    Glenn Beck is engaging in a bit of revisionst history concerning his Fox News exit. At an April 27 event at New York University, Beck portrayed his departure as self-initiated and suggested that Fox CEO Roger Ailes pleaded with him to stay, explaining:

    “If you stay in it too long, you become Norma Desmond. I remember feeling, ‘If you do not leave now, you won’t leave with your soul intact.’”

    “At the end, when we were leaving, it was a long process. Roger said to me, ‘You’re not going to leave.’ And I said, ‘I am.’ And he said, ‘Nobody does,’ meaning leave television….And I said, ‘I’m fortunate because I haven’t been in it that long.’ I knew what this big, huge Fox empire brought to the table, and I had to leave before I became too enamored of that.”

    A Fox News spokesperson issued a sharp rebuke contradicting Beck’s claim, instead citing Glenn Beck’s advertiser losses as the major cause of Beck’s exit, saying:

    “Glenn Beck wasn’t trying to save his soul, he was trying to save his ass. Advertisers fled his show and even Glenn knows what that means in our industry. Yet, we still tried to give him a soft landing. Guess no good deed goes unpunished.”

    Indeed. Following a series of grassroots efforts beginning in July 2009, around the time Beck accused President Obama of being a “racist,” advertisers began fleeing his Fox News show. A Media Matters study revealed that the number of paid advertisements during Glenn Beck’s show plummeted and never recovered as a result of those grassroots efforts.

    Advertiser rates for Glenn Beck’s Fox News program suffered as well. According to an analysis of industry data, the same ad, from the same advertiser cost between three and six times more to run on other comparable Fox News programs than it did to run on Beck’s program.

    While I was active in the StopBeck effort, detractors and even Beck himself would dismiss the effects of the advertiser losses. I long maintained that the losses were in fact costing Fox News money and were severely limiting the viability of Beck’s program. And, now Fox News has all but confirmed it.

    Onward!

    LEFT wing priorities:
    1) Support Ab.ortionists like Kermit Gosnell and say Planned Parenthood makes you blush.
    2) Make it so that NO ONE in the USA can own a gun.
    3) PROTECT private jet owners from beings TAXED.
    4) Make sure that no one can believe in God and the Bible.
    5) RAID Social Security, Medicare and medicaid to make it look like they have a surplus. When in fact there was NO SURPLUS.
    6)Taking 716 BILLION dollars from MEDICARE and then lying about it.
    7) promote racism TO THE MAX, along with bigotry and general backward thinking
    8) worship lunatics like Chris Matthews, Ed Schultz and Rachel Maddow and then send them all money as well.
    9) Attend the DNC Comedy Convention where GOD IS TAKEN OUT THEIR PLATFORM.
    10) watch msnBS–the propaganda arm of the left wing (bias 24/7)
    11) ruin the economy by spending big, implementing massive taxes and regulations some that should NEVER BE DONE IN OBAMA INDUCED recession or depression.
    12) PROTECTING ISLAMIC JIHAD TERRORISTS AND THEIR AL QUEDA BACKERS.
    13) Pretending that HIGH UNEMPLOYMENT is good for the economy.
    14) Ignoring the fact that 1 in 5 households is now on FOOD STAMPS.
    15) Tax Hard Working Americans out the wazoo
    16) Spend like drunken sailors
    17) Obstruction, obstruction, obstruction

    @Jeff

    @PAULG YOU MAKE A COMPLAINT ABOUT BLAMING BUSH OVER 4+ YEARS…. THEN TURN RIGHT AROUND AND TALK ABOUT THE CLINTON RECORD…….HYPOCRITE!!!

    WHEN A “TOUGH GUY” TALKS ABOUT BALLS AND STONES, USUALLY MEANS THEY ARE COMPLAINING ABOUT THEIR OWN SHORT COMINGS.

    @PAUL G IM PARTISAN?? AGAIN HYPOCRISY ON EVERY LEVEL IN YOUR COMMENT.
    MY CONCLUSIONS?? WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? CAN YOU READ? MY COMMENT WAS IN RESPONSE TO A DUMB COMMENT POSTED ABOUT A “Terror Attack” IN BOSTON WHEN THE INDIVIDUAL ACTED AS IF WE WERE SO MUCH SAFER UNDER A REPUBLICAN. IM PARTISAN?……YOU ARE A HYPOCRITE.
    _____________________________________________________________________________

    Why should I care when your pathetic partisan claim “Two amateur lone wolf bombers at a marathon” is a response to another post,,not too mention the absurdity of more than one lone wolf at a single terrorist attack,,If 911 happened under Pres Obama,,would that be 20 lone wolf??

    All those CAPS,,exclamation points and hyperbole,,I think you are compensating,,not for your lack of manhood,,rather for your lack of a coherent argument…Why should I ignore your post because it was a response to another post you deem “DUMB”? You posted “over 3,000 Americans died in one day, 4 planes hijacked all died on board, 3 WTC buildings destroyed in NYC, Pentagon was attacked…….All under Bush Cheney and Republican majorities in the House and Senate.” I replied “Liberals still blaming the weak economy and high unemployment on Pres Bush more than 4 years out,,yet you have the stones to blame Pres. Bush,,in office less than 9 months,, for 911 after Pres Clinton had bin laden in his sights and CHOSE NOT to take him out,,worse multiple cells of terrorist entered,,planed and even took flight lessons under the Clinton Administrations watch,,even worse knowing the World Trade Center was a priority target of bin laden’s,,since it was first attacked during Pres Clinton’s first term…”

    That’s a few months versus 4 years,,not seeing the “HYPOCRISY”,,why don’t you refute what I posted on it’s merits,,for a change??
