How Glenn Beck Makes His Money

Beck insists that he is not political: “I could give a flying crap about the political process.” Making money, on the other hand, is to be taken very seriously, and controversy is its own coinage. “We’re an entertainment company,” Beck says. He has managed to monetize virtually everything that comes out of his mouth. He gets $13 million a year from print (books plus the ten-issue-a-year magazine Fusion). Radio brings in $10 million. Digital (including a newsletter, the ad-supported and merchandise) pulls in $4 million. Speaking and events are good for $3 million and television for $2 million.

    Glenn is just a Rush wannabe. I don't listen to either of them. Any of them. I make up my own reasons for thinking the things I do.

    Glenn Beck operates using the "There's a sucker born every minute" theory. He makes his money because soooo many people buy his blather. If you agree 100% with Beck – one of you is not thinking.

    PT Barnum is the source of the sucker comment. He was a great entertainer. I have no problem with anyone who can write a book, sing a song, make a movie, host a TV show etc and make money. Doesn't matter if you are Lady GaGa, Glen Beck, John Steinbeck or Steven Speilberg – not all entertainers suit everybody all the time.

    My comment about agreeing with GB 100% of the time applies to anyone agreeing 100% of the time with anyone else. My point: Use the brain God gave you, for goodness sake. No double standard at all.

    So you have a problem with Beck earning money on his books, etc. but you probably don't have a problem with Al Gore making millions on the fallacy of Global Warming. Liberal double standard, as usual.
