Beck's politeness, Smerconish's endorsement

Someone on Free Republic said they turned off Glenn Beck today after Beck urged everyone to recognize Obama
as the new President, and one caller who objected was called anti-American by Beck. The poster said they won't listen to Beck again, and he said Beck's behavior probably stems from fear the Fairness Doctrine could return.

Another "conservative" talk host suffered some backlash for endorsing Obama, Philadelphia's Michael Smerconish
(WPHT). Shortly after the endorsement, CBS announced that their new D.C.-based talk station would be carrying
Smerconish too. Some feel that the Obama endorsement was part of a quid pro quo so he would get on more stations
but who knows if the F.D. may be involved too.
