"Glenn Beck forging a new internet frontier"

GBTV has been getting a lot of attention in the media the past few days. With Glenn moving to Texas and setting up shop at his new studios, Amy Holmes debating a Current's David Shuster on CNN, and the network launching a slate of new original programs on Wednesday - people in the media are tuning into what is happening with Glenn Beck and his team.

One blogger, Marcus Carey, has penned a review of the network on KyForward.com. He writes:

I’m sure a lot of people thought Daniel Boone was crazy.  He blazed a trail through rugged mountain passes in order to bring people yearning for freedom and independence into a world inhabited by hostile ptribes.

He was a visionary who saw the potential of the rich environment which was at the time unexplored, uncharted and yet filled with bounty, if only he could bring people with him to put down roots in a strange and uncertain place.

We now exalt Daniel Boone for his courage, his vision and his stamina.  We credit him with much of the settlement of America west of the Alleghenies.

A few months back I wrote about Glenn Beck’s move from Fox News to his new online venture at GBTV.  I reminded folks how UHF channels offered the first competition to the three big broadcast networks, then how cable TV opened up a new frontier for expanded programming, only to be vastly improved upon by satellite television offerings.

I opined that Glenn Beck’s vision to take his show to the Internet was groundbreaking, filled with potential and could change everything.

At first when I logged in to watch his show I was less than impressed. Sure, he had a nice studio, good lighting, expensive cameras and his “live streaming” technology seemed to be cutting edge.  But the show wasn’t comfortable to watch on my computer screen, nor was his content up to his old standards at Fox.

But then Glenn moved his family and his operation to Texas and this week he is launching his “dream” from an amazing studio in Dallas called “The Planning Office”.  I just finished watching his entire two hour program and had to share my experience with the world.  In short it was “WOW”!

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
