3. The point was made on MSNBC
that advertisers probably didn't want to participate in any end-times scenario that Beck constantly trumpets. If Armageddon is just around the corner, who needs a car or a Big Mac or Viagra?

But for the government shutdown possibility, not a bad news day.

10. Bingo!
That and the fact that many of us boycotted the products sold by Beck advertisers. A small bit of hope in an otherwise hopeless situation; that we do have some power (however minimal it may be) in what the corporate media is constantly feeding us.

15. Come On Now
Viagra sales would surge creating a black market if Armageddon was just around the corner. :)

6. When ever a crime is committed
follow the money. And the Republicans know Beck is so far in the fringe he alienates normal people let alone attracting new ones. The less than 1% of Americans who pay attention to Beck are voting for anyone with an R after their names, even Goering or Stalin.

9. Should we be celebrating this?
Should we sing; "Ding Dong the Witch is dead?"

11. I was particularly amused by...
...the Google ad that showed up on this clip:

"Goldline - The only gold company Glenn Beck recommends."

16. me too
Yeah I got a gold advertisement as well. Perhaps Beck will now have enough time to be able to do a few more gold infomercials and maybe even a few dehydrated food ones, too. Haha this is going to be great. Beck's failure is yet another trophy example for epic failure on fox.

12. Are some Americans actually
looking past the fog? If many watched "INSIDE JOB" they would wake up and realize the distractions, like Beck, are a part of the ruse.
Beck,IMO, is insane.
