Glenn Beck tried to purchase Current TV before Al Jazeera actually completed a purchase. Current TV rejected Beck for ideological, not financial reasons.

Glenn Beck's network The Blaze tried to purchase Current TV, but was rejected for being Glenn Beck's network The Blaze. They had the money, but not the sanity, and were told that "the legacy of who the network goes to is important to us and we are sensitive to networks not aligned with our point of view."

This one went as it ought to. Glenn Beck buying Current TV would be a small market version of Rupert Murdoch buying MSNBC. Conservatives who are angry about this ought to ask themselves what they think Fox News should do if George Soros offered to buy them. Glenn Beck should be happy enough that he has gotten the platforms he has. In fact, I can only assume that the point of his offer to buy Current TV was to generate publicity. After all, when was the last time we talked about Glenn Beck?
