Glenn Beck Cancelled By Fox

I found it rather humorous when Glenn Beck said that Donald Trump was making him “a little uncomfortable recently” Wow what a revelation. Glenn Beck has a limit?

Apparently so does Fox. Ratings didn’t support the time slot. Buh-bye Glenn. We’ll still do business with you, just not where we’re going to lose money.

The far right loves FOX. The far left villifies it.

Then there are those of us who are always just watching the money trail. Rupert Murdoch doesn’t have a “right-wing agenda” as many liberals are apt so say. Murdoch has a long history of identifying a niche and providing content to cater to and own the niche. There is big money to be made there.

Murdoch’s made a lot of money catering to the scared and uncomfortable and xenophobes. Fomenting Overt Xenophobia

So if you don’t like Bill O’Reilly or Sean Hannity, Mike Huckabee or Gretchen Carlson just don’t watch them. Tuning them out will get them off the air. Glenn Beck proves it. Even the far-right couldn’t handle it. (or didn’t he go far enough?)

The next time you tune into Fox and you consider yourself a progressive, liberal, whatever but you “just watch to see what they are going to say next”, you too are feeding the monster under the bed.

  1. Actually, you only feed the monster if you’re a Neilsen family, or if you buy the products sold in commercial breaks. Other than that, there’s no way for them to tell you’re watching.

    Correct me if I’m wrong.

      Seriously have you ever met a Nielsen family? No, because they are all in Dunedin, FL and Radcliff, KY.
      (apparently the pulse of America runs through those two towns, and might explain high ratings for certain programs)
      Nielsen is going the way of the dodo, especially with the advent of digital tv.
      That cable box isn’t a one-way delivery system anymore. Just like cookies track your online habits your cable operator is monitoring media traffic.
      (though they claim not to, but it’s one of the many reasons why the switch was made from analog to digital).
