This talk has been out there for a week and it’s now finalized. This is big news on every blog in the ethersphere; ours and the commies, both.
I”m sure that Van Jones and his Color of Change is planning a huge rally now and the spin will be that THEY won and pushed Beck out. Too bad too, because I know this was a business decision that Jones had nothing to do with.
It’ll be interesting to see what new plans Beck has and how Fox will fill in the time slot and the obvious void that will occur without Beck. This is going to cost Fox a lot of viewers, in the short term, at least and during his 5pm slot.
I do think that Beck is becoming too evangelical for a news channel – not that evangelical is a bad thing, it’s not. I”m a pretty religious person (something I keep pretty private) and I’ve noticed that Beck is leaning more and more to the ‘end of days’ evangelism that many people agree with and welcome. He’s given me plenty to think about and plan for. But I’m not sure that a news channel is the appropriate venue for that kind of thing.
I’ve learned a great deal from Beck and I know that he’s not going to be gone. We’ll just have to wait and see where he pops up next and what pops up with him.
