Glenn Beck The Media Wingnuts

More Conspiracy Beamed Directly to Your Living Room

Glenn Beck is headed back to TV courtesy of Cablevision, reports The New York Times.

Glenn Beck’s Internet channel TheBlaze has been picked up by the cable system operated by Cablevision, giving Mr. Beck television distribution in the New York metropolitan area for the first time since he left Fox News in 2011. [...]

Cablevision said TheBlaze would be available to subscribers of its cable service, called Optimum TV, starting in late May. In a statement, Cablevision’s vice president of video product management, Bradley Feldman, said, “Optimum TV is the only cable provider in the tri-state area to bring our customers original programming from Glenn Beck’s TheBlaze, and the independent network will add more diversity to our strong lineup, providing our customers with more choices that our customers appreciate.”

It’s my understanding that all Cablevision subscribers in the affected area of infection will have access to the channel, meaning that every subscriber will be paying for it whether they want to or not. It will not be a premium channel that you must sign up for.

I suppose this is good news if conspiracy is your thing.
