Former Fox Pundit: I Quit Because Glenn Beck Is Scary

Sounds reasonable.

On CNN's Reliable Sources Sunday former Fox News contributer Jane Hall explained why she left the network: basically, she noticed a decrease in debate featuring opposing viewpoints. Also, Glenn Beck is terrifying: 

Jane Hall: “The reason I left is because I think they have less debate than they used to. But you know it’s a fair point to say, how much debate is there on MSNBC? How many Republican strategists? We have a bifurcation of the media that I think is going on ...

Howard Kurtz: The reason you left is because you feel they have less debate than they used to? In other words, it used to be Hannity and Coombs, now it’s just now it’s just Hannity. It used to be Bernie and Jane. Now it’s just Bernie.

Yeah, i think there’s less debate than there was before. And I am frankly uncomfortable with Beck, who i think should be called out, as somebody whose language is way over the top. And it's scary ... 

Kurtz: Was that a factor in your deciding to leave Fox?

Hall: Yeah. It was.
