If you listen to Fox News, Beck left to save his ass.

Beck who left (or was pushed out) Fox News told the student body at New York University that he had to get out of Fox News. "I remember feeling, ‘If you do not leave now, you won’t leave with your soul intact."

If Beck hasn't learned by now, you don't take a swipe at Fox News, without expecting to get hit back.

A Fox News spokesperson says "Glenn Beck wasn't trying to save his soul, he was trying to save his ass. Advertisers fled his show and even Glenn knows what that means in our industry. Yet, we still tried to give him a soft landing. Guess no good deed goes unpunished."

Beck left Fox News after a tumultuous two and a half years at the network.

His ratings were decent, but advertisers avoided him like the plague after many of his comments and views were aired. 

Beck left FNC saying "I’m not going to play the game anymore.”

If you listen to Fox News, Beck got out while the getting was good.
