    That Sentence About Glenn Beck

    That Sentence About Glenn Beck

    There is a sentence no one seems to pay attention to in an opinion piece masquerading as reporting  in The NY Times on how Beck and Fox News — supposedly — will be parting ways at the end of the year.

    The rest of the “story” has heartened the left-blogosphere into declaring that this is the end of Beck because he has lost one-third of his viewership.

     Anyway, here is the sentence no one wants to focus on:

    “He still has numbers that just about any cable news host would envy and, with about two million viewers a night, outdraws all his competition combined.”

    I have no idea if Beck and Fox will part ways; the “reporter” for The Times could turn out to be the proverbial broken clock. 

    But if Beck’s sinking numbers signal the end of his television career, what does that mean for “all his competition combined” who do not equal Beck’s numbers collectively?

    Update:  This reminds me of my prior post, The Sarah Palin, The Glenn Beck and The Rush Limbaugh.

    @Laurie, here's the full clip:

    (hint: I never watch him, but he's a traitor is not a viable argument).

    Reasonable. My bad.

    I love Glenn Beck's show. I never miss it. What I like the most is when he brings historians, economists, and other academics on to give even greater intellectual depth to his show. Moreover, Beck, in bringing in the conservative or libertarian adademics, demonstrates his humility because he never claimed to be an intellectual, only a reader of conservative intellectuals. His format therefore, is much preferable to O'Reilly or any other news/opinion show. I get so tired of being forced to listen to O'Reilly's parade of liberals, all spewing their stinking-thinking brand of "progressive" pulp and deconstructionist ideas. O'Reilly then gets into needless shout-fests with these fools because he isn't really intellectually equipped to deal with his liberal guests. He's trying to be "fair and balanced" I know, but it seems like he has more liberals on than conservatives, and when he does bring guests on he never lets them talk! Grrrrrr.
