Glenn Beck never went to university, though that hasn’t prevented him from creating his own. Today Beck, the weepy, blackboard-scribbling Fox News host, launches his eponymous institute for online learning, Glenn Beck University, available to the curious and undereducated for $79 a year. Subscribers will receive access to online lectures on the subjects of “faith, hope, and charity”—the pedagogical approach is as yet unclear, though it seems to be pro-Mormon and pro-McCarthy—and are offered a forum to discuss the course material with other “students.” Reason senior editor Michael C. Moynihan watches the Glenn Beck Show for a glimpse at what students of GBU can expect to learn.
