Why Glenn Beck Is Leaving New York (CHART)

The news is out this morning that Glenn Beck is planning to leave New York...well, at least leaving his New York-adjacent Connecticut mansion. But the host put a fine point on it this weekend when, at a live event in Albany, he announced that he will not be building his new media empire, which will invent a "new way to communicate with each other," in New York City.

Now, you might think you know why Beck is leaving the Empire State, but as is always the case, there's never just one reason. And so we have pie charts. Below, we've calculated the various factors influencing Beck's decision to leave New York. If we've left any out, just let us know in the comments.
