In farewell announcement, Beck admits dislike of conflict, says Fox gig not meant to be permanent
Earlier on Wednesday, Glenn Beck’s website theblaze.com broke the news that Beck show would be eventually phased out of the Fox News Channel’s lineup.
On his Wednesday afternoon show, Beck explained to viewers the reason behind his departure and admitted some other things about the content of his character.
“I want to take a couple of minutes and address something personal between you and me,” Beck said. “This is something that, something that I have been thinking about for a very long time. When Fox was generous enough to offer me the time at 5:00, I originally didn’t take them up on it. I turned them down. One reason – I didn’t want to do this. I hated doing it at the other place. This place is sweet in comparison. But I also knew — believe it or not, anybody who knows me in my real life, as the wee little Erin will tell you, too – I avoid on confrontation like nobody’s business. That’s why I’m forced, but also I don’t like it. I don’t like conflict, but sometimes you have to stand.”
Just posted so I could tag if “barf alert”! LOL!
