Glenn Beck's Super Fun Time Playhouse Coming Soon

How imagine at least one segment of Glenn Beck's forthcoming show for kids:

HOST: "Hey kids, what did Thomas Jefferson say powers the Liberty Treehouse?"
KIDS: "Refreshing it from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants!"

It's not Nick News, The Electric Company or even the Magic Treehouse. Starting next Monday, talk show host Glenn Beck hopes to educate a young audience with his new children's program, Liberty Treehouse. As he told Politico, his kids' show "will not only entertain children and young adults, but it will respect them and their knowledge and passion for history, art, science and current events."

In a recent interview with Newsmax, Beck said the one-hour program is intended to teach children aged eight through 14; and it's supposed to help parents share values "that go with the United States government in an entertaining sort of fashion." It's available on his subscription web channel, GBTV.

Beck's foray into children's programming is the latest vehicle from GBTV, which boldly proclaims "The Truth Lives Here". Last June, his company Mercury Radio Arts formed the streaming media channel, where Beck moved his eponymously named radio show after parting ways with Fox News.
