Hmm, here’s a CRAZY rumor about Glenn Beck and his disappearance this week from Fox News. Nobody ever goes on “actual” vacation in August — except the French, that is — so where the hell is Glenn Beck, really?
Tipsters inside Fox News tell us Glenn Beck’s vacation this week from his Fox News show was not planned. We hear Beck was told to take this week off to let some of the heat surrounding him die down. That heat began July 28 on “Fox & Friends” when Beck said he thought Pres. Obama has “a deep-seated hatred for white people,” adding, “This guy is, I believe, a racist.”
Open and shut case, folks! Except:
Sources close to Beck have contacted TVNewser denying that this was a forced vacation. Beck’s personal publicist Matthew Hiltzik forwarded us an email dated July 14th sent by Christopher Balfe, President & COO of Mercury Radio Arts and General Manager of Beck’s radio show, addressed to Mercury Radio employees reading: “Glenn will be off of radio & TV the week of August 17th, returning to air August 24th.”
Conclusion: Glenn Beck will return to work on Monday issuing butthurt rants regarding the death of his mother, which was planned all the way back in mid-July, and which everybody really should have known about.
