Fox News commentator develops own online university

July 13, 2010

Fox News commentator Glenn Beck announced last Tuesday his new online academic program called Beck University, whose focus is on "the concept of faith, hope and charity" and "how they influence America's past, her present, and, most importantly, her future." Beck has called in some experts to help teach the classes, with topics on US government, history, and economics. Enrolment in Beck University costs $6.26 US a month for those who sign up for a 12-month subscription to Insider Extreme, which provides access to Beck's exclusive video content.
