Glenn Beck: Political Activist Or More?

Fox News Channel talk show host Glenn Beck is expanding his activism beyond his talk show and radio show in a way that makes one wonder if he is considering direct involvement in the politics of 2012.

He had his first public gathering north of Orlando, and is set to promote seven conventions of supporters across the country, including voter registration drives, over the next year, designed to influence the midterm elections of 2010.

Is his purpose to sell books and himself, or possibly to promote his own advancement in politics? This is uncertain, but it is also leading to other conservative activists, including Laura Ingraham and Sean Hannity to stir activism by their followers as well.

Whether this involvement by talk show hosts will influence the Republican party, or even lead to direct political participation of media people in politics will be one of the fascinating developments of this next political year.
