(Newser) – Glenn Beck has launched a news and opinion website that supporters believe has the potential to become "the conservative Huffington Post." TheBlaze.com is being edited by former Breitbart TV host Scott Baker.

Beck says he plans to be heavily involved in the website's day-to-day maintenance.

At launch time, Gawker notes, seven of the front-page articles were about Glenn Beck and his projects. (Read more Glenn Beck stories.)
