Glenn Beck: Fox News ‘one of the only places you’ll find truth’

Published

on

Conservative conspiracy host Glenn Beck compared himself to American icon Paul Revere on Wednesday after announcing that he’s leaving Fox News.

“When I took this job, I didn’t take it because it was going to be a career for me,” Beck said. “Paul Revere did not get up on that horse and say, ‘I’m going to do this for the rest of my life.’ He got off the horse at some point and fought in the revolution.”

In typical fashion, Beck ominously warned his viewers that America was heading into “deep and treacherous waters.”

“Fox is one of the only places you’ll find truth,” he said at the end of his show. “Spread the word. Stick together. And together we will do the right thing for our country and for our world.”

Beck announced plans to “transition off” his Fox News program in favor of a realigned agreement between Fox and his production company, Mercury Radio Arts.

The deal will see Beck’s company designing unspecified new media for the Fox News Channel and other Fox online properties, a news release said.

The release was not specific as to when he would be off the air, saying only that it would happen “later this year.”

Beck’s viewership had been declining in recent months, even as his stable of regular corporate sponsors shrank due to a particularly effective campaign by a group of progressives upset at his pointedly racial barbs against President Obama.

Stephen Colbert rips ‘idiot’ GOP senator for defending Trump’s unconstitutional self-dealing

Published

on

"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert returned from New Zealand for a new show that aired Monday evening.

"I have been as far from the insatiable black hole of news that is Donald Trump as you can get on this planet.

I've heard there have been some developments over the last 10 days that did not go well for Donnie,"

The host ripped Trump's 71-minute press conference.

"Seventy-one minutes is not a press conference, it's a one man show," he explained. "If you liked 'Fleabag,' you'll love Donald Trump in 'Douchebag,'" he said.

Texas Republicans are abandoning the state’s GOP Speaker: ‘We no longer support him’

Published

on

Some of the most powerful Texas House Republicans said Monday they no longer support GOP Speaker Dennis Bonnen, marking the biggest blow yet to his political future amid the fallout from a secret recording released last week by a hardline conservative activist.

Five Republicans considered senior members of the lower chamber issued a statement withdrawing support for him: State Reps. Four Price of Amarillo, Dan Huberty of Houston, Lyle Larson of San Antonio, Chris Paddie of Marshall and John Frullo of Lubbock.

Donald Trump is making a mockery of Marco Rubio — and the Florida senator is letting him

Published

on

Sen. Marco Rubio was once one of Donald Trump’s most formidable opponents; now, the Florida senator bends over backward to excuse the president’s corruption.

In 2016, Rubio and Trump sparred frequently on the Republican primary debate stage. Trump picked the uninspired nickname “Little Marco” for the senator, which didn’t seem to do much damage on its own, but Rubio never gained the momentum or strength that his backers hoped would prove to be strong enough to take down the reality TV candidate. As Rubio grew desperate, he launched one of his most memorable and pitiful attacks by stooping to his opponent’s level, implying that Trump had a small penis. It was more of an embarrassing moment for Rubio than anyone else, though Trump helped himself with a crude rejoinder.
