Just when I thought that I had gotten enough good news to carry me through another week, the following happens!
Madison, Wisconsin Radio Station Drops Glenn Beck

Clearly it’s all because they are a bunch of commie-loving socialists:
WTDY can no longer carry the Glenn Beck program. Over the last 12 months, the show has devolved into plugs for Fox News (the radio version of which is aired by our direct competitor), his books, and other personal endorsements. The lack of actual content becomes more apparent daily. Monday’s program was the final straw; his unabashed deriding of Madison is unacceptable for broadcast in our community.
It took them how long to notice the “lack of content”? I mean, goodness, I’m as glad as anyone to see Beck get dropped for any reason, but if any of the above was a surprise, they should try actually listening to shows before putting them on the air.
And then there's this!

Not “real America” of course, but still heartening:
“He bounces around pretty radically, I think he confuses people, they’re not sure where he is coming from,” said Rick Buckley, president of Buckley Radio of Greenwich, Conn., who spoke with Media Matters. “It can change day to day, hour to hour. Consistency is, I think, the path to success in broadcasting, in radio for sure, whether it be music or talk. Glenn is sort of all over the park from time to time.”
If by “time to time” he means “from the time the show starts until the time the show ends”, then he’s got it exactly right.
Again -- no shit!
