Keith Olbermann OUT at MSNBC

Friday was a sad, sad day in the world of cable news as Keith Olbermann was fired from MSNBC and the network’s popular show Countdown came to an end. Not only did MSNBC lose one of their flagship program and one of their most popular hosts, but also Glenn lost some easy competition.

“Ladies and gentlemen, Keith Olbermann has left the building,” Glenn announced on radio this morning.

Glenn predicted Olbermann’s exit from MSNBC back in Novemeber.

“You are going to hear the liberals come out and start to throw MSNBC under the bus and throw them under the bus hard.  And here's why.  MSNBC is marked for death.  If it is sold to Comcast, Comcast will run it like a business.  If it remains liberal, it will just be a good liberal station.  It will just run things that will actually get ratings.  If it is ‑‑ if it's not, it will most likely just be a news channel or ‑‑ I mean, I don't know what they're going to do with it.  But it won't feature Keith Olbermann,” Glenn said.

“So now we know [Beck] doesn't know anything about television, either,” Olbermann said at the time in response to Glenn’s prediction.

Glenn wished Keith the best, but pointed out that Olbermann has a history of clashing with bosses. “From every indication, Keith Olbermann is the biggest pain in the ass in the world.  And nobody liked working with him.  And he was impossible to work with.”

Glenn told a story of the time he was leaving CNN and remembered that he thought that network should embrace their liberal viewpoint in commentary the same way that Fox News had embraced their opinion commentators.

“You know, when I was over at CNN, I said you guys are going to be left in the dust.  You'll be left in the dust.  Because Fox, while the news department doesn't have any opinion, Sean Hannity has an opinion,” Glenn said.

“But everybody thinks you [at CNN] have an opinion.  So why not just embrace your opinion or what they think.  Let your news be your news.  But stop with this nonsense that ‘We're objective.’”

“Because somebody's going to pick a side and they're going to steamroll you.  And exactly that happened with MSNBC.  And MSNBC chose a side, which left CNN in this middle ground.  Because they think they have this credibility that they don't.  They don't have that credibility.”

“I'd much rather have a person talking to me and being honest about where they are coming from and then I can decipher that from that position.  I can see what you are and then I can see what you're saying and then decipher for myself,” Stu added.

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.
