THE BECKONING

Glenn Beck’s media prowess continues to flourish via his new online broadcast network endeavor known as GBTV. He’s drawn an ally of note from CNN. Texas attorney Will Cain, who is already a CNN contributor, has signed on to offer analysis of the 2012 presidential election and other major political events during Mr. Beck’s two-hour, late afternoon show; he’ll also write commentary for TheBlaze.com, the online news end of things. An interesting aside, though.

Cain will also continue his current position as a CNN contributor,” the network notes, further evidence that hybrid strategic alliances between seeming rivals are becoming the norm among forward-thinking media moguls.
