Stories from the fringe – ‘Glenn Beck Relaunching The Blaze As Global Libertarian News Network’
One very rich ‘rodeo clown’.
‘Glenn Beck announced plans Tuesday during his online television program to expand the news operation in his media company, The Blaze, and refocus it as a libertarian network, opening three foreign bureaus, debuting a nightly newsmagazine show, and relocating his New York staff to showy new offices’.
‘Beck introduced his ambitious plans by standing in front of a split screen with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews on one side and Fox News’s Sean Hannity on the other, and bemoaning the fact that cable news has devolved into the “far left [and] far right… yelling at each other.”
“And I want people to notice me and make a a whole bunch of money off of the simpeltons so what better way then to have my own network.”
‘Beck also showed a teaser for a new nightly 30-minute newsmagazine show called For the Record’.
“Our Nightline will be a nightly half hour broadcast to update you on a topic that no one else quite frankly has the balls to do. I will,” he said’.
‘The trailer for the show — which he said will be “the most expensive show on the network, including mine” — featured future episodes exposing the NSA for turning America into a “surveillance state,” and warning that the UN “want[s] your guns,” both big issues in libertarian circles’.
