SALT LAKE CITY — Conservative talk show host Glenn Beck is teaming up with actor Vince Vaughn to produce a new reality show.
On Wednesday, Beck announced his new reality show "Pursuit of Truth." The show will take 20 documentary filmmakers who will compete for financing and distribution of their film. The show will air on Beck's TheBlaze TV in spring 2013.
"I'd like to see the stuff just isn't done," Beck said on his radio show. "And done right. And done without conspiracy. I'd love to see something on the Federal Reserve, the game that's being played there. I would love to see something on why capitalism is actually a good thing, why it's not a bad thing."
Beck said some people think he's crazy for teaming up with Vaughn, who is typically seen as a "crazy man."
Glenn, what are you doing with the crazy man Vince Vaughn? Yes. It's great, isn't it? I love it.
"That should make everybody's head spin," Beck said. "I know, that's what my friends say. Glenn, what are you doing with the crazy man Vince Vaughn? Yes. It's great, isn't it? I love it."
Beck said he's looking for filmmakers who want to "change the course of America by telling the truth that you think is never, ever told."
Beck is taking filmmaker applications via its website.
Sen. Jim DeMint resigns
South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint announced Thursday morning his resignation from the U.S. Senate to become president of the conservative group The Heritage Foundation, replacing current president Ed Feulner.
I'm leaving the Senate now, but I'm not leaving the fight.
–Sen. Jim DeMint
"This is a critical time for America and there is no organization in the country, in fact, the world, that is better positioned to convince the American people that the conservative policies that The Heritage Foundation has developed over the years are the solutions to the problems that we face as a nation," DeMint said to a group of reporters Thursday morning.
In a prepared statement, DeMint said it has been an honor to serve the people of South Carolina, but "now it's time for me to pass the torch to someone else and take on a new role in the fight for America's future."
DeMint said as president of The Heritage Foundation it will put him in a position to continue fighting. "I'm leaving the Senate now, but I'm not leaving the fight."
