BECKTOPIA

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

“Hello Amer­ica, and wel­come to the first episode, and to the fu­ture. This is GBTV, and the truth. . . . We don’t treat you like mo­rons.”

Those were Glenn Beck’s first words on the de­but of his new, high-def­i­ni­tion net­work at 5 p.m. on Sept. 12. The cen­ter­piece is the daily two-hour “Glenn Beck Pro­gram,” broad­cast live from a quirky New York City set that in­cludes model air­planes, a chalk­board, an Ori­en­tal rug, vin­tage ra­dios, old tele­phones, an an­tenna TV, mul­ti­ple video screens and a rapt stu­dio au­di­ence. The for­ward-think­ing Mr. Beck charges $5 a month for online ac­cess to this hy­brid me­dia ven­ture, which has drawn at­ten­tion from in­dus­try in­sid­ers for both its busi­ness model and big in­ten­tions.
