An event worthy of note… snake eating snake…
… any kingdom divided against itself is laid waste; and any city or house divided against itself will not stand. If satan casts out satan, he is divided against himself; how then will his kingdom stand???
The end of Glenn Beck.
SAGGING ratings, a string of damaging remarks and an exodus of advertisers have combined to end Glenn Beck’s controversial tenure on US cable network Fox News.
The news follows weeks of speculation about Beck’s future, as a campaign to pressure advertisers to boycott the pundit’s daily 5pm slot gathered pace, while Beck himself was embroiled in battles erupting from his conspiracy theories involving the likes of George Soros and Barack Obama.
An elliptical statement by Beck’s production company and Fox News said: ”Glenn intends to transition off of his daily program, the third highest rated in all of cable news, later this year.”
But the statement also put a face-saving spin on the decision, quoting Fox News’s chief executive Roger Ailes: ”Glenn Beck is a powerful communicator, a creative entrepreneur and a true success by anybody’s standards. I look forward to continuing to work with him.”
Beck’s show has been broadcast each weekday on Fox News since December 2009.
The announcement was greeted with joy among Beck’s phalanx of critics on the left.
The show’s peak of popularity coincided with the rise of the Tea Party, and his trademark blend of paranoia and conspiracy attracted a wide following, culminating in a ”Restoring Honour” rally on Washington last August that attracted about 100,000 people.
Among his eyebrow-raising claims was that Mr Obama was ”a guy who has a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture … This guy is, I believe, a racist.”
“But these enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and slay them in my presence.”
