Very Successful Jerk

Looks like there is a big market for being an asshole and a jerk.

On his daily radio talk show, Glenn Beck portrays himself as an average guy, a recovering alcoholic and a comedian who regularly injects humor into his conservative politics.

This week he can add another description: very wealthy.

Premiere Radio Networks, a subsidiary of Clear Channel Communications, is expected to announce today that it is extending Mr. Beck’s contract. Two sources with knowledge of the deal said it was valued at $50 million over five years, through a combination of salary and profit-sharing from syndication.

Just another reason not to listen to a Clear Channel Station. The Dixie Chicks trashing made me tune them out forever but just in case you are still listening to one of their stations maybe this will be the straw.
