Skip to comments.Has anyone wondered...how did Glenn Beck get wealthy so quickly?

I have wondered about Beck for a while, but loved his exposure of the communist network in the US. Since he left FOX...he seems to have changed...and the immediate disregard to the Bundy situation really made me sick. Beck didn't even give the guy the benefit of the doubt and touted the NYT version.
I know he has risen to fame since 2001, ghost written several books, had rallies, etc....but to have a network, now? A base in NY....a major website (so buggy and full of cookies it puts me off).
Does anyone else find this strange?
And claims to be for the liberty movement but cowers at an old gent saying (what he considers) off-colored remarks? Hello 1st Amdmt!
I just don't get it.
Strong supporter of Romney?
He inherited it from the beer his family made.
Point to ponder.
He had a radio show, and was on CNN, before Fox. I imagine he was a mulch-millionaire years ago but who knows?
I knew a guy who made a fortune dealing in mulch too.
His profits from Doomsday Foods?
Yup, the old fashioned way. No conspiracy required.
Sorry. “Got”. I hate tablets. :)
If you dont know this, you’ve never listened to the show.
“Get your doomsday Ovaltine and gold right here!”
Get several million people to listen to you on a regular basis and people will pay good money to advertise to those people.
The other thing- Beck lost his Fox show when he said Obama hates white people, or words to that effect. They went after his advertisers, and it probably scared him. I would not blame him for being somewhat skittish after that. Same with Rush & Sandra Fluke- the left is relentless and will not stop.
Yeah, this is the sort of high quality thread we can all be proud of.
The guy has book deals, been a commentator, and so on. Does this question really need an answer?
after the fall, Huntsman, no doubt a crone of Reid.
As long as it was legally obtained, he can be as wealthy as he can be...
After Beck’s comments on Bunday, the BLAZE is no longer in my bookmarks.
Crone of Reid?
Wouldn’t that be Pelosi?
pop, I don’t mind that at all. I’m as capitalist as they come. I’m just left scratching my head as to why he won’t stand up for the liberty of Bundy and the gov overreach. I’m beginning to think Beck’s a fraud. JMO.
He is a bit emotional, but my view is that he is sincere, genuine, and tries to call things as he sees them. I have spent enough time with him and some of his friends to be convinced that he sincerely loves liberty and the God-inspired heritage of America as it was and as it should be. Do I watch or listen much to his shows? Not much any more... But he isn’t owned by anybody or any political party, in my opinion, anyway.
I had forgotten about him.
We’ll have to wait until Monday, next month at 17:00 to find out! Stand by!
Asking an honest question. Not looking for ‘quality control’, with all due respect.
What did he say? I figured that he would bail but since I can’t stomach him any longer I don’t listen.
———. Im beginning to think Becks a fraud. JMO.-——
Beck, Isn’t a fraud....he’s a entertainer....first and foremost....
That’s why guys like him and Hannity run from issues that might cost them viewers and advertisers....
Even Rush caved to a degree on the Fluke fiasco....
Rush made a mistake in language and finally owned up to it...
Glenn Beck is a freemason just like Limbaugh. They are not true friends of traditional Christians. Lenin did say “the best way to control the opposition to lead it ourselves.”
Bill Gates didn’t get rich by inventing Windows. He got rich by buying DOS from it’s inventor, then reselling it with his own brand name to IBM.
It’s all about timing, marketing, and picking the right investments.
No conspiracy needed.
He has investors and is plowing every nickel he has and can get into a media enterprise. He believes his investments will pay off. I think he is right.
He claims the truth stops here? And then fails to find out the truth? Give me a break.
One word for him...WEASEL.
I’m thinking it’s because he’s a really popular media personality. I don’t it, myself. His voice annoys me. However, I don’t understand why a lot of celebrities are popular.
For the first few months of listening to him on the radio I kept thinking of Beck as a used car salesman.
I would like to see any link that proves that Rush is a Free Mason.
You mad, Bro?
One other thing. It took Mark Levin a long time to get back to talking to Beck. Bech stabbed everyone in the back years ago. I am sure there are still videos of the Levin radio show on youtube where Levin tore into him.
Beck, et al. Are terrified of saying anything the Fedzilla could contort into “fomenting rebellion”.
Masons aren't Christians?? WoW! That's NEWS to me.
Not mad, “bro”. Just questioning his intentions as of late.
The first ting he did was early on he ranted and raged that no one should show up at the Bundy ranch to confront the BLM.
He painted Bundy as an anti- government militant.
Then he labeled him as a racist, little if any better than a grand dragon of the KKK.
When what Bundy clearly was saying is that the great society programs have made the blacks slaves to the government.
I am surprised that Bundy did not, since he is a life long westerner, compare them to what the Bureau of Indian Affairs has done to the indians.
At any rate, Beck shot off his mouth based on the NYT story, which later turned out to have edited Bundy’s remarks to make him look worse than he is.
And today O’Reily called Bundy stupid.
For not getting a first class lawyer, he could be called that.
But it is interesting that he made the claim that the land in question did not and does not belong to the US government but belongs to the state.
Now all of a sudden nine western states have come to the same conclusion and are holding meetings in an effort to figure out how to take control of the land.
“Why do you care who much wealth Beck has and how it got it?
As long as it was legally obtained, he can be as wealthy as he can be...”
He may have obtained his wealth legally, but he’s probably working to subvert the liberty movement and constitutionalists. Attacking supporters of Clive Bundy is very revealing.
When the SHTF, this guy will be solidly on the side of the establishment oligarchs.
Rush is a bricklayer.
Back in 2008-2010, Beck opened my eyes to many things. Now I don’t trust a word he says.
Didn’t Levin consider him a ‘back bencher’?
That’s what has me really worried. I’m sick of his Ghandi crap.
Beck’s wealth does not concern me, his throwing Bundy under the bus does. I have been a fan, but his obsession with demonizing that poor man made me just sick. I don’t think I can listen to him any more. His analysis of Mr. Bundy’s words are way off the mark, IMHO.
He’s got a heluva radio following. (Advertisements) like Rush. Works when he feels like it.
it’s that thing the typer does
