Glenn Beck appears on the cover of this weekend’s New York Times Magazine in a lengthy profile written by Mark Leibovich.
In the profile, Leibovich touches on tensions between Beck and Fox News, the network that catapulted him to stardom.
News of tension between Beck and his network colleagues (and bosses) is nothing new — in March, the Washington Post’s Howard Kurtz described Fox News as “a network divided” over Beck, which prompted network boss Roger Ailes to issue a stern “no trash-talking” message to his DC bureau — but Leibovich’s article sheds new light on the extent to which Beck and Fox News have clashed.
Leibovich reports that Ailes “has complained about Beck’s hawking his non-Fox ventures too much on his Fox show” and that Ailes believes Beck “does not fully appreciate the degree to which Fox News has made him the sensation he has become in recent months.” Leibovich also notes that Beck is “the only major personality at the network whose office is not at Fox News headquarters.”
