Glenn Beck's "The Blaze" may soon be headed to that great Right Wing graveyard in the sky.

Courtesy of HuffPo: 

Glenn Beck’s website The Blaze is coming apart, suffering from a lack of editorial direction, staff attrition and internal discord, according to sources inside the news outlet. 

The site, which Beck launched in 2010 to serve as the conservative counterpart to The Huffington Post, has dropped from 25 employees on its editorial side to just six. A source inside The Blaze, who requested anonymity for fear of retribution, told HuffPost that the mood among the rapidly diminishing news team is somber. 

“The few people who are still left are looking for an exit because they know The Blaze is over,” the source said. “They haven’t told us straight up that they’re done with us, but all the signs point to it, and they’re not replacing people who are laid off or get out.” 

Other sources at the site say that reporters were notified in September that their phone and travel stipends had been eliminated. They were also notified over the summer that their health benefits would be reduced. 

The Blaze officially closed its New York newsroom, a 35,000-square-foot space in Manhattan, in June. The remaining employees are working from their homes.

HuffPo points out that at one time The Blaze was the gold standard of conservative new outlets and at one time had over 31 million visitors in one month.

However one thing I do know about running a website is that visitor numbers can fluctuate greatly in a very short time, ESPECIALLY when you are discussing sensitive and emotional topics.

I am not a fan of Glenn Beck's by any stretch of the imagination, and I could really care less if his little media empire disintegrates all around him, however if I were a friend I would tell him to sit tight and cut back where he needs to, because after the Donald Trump campaign crashes and burns he is going to seem like a pudgy overly emotional Nostradamus.

And those that abandoned him will slowly start to trickle back over after they recover from the shock of being so incredibly stupid that they bought Trump's bullshit.

If that doesn't work he can always sit in his house and bitch on Facebook to his few remaining fans.

After all look how well that worked out for Sarah Palin.

    For a man who claims he is a fiscal conservative, Glenn Beck spent his money like a drunken sailor thinking the revenue would never stop.

    Couldn't have happened to a bigger asshole. Speaking of asses, SarahPAC Quarterly Report is due any day now. Can you say Chapter 7 liquidation? Used postal meters just pennies on the dollar and all sales cash only!

      PAC's don't have to utilize bankruptcy to liquidate assets, instead the PAC merely ceases business, closes shop, and all remaining assets become the private property of the PAC owner.

    Chris Christie is a entitled @$$hole!

    "Stark said Curley called him with a "curt" message after Sandy because Curley believed Christie was taking credit for recovery efforts in the aftermath of the 2012 storm, when local elected officials like Curley were doing the work on the ground."

    According to Stark's testimony, Curley said, referring to Christie, "Who does that fat fuck think he is?"


    Stark, a former regional director in the governor’s Office of Intergovernmental Affairs, said Christie then called Curley to express his displeasure.

    Who the fuck do you think you are calling me a fat fuck?" Stark testified Christie said. "I'm the fucking governor of this state."

    Christie then told Curley to be at an event in Keansburg the next day or "I will fucking destroy you" with robo calls to tell Republicans not to vote for him, Stark testified. Curley was seeking reelection in 2012."


    The fats in the fire!

    To the US media who destroys pretty much anyone for click revenue, the reason we have an extrema narcissist, a sociopath, and a dumbass libertarian is because you scare good people off.

    1. A person is allow to have any past and no one deserves judgment for that past. You accept Hillary, who is still married to a man who gropes assistants in public and has likely had people killed. You accept presidents who were coke dealers. WHO CARES. Stop destroying.

    Concentrate on WORDS and PRESENT actions.

      There is nothing sane about your 3rd grader's rant. Try proofreading your stupidity before posting.

    2. I can't believe that every sane American took the time to write a comment on my little ole blog.

      I also cannot believe they can all use the same keyboard at the same time.

      President Obama was a coke dealer? Yeah, right. All in your pea-brained head.

      As for Hillary,that she chose to keep her marriage vow, "for better for worse," is HER business and none of yours.

      Likely murdered?! Please refer to paragraph one.

    4. "American" and "Sane" in the same sentence? You must be a foreigner

    For the Blaze employees who lost their health care benefits, there's still the affordable care act.

    I remember hating Beck so much and thoroughly enjoying Jon Stewart's imitations using the blackboard (such good stuff).

    Then, something happened. With the Trump campaign/candidacy, Beck became someone else, someone who could be intelligent and coherent and who even MSNBC would invite on from time to time (I saw him on MSNBC a couple weeks back too).

    Yeah, Beck should wait this out and see what happens next.

    1. Yep, I agree..Beck showed more stones than I thought he had by sticking to his guns about much as it made me sick to my stomach, I had a small, very small tinge of respect for Cruz (Gulp) when he backed off Trump, but then he folded like the rest of the right-wing sycophants...

    If Sarah wasn't bone-lazy she could have taken over the Blaze by now with her defunct little bloggy national news network thingy, whatever it was.

      if she had answers for what ails this country, she would have started with her own family. What an effed up tribe! All she has left is ScreechBook.

    Yes, Hillary eats grandmas for breakfast and that's exactly the kind of president i want for my country.

    Otherwise, your post is gibberish and you don't speak for me.

    If you're going to hold Hillary responsible for Bill's shenanigans, then you have to hold Trump responsible for Melania's...

      ....or hold Melanie responsible for Trump's shenanigans...sheesh!

    Latest update on the Sarah Palin Effect-

    "LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – A candidate for Kentucky’s state House is making no apologies for shocking images found on his Facebook page.

    Dan Johnson is a Republican challenging an incumbent Democrat in the 49th district, which includes much of Bullitt County.

    He is also bishop of the Heart of Fire Church in southeast Louisville."

    Here's your Kinfucky!

    "WDRB’s Lawrence Smith showed him printouts of images he's either posted or shared, such as a photo of a chimpanzee, labeled as a baby picture of President Barack Obama.

    Another image had ape-like features photo-shopped onto pictures of the Obama family.

    “It wasn't meant to be racist. I can tell you that. My history's good there. I can see how people would be offended in that. I wasn't trying to offend anybody, but, I think Facebook's entertaining,” Johnson said.

    When pressed, Johnson would not acknowledge that the images crossed the line. He calls it satire."

    Oh yeah- He's a Kinfucky 'Murrican!

    Johnson's Facebook page also contains numerous images of the confederate flag.

    "“That flag was for state rights. The reason it is under attack now is we're being attacked as state rights and constitutionalists. We are being attacked,” Johnson said."

      Holy Jeebus!

      Can't make this chit up!

      "Heart of Fire Church in Louisville, Kentucky is known as a ‘biker church’. In fact, half of the church is an actual biker bar. This means is that if you’re a tattooed, sunburnt gun-toting, leather-wearing biker that might get kicked out of a regular church, you’re definitely welcome at Heart of Fire."

      That treasonous rag stands for the worst thing that ever happened to our country. It should be torn down and burned wherever it is found today.

      I'm sure he believes that.

      There have been scientific studies that certain right win nutjobs don't have the capacity to recognize or understand satire, parody and other forms of humor requiring higher order thinking skills.

    The Blaze is going to hell? The only downside is it's not taking vicks vaporub beck with it.

  14. Well, am I ever heartbroken.

    I have a neighbor who has a yard sign . . . it's been in his yard for 3-4 years . . . that reads: "Please listen to Glenn Beck."

    I can hardly wait until tomorrow morning when I show him that Beck's empire is collapsing.

    Love that picture of Sarah the Cadaver.

  18. Love him or hate him, Beck is one of the few who stuck to his guns. We all knew most of the right-wing grifters had no spine, but Beck surprised me, and I'll always have just a wee bit of respect for him because of it.
