Glenn Beck’s Empire Crumbles! Media Company Lays Off 20% Of It’s Employees

Glenn Beck has managed to make the biggest mess out of what was once a great idea. People loved him for his brave straight talk. He exposed corruption in government and around the world that most people couldn’t even dream up. What happened to this guy?

After he left FOX and started his own media company, he enjoyed great meteoric success. But he seems to be plummeting just as fast as he rose to fame.

Breitbart reports the latest hit to the Glenn Beck empire.

Nationally syndicated radio host Glenn Beck announced Thursday afternoon that his media company The Blaze had laid off over one fifth of its workforce.

“What happened? My heart is heavy today,” begins a post from Beck on his news website.

“We are losing a lot of talented and committed colleagues, who are some of the best human beings I know,” Beck writes “Some have been friends of mine for 30 years.”

The employees who were let go include faces of the business like radio host Mike Opelka and staff writer Brandon Morse, who starred in online videos discussing cultural issues.

There were a lot of issues and a long line of bad decisions that led to the downfall of the Glenn Beck empire, but perhaps the nail in the coffin was his vitriolic response to Donald Trump.

However, once Donald Trump won the primary, Beck refused to endorse the GOP nominee and became a leading voice of the “Never Trump” movement. He lashed out at perceived pro-Trump forces such as Breitbart News, Steve Bannon, Matt Drudge, Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, and Republican voters.

Beck also baffled fans and foes alike when he lavished praise on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg — a rising star among globalistpro-censorship elites — after several reports claimed the social networking site had censored conservative news websites from its Trending News widget. Beck and other conservative media figures visited Facebook HQ to discuss the issue, and the radio host said afterward he found no fundamental ideological differences with the tech giant’s employees. Fox News host Tucker Carlson accused Beck of “sucking up” to Zuckerberg during the guided tour.

Maybe the fall of Beck and his empire can be summed up by this. The more he talked about Americans taking control of their republic, the more the peopled loved him and his message. But when people actually started to “do” something about it, like vote for Trump, or stand up to the government at the Bundy ranch, Beck turned against all action.

Beck won’t be missed by many. Certainly not by me. Let that be a lesson to any of the so called conservative new media elites. Americans expect you to put your money where your mouth is, and to not speak out of both sides of your face.

    I listened to Beck for the first time in years because he’s on while I’m at work – except for Aug 22 – the day I’m traveling back from seeing an eclipse. Beck’s first order of business was to moan about how we all made such a big deal out of it, and you can see it on TV for cryin out loud. After waiting a lifetime (literally 50 yrs) to see one, I was not disappointed and his remark was kinda like saying you can watch porn instead of actually having sex. Following his logic, we should never experience anything in real life if video of it exists.
    Then he was talking about his personal life. Failed relationships with father and family and how those shaped who he was and finally (30 minutes) linked that to how one can’t let civil war monuments trigger emotion, that real life events are way more traumatic. A good point to be sure, but I could sense the world tuning him out the whole way.
