Forbes once again names Glenn one the most powerful celebrities – See who he beat out

On Monday, Forbes released its annual “Celebrity 100” list ranking the world’s “most powerful celebrities.” You may recall Glenn came at number 34 on the list last year. This year he is ranked 39th in the world, coming in ahead of future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning, actor Leonardo DiCaprio, and late night host Jimmy Fallon among others.

Forbes describes Glenn as a “personality” based in television, but it does highlight his ever-growing media empire:

The ubiquitous right-winger keeps raking in profits from The Blaze, his hugely successful video and news site which features conservative-leaning content available online. The Blaze is also now on Dish Network following Beck’s 2012 campaign to bring his programming to TV screens. He makes a small fortune annually from his publishing imprint Mercury Ink, which he owns in partnership with Simon & Schuster, and his eponymous syndicated radio show.

Pop star Beyoncé topped this year’s list with estimated earnings of $115 million. NBA star LeBron James, music mogul Dr. Dre, and TV personalities Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres round out the top five. Radio hosts like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity came in at numbers 59 and 86 respectively.

Check out the entire list HERE.

    Glenn your self flatulence of your ego is only exceeded by the narcissist in chief Obama. Do you wake up and pat yourself on the back every morning and look in the mirror like tavis miley used to do on snl and say “Darnit people like me”?

    I wonder if Pat and Stu still have the douche wall of shame? If so you belong high on the list. How dare you come on this site and berate Glenn, when he spends all his time and money to bring the truth to your dopey butt? Either get a grip or go to where they like your ilk. We here don’t need this kind of idiotic drivel.

    Glen is a remarkable hero. He is constantly bashed or ignored by the same Lefties& media are taking this country to ruin. It was Glenn who clarified to the world what 17 trillion dollar debt is in reality. It’s about 7 Trillion dollars. The US debt is more that twice as much as all the mined gold in the world. Democrats say “No Problem.”

    Thank heaven we have brilliant people to look up to for roll-models the likes of Beyonce and LeBron James. They are so enlightened on the ways of the world.

    God help us if that is the best we have to teach us what is important.

    Seriously landofaahs? If Glenn’s standing in the top100 bothers you….then go somewhere else! Not only are you rude and disrespectful but irritating as well. Ahb111 sums it up well.

    I agree. I do accuse others of what I am “Capable” of understanding. If I could not understand, how could I accuse?

  • landofaahs

    And you scan the maxi-pad.

  • landofaahs

    When you put it that way, it doesn’t sound so bad. Thanks.

    To call me a lib only points to your extreme lack of ever having read my posts. Glenn is more liberal than I am.

    landofaahs, Glenn’s “Salvation Army” equivalent, Mercury One, helped provide generators in the aftermath of hurricanes and power outages. He hasn’t taken a paycheck in THREE YEARS! I’m not saying he’s as humble as Jesus, but he’s a lot more humble than most people. And can you please provide some evidence of Glenn’s ‘self flatulent ego’? I mean really. Don’t insult me, don’t scream at me, just provide some evidence of your accusation.

    What little I have read of your writing, gives me no interest in reading any other of your writing!
    I have found that people whom proclaim what they are, are seldom as they portray themselves to be.
    What I do know is you are unknown, Glen is working at being known and working at doing something worthwhile. Maybe not the perfect something every time, and I do not agree with him every time, but he has done something and often more than something worthwhile!
    So when you are able to show just how valuable you are to correcting the ills of our society as it currently stands, then I will look for more of your work, until then Glen wins out for someone I will read and listen to, if for no other reason than to see just how much he and I agree on a point!

  • Janean Guy

    He does make the money but plows it right back into his projects.

  • Janean Guy

    You really didn’t say anything worth responding to, fool. It was just nasty talk.

  • Janean Guy

    No one is telling you or requiring you to buy any of those quality products. There are retailers, I assume, in your community where you can shop. And you can shope from multiple places online. What people don’t seem to understand is that Glenn does pull in the money, but he pays his many employees well, donates to and supports charities, and then plows almost everything else back into his businesses and projects.

    Anyone who needs a media darling/radio/tv talk show host as a role-model and/or to tell them what and how to think is in serious trouble. Again tilting at windmills is what GeeBee does best.

  • Anonymous

    Come on…Glenn is a millionaire. .and that’s ok. And he does put money into his projects. .to make more money. Mother Teresa he’s not. He does give back, which is admirable. But in context, it’s no more than what millions of Americans do as well. Please don’t act like he isn’t living the good life.

    Ok, I see that fact checking is not your thing so let me help. You are confusing Tavis with that other commie liberal Al Franken and the character Al created on SNL i.e. Stuart Smalley. And a book he wrote, Al that is,

    “I’m Good Enough, I’m Smart Enough, and Doggone It, People Like Me!: Daily Affirmations with Stuart Smalley.”

    But as Saint Reagan once proclaimed “Facts are stupid things”.

    Yes, unlike the highly intelligent debate that goes on here at Glenn Beck Land. For instance.

    “Real classy a**hole. Go back under the rock you crawled out from under.”
    “penis envy?”

    I have little in common with landofaahs usually, but your reply to him is beyond the pale. You have absolutely no idea what he does or doesn’t do in his life to “cure the ills” of this world. He’s entitled to express his opinions as much as anyone else. Wether you agree or not is irrelevant. Check the posts. .he was the one attacked with childish name calling. ..

    Go to any page on Glenn’s website and count the number of photos that are of or contain images of Glenn Beck.

    Rush’s webpage does GB even better with 14 photos of El Rushbo. Advice: try harder.

    BillO is the picture of modesty with only 2 photos of himself.

    OMG..read the posts. I think it’s great he’s making a boat load of money ! But these folks that profess he gives it all back are ridiculous. And the MR. HITLER was totally uncalled for. . but certainly not a surprise

    I agree with you. My point was, let’s not act like he isn’t making money off it. It’s perfectly fine. .but acknowledge it for what it is. His is a for profit company that gives back. Kudos. But this “hasn’t taken a paycheck in 3 yrs ” is ludicrous

    Although I see you are just bombing this site with anti-Glenn comments..I’m good with that. Do you. And I actually agree with you in this case. Truth should always be in quotes when discussing Glenn Beck. My bad..

    The Mickster99=Room Temperature IQ and all that….poor little Mick, his half breed Kenyan Half Wit is a total failure…about time for both to head back to the Chicago area and resume their lives as Bath House Queens….

  • Pat Houseworth

    Anybody that looks to a half witted Kenyan fool as a hero needs to rethink their lives….Obammy is about 7% African Black….50% Marxist White, and 43% Goat Fornicating Islamic Arab….but the Mickster and Company think of him as our First “Black” Prez….my white ass has more real Black Ancestors that this fool….

    So sez the Mickster, who borrowed Monica’s Used Kneepads so he can service his half breed half witted Kenyan Fool….

    The Pope is a Marxist in bed with Islam….you are right, Beck, who I disagree with about 50% of the time, is not the Pope, thank God!

    Right…. Catholic Pope is secretly in league with Muslims. And you wonder why the left is able to rag on the right. ..SMH. Just more fuel for the fire

  • landofaahs

    What was so nasty that I said? I mean really, was me calling Glenn a narcissist which he is by any fair measure or you calling me a fool which God says you are in danger of hell fire when you call someone that?

  • landofaahs

    It’s the same rules as in Obamastan.

  • landofaahs

    I fail to see what a p-nis has to do with anything, I envy no pr-ck like you or Glenn.

  • landofaahs

    I’m not unknown. I know exactly who I am. It’s Glenn who doesn’t know who he is by his own words. He can’t even decide what kind of attire is his style. Now there are many times I agree with Glenn and I say so. But why would I be dishonest or afraid to speak when I disagree with him. And I could care less who you listen to or don’t listen to. That is your business. Besides, since you admit you don’t know who I am, how can you say I am not making a difference? I could be a famous person expressing in secret what I also express in public. Beside, I don’t ask you to subscribe to anything I sell or ask for money or anything from you.

  • landofaahs

    Oh yes. And you calling me an a**hole just overflows with class huh. Why don’t you jump on your broom and fly away?

  • landofaahs

    Who but a narcissist posts others who agree with him? Who has his picture plastered all over everything he touches? And yes being humble is just one of his qualities. What good we do should be done in secret as Jesus said. If not then we have our reward. That reward is the reward of men. Remember what Jesus said about doing the good deeds in secret and not putting them out there before men.

  • landofaahs

    Yes. That’s him. You knew he was even though I got the name wrong and so you were able to draw the similarities between the two on your own. You did my fact finding for me. Thank You.

  • landofaahs

    Or “nobody is talking about this” when I read the same stories on Zero Hedge, Breitbart, Drudge, CNS or some other source. Hyperbole maybe but not when you do it all the time. It just becomes self promotion in a dishonest way. But Glenn has some good points. He usually repeats the story correctly.

  • Anonymous

    Yes, Glenn is influential and good. He is a leader. I appreciate greatly the contribution and example he sets, along with his people.

  • tony d

    Thank you! Why is it that the conservatives that actually fight back
    end up making bad arguments half the time? We’ve got the facts on our side,
    Why on earth pat would you bring up the stupid Muslim thing when
    There’s 634,537 actually provable arguments against him. He hates capitalism and doesn’t like our constitution…. isn’t that WAAAY more then enough?

    Yet there’s still that defamation lawsuit out there and it doesn’t appear likely that it will be dismissed. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of an impact a guilty verdict will have on Beck’s empire.

    Ok I went to Glenn’s homepage and counted 5 photos of him, including news stories.

    I went do Rush’s page and, indeed, he had 13 photos of himself.

    Um, I did I also mention that Glenn’s trying to run a company here? I don’t hold a degree in business or marketing or anything, but I do know that most businesses trying to sell things usually have a brand name or a face that we can associate with them and their company. I’m guessing that that’s what Glenn and Rush are doing.

  • Gary

    landofaahs, like what I told mickster99, Glenn’s trying to run a company. It’s hard to help people and cooperate with other, better-known companies when they don’t know who you are. Same thing with news stories: Do you think that Glenn would be able to have David Barton on his program if he was unknown? I think that most of what “Narcissistic” Glenn does, he does for marketing to fund “Humble” Glenn so he can help the people who need help.
