Just two days after his Beckapalooza, or the #doucheBeck rally, as we're calling it on Twitter, Glenn Beck rears his ugly head yet again, this time with a brand new "news" website, edited by former Breitbart denizen Scott Baker.

We talked to Baker today about what readers can expect from the new site, the team behind it and more. “It’ll be news and information,” he told Mediaite. “Some commentary and opinion stories we’re interested in that are being under-covered or not covered.”

People will inevitably make the comparison to Arianna Huffington – whether Beck’s role as figurehead behind the site will make The Blaze into a conservative Huffington Post. “The one thing pretty clear around Mercury [Beck's company] is that Glenn is not short on ideas or hesitant on input,” Baker said. “His input is already evident in how the site looks, and that’s what will continue. It will be a continual flow of tips and suggestions and encouragement.”

There's another corner of the Internet to avoid...is "TheBlaze.com" some kind of dog whistle? Also, the Huffington thing? Not so much.
