King v. Beck

Can’t wait to hear the Beckophiles howl about how unfair it is to run actual clips of their hero’s bigotry and madness.

    Great to see you here!

    Yeah, Beck admits he’s a huckster in his recent Forbes interview:

    “I could give a flying crap about the political process.” Making money, on the other hand, is to be taken very seriously, and controversy is its own coinage. “We’re an entertainment company,” Beck says. He has managed to monetize virtually everything that comes out of his mouth. He gets $13 million a year from print (books plus the ten-issue-a-year magazine Fusion). Radio brings in $10 million. Digital (including a newsletter, the ad-supported Glennbeck.com and merchandise) pulls in $4 million. Speaking and events are good for $3 million and television for $2 million.

    He started out as a shock jock, became a drug addict, went dry and converted to Mormonism. That combined with his narcissistic personality disorder explains a lot in my book.

    BTW, it was good seeing you at UCLA.

    Cheers.
