About a week after Geico, Radioshack, Walmart and other advertisers pulled their ads from the Glenn Beck Show—following a crazy tirade by Beck, where he called Obama "a racist"—Mediabistro says Beck's been sent to a farm upstate:
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."
A Fox News spokesperson denied our accounts and simply told us, "Glenn Beck will back on Monday." But several sources inside FNC confirm that this is a forced vacation.
