    It looks like we may soon see a merger of two of the most well-known Trump-skeptic news sites.According to the The Daily Beast, the billionaires behind Ben Shapiro’s The Daily Wire are currently in talks to buy Glenn Beck’s conservative media empire TheBlaze. As the Beast noted in their piece, the Wilks family funds Shapiro’s site and are looking to “to expand their holdings in conservative media.” They previously looked at Breitbart, but a difficult relationship with Rebekah Mercer prevented that from occurring. Shapiro didn’t exactly deny that talks are underway regarding the potential purchase of TheBlaze. Per the Beast:...

    The fracking billionaire brothers behind Shapiro’s Daily Wire website are looking to expand their conservative media holdings—that seems to include Glenn Beck’s crumbling empire. BETSY WOODRUFF LACHLAN MARKAY 02.12.18 3:35 PM ET The people who head Ben Shapiro’s conservative news site are in talks to buy Glenn Beck’s troubled media empire TheBlaze, The Daily Beast has learned. Two sources familiar with the conversations said this appears quite likely, though the deal isn’t final. Reached for comment, Shapiro—who heads The Daily Wire, which is eyeing TheBlaze—did not dispute this report.
  • Glenn Beck is afraid of AI making fake videos of him

    I was listening to Glenn Beck this month and he had an interesting topic. He said something is coming that is going to change everything as we know it and that he would explain what it is after the commercials. He said that with new AI technology it will be simple to make fake videos and fake audios showing anyone saying anything or doing anything. Unlike Photoshop, no expert could ever tell the difference from real videos. He said that since there are so many videos of him out there that it will be very easy to make a fake...

    Remember the case of the Census worker who was found hanging from a tree with the word ‘fed' scrawled across his chest? You remember - he died at the hands of right-wing commentators and anti-government tea partiers. He was killed because of an overwhelming case of right-wing paranoia. He was murdered by Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Michelle Bachmann, and Fox News. Keep this quiet though... While the death of Bill Sparkman was a media sensation for pushing anti-conservative sentiments just a couple of months ago, it is receiving little to no coverage currently. Why? Because, as investigators have recently speculated,...

    On last Friday’s edition of the Glenn Beck’s radio program, former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly doubled down on claims about the existence of an audio recording of an anti-Trump individual offering “$200,000 to file sexual harassment charges against then-presidential candidate Donald J. Trump.” "Former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly is predicting a huge onslaught against President Trump in January based around fake accusations of sexual assault as Democrats panic that Trump’s chances of re-election are surging. Warning, “There’s going to be a tremendous assault on President Trump” beginning in January, O’Reilly says Democrats now feel they must go all...

    The Blaze ^ | Oct 26, 2017 | Glenn Beck
    In 2010, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) voted to appropriate the sale of mining company Uranium One, to Russia’s nuclear agency, Rosatom, thus handing 20 percent of US uranium supply to Russia. Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on CFIUS when the committee unanimously approved the Uranium One deal. Information has recently surfaced showing that Russian officials routed millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation prior to the the Uranium One deal. Of course, there is a whole lot more to this sticky situation. As Glenn says, by way of introduction in the video above,...

    Yet another protest against the Trump administration has divided neighbor from neighbor. A yard decorated for Halloween and featuring a tombstone designated for President Donald Trump is causing controversy in a Texas town. On today’s show, Glenn voiced his frustration over this story, which reflects so much of the unnecessary conflict we see every day in our own communities. “This little rift in this small town in America … is a micro-chasm of what’s happening in our entire country,” Glenn said.

    Glenn Beck and his TV network have reached a settlement with the father of an Irving teen made famous when he was arrested in 2015 after bringing a homemade clock to school. The undisclosed settlement comes in the wake of recent appeals by Mohamed Mohamed and his son, Ahmed, of a Dallas trial judge's dismissal earlier this year of their libel claims against Beck, The Blaze and commentators Jim Hanson and Ben Shapiro, the legal news service Law360 reported.

    As far as anybody knows, the November 4th revolution/tantrum/jamboree planned by Antifa and its associate organizations remains on schedule. The “Opposition” – Antifa, the John Brown Clubs, Refuse Fascism, and assorted other scraps have announced that on that date the revolution will begin with a mass nationwide uprising that will continue until the Trump/Pence regime is overcome. Dozens of hundreds of the people’s vanguard will hit the streets, squatting at intersections and holding their breaths until the fascists are exorcised and the new epoch of light is fully underway. (Further details can be found here.) Conservatives, as is all too...

    How many times can one person claim to have had some huge epiphany and that they’re going to do things totally different from now on? Glenn Beck seems intent on finding out. About once a year he declares that he has learned from his past actions and will now be all about good things. The latest attempt at a reset: I want to get out of the “news and opinion” business and focus on “facts and perspective”. News is breaking. Let others be first. I want to be driven by facts. I want us to be right and without the...

    Even though Glenn Beck fired 30 percent of his staff at his dwindling media enterprise the Blaze Thursday afternoon, he still managed to keep his personal chef on the company payroll. The Daily Beast reported that employees who were related to Beck’s close friend Robert Shelton managed to escape the bloodbath of job cuts, including Robert’s son Matthew Shelton, who is Beck’s personal chef. Another family member who managed to survive the mass layoffs was Shelton’s daughter Bailey, who kept her job as a makeup artist. In a meeting with the remaining employees of the company Thursday, Beck stressed that...

    Glenn Beck’s struggling media project the Blaze will be conducting mass layoffs in a bid to “keep pace with the massive changes” in the media industry. “Today, we said goodbye to just over 20 percent of the combined workforce of Mercury Radio Arts and the Blaze,” Beck said in a statement Thursday regarding his television and internet operation. “We are losing a lot of talented and committed colleagues, who are some of the best human beings I know  —  some have been friends of mine for 30 years.”

    The employees of Glenn Beck’s Mercury Radio Arts and The Blaze, the privately-held companies that comprise his once thriving but now crumbling conservative media empire, suspected something bad was going to happen Thursday morning when they arrived for work at the suburban Dallas, Texas, production complex and noticed the extra compliment of security guards. By the time Beck himself spoke to his dwindling army of underlings as one of his personal bodyguards from Gavin de Becker’s celebrity protection service stood watch, nearly 60 of their coworkers had been abruptly fired—a body count that amounted to almost 30 percent of the...

    Glenn Beck‘s TheBlaze is saying farewell to 20 percent of its employees. And Beck may cry. “What happened?” he asked in a highly emotional piece that he posted to his website and to Medium that makes it sound like someone is literally ripping out his spleen. “My heart is heavy today.” “Today, we said goodbye to just over 20 percent of the combined workforce of Mercury Radio Arts and TheBlaze (with most of the changes happening at TheBlaze),” he wrote. “We are losing a lot of talented and committed colleagues, who are some of the best human beings I know — some...

    National Rifle Association spokeswoman Dana Loesch has seen Anthony Scaramucci‘s previous comments about guns, and it would seem she’s not very impressed.Shortly after Scaramucci was confirmed as the new White house Communications Director, he went on a Twitter-deletion spree where he erased some of the critical comments he previously made about President Trump. Scaramucci said he was doing this out of “full transparency,” though he also deleted other tweets where he contradicted Trump and mainstream conservatives when it comes to topics like climate change and abortion. On Saturday, the day after he became Trump’s communications director, he announced on Twitter...

Chris Gard and Connie Yates lost their final legal bid to take their son to the US for treatment....... His parents had previously seen a Supreme Court challenge to continue Charlie's life support fail. European court judges have now concluded it was most likely Charlie was 'being exposed to continued pain, suffering and distress" and undergoing experimental treatment with "no prospects of success--would offer no benefit." They said the application presented by the parents was "inadmissible" and said the court's...
