If you distrust what the mainstream media is telling you, and you like a right-leaning tilt to your news, TheBlaze is something you should check out. With a lineup of personalities including Glenn Beck, Dave Rubin, Eric Bolling, and Mark Levin, it’s a destination for those who want ammo in their efforts to own the libs.
What is TheBlaze?
Founded by conservative provocateur Glenn Beck, TheBlaze started life as an internet streaming network following Beck’s departure from Fox News in 2011, and has since evolved into a full media company, with the TV network, officially called Blaze TV, only being once piece of it. Though it’s emerged as a home for those who want to be free of Fox News’s slight guardrails, it’s also noteworthy of late for launching Tomi Lahren’s career—she moved from TheBlaze to Fox News Channel in 2017.
