Beck denies role in new "Spider-Man" ending

No, Glenn didn’t see the show for a third time in a single week. But has he cursed the “greatest show” he’s ever seen? According to news reports, it seems likely.

For anyone living under a rock, Glenn’s Spider-Man love has now appeared in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Entertainment Weekly. He first went to the show on Saturday and raved about it for a good thirty minutes on radio this week. He then went to the show again where he met U2’s Bono (Glenn does not own a U2 album) and suggested a new ending to director Julie Taymor.

Well, it seems like Glenn may have cursed the show that he loves so much. Following his visit to the show and suggestion of a new ending, news came out this morning that the official opening has been pushed back to March 15th.

Pat read the story, “So Rick [show spokesperson] this is Wednesday, all right?  All systems are absolutely go for the planned February 7th opening.  Then who goes Wednesday night and tells Bono, ‘Hey, I think you did a great show but you need a new ending.’  You need blah, blah-blah, blah-blah.”

“On Thursday evening Rick said the decision to delay the show was made after a meeting with the creative team during the day on Thursday and now they're changed the ending and it's not going to open until I think March 15th,” Pat said.

Glenn attempted to defend himself by saying, “It's a good ending.  It's a good ending.”

So let’s lay out the timeline. Show set to open in early February. Glenn goes to the show on Saturday, loves it, and goes again on Wednesday. Meets Bono and Julie Taymor Wednesday night and suggests a new ending. Then Thursday morning they decide to re-do the ending and push the show opening to March (editor’s note: I already bought tickets to the show in a few weeks. Thanks Glenn!).

Glenn was glad to see the media was so focused his love of Spider-Man than his analysis of Francis Fox Piven:

“Last night somebody said, the Wall Street Journal is covering your review of Spider-Man again.  …  How many people in -- this is all they have to do. In a week when the world is burning to the ground, check Frances Fox Piven... the world is burning down and all of these journalists in I don't know how many stories have checked now to see, A, if I'm an investor.  And one of the papers, maybe it was the Wall Street Journal last night, checked to see if I had been paying for my tickets.”

Yes, Glenn did pay for his tickets both nights. He is not an investor (he wishes he was).

But – and please don’t alert the media about this – he did get a FREE t-shirt!

UPDATE - Glenn issues comment denying role in rumored changes.

Beck defends himself by saying, "When I suggested a simple reprise to allow the audience to really feel the message, Julie Taymor excitedly explained that they were already working on a very complex ending including a reprise. She and Bono described the working plans, at worst I just pointed out that their new ending was genius.”

Beck went on to say that "Spider-Man will do to Broadway what Hitchcock did for suspense".

We at glennbeck.com have heard it all. “Blah blah blah, 8th wonder of the world." We also may or may not have purchased our tickets after his first recommendation and now may or may not see the new ending.

Thanks again Beck.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
