Getting the story right

In the midst of the media circus that has emerged following the shooting in Arizona, Glenn feels that there have only been two journalists that have really gotten the story right: Megyn Kelly and Wolf Blitzer.

Glenn first touched on Megyn Kelly and her interview with Sherriff Dupnik.  Before the interview, Sherriff Dupnik said that the suspect was motivated by heated political rhetoric from radio and television. Megyn Kelly asked, “I want to ask you about that because that's something you've mentioned the past couple of days, and I just want to ask you whether there is anything you've uncovered in your investigation so far that suggests this suspected killer was listening to radio or watching television.”

Pat chimed in, “When [Sherriff Dupnik] said that the violent vitriolic rhetoric, the hate speech in this country is what's behind this.  So she's asking him, is there any evidence that you have as a sheriff, as a law enforcement officer?  Is there a shred of evidence?”

Upon further prodding from Megyn Kelly, Sherriff Dupnik admitted that there was no specific evidence that pointed to any rhetoric on television or radio motivating the suspect’s violent actions.

Glenn said, “So here's a law enforcement official that is playing judge and jury.  It is, ‘I have been doing this for 50 years.  It is in my expert opinion that this is what's going on. No evidence.”

Stu added, “When you're telling the facts of an ongoing investigation as a law enforcement official, no, that's not where personal opinion makes the world round and round.  I'm sorry.”

Glenn then switched gears to Wolf Blitzer who, in his coverage of the story, made sure to say there was no evidence that Jared Lee Loughner was in any way a Sarah Palin fan who would have seen her SarahPac ad.”

“This is after one of the CNN reporters just spent about three minutes going on and on about Sarah Palin and her involvement in this, how she targeted these congressional districts and had them in the crosshairs, you know, and it was all about reelection.  And then finally Wolf poses the billion dollar question,” Pat said.

Blitzer asked, “Is there any evidence that the suspected shooter in this particular case was a Sarah Palin fan?” to which his guest had to admit there was not.

Glenn took the opportunity to say why he chose to stay off the air and not comment on the story until his usual radio show on Monday morning. He explained:

“As I was sitting in Spider-Man and I had no details, by the end of Spider-Man, I knew that it was a Democrat that had been shot, I knew others had been shot, I knew that a 9-year-old had been killed, I knew that they had caught the gunman but I knew nothing about it.  I immediately text messaged everyone:  Not one word until the facts are out.  No speculation.  That's what responsible people do.  Could have tweeted.  I've got The Blaze.  GlennBeck.com.  I could have walked over from the show over to Fox.  They would have put me on the air.  I had no facts.  Thus only an idiot has an opinion.”

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
