Jon Stewart channeled Glenn Beck in his send-off of the departing Fox News anchor (and favorite punching bag) on The Daily Show last night.
At the end of his show today, Glenn Beck addressed his pending departure as Fox News talk show host. “When I took this job, I didn’t take it because it was going to be a career for me,” Beck said. “Paul Revere did not get up on the horse and say, ‘I’m going to do this for the rest of my life.’ He didn’t do it. He got off his horse at some point and fought in the revolution, and then he went back to silver-smithing.” Beck didn’t elaborate much on his future plans beyond saying that “I will continue to tell the story.” He also made a plug for Fox News. “Fox is one of the only places you will find truth,” he said. “Spread the word. Stick together and together we will do the right thing for our country and for our world.” Here’s the video:
