1. How could it "consistently be ranked 3rd in ratings" BUT "GB has dominated all of its cable compet
Doesn't make sense.

Ill believe it when I see it.

7. I think that means third overall (shows in any time slot)
And first at 5 pm. I can see that. MSNBC has Tweety on at 5 but re-airs it at 7. CNN has Wolf Blitzer at 5 and he's not what I would call 'strong competition.'

9. So third place of all time slots isn't good enough? Seems like a winner to me.
If I was in it for money and viewers, I'd want to keep him on.
And I not understanding?

13. I don't really understand either
First of all, we'll see if this actually happens. Could be some sort of publicity stunt/ratings ploy. Could be he doesn't want the demands of a daily show or doesn't like the scrutiny/bad press. Could be conflicts with the management. Could be anything, really. We'll see I guess.

19. Probably CBN or TBN...
but my guess he'll go with TBN so he can have his very own golden throne.

2. I've been hearing that this little nazi
wants to start his own channel where he stole the idea from Oprah,

My guess is that he's waiting until the new channel is up and running to announce to the faithful that "YES.... he is the second coming of Christ and all will be well for the believers". Either that or he's become a believer in the movement that says the world will end on May 21 and he's hoping to put some distance between himself and this second coming of Christ.

21. I pass the thanks on to Bill Maher
whom originally accused Glenn of this a few months ago on his show.

Pretty much sums up Beck & his poopshow.

5. So where's he going to go? Maybe one of the
Christian stations? If so, he'll be in good company because most of those televangelists are close to playing with their own poo.

6. From the Wikipedia entry on Father Coughlin....
"Coughlin refused most interview opportunities, and continued to write pamphlets blaming Jews for Communism until his death in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, in 1979, at the age of 88."

Replace the word "Jews" with "Democrats," change the date, change the place and you have Beck's Obit also.

11. Either he's already been told he's gonna get a pink slip, or the writing's on the wall...
Yeah, I think this is one of those "You can't fire me, I quit!" scenarios.

14. Why would Glenn Beck name his production company after a Roman god?
PAGAN! You could just tell that he's the type that sacrifices goats in the dark of night!!!

15. The guy is seriously disturbed and even Fox didn't want him pulling a
Howard Beale.

How can anyone watch him and not realize he is completely off his rocker?
