    Roger Ailes Doesn’t Care If You Say Beck Quit or Got Fired

    4/6/11 at 6:35 PM

    Fox News overlord Roger Ailes says he was ready for Glenn Beck, his fading star, to hit the road. "Half of the headlines say he's been canceled," he told the AP in an interview today. "The other half say he quit. We're pretty happy with both of them." Well then! Beck's contract was up in December, after all, and for the divorce to have been announced this early, apparently it didn't have a shot of getting renewed. "We felt Glenn brought additional information, a unique perspective, a certain amount of passion and insight to the channel and he did," Ailes added. "But that story of what's going on and why America is in trouble today, I think he told that story as well as could be told. Whether you can just keep telling that story or not ... we're not so sure."

    His radio show has turned into the Brigham Young meets Ernest Angely amateur hour.

    The only thing worse than Beck on radio is Jay Sekulow's mentally defective son, Hugh Hewitt, and the guy who hosts Coast To Coast AM.

    It's a shame that your people are unable to gather a regular Radio audience to listen to their screed !

    I hate liberal radio as well. But at least liberal radio keeps their crystal Sedona goddess incense types out of the political discussion. On liberal radio, the whackjobs have a whackjob hour apart from rational folks.

    Neither does Bob Dole.

    I think Beck's problem is he was veering more and more into conspiracy theorist territory, and he was becoming more and more controversial and divisive. Fox News wants the reputation of being a NEWS station; They don't want to be considered on the same level as Alex Jones. He may have been a loud, effective voice for his causes and for Fox, but he got a little full of himself and went a little too far--Much like Joe McCarthy did. When you start accusing pretty much everyone who disagrees with you of being anti-American or being a Communist or a Commie sympathizer or a radical, you've gone too far.

    You guys do realize that he has some serious health issues most notably with his eyes, right? But that couldn't be the reason why he's leaving. Nooooo.

    However, if he is being cancelled due to some outside pressure, then shame on Fox for caving. This makes them cowards.

    Jay Sekulow and his son are pretty crazy but it's fun to listen to their program because their callers are even crazier than they are. I've noticed that the callers are sometimes so conspiratorial, menacing, or crazy that they have to be cut off in mid sentence.
