Thanks for the heads-up.

I watched Levin and Heather MacDonald last night--- scary & awesome, that woman's message!

Let's hope their combined reporting is more honest than Beck's record.

Are you serious? I find it odd that you leftists will dig head long to find an inaccuracy on the right, while ignoring the daily lies produced by the left.
Let us take the most egregious lies politifact claims Beck made.

In fact, he was factually correct, it was the DNC spin machine that helped disuse the end results.

Beck's biggest problem is he has become preachy and a bit sanctimonious. We already have a John Kasich. We don't need another.

I tend to read the comments section of most articles to get a feel for what people actually think about it. I read about this merger on a number of different sites and one thing seemed to permeate most of the comments. That was that original CRTV subscribers are dropping their subscriptions. Most said they didn't like the fact that he merged with Beck. I know that many don't like Beck due to his hysterics but over time Beck has been correct about more than a few things. Just my two cents.

He is definitely genius level, but his emotional commitment to his beliefs tend to push many away, like his never trumper status. When the majority of us who didn't originally support trump, he is still the president, and deserves at least that much, but Beck held on like a leech, and whining the entire time about it,, even at the risk of ruining his career, and those that work for him with families to feed..
I admire people that stand by their convictions, but Trump proved himself in short order but Beck refused to budge, like that of a spoiled child.

I still tune in occasionally, but as a viewer, he lost me.

Mark Levin was also a never Trumper but once he started to see the results he came around fairly fast. He still knocks Trump on occation when it's deserved but he really goes to bat for him over this Russia witch hunt. Maybe Levin can temper Beck a little.

I think that's exactly what's going to happen. I have a feeling Beck was getting desperate because he pissed off the majority of his audience, and CRTV sees a good engine for growth considering all the money Beck sunk into his studio and network.
I believe this is a great merger, keep Glenn in the background working on what he does best, building the industry, and let Levin run the content.

Perhaps CRTV should buy the Weekly Standard and fire everyone except Bill Kristol. Someone has to make the tea.
