Glenn Beck was never one for subtlety, so his quiet departure Thursday night from Fox News was perhaps surprising given how much harm he has done during his two years on the air.
There is no doubt Beck is a passionate person. And as he leaves to pursue a paid Internet channel called GBTV, it's clear we haven't seen the last of him. In fact, he promised, "You will pray for the time I was only on the air for one hour a day." Well, maybe so. But there is no time like the present to wrap up his major media presence.
Of course, the damage he has done with his rabble rousing and incendiary language is already done. He has filled his listeners with half-truths and used fear as a weapon against the other side. There are so many ways he made the world a worse place. I truly hope he is gone for good, but I worry this will only give him more power.
