The End Is Nigh for Glenn Beck


Just minutes ago, NYT’s Brian Stelter reported:

Glenn Beck will end his daily Fox News Channel program later this year.

His departure was jointly announced in a statement on Wednesday by Fox and Mr. Beck’s company, Mercury Radio Arts…..

The statement was briefly posted on The Blaze, a Web site owned by Mr. Beck, but it was then taken down. Representatives for Fox and Mr. Beck did not immediately explain why.

No end date was specified, according to the New York Times.

Recently, Beck has come under fire from conservatives, including Peter Wehner and MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough.

Here’s what Wehner had to say just a few weeks ago:

But what ought to worry conservatives in particular is that Beck not only has the unusual capacity to discredit virtually every cause he takes up; he also confirms the worst caricatures of the right.
