And since it's on his private network the blaze the rubes will be paying money to see it.

Speaking of which the story says All nine of the show's episodes will air on Beck's network, The Blaze TV.

Since when is 1 guy with a camera dunking Effigies of the president in jars of fake piss a network?

I don't think his gray-haired senior citizen audience is going to follow him into the realm of reality TV. They're really more of a talk radio/talk show crowd.

Reality TV seems like an appropriate destination for a self-described rodeo clown.

I still don't understand what qualifications this guy has for anyone to listen to anything he says.

Just in case you are wondering what money is in shoveling this stuff....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TheBlaze

According to Wikipedia, the umbrella organization for all of Beck's stuff made $80 million last year.

Vince Vaughn how far you've fallen.

Why wouldn't Project Derp Light have worked as a title?

Oh, wait, I know why. Between Glenn Beck and Vince Vaughn, there's not too much appeal for anything with the word "Light" in it.



/you see, what I'm saying is, they're fatasses...

Why is it that conservatives always name things and use words that mean the opposite of what they are doing? It is like Orwell is their prophet.

Do you know who else used mass media to spead his insane, hate-filled message?
 
2012-12-11 10:22:45 AM
I signed up for his channel on my Roku for the laughs and to annoy my wife, but it's a pay channel. I'd totally watch this to point and laugh as well but I will absolutely not pay for it, there's plenty of free tv for me to point and laugh at.
 
2012-12-11 10:23:03 AM
is he going to investigate what happened to that girl in 1990?

He already had his own reality show on Fox. How much "his own reality" can this new show be?

George Orwell had men like him in mind when he wrote 1984. He's nothing but a propagandist, except that he doesn't get a paycheck from the Government, he does it out of zealously. Any kind of "I'm an Entertainer" crap he spews is strictly to shirk controversy when someone does something terrible in his name.

People really shouldn't delude themselves. Fox News, and it's associated radio holdings, are nothing but media shills for the Republican Party in the United States. CNN and MSNBC, to a MUCH lesser extent, are guilty of it for the Democratic Party.

It would be the first time the man has had any relationship with reality. So thats a good thing..... I guess?

If Glenn Beck ever caught up with the truth it would strangle him with his own intestines.

Take this man's advice. That's a great piece by Perlstein.
 
2012-12-11 10:28:23 AM
I always figured that his original show was best watched as though it were a kind of reality TV, rather than as news. What will make this new show different?
 
2012-12-11 10:28:31 AM
I guess he couldn't go for "Pursuit of Truthiness" without getting sued by Colbert..

You know, this simply isn't true.

The idea that Fox is a "shill for the republican party" and MSNBC is a "shill for the democratic party" stands up to no close scrutiny whatsoever. yes, fox news afficionados tend to vote republican and msnbc viewers tend to vote democrat, but this in no way leads to the conclusion that the networks are the willing accomplices quasi-secretly doing party bidding on the direct orders from the party. a more reasonable explanation is that it's rent-seeking and market-segmentation at work, plus in fox news' case a willingness to be exploitative and crass in pursuit of goals. if you have evidence for your use of the term 'shill', then let's have it - otherwise i'd even argue that the political parties are acutally the weaker party to the matter - with the media outlets far greater budgets and reach being the main driver. there's always a bit of chicken and egg in these things, but your message basically reeks of conspiratorial BS.

Hey, he's not a one-hit wonder, dammit, he's achieved a lot of things for conservatives, thank you! For instance, he also tried to adopt a girl he was porking at the time.

I don't know what's more infuriating - him, or the people that lap up the nonsense that faux tough guy, pants shiatting draft dodger utters. All they talk about are their "principles" but they abandon them the moment some false prophet parrots something they agree with. Bleh.

Will Glen Beck's new show be a telethon to benefit the family of the girl that Glen Beck may or may not have raped and murdered in 1990?

Reading about Glen Beck is like wondering what's down that hallway in high school where you never have any classes. That curiosity passes really quickly.
