Glenn Beck Launches News and Opinion Website

TheBlaze083110.bmpFox News Channel host Glenn Beck is launching a news and information website, which he is calling The Blaze.

Scott Baker, form Breitbart TV, will serve as editor.

Mediaite’s Steve Krakauer spoke to Baker about the site. Baker explains what sorts of items it would cover:

“It’ll be news and information. Some commentary and opinion stories we’re interested in that are being under-covered or not covered.”

Of the five most “popular” stories listed to the right of the page, all of them are about Glenn Beck or Beck’s rally from over the weekend.

Launch sponsors appear to be Goldline, which is a regular advertiser on beck’s radio and television programs, and Dick Armey‘s new book Give Us Liberty.
