the head guys not liking what is being said maybe because he is getting to close to there reality. they just use there madman angle to make themself look like there doing it for the people to get rid of this madman on there air waves.

Fellow conservatives are also disowning him. As William Kristol, editor of the Weekly Standard and a regular Fox News commentator, writes, “When Glenn Beck rants about the caliphate taking over the Middle East from Morocco to the Philippines, and lists (invents?) the connections between caliphate-promoters and the American left, he brings to mind no one so much as Robert Welch and the John Birch Society. He’s marginalizing himself, just as his predecessors did back in the early 1960s.

OR is Gelnn Beck a Jesuit agent just like the rest of 'em, and they are making it look like they are giving a crap.

Soros is a liberal lobbyist with an agenda. Fox news is a lobbyist with a agenda. They both suck!


Edit to post: Glenn Beck is a nut job that does nothing but prey on the people, by instilling fear into them! He's no better, nor worse than CNN, MSNBC and the like. They are all one in the same..spread fear, propaganda.....and anything else they can use ....use for ratings!

Rupert Murdoch, News Corp.’s uber-boss, and Roger Ailes, the Fox News head, are perturbed. More to the point, the advertisers have spoken. About 300 of them, including such blue-chip outfits as Coca-Cola, Procter & Gamble and WalMart, have pulled their support.

Beck's contract is coming due and it's timed with a ratings slide (he's lost over 25% of the key demographic of 18-25) since his rally in DC. Those two factors, and those factors alone, will be what makes Fox decide to keep him or not. Fox (Murdoch) has made no secret of the fact that he is a businessman and that News Corp is in the business to turn a healthy profit. If the numbers don't work for Beck, he's out the door... no matter what he does or doesn't say. Beck's is an opinion and an entertainment show driven by ratings. Beck being a madman is really irrelevent in the bigger picture. Heck, if his rantings caused ratings to increase, there would be no discussion here. His new contract would be a lock.

I expect Beck to very quietly drop his quote and accept a contract renewal with little-to-no fanfair. There really isn't another option for network TV out there. CNN let him go to try and solidify their 'middle-of-the-road' image and MSNBC or a broadcast network wouldn't touch him with a 10' pole. Sure, he has his radio show and his publishing endevours, but I would imagine that he has probably gotten quite used to his Fox money. He won't go broke if they let him go, but he sure would take a financial hit.

I have a bone to pick with Beck, having come to the same conclusions quite independantly, It bugs me that he after everything,, pulls his punches and essentially says wait for a messiah and as such leaves the novice analytic thinker waiting for Godot or someone like him.
Perhaps a comparison and contrast of, say, the assertion that Orthodox islam and Orthodox Judaism has more similarities. than differences in their respective written doctrines would indeed be illuminating, at least it would be save for the inevitable scrum of shrill obfuscationists intentionally derailing all objective appraisals of the topic for some reason
"Find the best of them and kill him"....

An old business pro like Murdoch is stirring the pot, and probably getting the advertisers to go along with him... this is classic contract negotiation tactics in the entertainment world.

Pulled commercial support because the wonderfully tolerant liberals have campaigned and threatened to boycott adverizers and silence any contrary opinions, in their mercy.
Such is the grand liberal free speech imperitive, free for them to destroy all opposition.

Why do you think his ratings have plummeted?
