Sadly, the Washington Post still doesn’t understand why no one is reading them anymore. Last week, they ran a story about Glenn Beck’s final show on Fox.
In the first paragraph, they resort back to a statement Glenn Beck made about himself, and use it to try and discredit all the information Glenn Beck brought to his viewers during his time on TV on CNN and on the Fox News Channel.
All irreputable reporters can do now is make fun of Glenn Beck, as they have been doing for years. Join me as we pick apart this writer’s opinion piece:
Glenn Beck — populist ranter, Barack Obama scourge, self-described “rodeo clown” — stepped away from his biggest stage Thursday.
Saying that The Glenn Beck Program on FOX was his biggest stage, is inaccurate. As Forbes reported a few years back, the $2 million Glenn made on FOX, was the least amount of money made from all of his ventures.
Being a #1 Bestselling author, drawing 100’s of 1000’s of people with public appearances, and his radio program, newsletter, and Insider Extreme site (now GBTV) Glenn made less money at FOX than anywhere else.
If he’s a rodeo clown, he’s a smart clown with lots of business sense and will now expand that knowledge into much, much more.
Which brings me to the stupid remark at the bottom of the article at the WP:
His next project is a subscription-based daily webcast, GBTV.com (slogan: “The truth lives here”), which Beck began moments after his TV sign-off. Fox also has said he would collaborate on “a slate of projects,” although none have been disclosed.
“I didn’t run away from something,” he said during his swan song Thursday. “I’m running to something. I know exactly where I’m going.”
He didn’t mention what. Or where.
Are they serious? Glenn Beck didn’t mention what he was running toward, or where he was running to?
It just goes to show you that most journalists today took their cue from the last thing poor Dan Rather did before he was retired in disgrace, falsely reporting the facts and twisting the facts to sell newspapers.
With the dismal viewership of late of so many major US newspapers, perhaps they should try a different tactic. I don’t know, like, maybe telling the truth for once. How would that be? What if they were to actually start reporting the truth when it came to Glenn Beck? A novel idea, but since the progressive left are in bed with the Obama administration, anyone who speaks out against Obama’s socialist policies, will be fair game.
Send this to the author of the WP piece:
Tell the Washington Post to read what GBTV will be all about, and then try re-writing the piece, using the truth.
