Because There Isn’t Enough Crazy On TV Already
I hereby fully endorse the creation of a Glenn Beck cable and/or internet channel. As a matter of fact, I think it’s easily his best idea EVER.
Mr. Beck has been contemplating a cable channel of his own for more than a year, according to the people who have spoken with him about it, who spoke on condition of anonymity. Mr. Beck may not be able to actively pursue such an arrangement until his Fox contract is up.
People who have spoken to Mr. Beck say that neither option — a cable channel or what would essentially be an Internet channel — would be aimed at competing with Fox News, which is enormously popular on cable. Rather, it would try to extract more value out of Mr. Beck’s loyal fans. The comparison to Mr. Stern may be apt: his audience on satellite radio is smaller than it was on terrestrial radio, but the profits are higher.
Oh yea… then he could really fleece his dumb-fuck audience. Priceless.
To help get this project off the ground as soon as possible, I would like to offer the following piece of promotional marketing material as a first step to get some “buzz” going.
Now the real challenge is going to be finding enough crazy to fill 24 hours of broadcast time everyday without having to fill it with random you-tube clips of drunk Santas pissing in public and emotionally disturbed teenagers destroying things. I’m betting Glenny can pull it off.
Can anyone say “Charlie Sheen Reality Show”?!
Just think, the more money Beck fans spend on idiotic self-help books, surplus MREs, and Dale Earnhardt commemorative plates, the less they’ll give to right-wing PACs and lobbyists. You go Glenn, the Rubes are waiting.
