Glenn Beck to Relaunch The Blaze

Another year, another reinvention by Glenn Beck? The former Fox News host announced Tuesday that he will relaunch his media company, The Blaze, as a libertarian network over the next 60 days. He said he will also open three foreign bureaus in cities “important to America,” relocate his staff from their New York offices, and debut a newsmagazine show that he called “our Nightline.” Standing in front of a split screen with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews on one side and his former colleague Sean Hannity on the other, Beck said cable news is now “the far left [and] far right … yelling at each other,” and he insisted “we’re not going to play in that crazy space as a network.”
