Victory: Glenn Beck Leaving His Fox News Show…
I can personally attest to Media Matters celebrating Glenn’s leaving via my email from the source:
This message is a long time coming, and it feels good to finally tell you the news. Yesterday, Fox News announced that later this year, toxic talk show host Glenn Beck would “transition off” from his nightly hour of hate, falsehoods, extremism, and absurd conspiracy theories.
We’ve been able to continually monitor and fact-check Beck and his relentless tide of smear campaigns and lies.
We’ve been able to make the case that Beck has a dangerous impact on the national conversation — and we’ve been able to ensure that Fox’s promotion of Beck has had real-life consequences for the network’s credibility and its advertising dollars. Beck’s show has lost nearly 1 million viewers in the last year, and more than 300 advertisers since its debut.
It took two years too long for this to happen and the fight isn’t over: Fox News and its allies in the right-wing media will continue to distort and undermine the political process. The right-wing noise machine still injects political attacks and falsehoods into our national debate through outlets like Fox News and talk radio.
Here’s the kicker – give us bucks to dismantle conservative speech:

Liberals predictably took their shots at a host whose ratings dominance was never even close to being challenged by competitors at left-leaning networks.
“Glenn Beck is leaving Fox. Where’s he gonna go? The Oprah Network?” tweeted The View co-host Joy Behar. She added: “I give him 20 minutes alone in a room with Rosie” O’Donnell.
Some left-wing activists suggested that their campaign of intimidation targeting Beck’s advertisers had contributed to the decision not to renew his 5 p.m. show.
TV advertising consultant Adam Armbruster, who has appeared regularly on Fox News, called Beck “controversial, a real lightning rod for many advertisers.”
Advertisers, he observed, often prefer to avoid anything controversial.
