Never one to shy away from portraying his struggles in the most melodramatic terms, conservative commentator Glenn Beck said on Friday that he left the Fox News Channel because he was afraid of turning into Norma Desmond, the faded screen siren from the 1950 noir film “Sunset Boulevard,” and that he would not be able to keep his “soul intact.”
According to Forbes.com, Beck told an audience at the NYU Stern School of Business Friday that TV networks as we know them are dying, which was why he had to leave his daily 5:00 p.m. slot on former Nixon aide Roger Ailes’ highly rated network.
“If you stay in it too long, you become Norma Desmond,” Beck said. “I remember feeling, ‘If you do not leave now, you won’t leave with your soul intact.'”
