According to Glenn Beck, The Blaze will be "a place, where people can find breaking news, original reporting, insightful opinions and engaging videos about the stories that matter most." Beck said that this weekend, the media covered his "Restoring Honor" rally; the way of it was frustrating for him.
Through a mix of books, radio, TV, digital media, and speaking fees, Beck is reported to have earned $32 million in 2009. Formerly of Breitbart TV, Scott Baker will be the editor of The Blaze. He told Mediaite that the site plans "news and information... commentary and opinion stories we're interested in that are being under-covered or not covered."
Glenn Beck wrote on The Blaze, "Too many times we see mainstream media outlets distorting facts to fit rigid agendas”. “Not that you've ever heard me complain about the media before. Okay, maybe once or twice. But there comes a time when you have to stop complaining and do something. And so we decided to hire some actual journalists to launch a new website."
Beck added that the website "will be about current news -- and more. It's not just politics and policy. It's looking for insight wherever we find it. We'll examine our culture, deal with matters of faith and family, and we won't be afraid of a history lesson."
