Beck Markets The Blaze to Cable and Satellite Carriers

Touts it as a libertarian news alternative


Glenn Beck has launched a campaign to bring TheBlaze, his online libertarian news channel, to national cable and satellite television.

"You probably pay good money every month to your TV provider for access to channels like MSNBC and Al Jazeera America — channels that you might not watch, or even agree with," Beck writes in a letter on his website, at which he encourages fans to ask television providers to carry the channel. "Adding TheBlaze will ensure that you and your family have a source of news and analysis that you can trust and that doesn't betray your values."
