Since announcing his departure from his Fox News show, a lot of people have been wondering what Glenn Beck is going to do once he goes.
From what he told Bill O'Reilly last night, it sounds like Beck only has plans to become a bigger force in the media world, though he still remained vague about what he was actually planning on doing.
Beck acknowledged the platform that Fox News had given him, saying "there's no place to do cable news except for Fox" but he also said "it's a new era, things are changing in the world," hinting that he would be held back by staying at Fox.
"We have to reach different audiences, we have to reach younger."
Beck's coming transition is also the focus of O'Reilly 's latest column:
My pal Glenn Beck is leaving his program on the Fox News Channel later this year. This has caused great joy among some uber-liberals who object to free speech as well as to anything Beck. The Media Matters outfit took just seconds to misstate why Beck is changing venues, but what else is new? George Soros partially funds Media Matters, so why would the website ever say anything truthful when far left propaganda is so much easier to dish?
When you get past all the rubbish, Glenn Beck is really Norm, the guy on the sitcom "Cheers." He sits on a symbolic barstool and vents. He sees bad things happening to his country and objects. Because his rap is so interesting, millions of Americans want to hear it. So what on earth is wrong with that?
If you just got off the plane from Mongolia and dialed into the left-wing U.S. media, you might think Glenn Beck is the anti-Christ. The hue and cry about Beck is downright hysterical. Why do they care? Beck isn't an elected official; he's not even a journalist. He's just a guy with an opinion. So what's the beef?
