Posted on 01/09/2013 1:04:38 PM PST by Nachum
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." "We´re not gonna play

Money makes 'vorld go 'round----
His 'evolution' is obvious.
The news media is as healthy as ever, there’s just onnnne little catch:
IT’S CHANGING HANDS.
First it was GBTV. Then it was The Blaze. Now it’s GLNN. What next?
And the acronym for the Global Libertarian News Network will be, what, exactly?
Well played, Mr. Beck. ;-)
So is his a show that can be seen somewhere other than on the internet and the Dish system?
Libertarian? THAT figures. Maybe Glenn will report on how fabulous gay marriages are.
So why not find someone to put on a screen to represent the Far Right?
“Libertarian? THAT figures. Maybe Glenn will report on how fabulous gay marriages are.”
While tearfully looking into the camera.
And smoking a joint at the same time.
3 rebrandings in one year is p*ss-poor marketing.
He should have chosen Global Libertarian E-News Network
This appears to be the direction many conservatives are going to go. The traditional social conservative platform (pro-life and pro traditional marriage) is not going to get much love from the Republican Party OR from conservatives like Beck and others that would prefer to move in a more libertarian direction. The problem is that while the social conservative movement may be shrinking, no right of center party (Republican, Libertarian or otherwise) is going to be able to win without these voters - not for at least another generation.
If you truly want an alternative to the presstitutes, it's time to put your money where your mouth is.
You can’t be conservative if you aren’t, and libertarians are not conservatives.
Conservatives are just that, conservative, something that libertarians are out to destroy.
Okay...I understand Matthews as the far left, but where does Hannity fit in???
Beck is showing a picture of Sean Hannity as a representative of the “far right?” Um, okay. Don’t quite see that. But then again, I don’t quite see Beck’s embrace of degeneracy via homo-marriage either. Due to the latter, I really don’t put much stock in anything he has to say anymore.
Filling? Stuffing? Cranberry Sauce? Giblet gravy? White meat? Dark meat? Bordeaux? Merlot?
I agree that Libertarians are not Conservatives. Both may count as right of center, but they aren’t the same.
This is one of the big problems we are facing. The right is fractured. A large chunk of it wants to be more fiscally conservative, but more in tune socially with the libertine times we are in and the younger generations. The older (and more rural) conservatives put more emphasis on the traditional values first and foremost and will not vote for a party that doesn’t care about these things. Ron Paul may be a kook on many issues, but he does tap into a pool of voters out there that agree with us on economic issues, but want nothing to do with Republicans because of their social conservative positions. Beck is simply trying to tap into this.
Beck’s TV show is awesome. He features David Barton from time to time as well, hardly a libertarian.
