Sources say Time Warner is talking to Glenn Beck about a partnership with HLN. If a deal was reached, Beck's "The Blaze" would take over HLN's cable position. The Blaze is a conservative 24-hour news and entertainment network funded by subscriptions and founded by Beck, a right-wing talk show host who built a huge following on Fox.
Time Warner has also been in talks with online news network, VICE.
So the bottom line is, there's a lot of talking and rumors, but no one has written a check. So there's still a chance we could wake up to the Al Sharpton Network.
