The arrangement was simply FreedomWorks paid Glenn Beck money and Glenn Beck said nice things about FreedomWorks on the air. I saw that a million dollars went to Beck this past year, that was the annual expenditure.
Former Freedomworks head Dick Armey • Discussing, in an interview with Media Matters for America, the financial relationship his group had with Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh, two men the organization paid millions of dollars simply to say good things about Freedomworks and the Tea Party. Armey calls the spending “ineffective,” stating, "If Limbaugh and Beck, if we were using those resources to recruit activists and inform activists and to encourage and enthuse activists, that’s one thing. If we are using these things to raise money; one, it’s a damned expensive way to raise money; and two, it makes raising money an end on to itself not an instrumental activity to support the foundation work that our organization does." So basically, Freedomworks pays a ton of money to the people that would be most likely to support the Tea Party anyway.
