    Glenn Beck ends Fox run with an empty, banal hour
    In the end, Glenn Beck's last hour on Fox News Thursday after 2 and 1/2 years of considerable controversy, was relatively quiet, banal and kind of pathetic. Beck told viewers several times how "amazing" the last 2 and 1/2 years have been. It was an...
