FOX Rising Star Glenn Beck Takes a Dive

On January 19, 2009 CNN pundit Glenn Beck pulled up anchor and took his news wagon on the road. Since that time Beck’s been parking his rig in the lot over at Rupert Murdoch’s FOX News Channel. At his new 5:00 p.m. spot, Beck’s self-proclaimed rodeo show has been doing quite well. Seems FOX has a lot of rodeo fans. Beck proclaims he’s not a journalist, just a rodeo clown trying to get your attention.

According to TVbyTheNumbers.com, in less than one year Beck has become FOX’s hot new rising star. Though FOX’s top cable news show, The O’Reilly Factor, has consistently drawn half-a-million to a million more viewers than Beck, throughout 2009 Glenn’s rodeo gag continually edged closer and closer to Sean Hannity’s second-place ratings behind O’Reilly. Last month, on the one year anniversary of Beck’s move to FOX, Hannity’s numbers made a one-day-spike to over double that of Glenn Beck. But it didn’t last. From that day forward Beck’s numbers edged past Hannity and Beck has averaged over 100,000 more viewers per day than Hannity. With a peak of 3.99 million viewers, this rodeo clown has indeed gotten some attention.

As of early February Glenn Beck had become the second most highly rated FOX news program, well ahead of CNN and MSNBC rivals. But then came the dive.

On February 11 th Beck circled the wagons and invited Texas gubinatorial candidate, Debra Medina, onto his morning radio show. During that nationally syndicated radio program Beck ambushed Medina and effectively labeled her as a “9-11 Truther.” Beck then dispensed with the interview and began laughing at Medina once she was off air. And Beck immediately began promoting candidate Rick Perry, sitting governor of Texas. Then in a mini-commentary Beck stated that Medina’s comments were “the fastest way back to four percent,” referring to Medina’s meteoric 20-point rise to 24 percent in some pre-election polls.

But ironically Beck’s commentary would become a prophetic statement about his own audience numbers. After that morning interview, the blowback against Beck began immediately on the Internet. Medina’s supporters were furious over Beck’s comments and took it as a smear campaign. And later that day when Beck went on-air at FOX studios, Beck suffered a massive 17 percent drop in audience numbers (see TvbyTheNumbers.com charts below). That equated to a loss of over one-half million viewers. And that loss was not a temporary blip. Beck’s audience loss has been sustained. In the ten days since the incident on February 11 th Beck’s audience at FOX has dropped by an average of 17 percent. A consistent loss of over half-a-million viewers.

The question now is whether FOX’s new rising star will become a falling star after stepping in the cowpie. And will Texas candidate for governor, Debra Medina, continue to rise.

Fair and Balanced? You decide. Texas early voting polls currently open.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
