Glenn Beck and his family attended a screening of Alfred Hitchcock's The 39 Steps in Bryant Park on Monday night, but the host explained on his radio show today that he was greeted with anything but a warm welcome.

"It was a hostile situation," he said, detailing how wife Tanya had wine "intentionally kicked on her back" and how a man pointed at Tanya and Beck's daughter and screamed: "We hate conservatives here!"

No one told the trouble makers to knock it off, Beck continued.

"I apologize to anybody who had their movie experience wrecked because of the people that found it so necessary to spew hatred," he went on. "But there's nothing I can do about it."

Creating a Groupon competitor seems like a strange move for a fiery TV and radio commentator, but Fox News' Glenn Beck is nothing if not strange.

The conservative may still have a few months before he leaves his talk show, but he’s already prepping for his next venture: a daily deals website.

Mercury Radio Arts, the production company that Glenn Beck controls, has officially launched MarkDown (dot) com. It's almost identical to Groupon.

Beck Markdown

Like hundreds of other companies, MarkDown provides a daily deal if enough peeps purchase it within a specified time. Its first deal is $20 worth of chocolate from the notoriously shady Chocolate (dot) com for $10.

Markdown also boasts a referral system. If a user refers a friend to the site and that friend buys something, the user gets a 10 percent discount on the discount!

Markdown is the place where I will be able to connect you directly with the products and retailers that I love,” Beck said on his website. “Best of all, Markdown is a place where my personal slogan and values will be brought to life.”

Safe to say Meghan McCain is not Glenn Beck's type.

The Fox News host mocked her recent skin cancer PSA for the Style network and even pretended to vomit when her name was mentioned. Classy.

Sen. John McCain's daughter, alongside other stars, appear in the spot in various forms of nudity. The point is that we're naked without sunscreen.

Beck was unmoved, feigning the urge to hurl.

He sarcastically said he was feeling ill from too much of a good thing or maybe he was trying "to imagine John McCain naked with long blonde hair."

"When I look at that, I think to myself, I get the point, put some clothes on," griped Beck, who suggested she wear a burka to "be extra safe."

Meghan McCain hit back, deriding Beck as "pathetic and extremely desperate for publicity." Her mom, Cindy McCain, also called out Beck on Twitter.

"I'm so glad Glenn Beck is leaving Fox," wrote Cindy, a skin cancer survivor (as is John McCain). "Enough vitriol and hate. Glenn you are no rodeo clown."

Seriously. Never mind that she's not really naked or that she's actually promoting an important cause, right Glenn? Come on dude. This is too much:

Whose side are you on?

Commentators everywhere keep on lambasting Glee, and not because of stunt casting or inconsistent writing. The show's latest high-profile critic? Glenn Beck.

On Friday, the Fox News host gave the show this "compliment" ...

"I've watched in stunned horror combined with a sense of admiring awe. It is a brilliant, brilliant show, but it is a horror show. Everybody in here is somebody your kids would want to be like, except everyone is sleeping with everyone else.

It's all about self-gratification... it's a nightmare."

Beck's attacks were just the latest on the hit show, with SNL alum Victoria Jackson and author Bret Easton Ellis delivering particularly blunt, harsh critiques.

As a result, the Fox musical dramedy got a vocal defense from the President of GLAAD, Jarrett Barrios, who told The Hollywood Reporter the following:

Controversial Fox News personality Glenn Beck has announced he will "transition off his daily program" on the network at an undetermined point later this year.

He will instead focus on developing other projects for the network.

Beck and Fox News released a joint statement regarding the decision, saying the final episode of Beck's show, titled Glenn Beck, will air "later this year."

Beck and Fox have not revealed the air date for the final episode.

The statement explains Beck and Fox News "will work together to develop and produce a variety of television projects for air on the FOX News Channel as well as content for other platforms including FOX News' digital properties."

Beck did not indicate if this decision was at all prompted by a sign from God. Speaking of such signs, how about that Japanese earthquake/tsunami! Wild.

Due to his jokes regarding the earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Japan, Gilbert Gottfried was fired as the Aflac duck and has issued an apology via Twitter.

This begs the question: will Glenn Beck face similar consequences for his remarks on the subject?

Glenn Beck is "just" saying... God is clearly punishing mankind for our sins.

On his radio show yesterday, The Fox News host labeled the natural tragic, which has taken thousands of lives, a "message being sent" by God. He explained:

"I'm not saying God is causing earthquakes... What God does is God's business. But I'll tell you this, whether you call it Gaia or whether you call it Jesus, there's a message being sent," said Beck. "'Hey, you know that stuff we're doing. It's not really working out. Maybe we should stop doing some of it.' I'm just saying."

What do you think of Beck's comments?

Glenn Beck might make Michael Lohan look like a mentally stable individual, but the Fox News host at least understands good public relations.

The conservative commentator made his first statement regarding Jon Stewart's Rally to Restore Sanity this week, likely aware that any negative sentiments would run counter his platform of freedom in America.

Glenn Beck and Jon Stewart: Who will you rally behind?

Referring to his Restoring Honor event August 28, Beck said:

"8/28 was a historic event for a lot of Americans. I hope that Ed Schultz, the AFL-CIO, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and whoever else wants to plan a march in DC have the same great success that we had with Restoring Honor."

So far, so good for Stewart and company. While it's silly to base too much on Facebook responses, the Rally to Restore Sanity has received close to 100,000 positive RSVPs on its Facebook page in less than a week.

Held on the anniversary of Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech and mocked by Jon Stewart as a "I Have a Scheme" event, Glenn Beck kicked off his Restoring Honor rally this morning at the Lincoln Memorial.

Pictured below during his opening remarks, the Fox News host said: "We are humbled that you are here... America today begins to turn back to God."

Aside from the implication that Barack Obama is anti-God, we'll give you a free subscription to THG for a year if you can tell us what the heck that means.

Someday, Glenn Beck might talk in numbers, facts and practical terms that don't include blanket, vapid, subtly racist statements. That day was not today.

In a speech prior to the event, Beck added that he feels like "God dropped a giant sandbag on my head. My role is to wake America up onto the backsliding of principles and values most importantly of God. We are a country of God."

Again, that sounds like a nice talking point from this self-proclaimed prophet, but does it actually serve any purpose, or have any meaning, aside from rallying conservatives to the polls in November?

The rally has been described as a non-political event, yet its keynote speaker was Sarah Palin. She took to the stage around 10:30 a.m.

This just in: Jon Stewart is not a fan of Glenn Beck.

On The Daily Show last night, Stewart tore apart the Fox News host and his planned rally in D.C. tomorrow. In the following video, the comedian labels the event Beck's "I Have a Scheme" speech. Even the harshest Stewart critic must admit: that's a darn funny pun.

Summed up, Stewart's primary beef with Beck boils down to a pair of points:

Glenn Beck and his minions will converge on Washington D.C. this Saturday.

The event, titled "The Restoring Honor Rally," will take place at the Lincoln Memorial and its goal - according to the event's website - is to "celebrate America by honoring our heroes." Simple and harmless enough, right?

But many critics are taking issue with the plan because it falls on the anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech. One must wonder how that icon would respond to the Fox News anchor, who once referred to President Obama as a "racist."

"Whites don't own Abraham Lincoln," Beck said in response. "Blacks don't own Martin Luther King. Those are American icons, American ideas, and we should just talk about character, and that's really what this event is about. It's about honoring character."
