News is shifting to a model where people have more control over their own content. On Friday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Bill O’Reilly shared an update on his latest project and explained why it’s important for him to bring news to people without “intrusion.” Glenn Beck remembered starting his own TV network and how people told him to stay locked into the old school model of cable news instead of making TV available on mobile devices.
“Those days are over,” he said of the shift. “We’ve laid the groundwork and the rails.”
O’Reilly talked about a new show prototype where he was in a studio and talked with guests over Skype, giving him far more independence than he would have with a network.
“We don’t want any intrusion: corporate intrusion or Media Matters intrusion or threats,” O’Reilly said to Glenn. “We want to control the product, as you do.”
