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.

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."
