Will talk radio survive the year?

With all the attempts to blame Glenn, Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, and other conservative voices for the Arizona shootings, one starts to wonder if talk radio will survive the year. Pat asked Glenn that very question during a break, and the radio guys addressed the issue on the program.

Pat said he doesn’t think talk radio will continue after 2011. “Yeah, I mean, the way it's going.  It doesn't look like it to me.  I don't know how we do.  How do we survive the year?  You've already got Clyburn calling for the Fairness Doctrine, you've already got Al Sharpton who started last year and wants to call Rush before some Senate committee hearing,” Pat said. “I mean, they are using a situation that has absolutely nothing to do with us, without a shred of evidence that he ever listened to anybody on the right, or the left.”

Glenn added that the slow regulation of the media is the textbook definition of progressivism. “It is bit by bit, step by step, it is progress,” he said.

When the Fairness Doctrine was in place decades ago, it nearly killed talk radio. “When the Fairness Doctrine was in force in, what, the Eighties, the way they did it was you'd have a conservative in the morning, then you'd have a liberal in the midday.  Then in the afternoon there's a conservative.  Then at night there's a liberal.  And it kind of went like that on just about every station.  And so you never knew what you were going to get when you tuned in unless you knew the schedule really well,” Pat said.

Glenn said that when they start applying the Fairness Doctrine to other industries, then maybe you can come to talk radio. “When there is the Fairness Doctrine in the universities, you let me know and you come to talk radio.  When you have to have someone with the other opinion standing in front of your children, you let me know.  See, they know exactly the power.  They know exact ‑‑ they know.  And they know the power of total indoctrination.”

“And if you don't think this can happen, you're fooling yourself.  If you don't think that they're going to regulate the Internet, you're just uninformed.  And here's why:  They already did it December 21st.  They're now writing the regulations for the Internet.  And nobody seems to care.  Man has never been freer to speak his mind but yet there are so many of your friends that just think, ‘Well, this will always be this way.’”

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.
