Not only is Glenn Beck a complete jack ass (there are too many examples to link to), but his jack ass-ness earned him $32 million last year. And it really is all about the money. Beck is the subject of a profile in Forbes magazine. Lacey Rose writes:
With a deadpan, Beck insists that he is not political: "I could give a flying crap about the political process." Making money, on the other hand, is to be taken very seriously, and controversy is its own coinage. "We're an entertainment company," Beck says. He has managed to monetize virtually everything that comes out of his mouth.
