187. Actually, what is truly a " load of bull " is you comparing Glenn Beck along side Bill Maher.
Firstly, Beck was a certified wacko who used his show to promote racism, hatred, falsehoods and tin-foil-hat Apocalyptic end-world theories. Beck believed he was untouchable and began crossing the line from conservative political opinion straight into wacko fringe theories. The cancellation of many sponsors ( petitioned by a people's campaign to stop advertising on Beck's show ) was the reason Beck was released by Fox. Of course Fox won't admit such.

As for Bill Maher, he was released because of a single comment he made one evening while discussing the characterization of 9/11 terrorists as cowards, Maher stated, ..We have been the cowards, lobbing cruise missiles from 2,000 miles away. Thats cowardly. Staying in the airplane when it hits the building, say what you want about it, its not cowardly.." Maher's comment ( early post 9/11 ) pretty well sealed Maher's fate and gave BushCo. and the neocon intelligentsia the green light to campaign against Maher by branding him as anti-american.

Cenk refused MSNBC's new salary offer because he viewed their offer as payoff to silence him. He chose to reject their offer and left MSNBC. Give Cenk a year or so time with his new show on Current and we'll see where he is then. Nobody ever claimed that Cenk was ever in the same ballpark as Maher since Cenk is not a comedian and quite frankly, its an insult for you to even suggest Cenk in the same breath alongside wackjob, racist Beck. That comparison ( even in abstract form ) is real bull.
