Former Blaze Exec Sues Glenn Beck; Claims Beck’s ‘Paranoia,’ ‘Erratic and Reckless Behavior’ Destroyed Company

Lloyd Grove writes at the Daily Beast about the latest legal trouble to hit The Blaze founder Glenn Beck — this time in the form of a countersuit by one of Beck’s most loyal and trusted advisors. Christopher Balfe, who was the chief operating officer of Beck’s Mercury Radio Arts and the chief executive of The Blaze before Beck unceremoniously fired him and then sued him, alleges in a new counter lawsuit that Beck’s “erratic behavior, excessive spending, and mismanagement” drove his media empire “into the ground.”
