SNAP: Glenn Beck’s Fox show ending
Glenn Beck will end his Fox News Channel talk show, which has plummeted in the ratings and suffered from an advertiser boycott. He said he will stay in business creating other projects for Fox television and some documentaries. Beck was hosting the third most popular news talk show and he is a Tea Party darling. He hosted a rally that drew thousands to the National Mall in Washington. But his tendency to speak about conspiracies and his insistence that Obama is a racist led to an advertiser boycott. More than 400 Fox advertisers told the company they would not allow their advertisements run during Beck’s news show. He will continue his daily talk radio show.
