Glenn Beck is Bankrupting Himself for You

In this delightfully absurd and self-aggrandizing clip from his show, Glenn Beck poses as both martyr and savior. He says he’s trying to fundamentally change the media and he’s “hemorrhaging money” because he believes in something so important. That’s nonsense, by the way. His net worth has skyrocketed. But he’s doing this all just for you. How moving.


About Ed Brayton

After spending several years touring the country as a stand up comedian, Ed Brayton tired of explaining his jokes to small groups of dazed illiterates and turned to writing as the most common outlet for the voices in his head. He has appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show and the Thom Hartmann Show, and is almost certain that he is the only person ever to make fun of Chuck Norris on C-SPAN.

    Actually, I think his net worth has declined from a bit over $100 million down to about $80 million. The poor guy…

    and he’s “hemorrhaging money” because he believes in something so important.

    According to Google, Beck’s net worth is about $100 million and going up rapidly.

    His networks are quite successful and growing at a high rate of 45% a year.

    Yeah, it’s very moving. As in “bowel movement.”

    Clearly the poor guy put his money into the gold “investments” he’s been touting. Pity him.


  • Mr Ed

    Glenn Beck subscribes to the P. T. Barnum school of political commentary. I would not be surprise if he brought out the Tea party Flea circus or the two head dog of family values if it brought in viewers. Anything for a buck

    Hey, he’s going to get the Moon to speak on July 4th. Do you have any idea how expensive it is to book Luna as a guest?

    We’re all gonna die. How’s that one?

    Where do these insights come from? How does he know such things?

    Glenn baby, just right me a check. A couple of mil will do it. You’ll save money in the long run. Thanks in advance.

  • oranje

    Nice of him to do that. I encourage him to keep going until every cent is gone. Thanks, Glenn.

    Here’s an idea Glenny. Send all your money to charity, like Médecins Sans Frontières for example.

    Hell we’ll even throw in a cardboard box as future accommodation for you, how about that?
