Marginalized cry baby Glenn Beck is no longer satisfied with his national radio show and 300,000-plus online video subscribers. In an attempt to storm cable once again, the former Fox News host has launched a call to arms for his fans to lobby television providers in hopes they will carry his channel, the Blaze. “If we succeed then we change the media. If we change the media, we control the debate. If we control the debate, we change politics. And if we change politics, we change the country,” declared Beck, who’s currently only viewable on Dish Network, in an open letter. According to the New York Times, the campaign will “commence in phases and last for at least nine months,” like a pregnancy. But: “Such campaigns are attempted all the time by small, independently-owned channels, often with little success.” In which case, expect tears.
