Hilarious video as Jon Stewart bids goodbye to Glenn Beck – “They dropped his ass”

This hilarious video from the Daily Show’s Jon Stewart is aimed at Glenn Beck, who was finally sacked from his position as head loony at Rupert Murdoch’s “Fix News” station.

If you’ve ever been in America and had the misfortune to see the vile propaganda that comes from the fox network, then you’ll be as happy as The Akh is to see the back of Beck.

Stewart said goodbye in his own fashion to the paranoid loudmouth by reviving his famed, equally conspiratorial impersonation of Beck. It’s not the first time Stewart laid into Beck;

It wasn’t entirely his loony theories that got Beck fired.

It was the pressure campaign that was mounted on fox that saw them lose a million viewers, more than 300 lost advertisers and widespread criticism that all added up to a disastrous business model.

This clip from Charlie Brookers Newswipe shows America’s “news” network at it’s finest:

Rupert Murdoch’s media empire has been caught on the backfoot, while all the phone tapping scandal’s continue to play out in the UK, his chief cheerleader gets sacked in the US.

Said thing is, Beck will probably go set up his own show elsewhere, most probably an Alex Jones style show which batshit right wing republicans will fund and lap up.

Beck for president in 2012?

No more crazy than a washed up actor like Reagan running for presidency.

Only in America
