Glenn Beck, a conservative political news pundit, as well as the CEO of The Blaze, walked right off the set during an interview with CNN after the host asked him about the future of his company.
During a chat with Brian Stelter, where they mostly talked about family separations, Beck became infuriated after Stelter said that his company began imploding and underwent another round of layoffs.
Beck said to Brian, “Wow, Brian. Thanks a lot,” and then went on to say it was one of the most “ridiculous questions” he’s ever heard. Beck then told the host that “we want to stop it” but Brian “wanted to play those games,” whatever the games may be.
Brian asked him afterward, “what game did I just play?” According to a report from The Daily Beast, Beck had tried to sell his company, The Blaze, and also tried to bargain with The Daily Wire.
Stelter told his viewers that he figured he would give Beck the chance to answer to those reports. And earlier in the interview, Beck, who used to work for Fox News, said that CNN was dividing the nation by selectively focusing on which immigration coverage to reveal.
Beck said that CNN was merely out to get ratings.”This is about saving our country,” the pundit explained, and the network should stop trying to divide the nation.

Following Beck’s appearence on Stelter’s talk show, the former Fox News commentator took to Twitter to complain about the apparent media bias.
The host explained that CNN’s reports easily could’ve been about the Obama administration as well, but the network has a significant anti-Trump slant.
As it was previously reported, over 2,000 children had been separated from their families in the United States and Mexico border near Texas. It is one of the biggest scandals in recent months.
