Glenn Beck -- Show Cancelled
As if he's not creepy enough, he has his camera guy pan in unbelievably up close so the rotten creep is right in your face. Beck's such a true asshole, there's just something about him that would make even a gentleman want to take Beck's glasses, stick them in his mouth, and then pound him with a powerful upper cut to the jaw. He wears the "hit me" sign well.
Every day it's the same old stuff -- something terrible is about to happen any day now. All the bad guys from radical Islam to socialists, communists, labor unions are all in cahoots together waiting for the right moment which might have already happened. George Soros is the arch villain who Beck makes look capable of simply using his wealth to buy the world and somehow a little shit of a black communist radical, Van Jones, who was known only to the extreme left academic elite circles were it not for Barack Obama appointing him Green Czar, is some highly powerful leader of a communist insurrection. Well, George Soros is a big danger, but the paranoid rantings of talk show nuts like Beck enhance his notoriety far more than Soros deserves. Van Jones is a would be nobody, but thanks to Beck harping on him on a nightly basis has now made Jones a far bigger phenomenon that he ever could have dreamt of being without Beck.
Beck has almost single handedly destroyed the credibility of Fox News. Always under attack for presenting the conservative viewpoint, Beck provides Fox's critics a "see there...see this is what they're all about." For all the quality people like Brit Hume, Chris Wallace, John Roberts, Carl Cameron, and Catherine Herridge among others are all top rate pros of the highest standard, but when one appears in a segment on Beck's trash show, they are at least complicit in supporting whatever the topic du jour is. Beck is a master of taking things out of context and twisting them into supporting his warped notions.
So in his departure, we wish him nothing but the worst and hope he will be held to account for everything he's distorted, misrepresented, or created irrational fear about. May the people he's misrepresented and lied about get their pound of flesh as worthy justice is always a good thing.
This is a sick man who has no place on mature media. Here's hoping the remaining radio stations who carry him see the wisdom of pulling the plug.
Meanwhile, Fox has a real mission ahead of them to restore their credibility and distance themselves as far from this surly little cretin as they possibly can.
