Glenn Beck Relaunching The Blaze As Global Libertarian News Network

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 in that crazy space as a network,” he said, adding, “I consider myself a libertarian… I’m a lot closer to Penn Jillette than I am to Chuck Hagel.”

He said over the next 60 days, The Blaze will open three foreign bureaus in cities that are “important to America.” He will also relocate his New York staff from their current midtown offices into a building that will “send a very clear message to everyone in New York… it will piss everyone off.”

Beck also showed a teaser for a new nightly 30-minute newsmagazine show called For the Record.

  • Like Donald Trump, Glenn Beck knows how to get attention and maintain edgy respect. Nobody knows what Libertarian really is anymore than they know what Hagel really is. Glenn Beck is brilliant, insightful, uncannily right in his predictions and his shows are always entertainig. More power to him.

  • I love what he is doing!!!! Go Glenn, with you 100 %

    What a joke. Beck a libertarian? Libertarians don’t believe in the aggressive use of force, and Beck is all for it. Libertarians don’t believe in offensive wars, Beck is all for it. Glenn Beck is following the money, that’s it.
    Why didn’t he support the most Libertarian champion of Liberty, Ron Paul, for president? Why did he call Ron Paul a nut, a kook, and Ron Paul’s supporters “lunatics”? Beck is in it for money, NOTHING else. It’s so obvious.
