Salt Lake City, Utah – Fox News and Glenn Beck have announced that Beck will transition off his TV program to produce other on-air and on-line projects. Beck says the way people get their news is changing and that he needs to reach a different audience. Many media critics aren't buying it though, pointing to a decline in his ratings and a loss of advertisers as the real reasons for the separation. Tuesday, we're talking about Beck and asking if the public is tiring of extreme rhetoric from the left and the right.
