Glenn Beck left the Fox News Channel last year after hosting a popular, hour-long, weekday program on the network. His show had been the target of intense controversy including boycotts by some.
Did Fox News try to censor Glenn Beck before the media giant left the cable network last year?
The answer is yes, according to Beck, who made the disclosure this week on his new television program on GBTV.com.
Beck was discussing comments made by longtime PBS news commentator Bill Moyers who was defending leftist billionaire George Soros.
Moyers had said Soros has “been the victim, of course, of Glenn Beck and the right-wing, the Fox News assassins.”
In response to Moyers’ comment, Beck explained that his own former network tried to get him to clam up about his constant reporting on what he felt was Soros’ fiendish agenda to harm the American way of life.
“Here’s the real reason why George Soros is worried about little old me and the assassins, because I know the truth about him,” said Beck.
“Everyone – including the assassins [at Fox News] – told me, ‘You wanna shut up about George Soros?’”
