Glenn Beck has a new news website up called TheBlaze. The conservative news commentator revealed TheBlaze on Tuesday. Glenn Beck wants to cover his own brand of “breaking news.” So, how did Beck go from TV news commentator to head of TheBlaze?
Simple, it can be said that Beck wanted change and he was “tired” of complaining. Beck currently hosts a show of his own on Fox News called Glenn Beck. Unsurprisingly, Beck offers his own brand of news commentary and thinking on current topics.
However, it seemed that was not enough. Even with his own show, it’s possible that Beck still felt muffled to some extent. Beck stated on TheBlaze.com that the site would cover:
“…breaking news, original reporting, insightful opinions and engaging videos about the stories that matter most.”
“will be about current news — and more. It’s not just politics and policy. It’s looking for insight wherever we find it. We’ll examine our culture, deal with matters of faith and family, and we won’t be afraid of a history lesson.”
One would have to ask, isn’t Beck already doing that with his current show?
Glenn Beck had said “he wanted to ‘stop complaining’ about mainstream media and ‘do something’ on his own.” Somehow, his “own” news and opinion website sounds like it will be similar to what everybody else is already doing! So, what do you think about TheBaze.com?
