Fox News Pulls Glenn Beck's Show In Favor Of Japan Earthquake Coverage

Fox News decided to go all in on its coverage of the earthquake in Japan on Friday. It announced that it will preempt Friday's edition of "Glenn Beck" in favor of special news coverage from Shepard Smith. (Beck has been on vacation this week, and Andrew Napolitano has been substituting for him.) It appears that Fox News is the only channel to alter its schedule in this way; CNN and MSNBC didn't announce any major changes to their schedules.
