There is no bigger Ted Cruz suck-up than Glenn Beck. I have no issue with his advocacy of Cruz's candidacy.

What I do have an issue with is Beck's over-the-top worship of Mr. Cruz as if he's the Messiah sent by the Lord himself.

Maybe some (many?) of Beck's past supporters and subscribers have had their fill, too?

Now, I'll be the first to say the below article contains airs of bias and seemingly oversimplifies certain details (for example, no commercial bank would explicitly instruct a borrower to "reduce staff"). However, I found the central points of the article to be interesting.

The right-leaning (and very Trump friendly) BreitBart is no fan of the Blaze these days, either:

Here's another article on the layoffs:

Rock 95.5 in Chicago is the worst sounding major market rock station in the history of corporate radio.

Just in case there was any question about Mr. Beck's gravitas with respect to political acumen and thoughtful dissertation, I present Exhibit A:

Interesting, I didn't think Glenn Beck was even famous anymore for anyone to care who he endorsed.

Wasn't he supposed to be projected to make boat loads of money of his little "enterprise", like tens of millions, in just the first couple of years?
