4. Never seen him before. He is certifiable, which makes him
perfect right-wing, teabagger, faux material. So don't see why he is going.

14. I swear, he will become a classic.
Hoard all the Beck tapes you can find.
One day soon they will be treasures of the insanity of this decade.
The word "beck" will in Oxford dictionary, meaning "insanely delusional in a laughable way"

Fox would drop a show just for reasons of insanity or Fox News would be off the air.

Peace,

11. Advertisers wouldn't air their commercials on his show!!! Hey, did we do that?????
NEW YORK (AP) Glenn Beck's talk show is being dropped by the Fox News Channel after sinking in the ratings and suffering financially due to an advertiser boycott.

Fox and Beck's company, Mercury Radio Arts, said Wednesday they will stay in business creating other projects for Fox television and digital, starting with some documentaries Beck is preparing.

....


More than 400 Fox advertisers told the company they did not want their commercials on Beck's show. Beck's advertisers were dominated by financial services firms, many touting gold as an investment.

12. Because Fox is losing money
And the one thing they hate more than the left wing, is losing money

It's conservatism's Achilles heel if you will

17. Because Fox is losing money
Fox News is part of News Corps.... which loses money every quarter and is kept afloat by Murdoch.

19. Not a very good business model now, is it?
The seeds of their destruction are woven into the DNA of the company itself

18. Soros wins again!
The evil George Soros was out to get Beck thrown off the air. Glen was the only one to see through the plan of the evil genius who is leading us into the NWO.

With out Beck, we're doomed! NWO here we come!

20. Why Is Glenn Beck's Fox News Show Ending?
* He wants to spend more time with his family of marmots?

* His new sponsors Klaxstons Krispy Krackers wanted to pay their advertising fees in linen and pillow cases?

* The fox network refuses to broadcast from his bunker deep within a cave in the Yucca Mountains.
