Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, April 17, 2018

Glenn Beck, then enigmatic conservative media firebrand, appears to be selling off his assets as his media enterprise downsizes. Earlier this year, Beck engaged in conversations with popular right-wing pundit Ben Shapiro to buy or partner with Beck's right-leaning news network The Blaze, which has been hit with several rounds of massive layoffs over the past three years.

I would hardly call selling off a few high-priced and completely non-essential assets "going broke".

-Glenn Beck is going broke

That was my first thought when I saw this advertised on a billboard near my house - entertainment.sltrib.com

It's literally a self-fulfilling prophecy.

I would agree, but folks like Trump and Bezos? Yeah, they'd be sayin' he's going broke.

That's a big Ego Blow for someone like him. He's on a sinking ship - I remember when Gateway did it. That was a sinking ship.

If he gets rid of his jet, he'd be more woke on the environment than liberal hero Algore.

This is the jet that racism bought.

Yeah just as soon as he saves millions of tons of C02 from entering the atmosphere like algore has.

He should take it out for one last flight, Joe Stack style.

Buying indulgences doesn't save the planet when peer reviewed. Those trees they plant are chopped down and burnt for firewood.

I feel an opening in the White House Communications Office about to be filled...

It could also mean the audience for talk radio is finally burning out.

Good.

Means more Mexican and Indian music on my AM radio.

I don't know how Beck even has an audience. He's a fraud.

Glenn falling to a place in his life where he has to sell valuable assets like his jet makes me want to take Vics Vaporub and put it on my eyes so I could cry.

Unless business flying is making money, aircraft ownership is a drag on finances.
Beck is smart to get out now and leave the hangering, deflated tires, insurance, A&P mechanic and crew costs for someone else.
I'm surprised that his jet wasn't leased so he could have let it fly itself back home.
