Glenn Beck Moves to Sci Fi Channel



NEW YORK Landing on his feet just hours after his program was dropped by Fox News Channel, controversial host Glenn Beck announced today that he had just inked a new contract to join the cable network Syfy, formerly known as the Sci Fi Channel.

Speaking at a press conference announcing the move, Mr. Beck told reporters, The best part of this deal is that I wont need to change my format at all.

Mr. Beck said that his program was a perfect fit for a schedule of programming packed with aliens, paranoid conspiracy theories and alternative universes.

But the TV hosts enthusiasm was tempered somewhat by Syfy spokesperson Tracy Klugian, who told reporters, We warned Glenn that if hes going to be a good fit for Syfy hes going to have to tone down his act a bit. Some of the stuff he did on Fox is a little too out there for us.

"Some of the stuff he did on Fox is a little too out there for us. says SYFY spokesperson Tracy Klugian.

Doesn't that say it all. Is this satire?

edit: question answered... obvious at site
