After a long, disgraceful, reckless, yet lucrative run at Fox News, emo-rad Glenn Beck signs off for the last time from Fox News today. In his say-anything-to-get-his-name-in-the-papers strategy, he managed to even offend the gargoyles at FNS: Roger Aisles and Rupert Murdoch. That's saying something.
It also says something that a progressive boycott was responsible for driving 300 advertisers from his show, and that his show, while successful in cable terms, was leaking viewers on a daily, weekly basis. He lost up to 2 million viewers in the last year and a half.
It all began to slide when he called President Obama a "racist" saying the president doesn't like "white people." That was a bridge too far - even for Fox News who trades in devisive race and liberal baiting every day.
