[ASI] Pat Buchanan Follows Beck Out the Door

Dear Friend of America's Survival, Inc.:

You may have read about the left-wing network MSNBC  getting rid of conservative commentator Patrick Buchanan. Frankly, that is not much of a shock. That network is far-left. What is shocking is Fox News getting rid of popular conservative commentator Glenn Beck.

When Glenn Beck left Fox News, the channel declared in an April 6, 2011, press release that:

"FOX News and Glenn Beck announced Wednesday that they will team to produce a slate of projects for FOX News Channel and FOX News' digital properties."

But a "slate of projects" has not materialized.  Hence, this was a cover story, designed to make it seem as though Beck's departure was not related to left-wing pressure from Media Matters and other Soros-funded groups.

Roger Ailes, Chairman and CEO of FOX News, said in the release, "Glenn Beck is a powerful communicator, a creative entrepreneur and a true success by anybody's standards. I look forward to continuing to work with him."

But no work has been forthcoming. This was a ruse to cover-up the true reason for Beck's departure €“ pressure on News Corporation from George Soros and his interests.

I tell this story in my new column: The Soros Effect and the Death of Free Speech

Roger Ailes said that the Glenn Beck show  "began airing on FOX News in 2009 and has been one of the top rated programs on cable, averaging over 2.2 million total viewers during its run."

So why would it be cancelled? The answer is pressure from Soros. My column explains how this transpired.

It begins:

"Fox News has aired several interviews with Daily Caller editors and reporters on the influence of Media Matters, the Soros-funded left-wing attack machine. A series of articles in the Daily Caller sheds new light on the operations of the group, which masquerades as a non-profit but has partisan political ties to the Obama White House and the Democratic Party. Unfortunately, the interviews failed to touch on the most visible example of Media Matters working its will on the media €” the sacking of Glenn Beck from Fox News."

My column notes:

"Number one — Beck is gone, replaced by a show, "The Five," that includes Democratic Party operative Bob Beckel. Number two — Fox News now has two paid left-wing feminists on the air, Sally Kohn and Jehmu Greene, both graduates of Jane Fonda's Women's Media Center. And number three: it's being reported that Fox News is developing a new program to be hosted by Greene called "The Green Room."

"Greene ran the ACORN front group Project Vote. ACORN whistleblower Anita Moncrief calls her the Fox News 'infiltrator.'

"What's more, News Corporation chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch is now quoting Soros approvingly in regard to his economic thinking. Murdoch's favorable tweet about Soros followed a flattering story about the hedge fund billionaire in the Wall Street Journal, another property of News Corporation."

One way to address liberal bias is to make sure it doesn't affect Fox News, our last bastion of hope for conservatives in the major media. But a lot of damage has already been done.

The firing of Glenn Beck marked an ominous turn at the cable channel. And the channel lied about the reasons they got rid of Beck.

We need to tell Fox it cannot take conservatives for granted. Stop the lying! BRING BACK BECK.
