Is it possible to be too incendiary, even for Fox News?

Well, apparently the answer is yes. Buh-bye Beck!

Beck put a press release on his website yesterday announcing his split with Fox. “I truly believe that America owes a lot to Roger Ailes and FOX News. I cannot repay Roger for the lessons I’ve learned and will continue to learn from him and I look forward to starting this new phase of our partnership.” There's been a lot of chatter about how Beck's TV ratings have been in decline and advertisers were staying away from the program. Even with the drop in ratings Beck had the third highest rated program on cable. 

Beck says his production company will be working with FOX News Channel developing and producing a variety of television projects for air on the FOX News Channel (FNC) as well as content for other platforms including FOX News’ digital properties. Joel Cheatwood, SVP/Development at FOX News, will be joining Beck on April 24th. Part of his role as EVP will be to manage the partnership and serve as a liaison with FOX News.

Don't be fooled-he is once again on the tip of a newer, more inflammatory, cable news network spear. Please to allow Ivory Coast News Channel [ICNC] to introduce the new foundation of our rebuilding country..Glenn Beck. [insert 'Applesauce' sign here].

GB: "Hi, this is Glenn Beck along with my co-anchor Keith Olbermann, color commentary specialist, Dennis Miller, and field correspondents Ann Coulter and Nancy Grace. For being in such a poverty ridden area, we are amazed to discover small live mice/juvenile rats are disappearing at an alarming rate..Take it away Nancy/Ann/Dennis-whomever isn't actively devouring prey."
