Glenn Beck's Fox show dropped

By DAVID BAUDER, AP Television Writer
6 mins ago

NEW YORK – Fox News Channel on Wednesday said it was dropping Glenn Beck's afternoon talk show, which has sunk in the ratings and suffered financially due to an advertiser boycott.

Fox and Beck said the show will end later this year.

Fox News and Beck's company, Mercury Radio Arts, said they will work together to create other projects for Fox television and digital.
Beck was a quick burn on Fox News Channel. Almost immediately after joining the network in January 2009, he doubled the ratings at his afternoon time slot. Fans found his conservative populism entertaining, while Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert described Beck's "crank up the crazy and rip off the knob" moments.

He was popular with Tea Party activists and drew thousands of people to the National Mall in Washington last August for a "restoring honor" rally.

Yet some of his statements were getting him in trouble, and critics appealed to advertisers to boycott his show last summer after Beck said President Barack Obama had "a deep-seated hatred for white people."

More than 400 Fox advertisers told the company they did not want their commercials on Beck's show.

Viewers also began turning away. Beck's 5 p.m. ET show averaged 2.7 million viewers during the first three months of 2010, and was at just under 2 million for the same period this year, the Nielsen Co. said. His decline was sharper among younger viewers sought by advertisers.

Increasingly, the show began to be dominated by Beck standing in front of a chalk board giving his theories about the world's troubles.
However, Beck has built a powerful brand for himself with a radio show and digital properties. A key Fox executive, Joel Cheatwood, is joining Mercury Radio Arts later this month.

"I truly believe that America owes a lot to Roger Ailes and Fox News," Beck said in a statement. "I cannot repay Roger 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."

One of Beck's most prominent critics — David Brock, founder of the liberal watchdog Media Matters for America — said that "the only surprise is that it took Fox News months to reach this decision."

According to the article ha said that Obama has a deep seeded hate for white people. I wouldn't go that far, I think Obama was brought up in a poor family situation and was raised in a radical environment and this colored heavily his views on what America is and whether he likes it or not.

But Beck did go that far, Democrat-style race baiting, and the boycott hurt ad revenue on an already low rated program in a bad time slot.

This does beg an interesting question, though, of where Fox News goes from here.

Do they strive to earn a seat back at the adult table, and put somebody seriously credible in place?

Do they put another "commentator" that they won't count as their ever-slimming news programing?

Or will they once again try to straddle the line between serious and unserious.

Or will they follow MSNBC's lead, and give a liberal his own TV show in enemy territory.

Really? Her bio says she is smart? Holy hell man, let's put her in charge then!:spock:

Rachel Maddow

"A graduate of Castro Valley High School in Castro Valley, California, Maddow earned a degree in public policy from Stanford University in 1994.[15] At graduation she was awarded the John Gardner Fellowship. She was also the recipient of a Rhodes Scholarship and began her postgraduate study in 1995 at Lincoln College, Oxford. In 2001, she earned a Doctor of Philosophy (DPhil) in politics from Oxford University. Her thesis is titled HIV/AIDS and Health Care Reform in British and American Prisons (supervisor: Dr Lucia Zedner). She was the first openly gay American to win a Rhodes scholarship."

Yeah it does, and I'd say she's pretty damn smart. Now since the post I replied to compared her to Sarah Palin I add SP's education bio as a bonus.

Sarah Palin

"After graduating from high school, Palin enrolled at the University of Hawaii at Hilo. Shortly after arriving in Hawaii, Palin switched to Hawaii Pacific University in Honolulu for a semester in the fall of 1982. She transferred to North Idaho College, a community college in Coeur d'Alene, for the spring and fall semesters of 1983. (In June 2008, the Alumni Association of NIC gave her its Distinguished Alumni Achievement Award.)

In 1984, Palin won the Miss Wasilla beauty pageant. She finished third in the Miss Alaska pageant, playing flute in the talent portion of the contest, and receiving both the Miss Congeniality award and a college scholarship.
She attended the University of Idaho in Moscow in the fall of 1984 and spring of 1985, and attended Matanuska-Susitna College in Alaska in the fall of 1985. Palin returned to the University of Idaho in the spring of 1986, and received her bachelor's degree in communications with an emphasis in journalism in 1987."

I am sooooo impressed with her education! Like I said if she is so smart why don't you guys put her in charge of something, other than Fairytale Land TV, and see what happens. All that education and all she has is a crummy little tv show on an even crummier network. Sarah Palin's educational tract looks very similar to my own. Probably like a lot of average Americans. Look where that has gotten her. City Council, Mayor, Governor, VP Candidate, Book Deals, TV Shows, political clout with a large number of Americans- more than RM's total monthly viewership i'd venture to guess.

Now tell me Frank, which education was the better investment? Madcow doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of the influence that Sarah wields. How does Sarah's ass taste? Like wild mountain honey I bet....

Neither SP's nor RM's ass would taste good. I'm not into that kinda stuff.

You are giving too much credit to SP's "political clout." The rest is a product of highly financed marketing. She is referred to mostly as a joke. A successfully marketed joke ala Paris Hilton, but a joke nevertheless. That said, if you are asking me which one I would like to spend a one-nighter with, of course it would be SP. But if the question is which one I would love to have in my circle of friends, it would be RM, hands down.

The biggest thing Fox, a television network, can do for Beck is give him his own show. What is bigger? Giving him two shows.

Whatever Beck and Fox's collaboration becomes, it will be less than it is currently. Shouldn't that be obvious?

Look below. I highlighted the reason Obama's grades should not even be in question. Unless the Right insists on polluting the scene with even more unimportant and unnecessary wedge issues.

"In late 1988, Obama entered Harvard Law School. He was selected as an editor of the Harvard Law Review at the end of his first year, and president of the journal in his second year. During his summers, he returned to Chicago, where he worked as a summer associate at the law firms of Sidley Austin in 1989 and Hopkins & Sutter in 1990. After graduating with a Juris Doctor (J.D.) magna cum laude from Harvard in 1991, he returned to Chicago. Obama's election as the first black president of the Harvard Law Review gained national media attention and led to a publishing contract and advance for a book about race relations, which evolved into a personal memoir. The manuscript was published in mid-1995 as Dreams from My Father.

University of Chicago Law School and civil rights attorney In 1991, Obama accepted a two-year position as Visiting Law and Government Fellow at the University of Chicago Law School to work on his first book. He then served as a professor at the University of Chicago Law School for twelve years—as a Lecturer from 1992 to 1996, and as a Senior Lecturer from 1996 to 2004—teaching constitutional law."

GWB was nothing but a mouthpiece for Cheney and the others who were pushing the Neo-Con agenda. Being dumb was a prerequisite for such a role.

If you are referring to W's "Ivy league" education it was dubious at best.

I have big problems with Olbermann's participation in Hillary-bashing to strengthen Obama's chances. But to say that he was not critical of Obama afterwards is naive.

We as the American people still don't know alot about Obama. We do know more about our President because of Beck. Its obvious to many that you don't like the truth what Beck dug up.

Glenn Beck exposed one issue: that an advisor to Obama had years earlier been involved with a far-left, kiddie socialist group.

Name another one that Beck taught us about Obama.

Look below. I highlighted the reason Obama's grades should not even be in question. Unless the Right insists on polluting the scene with even more unimportant and unnecessary wedge issues.

"In late 1988, Obama entered Harvard Law School. He was selected as an editor of the Harvard Law Review at the end of his first year, and president of the journal in his second year. During his summers, he returned to Chicago, where he worked as a summer associate at the law firms of Sidley Austin in 1989 and Hopkins & Sutter in 1990. After graduating with a Juris Doctor (J.D.) magna cum laude from Harvard in 1991, he returned to Chicago. Obama's election as the first black president of the Harvard Law Review gained national media attention and led to a publishing contract and advance for a book about race relations, which evolved into a personal memoir. The manuscript was published in mid-1995 as Dreams from My Father.

University of Chicago Law School and civil rights attorney In 1991, Obama accepted a two-year position as Visiting Law and Government Fellow at the University of Chicago Law School to work on his first book. He then served as a professor at the University of Chicago Law School for twelve years—as a Lecturer from 1992 to 1996, and as a Senior Lecturer from 1996 to 2004—teaching constitutional law."
Did you know even Harvard has grade inflation? I still wanna know if he had the grades and test scores as the others that get chosen to Harvard. Like 700's and 750's on the SAT and 34 on the ACT.
He certainly isn't very smart about economics or how business need to run to survive. Then again he went to Harvard—and not their business school.

The way you get into Harvard is by taking the LSAT. Only people who do excellent on the LSAT -- like better than 98% of everyone else who took it -- and they have great grades from good schools, get into Harvard Law School.

Very inadequate because he still has this fantasy of "let's all kumbaya" and is willing to give up points and agenda that the voters voted him in for.

It is not surprising to see you spout a perverted view of education, Dallas Chief.

Now I am reaping the rewards of having that little piece of paper that says Bachelor of... The difference between you and me is that I was not some bottom feeding carp that my professors just easily hooked while trolling the classroom. I took what they said and coupled that with "real life" and formed my own opinions along the way. Sure studying away and going to a number of fancy schools makes you look oh so smart. In the end though, most (not all) of those types are just spewing forth the garbage that has been dumped into them rather than some genuinely unique ideas and opinions.

You think your little history degree from Iowa means dick out there in the real world. Give it a shot pal, I'll see you in Des Moines in a few months while you are ringing up my copy of Kilplinger's at Barnes and Noble. I'd love to see how much you actually value it down the road when you are working at the Elder Law Journal as a copy editor. But seriously, good luck to you.

But seriously, you're not bitter. And seriously, you don't make up attributes for other people (parents paid for college, fancy schools, origins of opinions) so you can tear down your target.

Listen, if you value education, why would you say things like, "Now tell me Frank, which education was the better investment? Madcow doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of the influence that Sarah wields." It's the type of confused phrase that adds up to mean something very strange. You are saying that by noting someone's influence on other people, we can determine how strong an investment their education was. The education someone gets is relegated to servant status of their power. It's a perverted idea of both power and education. Is power really the aim of education? And is power supposed to be something greater than anything else an education might give you?

Did you not read my question? I asked you what the Beck show has taught people about Obama, not ACORN and not SEIU or any other group that supports Obama.

Obama doesn't "keep associations" with SEIU or ACORN. He's not a member, he's not affiliated, he doesn't campaign for him, they're not some branch of the Obama team anymore than the NRA is a branch of John McCain.

So no, stories on SEIU and ACORN don't tell us about Obama. And I mentioned Van Jones' involvement with a kiddie Marxist group that occured when he was fresh out of law school, the type you characterize as "love of the communist party" which is completely made up.

This is why Beck is a problem. Because people like you watch his show and think that they understand something about Obama now. Not really looking like it, huh, Chief Henry?

Heh.

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/lawrence-odonnell-show-business-beck-will-end-up-like-larry-king/

A smug Lawrence O’Donnell appeared on his show last night to do what he does best — bash Glenn Beck. And during his tirade and “I told you so” monologue, he decided to start talking about ratings. Beck’s ratings are very good, he admitted, but they used to be better. That’s true. Around Beck’s 8/28 rally, his ratings skyrocketed to unsustainable levels. No one expected them to stay. So the “decline” Larry’s talking about is really a return to normal. But here‘s what’s interesting: Beck’s “normal” is almost twice as good at 5pm as O‘Donnel’s ratings at the primetime slot of 8pm. See Tuesday’s ratings from TV Newser (http://www.mediabistro.com/tvnewser/the-scoreboard-tuesday-april-5_b60706#more-60706):

I hate to break the news to you sport, but yes, that is the way the world works. There are those those very select few that get into the club without that slip of paper, but they are few and far between. That's why the majority of us suffer through it- so we can get out into the world and make more and more money. More money= more power. More education= more sitting around thinking how fucking smart you are and waiting for everybody else to notice.

So yeah, I am a reasonable guy and want to apologize for tearing you down earlier. I think you are probably a pretty sharp dude, you must be if you got into law school. Just remember to keep it all in perspective of what really matters- God (if that is your thing),Family, Friends, Coutntry, Honor.
