    How many times can one person claim to have had some huge epiphany and that they’re going to do things totally different from now on? Glenn Beck seems intent on finding out. About once a year he declares that he has learned from his past actions and will now be all about good things. The latest attempt at a reset: I want to get out of the “news and opinion” business and focus on “facts and perspective”. News is breaking. Let others be first. I want to be driven by facts. I want us to be right and without the...

    Even though Glenn Beck fired 30 percent of his staff at his dwindling media enterprise the Blaze Thursday afternoon, he still managed to keep his personal chef on the company payroll. The Daily Beast reported that employees who were related to Beck’s close friend Robert Shelton managed to escape the bloodbath of job cuts, including Robert’s son Matthew Shelton, who is Beck’s personal chef. Another family member who managed to survive the mass layoffs was Shelton’s daughter Bailey, who kept her job as a makeup artist. In a meeting with the remaining employees of the company Thursday, Beck stressed that...

    Glenn Beck’s struggling media project the Blaze will be conducting mass layoffs in a bid to “keep pace with the massive changes” in the media industry. “Today, we said goodbye to just over 20 percent of the combined workforce of Mercury Radio Arts and the Blaze,” Beck said in a statement Thursday regarding his television and internet operation. “We are losing a lot of talented and committed colleagues, who are some of the best human beings I know  —  some have been friends of mine for 30 years.”

    The employees of Glenn Beck’s Mercury Radio Arts and The Blaze, the privately-held companies that comprise his once thriving but now crumbling conservative media empire, suspected something bad was going to happen Thursday morning when they arrived for work at the suburban Dallas, Texas, production complex and noticed the extra compliment of security guards. By the time Beck himself spoke to his dwindling army of underlings as one of his personal bodyguards from Gavin de Becker’s celebrity protection service stood watch, nearly 60 of their coworkers had been abruptly fired—a body count that amounted to almost 30 percent of the...

    It was as inevitable as a chemical reaction: Once the tragedy in Tucson became politicized, the right would quickly come to feel aggrieved. Not everyone on the liberal side has tried to tie the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords and 19 others to the violent imagery used by Sarah Palin and other Republicans; many have been admirably restrained. But conservatives aren’t happy about the emerging narrative, and on Sunday, they started punching back. Keith Appell, a top publicist for conservative causes, declared in an email that “some in the media have implicated conservatives, the Tea Party, talk radio, Republicans, etc.” in...

    Bill O'Reilly already has his own podcasts, "No Spin News," which is a feature available to his paying subscribers. Now, he is joining forces with fellow former Fox News commentator Glenn Beck. O'Reilly and Beck have two things in common: they both served as conservative political commentators on Fox News programs and they both have podcasts. Now, according to The New York Times, O'Reilly revealed that he will be joining Beck on his podcast, "The Blaze," every week. "We're going to do that every Friday until Beck gets tired of me," O'Reilly said in his podcast. "It's a good outlet...

    Bill O’Reilly gave his first interview since his firing from Fox News in April on Glenn Beck’s radio show on Friday.Beck, while stating prior to the interview wouldn’t be about O’Reilly’s firing, nonetheless spoke to the former cable news powerhouse about his unceremonious dismissal. “Look, the entire ordeal was a hit job, and in the weeks to come, we will be able to explain some of it. It really has to do with destroying voices that the far-left doesn’t like. That’s the general tone,” O’Reilly said. O’Reilly went on to explain in vague terms “due to the legality,” of...

    The ascension of Donald Trump has given the careers of many political pundits a shot in the arm. The ascension of Trump has also given the careers of some political pundits a suckerpunch in the belly. Such is the case with #Glenn Beck, whose 9 a.m. to noon time slot on #SiriusXM has just been given to #David Webb, a conservative host largely unknown outside of the Fox News audience. According to Breitbart News, Webb will take over Beck's slot on SiriusXM's popular Patriot Channel 125 beginning this week, while Beck's show will be moved to Channel 132-- a less-popular...

    #IStandWithJimDeMint I am told that there is a coup underway by the GOP coupled with the Bannon/Brietbart alliance to take control of the Heritage Foundation. Is it the Mercer family that is behind this? The GOP didn’t like the conservative principles that Jim DeMint stood for. They claim that Jim focused on the action side and the white paper side suffered. We don’t need any more “think tanks.” The constitutional advocates need more DO Tanks!!!!! The word is that Bannon will replace DeMint at Heritage. All of that money and power in the hands of Steve Bannon is enough to...

    Like him or not, Roger Ailes built a ship at Fox News that could not to be sunk. Rupert Murdoch was part of that, but his children and wives hate Fox News. “They are embarrassed by the Fox News Channel. They’re not conservatives by any stretch of the imagination. And the big thing when I was there was, as soon as Rupert is gone, the kids are going to take over Fox News and they’re just going to clean house and stop this nonsense,” Glenn said Wednesday on radio. He also referred to Roger Ailes as a giant bear in...

    Glenn Beck, and his conservative network, TheBlaze, have filed a counterclaim against firebrand news personality Tomi Lahren after she sued the organization for wrongful termination. In her lawsuit, Lahren claimed she was terminated because of her public pro-choice stance. Beck came back swinging in a 35-page counterclaim obtained by LawNewz.com and filed in Texas court on Monday. The countersuit states that Lahren was never fired from the network. Instead, the company says the network decided to bench her from air after a slew of bad behavior including Lahren’s mistreating of staff, and making public appearances without prior approval. In addition,...

    FULL TITLE: Conservative Tomi Lahren Tries to Justify Supporting Abortion: “You Can Be Anti-Abortion and Pro-Choice” Popular young conservative commentator Tomi Lahren gave more details about her position on abortion this week during an interview with ABC News. Lahren came under fire in March after she said it was hypocritical to be both pro-life and pro-limited government, and called herself “pro-choice.” Lahren later was suspended from her show on The Blaze with pay. She now is suing her employer. “I believe you can be anti-abortion and pro-choice, and that’s where I sit,” Lahren told ABC News this week. “Personally, I...

    Glenn Beck spoke with CNN’s Anderson Cooper tonight about President Trump changing his position on issues like NATO and China this week. Beck––who also weighed in on the behind-the-scenes drama regarding Steve Bannon––said that for a lot of people, Trump was their “last hope” because of how different he was from so many other politicians. And he wondered how all those people feel today. Cooper said that it looks like Trump is now embracing positions that he successfully ran and won against. “The president,” he added, “is on the verge of beginning to look like another Republican who said stuff,...

    Tomi Lahren has filed a lawsuit against Glenn Beck and his online platform, TheBlaze, alleging wrongful termination. The conservative talk show host claims she was ousted from her program after she said she was in favor of abortion rights while appearing on ABC's "The View" on March 17. "I can't sit here and be a hypocrite and say I’m for limited government but I think the government should decide what women do with their bodies," she said on the talk show. In the 27-page lawsuit filed Friday in Dallas, Lahren's attorney said nothing in his client's employment contract prohibited Lahren's...

    Glenn Beck, who once opined that marriage equality would lead to social destruction, has changed his mind on LGBT equality. Riaz Patel, his new gay BFF, insists the transformation is sincere. The unlikely metamorphosis of Glenn Beck from nutty right-wing conspiracy-monger to rational-seeming defender of American democracy—and opponent of all things Donald Trump—has crossed over into a new frontier. The 53-year-old multimedia firebrand and self-described “catastrophist”—who shocked and possibly alienated his dwindling fan-base three months ago by forming an anti-Trump alliance with lefty satirist Samantha Bee—is these days spending quality time with a Pakistani-born, politically liberal, gay, Muslim television producer.

    In 1988, at the swearing-in ceremony for Anthony M. Kennedy, now a senior Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, President Ronald Reagan said this: The role assigned to judges in our system was to interpret the Constitution and lesser laws, not to make them. It was to protect the integrity of the Constitution, not to add to it or subtract from it — certainly not to rewrite it. In his usual manner, Ronald Reagan said it well and succinctly. The role of the Supreme Court is to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States...

    Since he left Fox News in 2011, Glenn Beck has been mending old wounds, apologizing for some of the things he said on Fox and trying to find common ground with liberal media personalities like Samantha Bee. But after repeatedly condemning candidate-and-then-President Donald Trump, Beck isn’t extending any olive branches. He has a simple answer for Trump supporters who have stopped watching his videos or listening to him on the radio. “I say this with all humility: I don’t care,” Beck said on the latest Recode Media with Peter Kafka, recorded live at South by Southwest. “Right is right, wrong...

    The Blaze founder Glenn Beck on Monday took to Twitter to question whether one of the most popular television hosts on his network was intellectually honest. Beck was criticizing Tomi Lahren, host of TheBlaze TV’s “Tomi.” Lahren has been criticized in some conservative circles after a Friday appearance on ABC’s "The View" for revealing that she supports abortion rights. “You know what? I’m for limited government, so stay out of my guns, and you can stay out of my body as well,” Lahren said. On Monday, Lahren tweeted that she has “moderate, conservative, and libertarian views.” “I'm human. I will...
