Glenn Beck named "Content Titan" alongside Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, Amazon's Jeff Bezos

The Hollywood Reporter has put Glenn Beck on an elite list of power players in the digital realm, “THR's 2012 Digital Power 50”, as one of their “Content Titans”. Glenn joins the ranks of other digital heavyweights and innovators that have founded or led companies like Facebook, Netflix, Hulu and Amazon.

Glenn was named to the list for all he has accomplished in the digital arena, including the founding of the highly successful TheBlaze.com news and information website as well as the founding of Markdown.com, the e-commerce website. Most importantly, however, the article notes the success Glenn has had in launching GBTV, an streaming HD video network that features full slate of daily original programming, most notable Glenn’s two hour “The Glenn Beck Program” at 5pm ET.

What’s even more amazing are some of the names mentioned alongside Glenn in the article. Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon.com, and Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook were both recognized along with Glenn. Other people on the list are leaders at companies across the digital realm including Netflix and Hulu.

That’s an impressive group by any measure.

The website describes the people on the list as pioneers in an industry currently gripped by fear of government regulation.

THR writes:

At any time, it seems impossible to know who's got the juice. Right now, the entertainment industry largely is operating out of fear -- witness its attempts to get Congress to back the Stop Online Piracy Act, which in many ways would curtail Internet freedom.

Digital revenues remain pennies on each dollar, but if this year's CES -- where the hottest items are web-enabled televisions -- is any indication all that could change overnight.

Which is why, instead of playing defense, Hollywood might do well to pay attention to the innovators listed below. Each has found a way to make digital technology work for them in what still is essentially the Wild West, as in, still yours for the taking.

THR writes that following Glenn’s departure from FOX News, “By September, he had launched GBTV, about which Wall Street analyst Richard Greenfield wrote, ‘Pay attention to Glenn Beck -- he's about to turn the media world upside down.’ Two weeks later, GBTV, which applies the cable model to an online property, boasted 230,000 subscribers, each paying $5 to $10 per month.”

Whether you love Glenn or you hate him, its undeniable that Glenn and his team’s approach to creating and distributing content is cutting edge and revolutionary. After all, the other people named in the list have all revolutionized their fields. Hulu and Netflix have turned brick and mortar video stores into a dying industry, while millions of people use Facebook to connect with their friends in ways never thought possible just a few years ago.

With GBTV still in it’s infancy and already being considered revolutionary, one has to wonder what will happen as it continues to grow.

Glenn has said before that his primary concern is with creating amazing content, not necessarily in how it’s delivered.

“I consider ourselves more a storytelling company and a content company. The way we deliver it is secondary,” he told a digital media conference in November.

While Glenn focuses on creating content, his team of over one hundred employees at Mercury Radio Arts focuses on getting that content out over GBTV, books, radio, live events and numerous websites including Glennbeck.com and The Blaze.com. The Mercury Radio Arts team is based primarily out of New York City, while Glenn and his “experimental creative team” have recently moved to Dallas, TX. In Texas, Glenn and his team plan to create content unlike anything that has ever been seen before.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."
