Perhaps I wasn't watching, but I was surprised by the announcement by Glen Beck and Fox management that his current daily political program on Fox will come to a close by the end of the year.
I have been a fan of Beck for a number of years as a radio personality and later as a television commentator. His programming on Fox has been provocative, edgy, entertaining and in my view, insightful. He has presented the big picture and has been able to connect the dots on historic and current political movements in this country. I value his presentations and his point of view.
He is passionate about his beliefs and occasionally used confrontational language that allowed the left to criticize his statements. But the left will celebrate his departure and I regret that the situation will give aid and comfort to people that, in my opinion, are harming this country.
I have no doubt that Glenn will reformat his content for other delivery channels and continue to irritate the left and bring the truth to his viewers. Both Glenn and Roger Ailes, Fox News Chairman, said that Glenn will continue to provide projects and specials for the Fox organization.
