How much did Forbes get paid to publish this?

Because the article below, my friends, is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever read:

Love him or hate him, Glenn Beck has transcended television and proven that with a big enough personality you can outplay big media. After leaving Fox in 2011, Beck cracked the Internet content puzzle and managed to make money with his website The Blaze, where subscribers are willing to pay $100 per year for his online videos. The $90 million he raked in this year earned him the number 34 spot on FORBES’ Celebrity 100.

“The secret is can you have more than 15 minutes of fame,” Beck says. He should know. Next up for the conservative commentator is his own cable network with Dish, and there are plans to venture into movies, as well scripted television. But Beck swears his company won’t become “what we’ve just left.”


Annnnnd, We’re Off!

I suppose this is my first post on my brand-new blog.

While the intention of it is to be about quite a lot of things, it likely will center around news and politics.

That said:

I have quite a lot of respect for journalists and professionals of all kinds, but NO ONE is perfect and it is the best thing for everybody to remain skeptical. So, while a current debate rages over who’s a hero or villain, I say, “I’m with Carlin.”
