There is a sentence no one seems to pay attention to in an opinion piece masquerading as reporting in The NY Times on how Beck and Fox News — supposedly — will be parting ways at the end of the year.
The rest of the “story” has heartened the left-blogosphere into declaring that this is the end of Beck because he has lost one-third of his viewership.
Anyway, here is the sentence no one wants to focus on:
“He still has numbers that just about any cable news host would envy and, with about two million viewers a night, outdraws all his competition combined.”
I have no idea if Beck and Fox will part ways; the “reporter” for The Times could turn out to be the proverbial broken clock.
But if Beck’s sinking numbers signal the end of his television career, what does that mean for “all his competition combined” who do not equal Beck’s numbers collectively?
Update: This reminds me of my prior post, The Sarah Palin, The Glenn Beck and The Rush Limbaugh.
