Media Matters Toasts Final Glenn Beck Show With Silly Party (VIDEO)

Glenn Beck's tenure at Fox News will come to an end on Thursday, and no organization seems happier about his impending signoff than Media Matters, the progressive news watchdog group that has spent months pressuring advertisers and network executives to pull Beck out of his hourlong 5 p.m. slot.

On Monday, Media Matters threw a party to celebrate Beck's departure, drawing hundreds of activists, journalists and political strategists from the nation's capital. The Huffington Post's Zach Carter was there.
