Before the radio show started this morning, Beck went on his Insider Extreme and said:

“Mercury is about to be gigantic. Gigantic! Because look what all these people are doing. They’re just treating you like total idiots!”

Beck also gave a message to the media in his first segment this morning, which I’ve also included in the video below, that the reason his show is successful is because they don’t treat people like idiots, and that his business is about to become even more successful.

Now Beck has already commented this year that he wants to hire 45 more people at Mercury and I’m guessing that’s about The Blaze, his news division. But that’s just a guess. He has also put more emphasis on his company name, Mercury, as he now has it prominently spoken on his musical introduction to his radio show. Not sure what that means exactly, but it’s just something I’ve noticed and it feels like he is preparing us for something.

What does seem to be clear is that Beck is aiming his new endeavors as a response to the very biased MSM. I just wonder if one of his endeavors might include a cable or internet news channel that complements his online news site. Blaze News Network (BNN) anyone?

    hmmmmmm……is Mercury a publically traded company?

    • DisturbingBehavior

      No, and I don’t think Glenn would want to take it in that direction. Why risk anyone like Soros getting involved in your operations?

      Aside from that, I think Glenn might have a problem with the EPA coming in with hazmat suits to regulate his company rather than issues with any FCC or SEC regulations.

    I have to say, Glenn Beck is a very exciting person to follow. He just goes from strength to strength. The more the regressives attack him, the stronger he becomes.

    Looking forward to his future projects and developments!

  • Diamondback

    I’d virtually give one of my cojones to have ANY job helping Glenn and his team accomplish their goals.

    I’m currently unemployed for the first time in my adult life (started working at 14) and I just can’t get excited about just going out and finding “a job.” I have no desire to do just “a job” so the government can tax me and then deny me benefits I’ve paid for or use the funds I pay for things I don’t support. I really no longer care about money but just consider it a necessary evil to survive in today’s world.

    I need to find a job whereby I ‘believe’ that what I’m doing is going to make a difference for my grandchildren and secure the blessings of liberty to them and their posterity.

    If I can’t find such a job, I fear I’m doomed to heading off into the sunset somewhere approx. 30 miles south of Phoenix, AZ.

    It’s the only other alternative that even comes close to appealing to me at this time.

      I’m in the same boat man just in CA…

    • justpassnthru

      Hope something breaks for you soon – even if it does mean heading to Phoenix.
      I know what you mean about finding it hard to get excited about looking for a job. I spent last Friday filling out applications (AGAIN!)(AS USUAL)(SINCE 08)(SOl’) I sat there trying to conjure up positive responses, while fighting the discouraging thoughts that kept interupting. “This is going nowhere…..”
      It’s beginning to fell like we’re reaching the “Brother, can you spare a dime days”

      Sorry to be so glum.

        Same to you and liquidflorian….Keep the Faith! It’s hard, so very hard to believe things will turn around…but they will.

        I would love to see pockets of our unemployed teaming up and finding a way to beat the system and make an awesome living. Knowledge is Power and all those people combining brains and bronze gotta be able to create something.

        • justpassnthru

          Thank you for that.
          You know what they say. “Invention is the mother of necessity.” There’s a lot of talent out there. We just have to meet the right people.
          I share your optimism.
          And appreciate the encouragement.

          • justpassnthru

            No. No! The quote is wrong! It would only work in a Socialist Society.
            So it’s “Necessity is the mother of invention.”
            But Hu cares about that?

            Sheyww! Glad I caught that.
            By the way I was talking to somebody in the same boat today, who’s been gaining a lot of knowledge just by going back to the old ways of doing things…making soap and selling it.
            What a hoot!
            That’s America for you. We’ll just keep reinventing ourselves.
            Gotta love it huh?

      I am very sorry to hear about your troubles. We have been in that boat too many times over the last 30 years of marriage but doors eventually opened for us. What do you do? My brother in law has a small company in AZ but I don’t know if he is hiring.

      It is a blessing to be able to get a job that you really love but I have come to accept that the example of going forward, pressing on, working hard, not giving up and having faith that God will open a door is what I want to leave with my grandkids. I can’t control anything else!

      I will remember you prayer as well as the others commenting on this board that are in the same situation. I do hope the door will open for you soon!

      Send in an application, nothing ventured, nothing gained.

      If you are in Southern AZ look up the SAFE program. Pat Dollard. They rock, I LOVE those guys. Might not a paying job, but people of like mind to be with and support. Might lead to a job. One never knows.

      Try writing down on paper exactly the kind of job you want, writing things down is powerful…plant the seed. Follow your passions/interests whatever they might be. Definitely find something to do volunteer wise, it will make you feel better and keep the depression at bay, and it often opens doors to other things via networking, meeting new people etc. Just sayin…..

      Hang in there and keep the faith!!!

    I really doubt he’ll do anything that directly competes with FNC as long as he has his show there. He may, however, be looking at declaring independence from his radio distributor (Premiere, same as Limbaugh, last I knew) and starting his own radio distribution network. He might even bring on some other talent, not unlike the 4th Hour with Pat and Stu.

    But mostly, I think he’s building his Internet presence. That’s where you connect directly with the viewer/listner and don’t have to keep program directors and such happy.

    …consider the possibility ~ THE RIGHT NETWORK (hit the ether-waves late last summer), teaming up with Beck to get a ‘head-start’.

    I thought it was going to be about the planet Mercury. Blowing up or something.

    Hey, with Beck you never know.

    • justpassnthru

      These days, you never know!

      I thought from the headline it was about mercury as in teeth fillings and mercury in light bulbs….ya know someone getting more rich off those damn, stupid things. I wish they would repeal that stupid deal.

  • Anonymous

    Beck is such an original guy so you would think he could have come up with something better than Mercury for his company, Mercury Radio Arts. That’s so retro! :) I think my problem is that I link it with Ford Mercury brand from the 70’s and I had TERRIBLE luck with Mercury cars as did most of America according to Consumer Reports… filled-in black circles EVERYWHERE! :)

      He is a traditional, old school, metro kind of guy, which I think one reason why so many like him.

      What is that song about cruisin in a Mercury?

    • melthemean

      Mercury was named by the Romans after the fleet-footed messenger of the gods. According to mythology, Mercury, the Roman god was a messenger. He supervised all trade and commerce and bestowed profit or loss, according to each person’s worth. Quite appropriate, no?

    how about turning some of these thriller novels with conservative messages, that also view America and her citizens in a positive light, into blockbuster movies?

    • justpassnthru

      Good idea.
      I think it can be done.
      We’ll all be the screen writers. Can you book an agent Arthur?

      PS.
      Don’t take this as sarcasm.
      Look at the story of the inventor of Monopoly…anything is possible.

  • Mikemorrison281

    I think Beck thinks he’s going to either be fired or quit ClearChannel and has been preparing his empire to be totally independent from everything…maybe even Fox.

  • Anonymous

    They left would CROAK! BNN would be good. I don’t like their website though, I hate the pop-up on the right side of the screen and for some reason I don’t like the layout, comment section etc. It’s just not clean and easy on the eyes compared to other sites I follow. The Drudge is another bad one.

    I just wish w/the media that people would quit posting their crap. Everyone jokes about how no one watches MSNBC or CNN, yet everyday portions of their shows are seen and shown over and over everywhere. I want the MSM taken down. No one plays their material, no one will see it. Example…do not give Michael Moore the time of day or night.

    • DisturbingBehavior

      “Example…do not give Michael Moore the time of day or night.”

      This is a bit of a low blow:
      I don’t think you could stop Michael Moore from being seen. He thinks he’s so magnificent, he’d just spend his cash on food until he blocks out the day and we’ll be forced to see him during the (now permanent) night.
      Actually, that would be a great solution for kids afraid of the dark. If they turn on a light, they’ll see something even more scary.
