The Fox Network has uses the slogan "fair & balanced" and they love controversy. They have flat out refused to ask Beck to tone it down.

I would make the case that he couldnt work himself into the starting lineup, so why would they consider bringing a player onto their team who cant attract enough of an audience to make a dent ANYWHERE between 4 pm and 3 am? And that most of his most loyal fans are so anti FNC that they could never imagine tuning it in.

That would be really interesting and would be kind of neat to see it happen, but I don't think we'll ever see it. What is Olbermann's next move? I feel like there's probably more to that story that is still yet to be seen.

I don't know why Fox would want him. He's unbalanced, so he doesn't fit in. Why would they want to put him on the air, when all their shows beat him in the ratings?

Plus, he's not just a liberal, he's a left wing loon and would only take away from Fox's credibility. He's just a mouthpiece for the left, just pushes the liberal agenda, no matter how bad it is for the country.

They have trounced CNN and MSNBC, they don't need to put some back bencher on the air, it would only hurt them.

Looks like the new owners over at MSNBC are making a statement, hopefully they won't just keep loser shows on the air when they are long past their time. Hopefully Madddow is next.

Yeah you know she is sooo much worse than Glenn Beck you know what with all her Facts,even tempered reporting and interviews and that lucid mind of hers! With all her clear thinking? You are right she has to go! I mean where are her conspiracy therioes? Her chalkboards? Her nazi references and imagery?

I don't watch Beck, seen very little of him, so I don't really know what you are talking about. Without looking, I'm willing to bet he beats her in the ratings. I'm pretty sure that Hannity, who she is up against, regularly DOUBLES her audience.

I would like to see MSNBC become a credible channel again. Olbermann had none and, of course, got killed by O'Reilly every night. As far as I know, he had a one sided show, no conservatives to present their side.

I'm confused....HAS Olberman joined FOX News or not? There was a thread here on that earlier, but I can't find it (maybe I'm just blind)....and while google searches turn up links that claim he is joining FOX (at 3 times his previous salary at MSNBC), there are others that claim this was just a hoax.
