Glenn Beck leaving his Fox News Channel show

AP

NEW YORK Glenn Beck is leaving his Fox News Channel show later this year.

The network and Beck's company, Mercury Radio Arts, announced the departure on Wednesday. Fox and the company said they will work together to create other projects for Fox News television and digital.

Beck became a sensation almost immediately after jumping from HLN to Fox for an afternoon program. Lately his viewership has declined. He had faced an advertiser boycott that limited the amount of companies that wanted to be a part of his show after saying President Barack Obama had a "deep-seated hatred for white people."

Beck said that he "cannot repay (Fox News chief) Roger (Ailes) for the lessons I've learned and will continue to learn from him and I look forward to starting this new phase of our partnership."

10. The sideshow geek show eventually becomes tiresome?
Who knew? Besides Morton Downey, Jr. and a seemingly endless procession of imitators and wannabes, that is. I guess the Fabulous Free Market started to get jittery when Beck called out enough crazoids that people were getting shot to finally put the kibosh on this nuttery.

I do like how it all comes down to one comment about Obama being the font of all Beck's ills. Like, if he hadn't said that Obama had a deep-seated hatred for white people, none of this would have come to pass. Nitwits.

All the self serving, self indulgent, self arousing, avaricious, stroking causes blindness (so the RW frequently touts)........oh wait.
