TheBlaze dominates competitors in social media buzz

Two years ago, Glenn launched the news and information website TheBlaze. Today, TheBlaze is surpassing its conservative competitors by many measures on social media.

Friday, Buzzfeed published a report created by an organization that measures social media response and media organizations called Newswhip.

The report split the news organizations up into the right and the left. Huffington Post was the clear leader among the left, and the overall leaders. But on the right, the report showed TheBlaze as the clear leader in almost every category.

"I want you to know this is not just about TheBlaze," Glenn told listeners. "What this is is when I you got into this, I said we have to change the culture of the conservative dialogue.  We have to get people engaged online.  We have to get people to behave differently online and spread the word on things."

One of the key stats the report looked at is 'Social Reach': who's getting the most interactions overall. TheBlaze was measured against Breitbart, Fox News, Twitchy, and Townhall on the right. On the left, the competition was HuffPo, The Maddow Blog, Daily Kos, Think Progress, and Mother Jones. HuffPo, who is AOL-Time Warner, came in first on the left, TheBlaze came in first on the right and 2nd overall.

The next section was 'Most Loved,' which the report defined as the most social bang for the buck. Essentially, how many interactions you have per story.

TheBlaze was the winner in this category on both the right and the left.

The last category is 'Most Read Stories,' basically the stories that got the right and left clicking the most.

The number one story went to Fox News -- an exclusive on the Benghazi attack. The number two and three stories went to TheBlaze.

"The reason why we tell you this is we, A, want to thank you for reading TheBlaze, interacting with TheBlaze;" Glenn said to his radio audience. "But two, keep going.  In just two very short years, we're already making an impact.  We're already changing the way.  I'm telling you, anybody who is smart on the left looked at that report on Friday and went, "Oh, dear God, I wish he was just on at 5:00 on Fox News."  It's beginning to happen."

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
