Yesterday, I read Rush’s segment celebrating 28 years on radio and my reaction was he was laying the capstone on his career. An important aspect of negotiating is convincing the other party that you are prepared to walk away from the negotiating table.
No specifics on the deal.
Meanwhile, Glenn Beck is suing the guy who ran TheBlaze from 2009 to 2014 for squandering money. He is not the first show biz person to be so occupied with being on stage that he paid little attention to the money flying out the window. A few clips of Glenn saying things like “I don’t know where the money for this will come from”, “my advisors say this doesn’t make sense”… And demanding his staff find a way to do things when there was no money to do them… Shockingly, his projects were funded with borrowed money.
Suing the guy who was your business manager has to be horrible for morale and recruiting management. Someone like Stu has watched all this and would rip Glenn apart if forced to testify under oath. Stu is to Beck as James Golden is to Rush – keeping him in check by challenging his unfounded assertions before they go “over the line”. Glenn Beck imploding does not make me sad.
